Does former UFC fighter Chael Sonnen know something the rest of the world doesn’t?
The ‘Original Ganster’ himself recently said in an interview that former UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, would be returning to the octagon ‘a lot sooner than you think.’
Sonnen has a knack for predicting things, so, do you think he has some inside information that would lead him to make that statement, or do you think it’s just Sonnen being Sonnen?
Here’s what he told News.com.au:
“I think Jon Jones is gonna be back a lot sooner than you think. He’s still got to get through a court date and anything could happen there — including jail time. If he gets jail time that just kicks the can down the road farther as far as his return. He’ll definitely be back and he will be champion again. He’s a young guy that behaves as a young guy. Some people get success and they change, I don’t know that he’s changed. He was behaving like a knucklehead before he was champion and he behaves like a knucklehead now. He’s a young guy and I think a little bit needs to be considered there. He’s a fist-fighter, he fights inside a steel cage I’m not totally sure all that’s expected of him, and why? He’s a very nice guy and that story never gets told, it seems like whenever he does something bad there’s always a camera around him but when he does something nice it just goes unnoticed. I know him pretty well and he’s a nice guy — he just behaves like a knucklehead and to me that sounds like a pretty regular person.”
When/if Jones comes back, does he get an immediate title shot or should he have to take a non-title fight first?
