Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen Had a Pretty Sweet Thanksgiving Together, Thanks for Asking [PHOTO]

We shared this on our Facebook page on Thursday, but it’s worth a re-post for those of you who weren’t glued to your computers and mobile devices during the holiday. The photo above shows Chael Sonnen predictably going for a leg while Jon Jones — a menacing figure even without a sharp object — puts on his best bad-guy face and straight up dwarfs the gangster from West Linn. We’d like to congratulate the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board for their bravery in sanctioning this one.

In the pro wrestling world, this sort of thing is called “breaking kayfabe,” a moment where the fictional storylines and personas are temporarily discarded, revealing that the whole thing is fake. Yeah, I know Jones has been warming up to Sonnen, who is “pretty decent and pretty classy” all of a sudden. But damn, it sure didn’t take long to go from calling each other cowards, cheaters, mental midgets, and selfish, entitled brats, to “bro, are you bringing the cranberries or do I have to run out to Whole Foods again?”

So how do these two really feel about each other — and how much of their interaction on the next season of TUF will be staged for our amusement?

It's a smart marketing move. They have to help TUF out its been so horrible. Bring heavyweights back or something. Who doesn't like to see big muscle heads & fat/swole dudes throwing haymakers at each other. Just watch South Park when they get tired. Chael should fake an injury & Hendo should step in because we all know Jon Jones will beat Chael. (And I've been a Chael Fan) just because he's an asshole like the rest of us with a brain & big balls unlike the rest of the pussies that won't STEP UP for a fight. Dude! Your a fighter! Fuck your Record! Wille Pep was 229-11-1 bc he fought anybody & every God every made at his weigh class.

I wouldnt even be surprised if this Sonnen-Jones thing was worked out with the UFC brass and Sonnen and Jones behind closed doors. They will produce great ratings for TUF, and when it comes time to dance, Sonnen will back out with a fake injury within just enough time to get a replacement. And then Jones will fight that guy instead just like he and everybody knew all along, and they will all get a nice check. This is a publicity stunt.

How in the blue hell does Sonnen think he gonna beat Jones loll. Stupid fight is stupid. Sonnen is a fucking middleweight and Jones ragdolls his fellow LHW's like nothing. I still don't know what Joe Silva was thinking on this. But I will watch it. It will likely end as expected though smh

He's going to lull Jones into a Tryptophan coma and then arrange his comatose body in the front seat of a pre-smashed Bentley.

All of Chael's antics are staged for *his* amusement, not ours. This is Chael's world and we're just visiting.
