According to Fabricio Werdum, there’s little chance that Chael Sonnen walks out of UFC 159 as light heavyweight champion. Jon Jones is the complete fighter and close to heavyweight level felt Werdum.
“I find it hard someone beat Jon Jones today,” said Werdum to TATAME. “It is a very complete guy. It’s a big guy, almost a heavyweight.”
Sonnen enters the fight for the first time in 10 months and off a loss to Anderson Silva. He hasn’t been this heavy in over 10 years.
Jones will look to break the record for most consecutive title defenses with five. Each title defense has come from a former UFC champion as Jones teases a move to heavyweight.
