"I think Chael has a great opportunity to win this fight, actually," said Couture on MMA Uncensored.

"Technically, I see a similar style fight as Anderson Silva," said Couture. "If he wades through it and can make Jon Jones wrestle him, I think he can win that. I think he can do it, but he needs to make it a wrestling match, start to finish."

"This is a business, and Chael Sonnen is gonna bring it and hype up any single fight he's in," said Couture. "I think Jon Jones, in denying him the fight on eight days notice, made it inevitable that they were gonna have to fight at some point."

Sonnens wrestling didnt help him with his 2-2 lhw record. Jones by easy sub following brain hemorrhaging elbows.

Jones is a good wrestler and although Chael may be better overall he still has to deal with Jones reach which can more than make up for Chael being a better overall wrestler. Jones is great at using leverage with those long limbs to wrestle and it will give Chael trouble!!! Chael can maybe steal a round but Jones will prob stop him by the 3rd round!!!

This comment makes no sense to me. Why, was accepting the fight on 8 days notice gonna make Jon not have to fight Chael?

You were actually right with teh first part of this...the second not so much...

lacks any power and Bisping handled Sonnen I dont care what anyone says and I cant stand Bisping....

SOnnen could not beat Matt Hamill in wrestling I bet...just because chael was a member of some wreslting team means notta....

Who says if Jon Jones didnt try out he wouldnt make captain....

Randy is like everyone else...cant stand to see someone so dominant....Funny how randy gets teeth knocked out by Machida but then Machida gets choked out by Jones...

Jones reach in wrestling and the wide base makes him ten times the better wrestler....Sorry Randy but go ask a wrestling coach if that wide base and reach are huge factors in wrestling....

Oh and Randy theres a reason Jon Jones is a -750 favorite....Chael cant beat him in any area period....

the reason chael doesnt stand a chance is he wont even get a takedown...

I am a believer that in every fight Jon Jones tests himself...I believe his goal maybe to flat out out wrestle Sonnen....

Chael wont be able to get his arms around Jon Jones anywhere below his waist...

Jones long legs establish such a wide base Chael doesnt have a chance....

Jones will toy with a guy like Chael until he gets bored....

I think a lot of fighters sometimes make mistakes toying with guys....Sometimes I get a feeling that a fighter can tell opponent lacks power so turns in into practice thinking he has no chance of losing...

After training for 3 months I think Jon Jones doesnt want to end a fight but would rather get some training in with a guy really trying against him...

Basically if he wanted he could take anyone down in a second and rain elbows...

I think he might hurt Chael....This maybe the first fight Jones faces someone he truly does not like....

Also I think behind the camers Chael will tell Jones that anything he says will be for TV and dont take it personal...

After seeing Chael and Bisping I seriously cant believe this is gonna be a slight resemblance to a fight....

I guess that front kick to the face from Machida, still has Randal dazed and confused.

Randy always picks the underdog....

It makes him look like a genius the 1/10 times that he's right.

Absolutely. He'd have a pretty crappy pick percentage here on the ground.
