Sorry but sonnen is nothing but annoying in my eyes so to have to listen to him week after week talk about what he's going to do to Jones only to get an absolute beat down come fight Time does not interest me in the slightest.

To put it into perspective its no different to having a tuf with bisbing and Silva as coaches and listening to bisping talk week after week how he can beat Silva before getting ko within a minute come fight time

Except that Sonnen is great at trash talking and Bisping is terrible. I can understand why someone that isn't a fan of Chael or doesn't find his trash talking amusing would not like this move though, but I personally find him hilarious and he is the undisputed king of MMA one liners.

I watch TUF regardless of whos coaching so I am uber pumped to see Sonnen poke funof Bones while Jonny tries to act like the humble christian selfless nice guy he tries so hard to convince everyone he is.

Show will be fun. Fight will not. This is desperation on Zuffa's part.



Exactly how I feel.

Chael will make it entertaining because that's what he does. But from a sporting perspective it doesn't make any sense.



We all just watched Silva vs. Bonnar clearly the UFC gave up on making sense



Maybe we can get a Bisping/Benavidez grudge match for real


Seriously though, as someone said before; this is a huge slap to to face of the contenders at 205. Machida would have made a great coach, and the two have a history in the ring, not just one man's skill at selling a fight.

If you can understand that people don't like Chael and his mouth why would you assert your opinion as fact as the "King of MMA one liners" as if the sport needs that pseudo-intellectual garbage or that somehow validates his trolling. I would guess that you don't really understand because you dismiss those who think he is just a wind bag.

I never dismissed anyone that thinks he's a windbag. Read the post you quoted, then find the part where I said "I personally", then find a reason to blame this on religion somehow.

So Sonnen gets a fight with the LHW champ without a single LHW win? fucking zuffa.


Belfort got a MW and LHW title shot after no recent UFC wins in that division

God this is dumb

Why?



I cant speak for others, but I think its dumb for Chael to get a title shot without winning or even competing at 205 for many years.

With that said, I'll watch it

I don't like it for a few reasons:

1) Sonnen's last fight at LHW was a loss, and now he's number one contender?
2) Jones is fighting two middle weights in a row? Neither of them is called Anderson Silva? C'mon.
3) I'm not intrigued by the match-up at all.



EDIT: Moreover, not only was Sonnen's last fight at LHW a loss, but so was his last fight at MW too.

Plus, he's coming off a PED suspension too....

Putting the disclaimer I personally doesn't excuse anything, it's like the people who say "Don't be offended" right before they say something brutally honest or dishonest. And sure religion skews the other parts of peoples critical thinking skills so it might be to blame here

I keep seeing the word "deserve" and "rankings." I mean those two words go together like "Greatness" and Jon Jones......totally irrelevant....and useless.

Don't you guys get it yet?

This is Chael's world and you all are lucky enough to be a small part of it.

I'm still waiting for Cooler to stop masturbating and rubbing himself with holy water....actually, I want to see if his skin melts.
