Uncle Chael, welcome to the world of mainstream television.
The trash-talking gangster from West Linn, Ore., recently won another popularity contest, this time to earn a spot opposite UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones on season 17 of the promotion’s flagship series, The Ultimate Fighter.
After the series, the two will fight to determine the best 205-pound warrior on earth.
My first thoughts on this were: “Holy shit, this is going to be hilarious. Jones is going to try to be all serious and helpful, and Sonnen is going to blast him over and over…”
Then I thought deeper into the decision, though, and I saw how flawed it is.
Entertaining as it may be, matching Sonnen with Jones is all wrong.
