Sonnen vs. Jones Its on!

By Josh Reese

Sonnen and Jones will fight and be TUF coaches, no doubt it could help save TUF on FX. The UFC will use two of its top 5 most marketable fighters to face off in a coaching tug a war. In the past two seasons of TUF they used champion Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, and top contender Urijah Faber for the 1st season (TUF Live) and currently using Heavyweight contenders Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin. The ratings of went on a downward slide 1.3 million for the TUF Live opener to last week’s 624,000 thousand viewers. No doubt due to weak coaches and a Friday time slot that they were just not going to beat. Now the hot roumor is today during the UFC’s media call is that Dana White will announce TUF will move to a friendlier Tuesday slot. Sonnen and Jones have been slated to meet on April 27th, Sonnen has been pulled from his fight with Forest Griffen.
