    Great article…

    Jones in one round.

    Sonnen does not deserve this chance, he lost to a champion already you don’t just fight the next champion in another weight class when you loose. Com on Dana, you should’ve been taught that in fight 101

      Edgar?

      • Madmmax

        He’s moving down in weight. Easier to sell

    • Cereal Killer

      Then who was Jones going to fight?? I don’t see any challengers.

      the reason sonnen is getting this shot is cause when no one wanted to fight jones he said yes on less then 2 weeks notice.
