    Jones vs Sonnen

    Whoa! Looks like the fight between Jones and Sonnen is a go for April 2013. Jones has tweeted he had a change of heart and that if the fans want it he should do it. Dana White made the announcement yesterday. I really do not see Sonnen getting past the second round.

    Who else thinks this is just a money deal and a way for Dana to make Jones tow the line? How can you explain Sonnen jumping over the LHW list and go straight for a title shot?

    Wasn't the issue that Sonnen was the only one who accepted the fight at (then) short notice?

    Complete bullshit. Sonnen is 0-1 in the UFC at LHW and hasn't fought the weight class at all for a half decade. Has there been a less deserved title shot in the UFC?

    I guess I should just quit training to win fights and to be exciting for the fans and just go to **** talking school.

    yes, for the initial proposed fight with only 8 days notice, Sonnen was offered to Jones. Now this fight gives them TUF coaching gigs and a fight after for the title. Just does not seem right. I am sure the feedback from the fighters in the UFC will be dramatic.

    Oh I wouldn't worry to much he may be in the cage but I highly doubt he has much of a "shot"

    Maybe Tank Abbott vs. Moe Smith... Jennum vs. Howard, too, if tournaments count.
