<blockquote>STEVIAS SEX TOY #2 - 

Do you guys not understand that besides chael and glover nobody else wants to fight jones, they're scared!!!!! I myself am pumped for this matchup,yeah Jon is better all around but chael is the best wrestler in MMA let's see if he can get bones down. <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


</blockquote><br /> Exactly. All those young guys who are hyped to the stars, where are they? Machida, where are you? Dan Henderson, how's the knee? The UFC doesn't want to make these guys look bad but Dana already came out and said "No one wants to fight Jones". They expect people from other divisions (Silva, Belfort) to come and do what were supposed to do? Gustavson, where are you?<br /><br />All I see is people asking the wrong questions, they should be asking where is the stacked division ready to dethrone Jones. You know, guys his own weight...

I really wanted to see Chael on TUF for a long time, against Bisping or Wand maybe. This is just ridiculous though, he in no way should be coaching against and getting a title shot against Jones. What a slap in the face to Machida and Hendo.

Coming from a Chael fan, I must say I'm disappointed. It was alright for a last minute "save the card" fight, but having this makes no sense. This is his first time at lhw since 06(?), and he wanted to make a new run at lhw, and they give him Jones in his first fight? So when he loses this fight, then what's next for him?

Jones is going to have 10 inches of reach and probably about 30lbs on him, not to mention Jones has 100% TD def. So I really can't see Chael getting a take down. I know a fight is a fight and anything can happen, but this is going to be a lot of hype for not much of a fight imo.

Lasko - 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.

Are you saying Jones is so good it's only fair if he fights unprepared or in short notice? Like take him out of bed 3:00 AM take him to Alabama where a crowd of hating, drunk rednecks is booing him to the cage to fight both Chael Sonnen and Dan Henderson? Teach him a lesson huh?

$$$ beats rankings by far, apparently.

To be fair to Zuffa though, the only big money match they had with Jones outside of this was vs. Hendo. Well, Silva too, but that wasn't going to happen.

After Hendo you just had people Jones had completely dominated that he'd have to rematch, or:
- Gustafsson (a non-draw who has to get past Shogun first)
- Davis (a non-draw who needs a win against a big name)

I'm personally not a fan of this decision. The build will be entertaining, but I'd prefer to see the top ranked guys get the title shots instead.

LOL Jones' "punishment" for "killing" UFC 151: a bunch of free money and publicity.

Too risky. They know he will lose to most 205ers, so they are going to hype this joke of a fight now and cash in now before it is too late.
