Jones Injury Should Keep Him Out 6-8 Weeks

The doctor on UFC tonight explained Jon’s gruesome injury and informed us that he would need about 6-8 weeks to recover.  Nice to hear this but I still hope they make a number one contender fight between Lyoto Machida and Alexander Gustafsson.

MMA Fighter Glues His Eye Shut During Fight

After seeing UFC 159 this past weekend and seeing Jon Jones break his toe , you probably thought you’ve seen everything and then something like this happens. “At WOCS 25 in Brazil, a fighter was in his corner between rounds getting worked while a member of the production crew of WOCS was reapplying glue to a decal on the fighter’s banner. Some of the glue dripped down from...

‘UFC 159: Backstage Pass – Jon Jones vs Chael Sonnen’ (Video)

How does the baddest light heavyweight alive get ready to tie Tito Ortiz for the most successful 205-pound title defenses in UFC history? By singing Rihanna’s “Stay” – a slow tempo love song, of course. Jon Jones (pictured) was relaxed and full of confidence entering Saturday’s scrap with Chael Sonnen. After witnessing his destruction of Chael P., now we know why he was...

Jon Jones says Anderson Silva is still the greatest ever, letting the argument rest for a while.

Until they fight, which in my opinion, may never happen, the argument over the next few years will be Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva. Over the last few years, I was convinced Anderson would have his way with Jones, but after watching Jones fill into a heavyweight frame and throw around Vitor and Chael around like kids, maybe Anderson wouldn’t fare so well against the 25-year-old...

The Two Sheds Review: UFC 159 Jones vs Sonnen

It was the battle of the Ultimate Fighter coaches as the Ultimate Fighting Championship presented UFC 159, shown live in the early hours of this past Sunday morning on ESPN here in Britain.The show began with the prelims and the bantamweight encounter between Bryan Caraway and Johny Bedford.This was a pretty good fight. Caraway, who took the fight on six day’s notice, found a ...

Chael Sonnen: The Man, The Myth, The Legend

At UFC 159, Chael Sonnen was unsuccessful in his third attempt at UFC gold. However, unlike his two exciting performances against the greatest fighter in the world in Anderson Silva, Sonnen's fight against Jon Jones was the most lopsided loss of the West Linn native's career. Jones, the highly-regarded 24 year-old Light Heavyweight champ, used his superior size and grappling...

The Bones Jones Sandwich Is Definitely Not On The Dolce Diet

This thing looks like a gut bomb that I would want to avoid.  Not even sure what this has to do with Jon Jones.  The guy making this sh*t should probably stay far, far away from eating such items.  Thanks to MiddleEasy for the heads up. Jones Injury Should Keep Him Out 6-8 Weeks Jon Jones And Chad Ochocinco Have A Twitter Feud

Dana White: Jon Jones’ UFC Title Run Better Than Tito Oritz’s

After thrashing Chael Sonnen this past Saturday at UFC 159, reigning light heavyweight king Jon Jones tied Tito Ortiz (pictured) for the most successful 205-pound title defenses in Octagon history. While Jones is still one win away from solidifying his spot as the promotion’s most decorated champion in the division, UFC president Dana White believes Jones has already surpassed...

Chael Sonnen is not done with fighting: “I have a lot of goals, I’m not going to reach them if I retire.”

  I don’t think anyone really thought Chael was going to retire after his loss to Bones Jones, his body just doesn’t contain the type of DNA required to go out on a loss like that. But, the clock is still ticking on his 36-year-old body, and with the UFC upping it’s stance against TRT (I’m sure if an exemption is made for anyone, it’s Chael) perhaps Chael only has a few...

Chael Sonnen Is Not Retiring

“I’ll fight at 205. I’m not retiring. I’m 36 years old. I have a lot of goals and I’m not going to reach them if I retire. I don’t have a lot of options at 185. I’ve fought everyone in the top 10, including the champion a couple of times. So I moved up to [...]

Video Of Wanderlei Silva Talking To Chael Sonnen In 2010

This is the video Chael was talking about in his UFC Tonight interview that Wanderlei put out.  It definitely helps having subtitles and I’m not sure how much of what Wandy was saying Chael could understand.  Bottom line this fight needs to happen and I am glad we will get to see more of Chael Sonnen in the Octagon and more of his trash talk outside of if.  Shout out to Intravid...

Anderson Silva ‘Like Water’ documentary review

It is a rare occasion when you get an inside look at Anderson Silva. Like Water shows a fascinating backstory behind one of the greatest fights and fighters in UFC history yet still left plenty of unanswered questions about who Anderson Silva really is.

Three Brazilian Stars Share A Laugh

Three future hall of famers are seen here sharing a laugh.  Perhaps Wanderlei is telling them how he “punked” Sonnen that one time in the van back in 2010. Video of Wanderlei Silva talking to Chael Sonnen back in 2010 Chael Sonnen UFC Tonight interview
