    Wow really? Are people on hear really giving Jones shit because he doing what he's told? Do you think Dana White would accept another NO from Jon Jones? I mean come on, I think he has no real choice. I could easily see Dana striping him of the title if he turned this down. It is what it is, Jones will look lame on the show compared to Sonnen, I'm kind of interested to see if he can out couch Sonnen, who I think would be an excellent coach. But let's not kid ourselves, Sonnen will get retired when he fights Jones. Damn shame, because if Sonnen could make 170, he'd be one dangerous bastard for GSP. That's what he REALLY should do if he wants gold....

    Isnt that what he was saying in the first place... Then the mindless fans took it as him ducking Chael and said he shouldnt pick who he fights...

    Now some of those same fans that said he was ducking Sonnen are pissed that this fight was made.

    This is nothing more than a safe fight to get us one step closer to Jones vs Silva

    yes ....chael doesnt deserve it. we all know its a freak show for ratings and money, but we only have dana white to blame for that. not jon jones
    So its Dana White and the UFC's fault dan henderson hurt his knee 3 weeks before a fight, didnt tell the UFC until the week of the fight and had to pull out because of that injury, and then countless fighters at 205 turned down a shot at Jones excpet one Chael Sonnen...I see how thats the UFC's fault

    "but we only have dana white to blame for that. not jon jones" - Joe silva makes fights, so if you really wanna blame someone thats not listed above blame him not Dana White

    funny how you have sh*t to talk about this fight, which the "casual fans" want, but nothing but positive things to say about anderson chasing the smaller man around for a stooper-fight. Hypocrite much?

    Looks like Chael is already going for a single leg...
