"I think there's a big gap between them," Sonnen said in an interview with Jay Mohr on FOX Sports Radio. "I think that Jon Jones is considerably better, I think he's the best talent our sport has ever seen."

"Jon comes out there with something new every time," he said. "Some trick that it appears he's making up. Stuff I've never seen."

"I am 100 percent offense and from the second the referee says, ‘Go.' I will. I will come across and I will bring the fight to him," Sonnen said. "I may go down, he's a good fighter I may go down, but I promise you I will go like a gangster and I will be firing the entire time."

"......by TKO in the very first minute, and STILL........"

I'd put the number of fights Sonnen has left at two, and then he can retreat to his FOX dek job where he belongs.

I really despise this guy, everything but his work ethic. (I can dig that)

Just out of interest, have you been watching this season of TUF?

It really has opened my eyes as to who Chael really is. I'm a fan of his now after seeing how much he cares about the guys on his team and how he helped Urijha deal with the psychological problems he was having. Sure, the guy runs his mouth but that is just a character he plays, the real Chael Sonnen is a great guy.

Plus he is one hell of a fighter, I have always enjoyed watching Chael fight because I like his style but I've never really been a fan becasue of the way he conducted himself in front of camera. That's all changed now.

In for 10 pages of arguing and making fun of Chael, when he's just selling his fight. Phone Post

For all the trolling and proclamations by his fanbase, Silva is so far in Chael's head he could be a tumor.

I think everyone including chael knows he's not beating jones.

This fight was set up for a tuf ratings booster and a break for jones to let the lhw division sort itself out. Phone Post

I think theres an angle for a future fight with anderson v jones, like dana has got sonnen to try n rile anderson a bit.. Dont get me wrong im a big sonnen fan n hope he beats jones but i just cant see it so when jones wins there can have a recent common opponent to build up a debate for a super fight with them Phone Post

I have not watched TV, nor had it, in like seven years.

So, no.

But, funny you should say that, I have heard people on here mention Sonnen comes off quite well, so maybe I can search around and find some stuff.

I just hate the fact he cheated with PEDs in his wrestle-fak fifth round collapse in his loss to Silva, and then in the re-match, he made it look like a work.

I like quiet and humble martial artists, not people like Sonnen.

When Chael retires from fighting he will be a suit wearing Zuffa employee.

You heard it here first.

Agree on the Rogan podcast. When he drops the gimmick he's actually somebody that is very likeable. If he stopped selling the fight and was just the all american guy trying to win a title for his father's memory he'd be loved by 99% of the UG.

I agree with this. I absolutely love the guy as a commentator but he almost never steps away from WWE or 'Anderson Silva' this or that at least a few times a day.

He's gonna rida Anderson's jock until he retires.

I don't think I've seen or heard him even mention Anderson's name since their second fight until now.
