Other people had a chance of fighting jones but for some reason or another it worked out that Chael was in the right place at the right time and is fighting for the lhw title.


    Is he deserving maybe not but the man has worked for years to be at the top of the heap in mma and now he is reaping the benefits of those years of hard work IMO.
    I am sorry but there are other guys that I am pretty sure that have worked even harder than Sonnen, and that deserve that title match much more than Chael.

    Let's be real, the reason he got this particular title shot is because of his mouth, not because he worked so hard for many years.
    He worked so hard for many years and that is why he is a Top 5 fighter in the MW division.
    But he got the shot for the LHW title only because he hypes fights and that means more money for the UFC.

    All the "Chael got this shot because everyone else said "NO" is just a bullshit excuse made by the UFC.
    He is a good wrestler and a good entertainer and a very good Troll. But him getting a title shot at Jones is just a joke.

    But nevermind, next week it will be all over and hopefully next time the contender will be someone that fought his way to the title shot, not just tweeted it.

    I get what you are saying and I pretty much agree that he worked his way to the top of the heap at 185 and used his mouth well to get him the spotlight. Props to him for that. And props to him for being willing to take a savage beating on short notice to save a card.

    But that doesn't make him the top contender at 205 and therefore shouldn't earn him a title shot.

    People can understand why Sonnen is getting a title shot and agree or disagree with it. I thoroughly disagree with it and think its a huge black eye for the sport, but that's my opinion.

    But anyone who actually thinks Sonnen has earned a title fight at 205 is a delusional nutthugger.

    But it is very good his aproach on this situation. At least he is smart enough to realize that beating a fan would be catastrophic for his career. At least he is mature in this sense.

    Sonnen went over only to get swung on by the man, who "got bundled and dragged up every stair" of the arena while cursing the light-heavyweight contender, White said.
    I guess they throw around the term "light-heavyweight contender" pretty loosely nowadays.

    That being said, what a stupid fan.

    That's when you know you are playing the perfect Heel. Good job Chael.
