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"

Its a good way to try and revive TUF...Chael will make that about as interesting as possible. I like Sonnen but yeah least deserved title shot ever...

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

I don't know watching Sonnen get his face smashed in is going to be an awesome thing.

Randy Couture vs Tim Sylvia?
Brock Lesnar vs Randy Couture?

PS: Jones is fighting Chael Sonnen. Silva just fought Stephan Bonnar...the only way the universe can make sense if for Nick Diaz to unretire and fight Jose Aldo. GOZER THE GOZERIAN HAS SPOKEN!

"The more I realize how bad the fans want to see me fight Sonnen the more I am beginning to disregard whether he deserves it or not"

"A part of me wants to do it for the fans the other part of me feels as if it delegitimizes the importance of championship"

"Deserve?" I don't wait, I take. You're not the BEST, you're just NEXT."






Welcome to life. We don't deserve things, you get what you get

And let's understand, not one of those fighters said, 'Hey Dana, I'll fight Chael. Hey Dana, let me prove that I am the No. 1 contender. Let me fight that guy.' Not one of them.

They all sat there and said their little things. But I called everyone one of those bastards out and I'll call them out right now.

I have no problem getting a tune-up fight and slapping anyone of those guys around, including the karate kid.

Brock Lesnar vs Randy Couture?
Couture was not only a former champ in two divisions but had rather more than zero wins at heavyweight in the UFC. Brock was coming off a convincing win in the same weight class, not a savage stoppage one weight down...

Tank, similarly, had actual heavyweight fucking wins on his record.
