Also, Dana White would love to have a champion like Chael (he even hyped him up imo at that press conference).
I don't have a problem with the choice but i doubt in case if it is other than Chael the fight would happen. How can you sell the Weidman-Jones fight? Its one thing Weidman wanted the fight, the other thing is he isn't a 205 pounder. Atleast Chael had experience in that weightclass.
So pretty much Dana White throw Jon Jones and his coaching team under the bus.
honestly, i dont think there's anyway jones would have lost to sonnen. i know its combat and anything can happen, but sonnen doesnt have TNT in his fists like hendo does. and i understand why jones turned the fight down, i'm just saying i can also see why dana white is pissed off.
