this without a doubt a tough fight for sonnen. jones has excellent wrestling which means if he can stop chael's TD's chael could be in some trouble. although i think chael knows this and will probably have a game plan on how to get a hold of jones.



As for gameplans Im not so sure Chael has much of one at anytime....except to try to get opponent down...

the only gameplan to beat Jon Jones is to go in swinging for the fences...



Hopefully we get to see Jones' very first triangle sub win.



Only way I see that happening is if Jones slaps it on from mount. Chael's got good instincts on when to shoot the td, but there is no way he's explosive enough to get Bones on the ground in my mind.

My guess is we see Jones give him a measured beating a la Rampage, complete with mid-fight mercy choke.
