    I have a serious question? Does anyone actually Believe Chael can beat Jones. I believe this is one of the dumbest match ups ever. I want to see Jones vs Machida II. Machida was gettin Jones that first round and now knows more about how to handle Jones. Chael will get smashed.

    I think Chael has a chance.

    A small one, but a chance.

    If he can manage to work Jones the way he did Silva in the first fight, he might have a chance.

    But Jones has a strong wrestling background so I don't see that happening.

    Even in the MMA media right now Machida seems unsure if he wants Jones,
    though he has the right to him next...

    On the Chael point. I totally agree with you,
    I expect a dirty TKO from Jones before Round 3 ends AT LEAST.
    THIS match up is crazy but it is because the higher ranked fighters turned Jon down.

    That might actually be a good thing. Id like to see Machida fight Gustafsson.

    He will get smashed but he does have a chance.

    That chance lies in him being able to hold jones down which I doubt he can. Wrestlers don't always work so great on their back, and in the bonnar fight and the fight before that I think, he showed that he has a tendency to slow down with someone on the clinch

    Machida vs Gustaffson would be a nice little fight.
    Interesting to see if the UFC would risk Alexander's streak against Lyoto next,
    but then again he just fought against Shogun.

    Either way after Gegard I think Alexander should be next for the title if he calls Jones out for it...
    Right now Lyoto is seeming mighty pussy about this Title shot.

    Sonnen did well vs Silva the first time because he was on PEDS aaaannnnd Anderson's ribs were injured [ that's what getting thrown by the HW Olympic Judo Gold Medalist will do; remember that Anderson is a black belt in Judo and was sparring..."randori"...with the Japanese HW 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist cuz ole dude was considering joining Black House ]. Everything else you wrote? Cosign.

    Chael DID talk his way into a severe beatdown by Jones, because he makes crazy cash for the UFC when he's promoting fights.
