Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen fight video preview for UFC light heavyweight title (fan made)

Chael Sonnen has yet to secure a UFC light heavyweight title shot against reigning division champion Jon Jones, but if he did, this is probably what the build-up would look like.

Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight title.

Who wants it?

I can think of at least one mixed martial arts (MMA) fan, judging by the time and effort he (or she) put into this fan-made video preview hyping a fantasy fight between "Bones" and the "American Gangster." Actually, it's a contest that almost took place in the main event of UFC 151, when Dan Henderson was forced to withdraw due to injury.

Except Jones wasn't having it.

Still, that hasn't kept the former middleweight number one contender from picking a fight with the lanky-but-lethal 205-pound kingpin, who recently disposed of Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 last month in Toronto. "Hendo" is expected to fight Lyoto Machida for the next crack at the crown, but know that Sonnen will always be lurking somewhere in the shadows.

Even more so if he wins his light heavyweight return in a rematch against Forrest Griffin at UFC 155 later this year.
