Mike Dolce, who was in Brazil this weekend to support clients Vitor Belfort and Nik Lentz was interviewed by ImerioMMA.com about the upcoming Chael Sonnen vs. Jon Jones light heavyweight championship fight.“

Everybody thinks that Jones is bigger than Sonnen, but that’s not true," said Dolce. "Sonnen walks at 240 lbs, almost the same as Jones. I’ve never seen Sonnen so strong and motivated in my life, he’s training harder and harder. Chael is an extremely organized and focused guy, he’s ready for the fight and he’s going to be stronger than Jones on the fight day. A lot of people will be surprised.”

“There is still three months before the fight, but Chael is already training the hardest. If Jones is thinking that the fight is going to be easy, he is wrong. I think that Chael will put him down and will show his power in the fight. I expect that."

There is no way he's 240.  That means he's heavier than JDS.  I've seen him on Fuel, he's not that big.

A guy that cut to 185 is now 240 lbs ripped? Must have t level issues.

According to Dolce he's as big as these boys (Chael is Cain's height).

I just don't see what Dolce is trying to accomplish by making these outlandish claims that nobody is going to believe.

Anyways who knows, I just find it hard to believe that he weighs as much as JDS despite being 2 inches shorter.

It's true that the size mismatch in this fight is overrated. Chael has been a decent sized LHW fighting at MW for the past few years. However, he's not 240. At least not in any kind of shape. Neither is Jones. We all saw what Jones looks like when he weighs 230 in that pic he tweeted last summer where he had no definition in his body whatsoever and looked like some dude who doesn't even train.

Dolce needs to chill with the hyperbole.

Didn't Chael cut from over 200lbs while at middleweight?
If he has to make 205, who's to say he isn't at least 220-225lbs maybe even 230 at this point? Phone Post

So they're lying about his weight your saying? Phone Post

I'm not saying anything.  I just find it hard to believe he's that heavy.

Dressing yourself must be a pain when you fluctuate 55 lbs. during the course of a year.
