I didn't agree with the Vitor fight and really don't agree with Sonnen fight. At least Vitor had history of being the LHW champ and fighting top 10 LHWs. Sonnen fights at MW because he wasn't a very good LHW. He hasn't beat one person I would ever call a top 10 LHW. Giving Sonnen a LHW title shot shows fighters that talking pro wrestling style trash talk will get you a shot at the belt. I know fans want to see the fight but is it for the trash talk or because you really think it would be a competitive fight. Now if you gave Sonnen a fight with one of the top 10 LHW and he won then sure give him a title shot. But to be honest out of all the top 10 LHW I'm not sure I would pick him over any of them.

I still want to see Hendo get his chance at Bones for Jones' next fight. The timing should be right and there is still unfinished business for both. With Hendo's age we wont have the honor to see him fight too much longer. I wont be happy with any other opponent for Jones' next opponent.


You may soon become unhappy, as the winner could very well be Machida in Chida vs Hendo.



Yeah, I know, but I am hoping that fight doesnt happen until after Hendo takes Jones Belt. But if they do fight, I'll pick Hendo over Machida.
