    After Jones beats Chael, I want to see Chael Vs Rashad. 2 big personalities with the best wrestling at 205 and great hands. Who takes it, I can't decide.

    to liken their striking by saying both have 'great hands' is a giant understatement to rashads boxing.

    also, we havent see chaels wrestling at 205 yet. I do believe, he will do well though

    Sonnen has a lot of interesting matchups looming at 205. He can wrestlefuck a win out of almost anyone in top ten and he is so much bigger and presumably stronger at.LHW. That said Jones should run through him wherever the fight goes.

    I also think chael should face Rashad. Would be good.

    How about we wait and see IF Jones fights Chael & IF Jones can beat him.
    We all know the odds are definitely on Jones but it is MMA, and anything can happen.

    I wouldnt say Sonnen has great hands. But he's decent for sure.

    Sonnen vs any top wrestler at 205 would be a fun fight.

    I think Rashads hands are slightly over rated, chaels slightly under, probably even more so now after the spinning back fall. Still give an advantage to Rashad of course in the striking, but I give the grappling advantage to Chael mainly because he wants the fight there Rashad has fallen in love with his hands.

    If he loses, I could see that. Depending on how the fight goes.

    I think so too. There's no where else for him to go. Dana did the right thing by making him coach TUF. They need to squeeze as much money out of Chael before he retires

    Chael will beat jones via 3rd round knock-out. and second of all chael and rashad are friends, wouldnt make for very good hype.

    You mean Gus or Machida? Can't imagine he wouldn't face the number one contender.

    I agree chael's stand up is underrated but at best its very good transitional boxing.

    We know rashad hits hard.

    and fell in love with his hands?
