Waaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrr CHAEL!!!!!!!!!

This isn’t hype Says, in 8-23-2012 at 21:41:49 from    

Chael sonnen annoyed me when he was promoting the anderson silva fight but everything that comes out of his mouth is gold because I hate jones’s personality.

The man speaks the truth!
We need a man like CS running this country.

ThatGuy Says, in 8-23-2012 at 21:49:53 from    

I wonder how long it will take for the Sonnen haters to make it here and rave on how much of an asshole Sonnen is over this.

You know Rashad is laughing his ass off right now. Screaming at the computer screen “I TOLD YOU SO!”.

MMAGiantSilva Says, in 8-23-2012 at 21:53:54 from    

Chael is 100% right. F*** Jon Jones little bratty ass

Tkdko Says, in 8-23-2012 at 21:57:49 from    

I googled there salarys and bones makes waaaaaay more $$ than chael.f****** lying republican.bones made 400k last fight and chael made 50k!what a dueche

mu0mu0mu Says, in 8-23-2012 at 21:58:27 from    

I don’t hate chael, but usually don’t agree with him – he is talking true knowledge here though.

MMAGiantSilva Says, in 8-23-2012 at 21:59:54 from    

Well except for the part where he says he makes more money than JJ and is in the top 1% of fighter pay in the UFC that was kinda BS.

RONDOG Says, in 8-23-2012 at 22:01:05 from    

Chael is da man!

stefano Says, in 8-23-2012 at 22:09:42 from    

Its messed up cause shogun put up the title up vs jones on two weeks notice dosent any1 remember that

fsdfsd Says, in 8-23-2012 at 22:11:31 from    

god forgive me, but i agree with Chael this time.

ami Says, in 8-23-2012 at 22:12:48 from    

I don’t necessarily agree with everything Chael said, but I do sympathize with the other fighters on the card. To think that these fighters trained for months for a fight that’s no longer happening is unfortunate.

Jcorb Says, in 8-23-2012 at 22:24:12 from    

Tkdko…..everyone knows JJ makes more $$$ you must be new!
Chael is the ONLY one willing and JJ didnt take it…..EVERYONE loses because JJ is a BRatty Entitled kid!

Robert Says, in 8-23-2012 at 22:28:29 from    


Educate yourself on the many ways fighters get paid and talk less. Operative word is “many”.

AOPrinciple Says, in 8-23-2012 at 22:32:22 from    

You know, I usually get royally sick and tired of Chael’s trash talk pretty quickly, but I agree with him 99% here. Aside from saying that he’s the best thing to ever happen to MMA, he nailed it.

onepunckKO Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:10:41 from    

@Tkdko hey idiot the payroll that the ufc shows are usually less then 30 percent of what the fighter actually makes…top name fighters like chael sonnen make their real money off PPV revenue and” locker room”bonuses (Frank Mir recieved over 1 million dollars in bonuses after his UFC 100 fight with lesnar and the payroll says he only made 45000) the ufc gives him plus sponsors and others…chael sonnens fights with anderson silva sold way more ppv then any of jones fights..im pretty sure that sonnen either makes more or about the same as jones

FailSonnen Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:14:12 from    

I normally hate chael (see username) but he is right here…

Timzda Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:15:31 from    

Yeah I also tend to agree on pretty much everything he said. Cancelling a whole event is pretty brutal for everyone involved, even the fans who had planned to travel, book accommodation etc. to see this event.

jakelo Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:18:05 from    

Chael for the presidency!

jeff_figmb Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:18:50 from    

PLEASE!!! WILL EVERY MMA & FIGHT FAN OUT THERE HATE JONES FROM HERE ON OUT!!! This guy is a huge vagina little bitch! Selfish, entitled f**!!! He just put a s*** load of people out of work and tons of people lost a lot of money. Especially the UFC!! YOU SUCK JON JONES!!!!! Worst move ever…

jhu Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:27:33 from    

Jone will fight shogun on a short notice and will not fight chael at short notice? wow i guess when you become the champ you lose your balls

snidelywhiplash Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:33:18 from    

@Tkdko: Chael makes a percentage of ppv buys which Jones not. This adds up to him making WAY more than JJ

SanClemente Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:40:04 from    

I think Chael is gunning for Dana Whites job. He is really good at promoting fights!

sluggo Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:41:14 from    

Jon is gonna regret this decision till the day he dies .

jona Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:49:04 from    

Just learn how to spinningbackfist chael LOL

Bigeasy Says, in 8-23-2012 at 23:53:01 from    

@Tkdko…Chael made $50k on paper but he made well over a million behind the scenes. Why do you think Chael Sonnen… burst his ass promoting a fight? because he gets a percentage of the PPV. So don’t let his $50K paper salary fool you. He get 20 times that behind the scenes…

Dormath Says, in 8-24-2012 at 00:15:56 from    

Chael as usual is right.

Tkdko there is listed pay days and there is the under the table pay that the UFC does. Plus Chael lost his fight to anderson so the pay day was much less.

iWay Says, in 8-24-2012 at 00:16:18 from    

i wouldn’t mind seeing Sonnen fight and beat Jones, but the reality is that Jon Jones would break Sonnen’s ass like dishes

Martialist Says, in 8-24-2012 at 00:16:58 from    

why does everyone think chael deserved to jump into 205 and get title shot ASAP????
chael was saying anderson silva was running from him for years, was that true? NO!
Last thing I remember chael say is that he’d leave the UFC if silva beats him, still waiting…

Rulo Says, in 8-24-2012 at 00:26:07 from    

F*** Fake Jon “Joke” Jonnes!! not a real champ
he should be fighint in HW anyways.

TheKungFuLowKick Says, in 8-24-2012 at 00:43:58 from    

They cancelled the whole f****** show??

hehe Says, in 8-24-2012 at 01:12:59 from    


he might lie he might not. I’ts not the only income Chael has. They might paid him money to promote the fight. He might has sponsor payments or other income…even so..he offered im his purse. Greg Jackson turns fighter into boring lame ass fighters..just watch what will hapen to JJ later….look what happened to Guida in his last fights…blahhh. JJ will becaome a boring tactician soon and will not stay a fighter. Chaels right…JJ and jackson f***** his boss and the company in the ass…they shouldnt do it…if JJ will loose sooner or later Dana will not be very gracful with him…

Chael Fkn Sonnen Says, in 8-24-2012 at 01:21:03 from    

@Tkdko You are an ignorant prick who doesnt know anything. do u honestly think that chael only made 50k from his last fight with silva…you are a moron. The ppv buys were over 1m, he gets a cut from that and so does silva. Chael easily got over 1m for that fight plus endorsements. Dont believe what you read, because like dana said, they dont release how much the fighters main events make,unless the fighters publicly say so, so if Chael said he made more money then he made and makes more money than he does.

ToOcH911 Says, in 8-24-2012 at 01:35:03 from    

@ tkdko thats not with the percentage of the ppv buys and with sonnen silva 2 bein the highest ppv draw i bet sonnens cut was way more than jones brings in on his ppv

Uhhhhh Says, in 8-24-2012 at 01:48:13 from    

That’s weird, they spell it canceled instead of cancelled. They also spell canceling instead of cancelling. But everyone spells cancellation the same. It really ought to be two L’s for all 3 words not just 1. Damn you Engrish!

sawbuck Says, in 8-24-2012 at 02:00:18 from    

i like chael. he comes to fight, is colorful, great for quotes and backs it up. can’t believe jones won’t fight this guy. he’s been in camp, sonnen hasn’t. you’re a fighter, you fight. how many boxers take fights on a few days notice? jones is actually going to let a promotion go down in smoke? what a wuss. screw him.

ruddo293 Says, in 8-24-2012 at 02:11:52 from    

I dislike chael in many ways, but i cannot disagree with him on this, i believe jones screwed up big time. This guy is a fake champion

ruddo293 Says, in 8-24-2012 at 02:14:45 from    

ok i get why jones turned down the fight, he was preparing for a easy fight with henderson and when chael stepped up, he wasn’t prepared to fight a real fight. I get it know, and he explained his point well. “I’m just not ready for chael sonnen” ok jon we respect your decision…lol

blah Says, in 8-24-2012 at 02:29:53 from    


It’s been stated many times that the fighters also earn part of the ppvs if they’re the main event. So far chael stands @ #1 with a $50+ mill ppv on UFC 148. So he’s telling the truth. if he was left with 10% of ppv buys, that’s still a $5 mill check he took home.

kaobeto Says, in 8-24-2012 at 02:45:37 from    

JJ should have a drink and go for a ride…again.

Halzo Says, in 8-24-2012 at 02:56:06 from    

@tkdko….. Let me help you out with something that only true fans know…. those “disclosed salaries” are just one way the fighters get paid… pay-per-view percentages is not privlaged information…. I can promise you that Chael, when he fought anderson last time, earned almost the most money for that one fight in the ufc’s history…And this was because of how hard he promoted that fight.

julian moran Says, in 8-24-2012 at 03:17:24 from    

I am not a Sonnen fan as he has shown to be classless, manipulative, false, and very disrespectful.
But somehow I am willing to put it under the rug if he keeps bashing on Jones.

fighter27 Says, in 8-24-2012 at 03:50:08 from    

haha, now jones will fight belfort at ufc 152, because machida doesn´t want to fight. this becomes more and more a joke.

roccocas Says, in 8-24-2012 at 05:03:39 from    

Sorry guys, but Chael is full of crap and without a belt, as always. Jones is a champion and I think Dana and the UFC are responsible for throwing opponents at people last second and expecting them to put THEIR WHOLE CAREERS ON THE LINE WITHOUT ANY TIME FOR TRAINING!

halo666 Says, in 8-24-2012 at 05:07:58 from    

Hey Bruno,

I got a very good video clip of Dana going crazy on Jon Jones and Greg Jackson. Only 10 mins

Bruno: That is all in the post below.

baller Says, in 8-24-2012 at 05:12:37 from    

i dont like chael but he talks the truth n i give him nothing but mad respect for dis.

F*ck John Jones

tobes Says, in 8-24-2012 at 05:57:06 from    

Tkdko – Chael might have a unique deal worked out with the PPV because he does a lot for promotion and dissemination of UFC. So he is potentially the highest paid. We don’t know. The PPV sharing is not publicly dispersed. Chael has been known in the past to deliberately state mistruths (eg. I am undefeated at 185). He knows that fools like you and I will chomp at the bit for him to be called on these lies. Fox viewers love Chael. And people like myself disagree with a lot of what he represents (his personal attacks on Anderson, , but like his fighting style, his integrity, grit and forthrightness. He is entertaining as a person and a fighter. Chael is a cheater and a joker but he at least is confident and self assured. Jones is a bully and insecure. He is surrounded by sycophants and has taken the cowardly route in this one.

fighter Says, in 8-24-2012 at 07:22:24 from    

always been a Chaels fan! Chael is the Man!!

wallie Says, in 8-24-2012 at 07:32:53 from    

f****** hate sonnen he’s full of s***.

but goddamn even i have to admit he’s right on this one

MGMA Says, in 8-24-2012 at 07:33:54 from    

Pro-wrestling psychology 101:
Chael has made it pro-wrestling style. He was a vilain and they put him against a bigger vilain that acted like a coward and that turned Chael into a hero/good guy. Nice one UFC for ripping a page out the pro-wrestling book!

Jon Jones “Just Do Nothing”

iron_cobra Says, in 8-24-2012 at 08:32:30 from    

Im really surprised that shogun and machida turned
down that fight. especially machida he had a short fight with bader. but as athletes they should be ready for a fight against anyone. kudos to chael for stepping up but jones is smart to turn down the fight. chael would have wrestled his ass off. and pounded his ass against the cage. jones is scared to lose the title and that would have been his biggest opponent. i hope vitor rips his face off.

Maynard Says, in 8-24-2012 at 09:54:46 from    

damn…Chael is so right…

Tankatomic Says, in 8-24-2012 at 10:19:44 from

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 8-24-2012 at 11:21:02 from    

THose who think CHael has a chance against JJ are smokign some serious crack…. anyway, why does CHael keep getting tittle shots like its a pinata?
Im actualyl on JJ’s side although I dislike him. Chael simply doesnt deserve ANOTHER title shot just cos he’s Chael SOnnen.
With that beign said, Jones should definitely fight SOMEONE, to avoid cancelling event.

oreilzac Says, in 8-24-2012 at 13:53:48 from    

White quoted Jones as telling the president, “I’m not fighting Chael Sonnen with eight days’ notice,” and said Jones’ trainer, Greg Jackson, advised that taking on Sonnen “would be the biggest mistake of” Jones’ life. Jackson, said White, “is a sport killer.”

Jackson fired back Friday, telling MMAWeekly.com, “It was actually three days notice; it’s not eight days’ notice because you don’t train the last week of a fight camp. That’s when you do media and weight cutting; there’s no real training going on there. When I was asked if fighting Sonnen for a world title on three days’ notice was a smart idea, I said no.

“Chael is in a great position in that he’d been training with Dan Henderson for this fight, getting him ready, and he’s in shape. He knows the plan on what they’re going to do to get around Jon. So he’s ready to go. It’s not like he’s stepping off the couch and into a fight. So taking a fight of that caliber with a guy that’s ready, on three days’ notice, for a world championship, without any time to prepare, is just not professional to me.”

FedorFails Again Says, in 8-24-2012 at 14:02:43 from    

Chael really has a point here, if Jones did accept he would only have to worry about 8 days worth of Chael injecting TRT in his ass. Now he’s going to have to worry about hael injecting 90 days worth of TRT into his ass!!! You messed up JJ, big time!

kinglyfellow Says, in 8-24-2012 at 14:47:02 from    

Not a fan of Bones, but F*** both Dana & Chael. I’m with Bones on this one. He had nothing to gain and everything to loose. Accepting the fight would be doing both Dana & Chael a favor. Who wants to do favors for a*******. Dana, FYI, injuries are part of the game. Perhaps it is time for better contingency plans…CO-MAIN EVENTS for all fight cards.

Roe Jogan Says, in 8-24-2012 at 14:54:41 from    

Forget the fans, forget the UFC, forget the event venue and gate. Jon Jones f***** all the fighters on the card and their trainers, partners, coaches, management, sponsors, etc… many people have just lost their livelihood for a period of time because Jones ducked Chael?


He should be able to roll right through Sonen. WTF?

… and for that many, many, many good hard working people just lost their paychecks.

MangyMongoose Says, in 8-24-2012 at 16:39:42 from    

F*** yeah.

kinglyfellow Says, in 8-24-2012 at 16:58:47 from    

Get in formed, Jones said he would fight Chael 9/22. The UFC f***** all the fighters and trainers. Injuries have happened before, injuries will happen again, they should have been better prepared.

Roe Jogan Says, in 8-24-2012 at 18:10:59 from    

Kingly…. got any proof or a link to the lie you just told? We didn’t think so.

Jones just lost a ton of future endorsements. He is lucky he just signed with Nike, because that is the last big one he gets. Any others that come his way will be at a vastly reduced rate.

This was a very costly move. He could have beat Sonen easily. WTF? He just screwed over every fighter and their teams on this card.

dave Says, in 8-25-2012 at 03:18:45 from    

even though I dislike Chael I have so much more respect for him then that fake ass bitch jones. the guy doesn’t give a fu$k about so many fighters who worked so hard to get paid few grands, let alone so many people who bought tickets, flights and hotel reservations. I can’t see why he wouldn’t fight a guy who isn’t even training and is 185lb’er. what a bi*ch!

freee Says, in 8-25-2012 at 04:11:07 from    

a low life crook trying to fight a champ?? LOL. JJ did the right thing.
