You all need to stop bullshitting yourselves.  You don't watch TUF and you aren't going to watch Season 17 no matter who is coaching.  You aren't going to sit around on Friday night so you can watch FX.

Trying to throw your biggest draws at a timeslot your target market doesn't watch just shows how stupid UFC's marketing can be.  It's been good about branding the Octagon but stuff like this "throw stars against the wall and hope they stick and save TUF" strategy is amateurish and reeks of desperation.

Tomato Can - This is actually probably a less lopsided fight than Silva/Bonnar but it still sucks.

 

Really? LESS onesided?

 

Chael has NOTHING for him, not even a chin to stay conscious.

Bonner AT THE VERY LEAST had a chin and a winning record.

 

thinking about it, Bonner - Chael would be the fight they SHOULD make.


RJ-

You know you're my buddy, but I think you're being a little unfair to Chael.  I know I am biased here, but lets' not forget that Chael is the only person that has actually challenged Silva.  So, don't count him completely out of a Jones fight.


LOL, unfair? Fael is a cheater and a real scumbag of a human. me telling it how it is is not unfair at all.

also, this could very well be the easiest fight for Jones since coming to the UFC. and I am 100% serious when I say that.

tell me what Chael can even remotely do in this fight to win?

Yea, I see it as a bit less lopsided. Silva was just on a totally different level from Bonnar, and had already destroyed a top 10 LHW in Forrest Griffin.

Sonnen has at least showed that he has top level skills, albeit at a lower weight. He's basically been the #2 MW in the world for a very long time.

Dman3456 -  The bad news is once chael loses he will become a joke. 3 title losses, what is he gonna talk his way into fighting JDS next? Phone Post

Sadly a month ago I would have said 2 titles losses, what is he gonna talk his way into fighting Bones?

It's like watching WWE, or worse yet, boxing...sad day for the sport.
Yeah its true. Honestly chael was afraid of forrest. That sounds ridiculous but he already has lost to forrest and if he beat forrest now it would not be impressive at all. Phone Post

see, thats where we differ, I dont consider Chael to be ranked anything close to #2 ever. and think he was gifted title shots because mouth breathing americans soaked up his schtick.

Dana said in August that Chael wouldn't talk himself into a 205 title fight.  LOL!

 

UFC President Dana White was a guest this morning on the “Dave and Mahoney” radio show in Las Vegas on X107.5 and White stated that Sonnen will not talk himself into a light heavyweight title shot.

“He is a long way away,” White said. “He is not coming off the Silva fight and talking his way into a 205 lb world title shot. He is going to have to beat couple of the best in the world. If he beats Forrest Griffin, we will shoot him right into the top five. Let him fight some of those guys there and see what happens.”

How the hell is Chael going to put up with all of Jones' self righteousness for weeks on end?

I guarantee you he is the coolest, nicest human being ever.  No one who has ever spent any time with Chael will ever say a bad word about him.  He does countless things for chairty and other things that never get published.  

As for whether he can win the fight or not, for everything I say, someone will play contrarian and tell me Jones can do it better.  All I am saying is that it won't be as lopsided as people think. 

Of course people are welcome to disagree, it's just my opinion.

+1 for a Friday Night Fights. GREAT idea. I'd rather watch 2-3 weekly fights than TUF any day. Dana, make that shit happen.

Come on now. I don't like the guy either but he's beaten Dan Miller, Okami, Marquardt, Stann, and Bisping, and he's won a total of 5 rounds against Anderson Silva when nobody else has won a SINGLE round against Silva since Hendo did almost 5 years ago.

I stand by my original statement.
