Sooo stoked about this!

There's talk they might be on NBC Sports Network. The name sounds a bit cheesy to me, World Series of Fighting. World Series of Fighting?

Sonnen is a liar, a cheater and a convicted felon. Oddly enough, he's going to came away from this with a better image than Jon Jones. All Sonnen did was accept a fight he never even should have been considered for. Somehow, Sonnen looks like a hero while other guys who also would have accepted are ignored.

LOL at someone calling him a good company man for this. He accepted a fight he didn't deserve and shouldn't even have been considered for. He got handed a wonderful opportunity on a silver platter.

And somehow jones is a villain but the other guys who refused that fight are ignored. It makes no sense to me.

I used to like Sonnen for his comedic value, but now I am starting to hate him as a person. He is a complete douche with no morals. Trying to make Jon Jones seem like a bitch is too damn low.

Hes playing a character. Just like Floyd mayweather does in boxing. The problem is he doesn't have Floyd's skills. He's not an elite or even great fighter. He's a very good fighter who can't finish anyone. Honestly he's the middleweight version of Jon Fitch except Fitch is a little better.

what?

Sonnen trashed the country of brazil and made of fun of their little kids playing the mud BUT calling jon jones out to fight is too much for you?

His trash talk to jones has been very very mild.

Yeah but he was prepped to fight a completely different fighter. I think he'd have smoked chael but there was no reason for him to take that fight.

This exposed a bigger problem the UFC is facing. The reason the UFC/Mma has gained so much on boxing in the last few years is that their cards aren't nearly as shallow as boxing cards. This helps prevent can backlash when you end up with a flash ko or a bad fight in the main event because the whole card is worthwhile. For the last year or so, Dana has gotten away from that philosophy and gone with one fight cards and this time it bit him in the ass bu he won't man up and admit it was his fault

Not having power is different from not throwing punches.

He should have took that fight hes the champ and the champ is suppose to fight when healthy no matter who.Jones was getting pushed hard by the UFC being in their commercials, getting sponsored from them and also getting HIS title shot on short notice too and shogun didnt refuse.

Its not completely jones fault but for sure he is to blame for not taking the fight.

Where are you getting that the champ is supposed to fight anyone anytime bs?

And it was on 6 weeks notice, not 8 days. Jones agreed to fight anyone on the 22 which is the analogous situation to the rua decision to fight him.

Where are you getting that the champ isnt suppose to welcome all challengers anytime anyday with a 10 week training camp bs?Tito fought vlad on what 6-7 days notice?

Thats cool that he agreed to fight anyone on the 22nd makes since sense he just got a shit storm thrown at him for not fighting on the 1st.
