He tested positive after the first silva figh meaning he was roiding in training for it. There is no reason anyone should ever be a fan of that pos.

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 said he was a good company man because Dana asked him to stop humiliating Jones and he did.

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.

Yeah, Jones doesn't need help doing that.

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.
