Chael is going to eat Dhalsim punches and kicks until he gets tossed on his backside and hellbowed into unconsciousness.
I like Dhalsim metaphor.

Dana thought it would save TUF is my guess.

GPTitle: I said: "If you were given 15 fighters, how many unique ranking lists could you create with their names?"
The answer - 1307674368000
A little more than your "15!" LOL, idiot.

We've never seen JBJ on his back.

Chael won't stand still like an idiot (Evans), and he will actually attack JBJ (unlike Rampage, Machida for the most part).

Chael will be JBJs toughest test. Mark it down.

not a chance

Chael is in there for a world of hurt, but the fight was not booked for competitive reasons to begin with. They want to squeeze the drawing power of Sonnen while they can, and also give a boost to TUF. Jones will smash Chael and move on to more credible challenges.

We all know Chael got the shot because he's a promotion machine, and TUF was on life support. But as to your first point, people can say Diaz has better striking, but make no mistake, GSP will outstrike him.

hmmm.... i would say diaz is better at ju-jitsu then gsp. gsp used to ko everyone and has really underated standup skills. Diaz's striking is only good if you fall for it condit showed us that. i'm more intrested in seeing GSP and Diaz on the ground then striking.

As Bones vs. Cheal. Cheal dosen't have knock out power or submissions. I wouldn't be suprised to see Bones out werestling him. he's stronger, faster and really hard to take down. i hope JBJ vs. Chael is a good fight but i see it Cheal trying to survive and not get finished the whole fight

If you actually watch the Rashad Jones fight Jones begins to gas around the end of round 2. It's not super obvious because Rashad was gassed himself but he is breathing through his mouth.

If Sonnen can get Jones down, basically having to fight in a position in a real fight he never has, he may gas hard.
