Dolce: Sonnen ‘to beat the piss out of Jon Jones’

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Famed nutrition coach Mike Dolce recently spoke to radio about how Chael Sonnen is progressing in his training camp for his bout with Jon Jones:

“If the world were able to see what’s going on in training camp — how he’s looking, how he’s performing — I think [the] odds would change really quick. But what they’re doing, what most people do, is they look at his last year or so, his last fight and they write him off as a result of that. They look at maybe some headlines and they write him off as a result of that…. Chael’s 10 years older, and it’s the big brother mentality, you know? Chael’s been beating up guys like Jon Jones his whole life, his whole career, and that’s the mentality we have going into it. He’s going to beat the piss out of Jon Jones for 25 minutes no matter what….

It’s going to be a nasty machine, and we’re training Chael for 25 minutes of non-stop aggression; no matter what gets broken, no matter what gets ripped open, no matter what part of his body gets torn off, no matter how much blood is there, no matter how many bones crack. We are pushing him and training him to power through that, and I don’t think Jon is prepared to power through that…. Chael’s going to walk across the cage to give Jon Jones a big ole’ wedgie, and freaking give him a noogie, and Jon’s not going to be able to do anything about it. That’s the type of fight we’re looking for.”
