Just curious why he would take a fight against Jones if he'd been doing nothing but sitting on the couch drinking beer.........Could it be that Chael was lying!?!
Well I've heard the conspiracy theories. They sound reasonable. It very well could be true. Maybe a couple of sparring sessions to help a training partner prepare isn't really getting in fight Shape. Who knows sonnen has shown questionable integrity as well. They could've known they might get the fight who knows. I wouldn't be surprised at either scenario. Most likely I think chael, being a fighter was sparring some, and once it looked like Hendo was going to be out he started working out. Primed to volunteer as a replacement.
Problem still on my end is that even though I understand why Jon chose not to fight. There were still guys willing to fight to save the card, and guys that weren't. One the guys unwilling was the champion.
