Well shit can I suit up and challenge Jon Jones too?
Guys, we've all read enough Jones interviews to know that Jones doesn't really know what the hell he's thinking or talking about.....EVER!
The guy is a flip flopper. That should be his nickname really
So they are big friends now.
What they really need to do is to hug and give Hi5 during the fight ala Crocop-Barry.
What I find really incredible, is that UFC found the most stupid and pathetic excuse ever for this freakshow ("ooh la la laaa, Chael Sonnen asked for this fight, so because of that he deserves it") and people actually think that it is a legit reason!!
Even fucking Zulu deserved to fight Fedor more than Chael deserves to fight Jones.
And after this fight, Chael is going to talk some shit to Cain Velasquez. And Zuffa are going to make Sonnen vs Cain for the title. They will find some absolute idiocracy as an excuse and people will believe it. Chael walks around 240 right? Oh great so he would not have to cut weight anyway. And dumbasses are going to say "Oooh, Chael may come bigger than Cain, he has a chance!!"
I think this is actually bad for Sonnen. He's talked about how his persona can psych him up a bit, get him mentally ready for the fight. Intentionally or not, Jones may be deflating that and we may see a more timid Sonnen than we did in the Silva fights.

Real fighters fight. No questions asked, no training camp, fly out that night if they have to. Chael was the ONLY one to step up and take the fight with Jones (vitor and I believe even an injured Chris Weidman followed suit after the cancellation of the PPV) and weather you want to believe that or not is on you.
Refusing to take a fight is just as bad as taking that said fight and losing. When Dana and the UFC call you and offer you a title shot you don’t say "Oh but this isn’t enough time to get ready..." You say "Yes sir, thank-you sir” and get on with your training, however long that is.
Does this include Jones turning down the first Sonnen fight as well? Remember, it wasnt just challengers ducking fights in that situation..
Chael Sonnen. Given a title shot based on shit talk ability... Makes friends with the champ. Double Fail!
next will be the intercontenital title.. Isn't that what the WWF called it.

Whatever happened to earning a title shot?
More likely Big Country, Rothwell doesn't talk enough smack.
And earning a title shot is no longer at this address, it moved to Bellator.
