face to foot technique - 
Zed Wayne Zed - Are there any other Jones' fans on here?

I feel like I might be like the only one?

Man, Sonnen has a TON of fans, cray.
Im a big fan of jones, his talent is undeniable, and after watching him on tuf on a more personal level I think hes gained alot of fans. People have to understand how young he is, he will grow out of the cockiness I think Phone Post

I find calling Jones out on cockiness hilarious considering some of the things Chael says.

Willin - 

It's amazing how people act like Chael has a mental deficiency to find a way to lose. He has an incredible wrestling record. He's fought tons of guys and won most minutes of each fight he's been in.

When he fought the best fighter alive, Anderson, he won for for 23 minutes straight via hard work and was exhausted when he got caught by a submission. He was effectively the WEC Middleweight champion but didn't officially receive a belt because Paulo Filho was a bum who couldn't make weight.

Chael doesn't have an issue with finding a way to lose. He constantly challenges himself more than the vast majority of fighters and occasionally gets caught in a submission. Oh well.


It's because of his dominance that people question his mental makeup. Chael has at least half-a-dozen losses on his record where he was flat out dominating his opponent before pulling defeat from the jaws of victory. He's like the NFL quarterback who is known for throwing fourth quarter interceptions or the MLB relief pitcher who dominates in middle relief but sucks as a closer. There is something in his mental makeup that prevents him from succeeding in big moments.

Also, there is nothing 'occasional' about Sonnen getting caught in a submission. 67% of his losses and 20% of his fights overall end in him getting caught in submission. That's 'on the regular', not 'on occasion'.
Or... he's just not as good as Anderson Silva? Or as good at BJJ as Demian Maia?

What a fucking fascinating concept, I know. Phone Post

Nobody thought that Chael would do what he did to AS in the first fight..Jones needs to understand that Chael is a threat-anybody at that level is- and he better hold at least an ounce of repsect for Chaels ability. Phone Post

He would be a threat if his primary weapon wasn't useless against Jones. Anderson doesn't have Jones's wrestling, he just has everything else.

This is a style matchup and Chael is on the recieiving end.

I'm also surprised nobody has called out UG Blog on their bogus title. Where did Jones says "Sonnen my weakest opponent to date"? We all know Chael would beat more than half of the guys on Jones' record anyway.


good one,lol. you cant really believe that...o your serious? hahahahahahahahaha

LMFAO

Crazy shit to bring this up with a 17:1 T/E ratio! IMO

At the end of the day I could not bet the rematch because of this fact!

Moreover, Sonnen to face a much better wrestler here. Even if JBJ spends some time on his back, so F'In what? !!!

Lol, no way Chael is a weaker opponent than Shogun with his current knees or that gift fight Jones got with Rampage, or Vitor on like 2 weeks notice. I think Chael has a better chance than Rashad did too, since Chael won't just sit back and get hit. If anyone at 205 can get inside that reach and put Jones on his back it will be Chael. Phone Post

Jones has 12 UFC fights. I'm pretty confident Chael would beat Gusmao through Bader which is 7 already. I'm 50/50 on Shogun, depending what condition he's in. Rampage he'd beat without a doubt. Machida maybe not because of his running away style. Rashad would be 50/50 and I'm pretty confident he'd beat Vitor. So what's not to believe? Phone Post 3.0

Oh come on, not you, too. There are much funnier hype jobs to add shtick to than this one. Go join UKTT or something, those guys are hilarious. The WWE hype job thing is just fucking embarrassing. Phone Post
I don't think this fight should be happening or that Chael deserves it. It's just not Jones weakest opponent and I never thought Rashad had a great chance with his size, timidness or chin.

If I've learned anything about mma it's that you don't count out people at this level. Phone Post

It won't be interesting at all, imo.

Jones and Silva's gifts are completely different. Jones will be able to use wrestling where Anderson could not.

It's a fight,anything can happen.Regardless of the odds,it's always a 50/50 chance for either fighter.
Jon Jones is a great fighter but he is not unbeatable.
