Chael Sonnen is Training to Fight Jon Jones Next Week!


What has 2 thumbs and can muffle a fart on the first date?

By Nathan Smith

Dan Henderson’s knee injury and the refusal by Jon Jones to fight his chosen replacement, Chael P. Sonnen, on eight days notice forced the first UFC event cancelation in history.  The infamous Dana White conference call to announce the goings-on took the MMA world by storm. DW chastised and spewed vitriol towards JBJ’s unwillingness to step up to fight Sonnen which infuriated the UFC brass as a whole. Likewise, it enraged the Bones nuthuggers and haters who in turn inundated the CP comment section for more than a week with well-reasoned arguments but mostly sophomoric jabs involving nipples.

Now Lyoto Machida Vitor Belfort has been named JBJ’s next opponent, but that is not stopping Sonnen from getting ready to fight the man that turned down his challenge. The American Gangster expects to walk to the octagon and go mano y mano with Bones next weekend.

Dana White told mmajunkie.com:
Chael Sonnen is in full training camp right now. He’s been training since he got offered the Jones fight. He said, ‘I’m in full camp right now because Vitor will get hurt and pull out, and it will be Jones vs. Sonnen, anyway.’”

Un-FREAKING-believable!

Even though the UFC 152 card has been recast and finalized, Sonnen is still making a bunch of noise anticipating a fight with the champ. Could it all be a bouquet of unsubstantiated bullshit being made by a guy that loves to get inside his opponents head almost as much as he loves the spotlight? Absolutely, but does anybody actually doubt the fact that Sonnen IS training to fight next weekend? With Belfort’s recent health woes and an injury curse looming over the UFC it wouldn’t surprise this writer if Vitor comes up lame.

Dana White can hold a grudge the same way any dude can muffle a fart on the first date with his new chick and it is NEVER successful. No matter how much you think your cheeks are pressed tightly against the Olive Garden booth or how loud the bar noise is, she always hears it. DW was born with Irish stubbornness and there is nothing you can do about it (sorry BG, old Dad, new Dad, JJ, Rex, Seth, EC, Jeff, the rest of the “contributors” like me and the CP Nation) because unlike the forgiving first date, he will never forget what happened in the past. DW is worse than an elephant and I have superficial proof that will never hold up in the court of law.

DW went so far as to tell mmafighting.com:

“Ok, we were gonna fight Dan Henderson, guy’s got (expletive) knockout power, great wrestling, a good chin, tough (expletive) guy. Now here’s Chael Sonnen on eight days notice and he’s a (expletive) 185 pounder, coming in with no camp whatsoever. And you heard what they said: he’s a southpaw. Vitor Belfort’s a (expletive) southpaw. And hits (expletive) harder, and is faster and more explosive. So you’re gonna (expletive) say no to him on eight days notice but fight (Vitor). It’s so stupid that it gets me angry.”

In this writer’s opinion, there needs to be around the clock surveillance on The Phenom to insure his safety because there could be a couple of culprits hoping for his downfall. DW could play Wile E. Coyote to Belfort’s Roadrunner. If you see DW with ANYTHING labeled ACME and if you see a bellhop wearing a Blue Jays hat dropping banana peels all over the place while screaming “IT WAS A KNEE TO THE HEAD ON A DOWNED OPPONENT. . . . . . .  DAMN YOU ANDY,” call authorities (or use the “Ring Signal” and Nick will be right there to defend all of Canada). Please!

I have to ask the Potato Nation. Is this just Chael being Chael searching for attention or do you think Sonnen is being proactive in his approach to next weekend ‘s main event in hopes for a Belfort banana slip and/or future endeavors with Jon Jones?

oh man this is pretty sad. so delusional, reminds me of the bones haters in this comment section, just completely ignoring reality in pursuit of delusion. this is really farther than i thought it would go, pretty embarrassing, no dignity left at all, damn man...

This is a smart move by Chael. I'm guessing there's about 75-80% chance that Vitor will be injured so it's better that he's prepared to win back his LHW title that he lost in a contract dispute 5 years ago after an incredible 45-0 run as the champion, and was 76-0 overall including his ventures at heavyweight, middleweight and bantamweight which totally existed at the time and he made the weight for easily.

Smart man.

Don't feed the troll CP. Who am I kidding you guys love that shit. As for DW's comment, Bones has time to train for Belfort. I'm pretty sure that's a HUGE factor for Bones. Seems pretty damn obvious.

I think Sonnen is awsome! He talks a lot of crap but it is very entertaining.

Sonnen cracks me up. He may be rediculous but anyone who is willing to step in the octagon on short notice to fight the champion in a weightclass he JUST moved into has my respect. Jones refusing doesn't surprise me but on the other hand shouldn't the champ take on any challenger?

I have to admit Sonnen is a fantastic promoter of fights. He is kind of a guilty pleasure. Even though he makes himself almost unlikable I like him more than Jones.

Looking at some of the upcoming fight cards I have to say that Sonnen is more relevant than ever. I personally would love to see him back up some of that talk he does so well.

what do you mean Irish resentment? Irish people are stubborn & determined but certainly not resentful , bad choice of words pal may be seen as offensive ,which im sure was not your intention

Substitute every (expletive) for the correct swear word and **WIN** BIG.
First prize is a big (expletive) bag of fat (expletive) (expletive). Good luck.
