sonnench: @jonnybones Oh I plan too. Btw, how long did it take your parents to come up with your name, JON JONES.. #creative

that was literally the dumbest shit he has ever said. Did he run out of material or something. If they want Sonnen to get a title shot at 205 it's gonna take more than beating shitty Forrest; guy should just retire.

Nobody ever said Sonnen would get a title shot for beating Forrest. He's a middleweight moving up to light heavyweight, Forrest is a stepping stone. The UFC knows they can market Sonnen to a solid buyrate, and can give him a title shot whenever they damn well please. It would be silly matchmaking from a business perspective to throw Sonnen in against a top-5 LHW right away and risk losing out on some high-profile fights.

Yeah, I think that setting Sonnen against Forrest is the best move. They need marketable challengers at 205 and Sonnen is a big name. Forrest is a big name as well and has a previous victory over Chael, so it's the perfect way to begin to promote Chael in the division. I would certainly assume he would need a second win before his title shot. Hopefully we can see him be schooled by Lyoto, but I would bet instead on a better match up for him such as Shogun.

If Sonnen gets past Forrest, which I expect he will, the winner of Shogun/Gustafsson or Teixera if he gets past Rampage would be good match ups.

Sonnen-Teixera would be excellent.

Agreed. You either have a proven marketable challenger for Jones in Sonnen, or a challenger who just put away Rampage and Sonnen.

I just love how I went from not liking/understanding Sonne, to having become one of my favorites within months.

lol I love Sonnen.

sonnench: The toughest fight you've had at 205 was the chump who snatched the old ladies purse while you were playing on the swings at the park.

God damn I hope that UFC Fox card is in Seattle although I doubt it.

Dana said a few weeks ago that they'd be back to Seattle before the end of the year and if I'm not mistaken, thats the only card without a venue, no? Although I've heard something about a Fight Night the week after which is probably what we'll get.

Just announced it's in Seattle mothafucka yehahahahahah~!!!!!

Freakin out a bit here haha

I saw the announcement on UFC Tonight and flipped my shit.

haha yeah I just finished crapping my pants. I can't wait to see what other fights are going to be on the card. You KNOW the entire card will be stacked because it's a really important Fox card, and they obviously are really interested in seeing huge numbers on this. This could've been a big PPV, but they're putting it all out there to get some serious ratings on Fox.

In other news - Frankie Edgar officially moving down to 145.

Dana said if GSP gets past Condit it's probably time for Silva.
