Sonnen On Jones: He Could Beat Tyson And Ali At The Same Time

“As great as Jon Jones is, I don’t think he realizes how good he is. He could beat Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson at the same time. News flash buddy, you are the best. Maybe Tito Ortiz had a couple more wins, but he didn’t have the competition he’s faced. If I feel pressure, yeah, there’s a lot of pressure. This is a tough guy in a tough environment. That’s the sport. I don’t earn title shots. Title shots earn me. I don’t go after main events, main events go after me. Whether I earned or not or if I deserve it, I take what I want and that’s it.”

During yesterday’s UFC 159 media conference call, Chael Sonnen, showed nothing but praise for his upcoming opponent, Jon Jones.

We’ve seen what happens in MMA vs. Boxing matches, but could Jones really best two of the all-time greats at the same time??

    Jon Jones is good but hes nothing compared to Mike Tyson.. Chael Sonnen is just talking poo because he knows hes in trouble lol.

    • MIKE says:

      Chaels talking about a real fight. Jones would throw Tyson on his back a punch a hole in his face. If it was a boxing match tho tyson would knock Jons head off

    every battle is won before it’s ever fought. So Sonnen just lost. It’s all in the mind chico.

    he knows jones is the best, comparing him to tyson or ali? in the cage tyson or ali wouldnt stannd a chance. in the ring is a diffrent story

    Jones striking sucks.He only lands because he can hit u from across the octagon.Shitiest back kicks ive seen in the octagon.And on top of that scumbag front kicks to his opponents knees.Not impressive

  5. dru says:

    Jones would whoop either one of them in an mma match but not in a boxing match. Remember kimbo slice vs ray mercer.

    Everyone there is a small but big error this is misquoted Sonnen said Jones could beat Tyson and Ali in the same day go listen for yourself im just saying whoever wrote this article i’m not sure if you just heard it wrong which would be hard or your trying to make it sound worse but i would change it if i was you. P.s What Sonnen said originally is still pretty bold.

    frickin’ envious goofball – namedropping black champions (& heros) like he’s actually comparable. you’re not worth their dick cheese after a hard day at the gym. your a draw b/c there are waayyyy more idiots out there then intelligent types. & the rest just want to see you get your ass kicked. call up the WWE bud, cuz this Saturday you’re done.
