Hendo Calls Jones Stoppage Unjust for a UFC Title Fight

Jon Jones defends his title and keeps the strap via TKO ref stoppage during UFC 159 main event which took place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey April 27. Referee Keith Peterson saves Chael Sonnen of a burtal beating or calls it too early? Chael Sonnen told the crowd he had no problem with the early stoppage. Sonnen’s a longtime friend and training partner at Team Quest, Dan Henderson, thinks otherwise

Dan Henderson is scheduled to face Rashad Evans at UFC 161 on June 15th at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

    Thats all I have to say about thaaat

  2. Donovan says:

    It was premature and some of those punches werent making it through flush, but at the same time wi 33 secs on the clock Chael didnt look like he was getting out of there in time anyway. If Chael didnt have a problem wi it nobody really shld. Its easy for anyone to say he clda survived, but he knows himself best.

      Ask Sonnen’s face if those punches/elbow got thru or not. The way I see it, if they were not getting to his face….Sonnen is one ugly fella. Watch after the stoppage and you will see.

    Chael Sonnen didn’t deserve to fight Jon Jones anyway, glad the referee stopped it.. What a pointless fight.

  4. K2 says:

    I would have loved to see Chael get pounded in the face for another 30 secs….

  5. Sec says:

    Definitely premature. He was totally free to move. Jones wasn’t even really asserting his position. Chael could have spun 90 degrees and grabbed him, easily. That’s what I think he was going to work towards too. Ref really didn’t let this one play out at all though. It was a pretty even match until Jones’ big power double. Sonnen made Jones work harder than Machida did. But you all know Sonnen… once he’s in a ball on the floor, he usually doesn’t have it in him to escape. He takes unnecessary beatings.

    If the ref had looked down he would have stopped the fight earlier.

  7. HelpMeRhonda says:

    If Bones was fighting on one big toe, they shouldn’t have stopped it, they should have paused it and replaced Sonnen with Kro Cop, play Wild Boys, and let him start kicking away.

  8. confucius says:

    i was honestly kinda confused why this dude was reffing a title fight. It should always be big john or herb dizzle.

  9. toe jam says:

    it was an early stoppage weather chael should’ve been in there in the first place or not. love chael or hate him let’s be real. pretty much every ref that’s name isnt herb dean or john mcarthy or josh rosenthal “even though he is going to prison and will never ref again” that i know of pretty much suck and have probly never been in a fight or if they have they got beat down and feel sympathetic so they stop it early or they are a little psycho and like to see people get choked almost to death or beaten untill almost dead. i was neutral on the fight and yesthe ref dropped the ball hard on that one
