Please tell me this as well as the last 24 hrs of news is a anonymous prank or something. How the hell does this make any sense. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. Phone Post

The champion of a division should not be a coach on TUF. This just means Jones won't be defending his belt for 6 more months. At least Jones is finally giving the fans this fight....at a time that no one wants it anymore.

Allucard - 
AyyAnt - Do people really want to see this fight? Why not just send the welterweight Demian Maia to do Jon Jones lightwork for him.

So let me see if I got it right... Jones is a coward for ducking Sonnen on short notice because it will be a mismatch if he gets to prepare? What's next? It's only fair if Jones fights with an hand behind his back?

Also, Silva is a middleweight who wants to remain one. Because it's better for his legacy yes (notice how the words Silva and legacy don't make me become an angry hillbilly) but also because he has many members of his team (who prepare him so well for fights) fighting in that division including Minotouro Nogueira. So forget about that. GSP is closer in size to Silva anyway and it's a better fight in significance because both are over 30 (Silva pushing 40) whereas Jones will have DECADES to find his defining fight.

Don't be immature hateful trolls with an agenda. Please, GSP would be mad at you. Because he's a true warrior, he doesn't need you sneaky bastards playing "GOAT" for him.

The only problem with all of this is that Anderson himself said he'd rather fight GSP because it's an easier fight. He wants to take the easy way out, and that's pretty lame for the "GOAT"

This match up is what can ruin the UFC. Sonnen who's biggest win is bisping, loses to an injured Silva the gets man handled in their rematch after getting the fight due to his mouth. Can't defend subs to save his life. He was par at best in mw. Now he thinks he can play with the big boys after dropping weight bc he was horrible at lhw. This is pathetic. Goes to show you having a mouth out weighs actual skill. What's he going to teach them how to steal and use drugs. Good job Dana! Hope Jones retired him.

Wow... What a joke. I guess the UFC titles mean nothing. Anderson doesn't feel like defending his, and Jones gets two 185ers in a row. Phone Post

So is the ranking system increasingly being abandoned for revenue and ppv numbers? Am i wrong? This just feels a bit desparate. Phone Post

The biggest thing that Jones vs. Sonnen proves is how much UFC still values TUF. But the stakes are raised. If it still doesn't draw? Uh-oh.

Gokudamus stole my name - I cant believe Dana will sit there and say with a straight face that Chael Sonnen arguably 1-3 in his last 4 MW fights is deserving of a fight with the LHW champion

It really is ridiculous and IMO a total farce.

Don't know if it's been said yet, but I see this as a measuring stick to convince Anderson to fight JBJ later on. If JBJ doesn't destroy Sonnen in 30 sec they'll use that to talk Anderson into the fight. Phone Post

jonflesh -
UGCTT_Fraser_Finlay - So wait... Jones and Chael are coaching TUF?

What if Chael loses to Forrest? He still gets a title shot? Phone Post
Looks like the Forrest fight is off since taping starts on the 29th. Phone Post
Wooooooooooow!

That is ridiculous! Chael's first fight back at LHW is a title shot with Jon Jones. Lol! Chael is a fucking genius. Bravo Mr Sonnen. Bravo... Phone Post

PR - 
MichaelMeyers - Who wants to see this? Besides Chael, of course.

More proof that talking shit is more important than actually being a good fighter.

+1000000

WHAT A JOKE. WHAT A WAY TO STALL THE BELT.

Just terrible all around.

Is it April Fool's Day by any chance?

THIS.

 

WHAT A DISAPOINTMENT.

The fuck is this? A giant plug in the LHW division. I fucking hate it when champions do TUF instead of defending their belt.

Fuck you Dana! From the bottom of my grimey heart you bald bozo!
