Chael Sonnen has highlighted the almighty task facing him at UFC 159, insisting light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones is "considerably better" than Anderson Silva.

Silva is widely regarded as the greatest fighter on the planet, having set all manner of records as the promotion's middleweight champion, beating several 205-pounders along the way. He holds the most wins and title defences during a UFC career spanning seven years.

The Brazilian is frequently linked to a superfight with Jones, who looks equally as untouchable at light-heavyweight having beaten former champions in Mauricio Shogun Rua, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans, Rampage Jackson and Vitor Belfort.

Is Chael giving Jones a complement? I figured when I opened it that he was gonna say Jones isn't half the fighter Silva is. And then to say he may lose in the same story, not used to this from Uncle Cha Cha

Minus KO power in his hands and feet well his striking isn't even close to Silva. Maybe in 5-7 years it will be on the same level. Still no one does what Silva does. NO ONE..

That is an interesting comment to make considering he just lost twice to Anderson. I was expecting to see that backwards when I clicked on it.

Hold up, Chael thinks JJ is better than Andy and Andy just embarrassed Chael. Why are we watching this fight again?
