Chael is the only one that would be able to put Jon on his back. I mean seriously Jon wrestled D3 and Chael wrestled D1 that's a whole different weight class I watch wrestling all the time and if I saw any thing it's D3 has no competition what so ever so if any one says Chael has no chance looks like it will be an upset of the century

Maybe if it was a wrestling match Chael might win, its a fight though and Jones has already dispatched several Division 1 wrestlers.

I think Sonnen gets finished whether the fight is standing or on the ground.

Jones via sub or tko gnp....a shame too because I would love for him to get taken out! Not because I dislike him like most, just to shake up the division and to get more Sonnen soundbites!

I think Chael will give him a fight. I Do not believe Jones will humiliate him like Silva did in the last fight.

Is anyone out there impressed with the new look TUF series. The last couple of series seemed to be a little repetitive and even a hard core MMA fan like myself was beginning to get bored of it, though i would always tune in. This new show with a character like Sonnen with a Champion like Jones sets a new look on the whole front. Although we know what to expect on Chael's side, Getting to see Jones teaching being a young athlete himself should be interesting too.

Seems like some changes have been made so that the show feels new and improved and judging from the season Premier, i got that feeling and was impressed !!!

Spot on.

Maybe.. MAYBE Chael is a better pure wrestler.. but Jones physical advantages will make it far from a forgone conclusion. Besides dont forget how bad Chael is with the jits.. Jones long limbs will give him an advantage on the ground
