for all you sonnen-haters:

Quote:
You know what? When I get in there, I just want to know who's better," Sonnen said. "I just want to feel these other guys. I want to see what the hype's about. If they would have called the match [in his favor because of Jones' broken toe], I wouldn't have had any illusions. I knew in those first five minutes who the better fighter was.

"I'm sure it would have gone to a rematch and we'd have had to do that again, because it would only have been right to Jon. But I got my questions answered tonight."

Quote:
"I've had a lot of fights, and they haven't all gone my way," Sonnen said. "But I've only been beaten up twice and that was No. 2. And he beat me at my own game. It's frustrating and it's tough. That's it.

"I was [surprised by him]. I'll have to watch the replay to see what he did. He was on my leg before I knew it. I don't know how he set it up, if he threw a punch. I don't know what happened. He was just in on my leg. I've been in that spot all my life, and I haven't fallen down like that. I got up, and he did it again. I got up and he did it again. I don't think I've been taken down three times in my career, and he took me down three times in one round."

The only one that would even be interesting is Gustafsson and that's strictly because of the similary reach/frame. Skillwise Jones rips him apart. There's really nothing at all left at 205 for Jones and I really don't see anyone on the horizon that will be able to challenge him at all. This might be the first time ever that UFC has to take the belt off someone for being so good they killed the division

Used to be my favorite division but as you just said, Jones just killed the division completely. No one is even anywhere close to his..

As a swede I would love to see Gustafsson get a shot but Jones is just so much better that it's not even funny.

Jones fight against Sonnen was never even the a little interesting, it's was like a lamb going at it with a lion.

And Jones is a unique situation because he's so damn young. St Pierre, there's people who have a chance against him (I'm damn near a GSP stan and even I think Hendricks might be the one to take it) and either way he says he's only gonna do 2-3 more fights then hang it up. Silva is untouchable at 185, but he's getting up there in age and says he'll be gone after a few more fights. But Jon is 25 YEARS OLD. The fact that he's already cleared his division out and still has a good 10 years left in his career is just unfair lol.

I watched the fight last night (Balls Channel). Jones is a F*cking beast. I love to see Jones fight Silva @ Catchweight.

Silva called Dana White last night after Jones's victory asking for a fight. Saw it on yahoo.

Jones has asked for Gustaffson next. Says the only thing he still has to prove at light heavyweight is that he wins because of skill and not just because of his size/reach, so he wants to fight someone who's taller and has a similar reach. No interest in a Machida rematch apparently

I'm a huge Tito can but other than cardio I can't think of a single advantage any version of Tito has on bones

I'm not that interested in seeing him beat Machida again either. I'd rather see him against Gustafsson, Teixeira or Mousasi, but since he says he's looking at superfights/HW fights after his next defense, then Gus makes the most sense.

Please man.... anybody is just a punching bag or a ragdoll for Jones/GSP/Silva.... no competition whatsoever for them, but they have to fight because.. well.. they get payed...

Only those other weight classes are kindof up for grabs...
