Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen fight reportedly being targeted for New Jersey on April 27, 2013, according to the folks at MMA Weekly. This would mark the fourth time "Bones" will have fought in the state, the last being his light heavyweight championship win over Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. This would be Sonnen's third trip to the "Garden State."
Pic: "Undefeated" Chael Sonnen text to Urijah Faber after UFC 149 loss to Renan Barao says, "Sorry you lost. I have no idea what it's like, I'm UNDEFEATED. Chael." In his own mind, certainly, in reality, not even close.
Pic: UFC 148's Chael Sonnen is raffling off a signed t-shirt prior to his fight with Anderson Silva in Las Vegas through his Mean Street Pizza shop in West Linn, Oregon. He's certainly not endearing himself (again) to those who hail from Brazil with the catchphrase, "A Brazilian is something a stripper gets," but then again, who cares if he doesn't. It's time to put up or shut up.
Pic: New UFC 148 poster with Chael Sonnen as the middleweight champion. Sure, he hasn't defeated Anderson Silva just yet, but that isn't stopping "The Peoples Champion" from showing off his new hardware before the July 7, 2012, "rematch of the century." Is this the image we can expect as soon as this Sunday or does Sonnen have too many teeth? Props to ThePeoplesCecil for the artwork.
No one ever said that Chael Sonnen wasn't confident. Just take a look at his own version of the UFC 148 promotional poster taken from his Twitter background complete with the "Gangsta from West Lynn, Oregon" front and center, and with the UFC middleweight title no less. Sonnen will be challenging the long reigning and pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva in the main event this Saturday night (July 7, 2012) in one of the biggest rematches of all time. Do you think this type of promotion could be getting in the head of "The Spider?"
