IMO neither Belfort or Sonnen has any backing to fight for the LHW title, but at least with Sonnen we get sound bytes to enjoy. With Belfort, we get the slight chance that he will KTFO Jones

This has got to be up there on the "Unwarranted" title shots. And the actual moneyline is at roughly -800 (average). I've seen it as much as -925 at BookMaker and -750 at Bovada in Jon Jones favor.

With all that being said and Vitor having a very slim chance, I'll be routing for a new champ, Vitor.

Vitor is a VERY bad stylistic matchup for Jones. Sure he is the lesser fighter but Jones wont have shit on his speed and wont intimidate Vitor with his antics.
