Bones Jones vs Chael Sonnen?
Bones Jones easy. Bones has wrestling too, and is the guy that choked out Rampage for God's sake. Chael doesn't do good with the submissions. Lol Bones will be bigger than Chael, and Chael's wrestling won't be as dominant, we have to remember that's not the spider's strong suit. Bones wins in 3. Chael, who knows who he'll call out next.

Bones in ONE.
Chael is going to spend 3 MONTHS talking smack to Bones, who knows that Chael doesn't have the power to hurt him, or the reach to scare him away.
Bones has a MONSTER reach, and is going to be coming into the cage a good 20 pounds heavier than Sonnen.
Remind me the last time Sonnen stopped ANYONE? Silva stopped him twice, and I still think Bisping beat him.
Lets also keep in mind Greg Jackson has SIX MONTHS to get a gameplan together.
Sonnen goes down, HARD in under a round.

Nah, Sonnen's tough.
He'll make it to the 2nd round.
Bones will murder him by the end of it, but IT WILL LAST MORE THAN 1 ROUND.

This dude been stopped by almost every top guy he's faced, from Jeremy Horn to Anderson Silva!
The Spider squished him in under a round, and Jones is bigger, stronger and almost as fast, PLUS can maul Sonnen against the cage. Jones has the wrestling to not have to respect Sonnens doubles, and has MONTHS to find some hole in Sonnens top game
You know, like getting triangled in seconds.

Sonnen, if he wasn't prone to being submitted, by those guys you mentioned, woulda beat spider the first go 'round. For a guy to win 4 outta 5 rounds with the undefeated Anderson silva, is tough. That's in my book of books of course.
Also, didn't spider beat Chael in 2, in the last one? Could be mistaken.
Either way, Bones Jones, as great as he is, won't beat him in 1. Chael's a gamer, and proved he ain't all talk.
I stated that Bones would win in 3. You said in 1. I just can't buy that, sorry. Chael learned a lesson in his last fight, "don't get too anxious". It was Sonnen who made the big mistake vs slider in their 2nd fight. Of course the "mj of mma" capitalized.

You still have not given me a reason that Sonnen can last 15 minutes with Jones. Look at how mean and vicous Bones has and can be. Sonnen gives Bones one thing that he hasn't since he was crushing guys on Versus
An opponent that offers almost Zero chance of stopping him.
Is Sonnen going to threaten him standing?
Is Sonnen's clinch game going to bust him up in the ribs?
No, even if he can get a grip on him, Bones's size and long limbs is going to make it almost impossible to hold him against the cage.
Is Sonnen going to ground and pound him out?
No. SoNnen set Records in strikes vs the Sppider, and never came CLOSE to stopping the fight.
Bones is going to be able to do and try anything he wants to Sonnen. I don't think he has the will to clown like Silva does. He's going to want to beat Sonnen so bad that he wants to go fight Jacre in Strikeforce.
