    He said the reason why he made that prediction was because he heard the story of Jones hiding under the ring to avoid drug testing. But it was the hit and run accident that pulled him from the fight.

    Can you source this?

    As far as I'm aware, this claim was on a Reddit AMA and Sonnen did not explain why.

    This is when Cain and JDS were atop the heavyweight division. Not a lot of people would have predicted a Browne victory over either of those two, even after his destructions of Gonzaga, Overeem, and Barnett.

    "No" is by far the safest answer for any fighter who is unproven against top 5 and has not been dominating in other orgs.

    Who had just demolished 3 solid guys.

    Chael knew.

    He always knows.

    And if Anderson was juiced to the gills Chael would have been champ for 24 hours.

    Which sports analyst is measured by their ability to predict wins? What sport? I know of almost hundreds of broadcasters, media and analyst in several sports, but never has their ability to pick a winner been the defining factor of their merit.

    Normally I'd claim, this is an example of acting dumb/ignorant just to take a jab at someone, but I'm willing to bet, the MMA fan who made this has no idea what a sports analyst does.

    Thanks, I'm familiar with this video/story.

    I don't want to listen to it again riight now, but I don't recall Sonnen attributing his thought that AJ/JJ would be cancelled due to this.

    Does he do that in this vid?
