I'll wait and laugh at anybody trying to make a complelling argument that this fight is legit.


Here is a good reason for anyone at LHW now to get a title shot...


Shitty decision IMO

What i really hope for is new material cuz he just repeated the same shit with Silva so i really hope he doesnt say the same stuff and just changes the name at the end of the sentence

Terrible. The UFC has turned into shit in the last couple years. This cow's out of milk and is filling buckets with piss. I'd rather watch Bellator at this point.

Hey, Brandon Vera and Shogun put up a highlight reel fight and they're not viable to challenge but a middleweight who just got trashed does?

It won't be as funny as the fan boys calling Jones the GOAT after he beats a middleweight coming off a loss, and doing nothing to earn shot at the title. Just look at what the fan boys said about Silva after he beat a guy not even in the top 20. I can't imagine what the MMA boards will be like April 28th.

What happened to Hendo? I know he got injured but wouldn't he be ready by Spring? I would think the winner of Rua-Gustafsson deserves the fight more than Chael.

Cormier at LHW? Or maybe some other HW who is willing to move down to challenge Bones? Matt Mitrione? I'll take any of those guys over Chael.

Maybe I'm missing something. Chael serving as a last minute substitute is fine. However since we're running on a normal schedule we can find better opponents for Bones.

I guess the bright side is Jones is still young; plenty of time for him to be matched up with fighters who are far greater than Chael

The only reason this fight is happening is because it's a desperate effort to breathe life back into TUF. I just don't get why they couldn't use Forrest/Chael. Forrest has a more TV friendly personality than Jones, and it isn't a mockery of a fight.

Whatever. At least we get to see Chael get beat up.

Both guys have already been publicly molested by Jones in totally noncompetitive fights. And LOL at the suggestion that Vera would been seen a a legit defence.

Myself, I don't like to see this fight. Though I expect Chael to look alright at LHW, because he appeared VERY drained for Silva 2, and gassed after one round.

Having said that, he clearly hasn't done shit to warrant a title shot, and I would not have made the fight were it up to me.

Though it's also not like there are any obvious contenders who DEMAND a title shot. Pretty much all the top guys have been massacred already by Jones, and the likes of Gustafsson and Davis aren't quite ready.

It's a big-money fight, but I wouldn't have made it. I would have given Henderson his shot, and thrown Chael in with Machida to fight for the next one. And April seems like a HELL of a long time away, to book a fight NOW. Jones' arm must be more ****ed than we thought.

If Chael can do it, theres no reason one of the greatest Silva can't

I agree with everyone else, this is pathetic and a disgrace to the title

What a Joke. Sonnen talks his way into another Shot... can anyone tell me what he can do too win this fight. He sure the hell wont KO him. Wont Sub him....Might have a chance to take him down..but other then that...oh..ya he got crushed last time out at a lower weight. Good jub at putting more crap out UFC.
