    I think we might actually start seeing fighters get title shots when they deserve them. Sonnen doesn't seem to be the kind of guy that would pick and choose as much as other champs have. He seems like he's more of a "who's next?" kind of fighter. But the status could change him.

    With that being said, I think the business plan is what it is and no specific fighter winning will change the landscape of that plan.

    Jon Jones' hype train would come crashing down, and I think most of the top LHW's could beat Sonnen so the belt would start jumping around again. If Jones can learn from it like GSP learned from his losses, he would come back stronger and have an even tighter hold on the belt. Still, it would take him years to regain what that one loss would cost him.

    Nothing will happen, except that UFC will make even more freakshow fights in the future. And Joe Rogan will be saying that Chael Sonnen is a real life Rocky, since Rogan and many others want so much to find a real Rocky. And they will never find it, even if Sonnen beats Jones, there will be no comparison with Rocky at all.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    What will happen? Mass fanboy suicides; figuratively speaking, of course.
