Sonnen: ‘Aldo runs through McGregor’


Chael Sonnen doesn’t think Conor McGregor will have much of a chance against Jose Aldo.

Conor McGregor is brash, charismatic and he speaks his mind, and this is why he has been likened to Chael Sonnen numerous times from both fighters and analysts alike. At one point, it seemed like McGregor took a page out of Sonnen’s playbook while trying to get a fight booked, but recently the Irishman has distanced himself from the common comparison.

Sonnen spoke about McGregor’s title bout against Aldo, and interestingly enough, Chael says that while he likes the way Conor promotes himself, he believes Aldo runs through him.

"I’ve never truly been on the McGregor bandwagon," Sonnen said during an appearance at the Anik and Florian podcast. "I love the entertainment value, but I don’t necessarily buy into the skill set."

"Kenny Florian, after McGregor had one fight in the UFC — it was an undercard fight — he pulls me aside and says ‘hey did you see the McGregor guy? I’m telling you this guy can beat Aldo. This guy has angles. This guy throws punches from weird directions’," he shared. "And Kenny had fought Aldo so it really meant a lot to me."

"Now here we are (close) to fight time, and I’m still not seeing what Kenny is seeing. I don’t know fighting as much as Kenny or Dominick (Cruz) do, but I’m thinking ‘man, Aldo is going to run through this guy’. The only reason I’m interested in this fight is because of the conversation I had two years ago with Florian!"

According to the former two-division title challenger, he doesn’t believe McGregor would win against the rest of the top featherweights either.

"When I look at the murderer’s row in the division, I think Frankie Edgar, Chad Mendes, and Jose Aldo. I just don’t think Conor McGregor can crack into that."

"I just want to go on the record and say that I don’t think it’s a close fight, and I think Aldo runs through him. That’s not a knock on Conor, I just have that much respect for Aldo."

NAC: ‘Highly unlikely Aldo will be denied medical clearance’ for UFC 189


The MMA world is still waiting to see if Jose Aldo will make it to July 11th to fight Conor McGregor in the UFC 189 main event in Las Vegas. It looked like Aldo vs. McGregor would be scrapped when news of an Aldo apparent broken rib first came to light, but a UFC press release stated that he’d suffered a rib bruise, and the fight is still on.

While Brazilian and American doctors apparently share conflicting views as to the extent of Aldo’s injury, the decision ultimately lies at the feet of the Nevada Athletic Commission. Right now, according to executive director Bob Bennett, a commission doctor is awaiting Aldo’s medical documents to determine whether or not Aldo can compete in just over two weeks time. As of now, prospects are looking good. (Via ESPN’s Brett Okamoto)

"Right now, according to Dr. Trainor’s communications with Dr. Davidson, it appears Aldo had a rib contusion and a cartilage injury," Bennett said. "Dr. Trainor is currently awaiting to see the medical documents and at this point in time, we think it is highly unlikely Aldo will have any trouble competing. Dr. Trainor has told me this type of injury (rib contusion) is fairly common and usually improves within a few days."

"We already have Dr. Trainor in communication with the UFC and we are making sure Aldo’s injury is not going to prevent him from fighting," Bennett said. "We’re already working on it now. We’ve been discussing this for the last week, going back and forth, trying to get documents. Upon further medical review of Aldo’s documents, we will have a confirmed answer."

If it is, however, found out that Aldo does have a rib fracture, chairman Francisco Aguilar says the commission wouldn’t necessarily automatically rule him out of the big fight.

"That’s something I would have to talk to the doctors about and find out how it would impact the fight," Aguilar said. "From a novice’s perspective, I would think a rib injury would have a major impact on a fighter’s abilities, but I would need a doctor’s analysis before denying medical clearance."

Should Aldo be nixed from the McGregor bout, he will be replaced by Chad Mendes in an interim featherweight title fight.

How do you guys feel about Fallon Fox? The tranny mma fighter…

I was just curious about y’all’s thoughts on the subject. With all the love we have shown for trannys in the past here in this forum… If you weren’t already aware this dude who is now a female competes against females in mma. I found out about six months ago and got into words with him/her on facebook. Then recently got into a big debate with a mma group I follow on Fb and was surprised to hear all the mixed responses from hardcore mma fans. This bitch recently broke the orbital socket of its last opponent. I just think it’s ridiculous honestly and opens too many doors for the future of mma.
