In recent years, Chael Sonnen has proven himself as a master of self-promotion. So why is it that in advance of his UFC 159 clash with Jon Jones, he seems more interesting in hyping his opponent than himself?

Randy Couture today could more than likely beat Ali and Tyson, let alone Jones. First round finish via TD and gnp or some type of submission

1) Tyson and Ali would demolish Jones and Randy in a boxing match, but wouldn't last a round in MMA.

2) I think Jones is better than Randy in his prime.

3) Chael Sonnen's smart to hype Jones. If he loses, he lost to the best; if he wins, he beat the best. Trash-talking Silva would've taken away from the victory (had he won)

in boxing ali or tyson finish anyone in MMA in the 1st rd unless they decide to toy with them...

in MMA ali or tyson probably get subbed or TKO in the 1st
