    I think Sonnen will upset Jones, upsets happen to everyone, even great fighters. It’s MMA and anything can happen in a fight.

      Usually upsets happen when one person has a punchers chance, and we all know from his fights that Chael has pillow hands.

      Only way for Chael to win this fight is to take Jon down and I seriously doubt he can do it, and I wouldn’t be suprised is Jones throws him around ala Bader.

    wow people are giving Sonnen the credit he deserves. I’m shocked! These betting odds were alot closer than Belfort and Belfort almost snapped Jones arm!

    If this fight even happens, Dont bet with your heart….Get ur money in now. How can sonnen win other than a luck punch? He didn’t beat silva, twice now people think he can beat jones. Interesting. I gues if those that think sonnen can get the W, they will look like “heros” if that happens. Keep hating jones and you’ll be disappointed for years to come.

    Rofl. Sonnen is a joke.

    A cheat, a felon & a snitch.

    Jones is going to wreck him in quick order.
