    Chael took down every single opponent he has ever faced in the UFC. Jones has a 100% TDD rate. The unstoppable force vs The immovable object.

    doubt it

    chaels got to get inside first to get a hold, his hook clinch wont work and i don't think his double can cover the distance.

    Jones has being pretty immune to doubles. Some may call me crazy, but I still think that Jones might show off pulling guard.

    He didnt take Maia down. Is that another worthless stat provided by the UFC like the Bisping one (he hasnt taken done around 7 of his opponents).

    I don't think he'll take Jones down. Jones will take Sonnen down though.

    Doubtful. Jones is too fast and strong and balanced. He probably tosses Chael around lol.

    Hard to take someone down from your back.

    I thought he did take Maia down early in the fight...

    You crazy. He isnt cocky enough to allow sonnen into the only position he possibly could work in. He might right at te end of a round to make it look like a sub attempt to gain points thought which he's done before. So maybe you ain't that crazy after all

    Pretty sure Demian Maia dumped him on his head and choked him out without getting taken down.

    Chael will be the first man to take him down

    Cormier will be the first man to keep him down

    I think he has a chance to be able, Chael is a very good wrestler obviously and his pressure will be the factor on whether or not he can get inside the reach.

    No. Maia was the one going for takedowns.

    I do distinctly remember Maia on his back at one point in that fight. I just don't remember how he ended up there. And it was prior to the throw he landed on Chael.

    No.. He'll push Jones on the cage and try for the first 5 min and get nowhere. By round 2 Jones will have his timing down and light him up on the feet..
