    You know what, doesnt Greg Jackson look like screch from saved by the bell minus the fro? on a total unrelated note, I think I might finally watch TUF again just for the Sonnen factor. I saw the fight goes two rounds come fight night.

    Firstly, if you don't watch the fights on TUF I really don't believe you can honestly call yourself an MMA fan.

    Secondly, yes Sonnen will make this the fight. He will be the first guy Jones has fought who will actively try to take him down the whole fight.

    I hope Greg can solve the Sonnen puzzle.

    does Greg use a mirror when he's styling his beard?

    There were quite a few people who thought Vitor was either going to KO Jones in some Matt Serra-type situation or get mauled, I don't think anyone expected Vitor to almost sub Jones with an armbar off his back. I'll say this, Chael talks a lot of shit, too much shit that doesn't need to happen to sell himself but he does. The thing is, he wins, he doesn't cower, and while I put him on top 10 douchebags of MMA list, I respect what he can do and has done.

    The Gangster will win vs. Jonny Bones. Just look at Uncle Chael's wrestling accomplishments. Jonny Bones has nothing for Master Chael.

    Yes, and if you aren't interested in the upcoming Phish concert at MSG, I honestly don't believe you can call yourself a music fan.

    :rolleyes:

    You must like every band, song, and genre to be a fan of music. And every movie to like movies. Shit logic is shit.

    I'm sure he watches every KOTC too, and everyone who doesn't isn't a real MMA fan.


    lol, you watch a reality show where they hire fighters based on charisma. If you watch that garbage I actually think of people as less of fans.

    I don't see it. Jones has walked through far better fighters on multiple occasions. I like the effort to sell the fight though.

    Unfortunately for Chael he doesn't have a style that could win him the fight at any given moment. To win he has to physically dominate his opponent for 25 minutes, and I don't see any MW or LHW ever doing that to Jones.

    but i dont seee how chael wins this - if he gets top control for five rounds then that would be really surprising considering jones never has gotten taken down

    and a stand up ko would be really surprising considering the strikers jones has handled

    vitor was at least a bjj blackbelt with finishing power - even then, no one liked it - this one just makes no sense man

    If TUF moved away from the drama format I'd watch it again. I just had to quit watching around the time of "the mole" Jon Dodson. I hate the added drama & shit, I'd just like to see the training & fights, but I know that wouldn't translate so well for the casual fan and is thus unlikely to happen ever.

    If I catch TUF, it's on DVR and I can skip to the fight at the end. Everything in the middle is lol. Made that mistake watching Brock's season...fucking Lesnar. I won't ever be able to order a chicken salad again.

    Hope West Linn puts up a good fight. Winning is a pipe dream, but Chael didn't take the fight because he thought he could win, he took it because he'll fight anyone as long as the check clears. That's not an insult.

    also, saying the fight will be tougher than most think isnt saying much

    people are giving chael zero chance

    trainers are there to keep their fighters sharp and make sure they dont slack off

    Saying "This fight will be a sparring match" would not exactly generate PPV sales and put money in his pocket,
