Chael Sonnen is warming up to Jon Jones, who now admits that the "American Gangster" is deserving of his 205-pound title shot at UFC 159 even though he has not competed in the division since 2005. Yes, 2005 (inside the Octagon).

"I'm going to change my response and for the first time I'm going to say yes. I think Chael does deserve a shot at my title because he asked for it and he begged for it. He made it happen and I've definitely beaten pretty much everybody in my weight class and Chael said ‘let me give this guy a run' so I'm going to say yes, Chael you deserve it."

Yes, ask for the fight. They were asked, and they all had more important things to be doing. Chael was just the first one to say yes.

So the real way to deserve it is to keep saying no like everyone else?

I applaud the UG Blog as always, but what you meant to say is:

*Jon Jones is warming up to Chael Sonnen.

As it's currently written, the first sentence indicates that Chael thinks Chael is worthy of a title shot.

Man. Jones is becoming phonier and phonier. All for the almighty dollar. I've noticed that his twitter activity has really picked up recently and he's acting like a used car salesman. Phone Post

No matter how many times he tries to imply it, he has not beaten Hendo, but he has avoided him.

Pairing the two together for a season of TUF serves several purposes, not the least of which is Chael educating young Jon in the art of promoting a fight like a professional. Don't be surprised if later int the season there is drama between the two and smack talk before the fight, but keep in mind that was all filmed and in the can months before their current appearances together on live tv where they're all chummy.

If you clowns want to blame somebody, then blame Zuffa management. It's obvious that they are pulling Jones' strings and that he doesn't want to get thrown under the bus by his employer again

Everybody here lined up to shit all over Jones in the aftermath of that 151 debacle while praising "company man" Chael. Now that Jones is obviously doing Zuffa's biding in effort to get back into favor with them, according to the same people who keep praising Chael for knowing how to play the game, that makes Jones an even more disgusting phony.

Why do you people even bother pretending that you're not going to attack Jones no matter what he does?

Zuffa knows people will waste money and time watching these disgraceful sham of a fight.
And please.. why is every season of TUF the craziest, most intense tv experience yet?
Sonnen and Jones might as well be the globe trotters show or wwe.

Sonnen may have talked his way into a title shot; but no one at 205 can beat Jones. Sonnen will give him as good as a fight as anyone else can. Phone Post
