Sonnen: Jones was warned

source: UFC Tonight

"I don't know. Here's the bottom line, he should not have been pressured into this. I did everything I could to warn this guy. I told him ‘Hey I'm coming to the division' and he should have packed up and left it. He talked about going to heavyweight and he should have done it because now he's waited too long and the man has arrived."

"Listen, here is what you need to know. This show [The Ultimate Fighter] has some tremendous young talent on it. I will be taking 50 percent of that talent and teaching them how to fight. The other half is going to be taught how to be selfish, entitled brats like Jones. The good news is that when it is all over, I'm sure Coach Jones will throw a hell of an after-party."

"What you need to know, Todd, and what Jon already knows, is that I got the biggest arms, I got the greatest charm and I do the most harm. I'm better than Jon Jones, I'm better than Sean Combs and I'm better than John Holmes. And little Jon Jon, the little leprechaun, has my belt I'm coming to take."

lol.... in fact, I do find that prospect kinda funny, to be honest - it is of course part of Dana's masterplan to increase Jones' popularity (after everyone gets so fed up of Sonnen's mouthiness) that most folks will hope to see exactly that end. Jones is quite probably going to be a champion for years to come and Dana, who has no doubt accepted that probability, wants to raise his popularity for the obvious financial reasons. The likelihood that Jones will indeed make short and messy work of Sonnen is no doubt factored into Dana's plan.

didnt munoz pull out of their fight so he had to fight stann or bisping? i may be mistaken on that but it isnt sonnens fault he gets these fights. as far as ive ever seen he is about as game to fight as anyone could be. filho, silva x2, maia, marquardt, and bisping are a whos who of unsafe fight choices for a wrestler with questionable sub defense and he fought all but silva and won.he is probably going to get beaten but i dont see how anyone could hate the guy for talking when hes shown he will fight anyone at any weight any time. that is something very few fighters can say

No No NO. Please Dana no more fun Please everyone else: DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE; IT WILL ONLY GET THEM TO FEED US MORE GARBAGE IF YOU DO ! Help me make them give us Jones- Silva, or Jones-Rua, or Silva-Weidman. It can only happen if you boycott shit like this.
