> Hey Scott: It's been a while since you've talked about UFC. Have you given up your MMA fandom or are you dialed back to casual fandom? I would have figured that you might have something to say about the fight tonight: Jon Jones vs Chael Sonnen promises to be an interesting fight, if only to see Jones kick the crap out of Sonnen and hear how he'll try to spin it to keep his career going.
Promotion for this one has been pretty low key by the standards of both guys. I'm not really into this one as a result. Especially considering you've got the shit-talking triumvirate of Bisping, Sonnen, and Roy Nelson out there. I think Chael can still talk his way into one last big fight win or lose.
Chael's gimmick will be to get a title fight in every weight division. Then he'll get a sex change and challenge Rousey.ReplyDelete
And I'd pay to see it. Point to Chael.ReplyDelete
Predictions for top 3 fights:ReplyDelete
Jones by 1st round TKO
Bisping by decision
Nelson by 1st round TKO
Jones will get lazy and cocky and carry him to a decision.ReplyDelete
Chael's shtick has worn thin with me. I was his biggest fan going into the first Anderson SIlva fight. He talked a bunch of shit, said funny stuff, and I was intrigued to see if he'd back it up and he did back up a lot of it. Hell even my friends call me Chael Sonnen Jr. because they think I look like him.ReplyDelete
Ever since he got dominated by Anderson though, I just feel like all he has is his shtick. It's one thing to build yourself up but another to have been clearly defeated twice by Anderson Silva, and then somehow say "When you are the best fighter in the world they call you Chael Sonnen" It just comes off as really really fake.
I think Jones can end the fight anytime he wants. I hope he doesn't ride out a decision. I hope he puts him away in 2.ReplyDelete
Even if Sonnen loses he will act like he didn't lose, so he wins either way.ReplyDelete
Dude, if that happens, give me your address and I will mail you $10. This fight is getting finished.ReplyDelete
If it does, it will happen in the first minute. Other wise Chael will grind it out while Jones uses the fight to show off. Like Anderson does from time to time.ReplyDelete
And against Jones he was once again talk talk talk.ReplyDelete
Not too shabby.ReplyDelete
Thanks...they don't usually turn out that accurate!ReplyDelete
