That's wishful thinking to say the least. Chael had one impressive fight in his whole career and it's already been established that was do to Silva having a rib injury and Silvas general susceptibility to strong wrestlers. Jones has wiped the floor with Hammill, Bader and Evans.. I don't see Chael giving him trouble.

While I agree with your assessment of Chael's career, Chael has the best shot out of anyone at beating Jones at LHW. While all of Jones opponents stand in front of him waiting, Chael is known for pressing forward and puting his opponents on their heels. We've seen how Jones reacts when pressed upon in his Machida and Rampage fights.

Although Chael dosent seem to have much confidence in himself, I think he can bring a fight to Jones which no one has really done before.

Not considering his record at LHW.

Jones wants the fight to end up in the clinch because that's where he does a lot of damage along with trips and throws, Sonnen rushing in from a distance on Jones isn't the smartest thing to do.

We also don't know how Cheal will handle Jones speed and strength.

I hope Jones beats him in devastating fashion and Chael never I gets a title shot again.
In my opinion he's always sounded scripted even from the build up to Silva/Sonnen I all the way up until now he hasn't really changed in the corny shit he says and don't get your hopes up with him being finished in devastating fashion he's a good fight and wrestler but when shit looks like it's gonna get ugly he gives up and takes the easy way out.

I like Sonnen, but this fight is a farce and Jones is going to win easily.
Sonne kept Silva down for entire fight and even the finish was cause Sonnen was on top in silvas guard. Bisping is a shorter stockier fighter then jones harder to keep em down imo, not saying jones is easier to get down and keep down then bisping saying his build for a fighter is hard then the lanky skinny guys like jones' build. But yeah i agree jones will win and it will be dominate
