  • Chael Sonnen is certain fans are excited to see Jon Jones because they hope he’ll finally lose at heavyweight
  • “The Bad Guy” suggests that the light heavyweight has become a bit boring because of Jones’ prolonged dominance

Since UFC president Dana White opened up the door for Jon Jones’ move to the heavyweight division, fans have been thrilled to finally see “Bones” go toe-to-toe with the biggest guys in the promotion. On the other hand, Chael Sonnen thinks most of the people yearning to see Jones’ return were just fancying witnessing him face a real challenge at last.

The fans are tired of Jones?

According to Sonnen, he senses that much of the excitement about Jones’ looming UFC comeback are generated by fans hoping to see him finally “get beat” inside the octagon. “The Bad Guy” suggests that a lot of people speculate that “Bones” was too good for the 205-pound division and a well-rounded heavyweight  fighter could expose him.

“Hey Jon, what are you weighing? What are you weighing? Because this whole heavyweight thing, the whole heavyweight thing was only contingent on us, the audience, believing with some kind of reasonable hope that you’re finally going to get your ass kicked,” Sonnen said on his YouTube channel. “That’s it. We don’t need to see you at heavyweight. We don’t need to see your fat ass out there. We want to see you get beat. That’s it.”

“Bones” ruined the light heavyweight division

Barring the no contest from his second fight with Daniel Cormier, and the disqualification from the Matt Hamill bout in 2009, Jones’ pro MMA record is still flawless.

For Sonnen, the former light heavyweight champ’s dominance is good for his part but has become less appealing to the fans over time.

“Jon was ruining that division,” Sonnen added. “He was ruining it through dominance. There was nobody that you could even imagine could deal with Jones. Jon had two or three split decisions … He won the decision but lost the fight (against Dominick Reyes), Jon vs. (Thiago) Santos was not supposed to go anywhere. Jon vs. (Anthony) ‘Lionheart’ (Smith) was not supposed to go five rounds… As fun as some of Jon’s matches turned out to be, nobody anticipated them. This business does not survive without anticipation.”

Jones is expected to face former champion Stipe Miocic for his heavyweight debut. The fight has to actualize but “Bones” previously pointed out that he will “wait until September” when Miocic is already at his best.
