Default Jon Jones set to coach and fight Chael Sonnen April 27th

I can't wait for this one. Chael coming off a loss and fighting in a weight class he hasn't fought in forever.

Once Jones beats him he's the GOAT right?

I hate this. Most undeserved title shot I can think of. I really don't see Sonnen being able to do shit against Jones. He is going to get smashed.

LOL @ this shit.

More proof that the UFC is an entertainment company and not a legit sporting organization.

And LOL @ Jones' "punishment" for "killing" UFC 151. A bunch of free money and publicity.

2nd consecutive fight in a row that Jones is fighting a middleweight that hasn't done a thing to earn a shot at the title. Gosh darnit though he is fighting the great Chael Sonnen, he must be the greatest!

This is a money fight, everyone involved knows this. The only thing we can do in this situation is hope one of them gets injured.

Boxing is also an entertainment sport.

I dont see your point?

Well it's not like Jones has ducked anyone at LHW. I don't blame him for taking a very winnable fight, given that he is getting a full training camp, a chance to coach TUF, and a chance to shut up the idiots that think he is scared of Chael. It just shows that you can talk your way to a title shot, and that is just stupid. This is supposed to be a sport, where you should have to earn your place.

Gus, Hendo, Machida, even Davis would have all been much more legitimate. ****, even Glover.

Its Sport Entertainment. If you can draw the crowds, youll jump the queue. We saw it with Brock, now we're seeing it with Chael. Not saying thats fair, but its the way it is

A. Dana HAS TO get the Tuff Ratings back up. This is the worst season ever. And Chael Sonnen will do that.

B. Dana HAS TO get some kind of revenge on Jon Jones. And if he can't get him whooped in the Octagon, he will at least force him to be verbally abused and mocked on national television every week for a couple months

C. To be honest, until Glover beats Rampage and gets a title shot, there is NOBODY else I'd like to see fight Jones. Machida is tied up with Hendo.

Is this legit? Has it been confirmed?

If so, that is a steaming pile of bullshit. There are so many more interesting fights for either guy at LHW.

The only possible good thing that can come out of this is that once Jones is done raping Chaels dick hole, Chael might be dumb enough to talk himself into a shot at JDS.

Silva must have beat chael bad so that chael doesnt even want to fight at MW anymore and is instead aiming for the LHW title

This is ****ing stupid but, I dont watch tuff anyway. Jones cleared his division and I think he should move to HW since silva won't fight em.

Sonnen will be in his element. Working out with a TV crew around him constantly. It'll be interesting to see how they edit Jones' personality.
