I sure hope loudmouth Sonnen knocks out Silva tomorrow!
Should've know just a bunch of geeks here lol
I would love for Silva to get beaten after his last few performances. To me it's more interesting when belts change hands a little more frequently. I tend to dislike any dominant athlete or team.
Same here man!
I'll be watching this no doubt
Let's see how Sonnen performs without the juice.
I guess we got our answer. Lol
yeah i am excited to see this fight! i would love for silva to get knocked out! ahahah
You're a bit late. Fight already happened.
Sonnen got crushed.
How do you think Sonnen is going to perform now that he is going after Jon Jones?
If he can't last one round with Silva, Jones is going to crush him. Granted Jones isnt as precise a striker as Silva, however Jones is still a better striker than Sonnen. Not to mention Jones is superior fighter in every category (wrestling, BJJ, ground and pound, submissions). Jones also has superior strength, speed, conditioning, and athleticism. Jones also holds a 10+ inch reach advantage. 99 out of 100 times Jones win this match up easily. The only chance Sonnen has is a lucky knockout shot, however Jones has an iron chin and is very elusive.
I am of the opinion that Jones is a better overall fighter than Silva. Honestly I don't know what Sonnen is smoking, but if you get ko'ed in the first round by Silva @ 185 why would you think you stand a chance against a bigger, stronger, and more well rounded fighter like Jones?
Jones wins by murder.
Silva took him out in the 2nd, by the way.
was really roooting for sonnen but hes such a spaz.
Any UFC fans still around?
Another Sonnen fight is coming up next week, this time against another P4P great Jon Bones Jones. What do you guys think will be the outcome?
Personally I think Chael is in for another butt-whoppin'. I think the odds are stacked against him and if he somehow pulls out a win, it'll be due to Jones being DQ's due to do cut or something.
I don't see Sonnen being able to compete with Jones. Jones is a total package, and so young. Jones needs to be thinking about A. superfight with Silva and B. moving to heavyweight(both of which are on his agenda). I see a Jones win in the 2nd round personally.
Well Chael almost lasted for a whole round, I thought the stoppage was a bit premature.
That big toe injury was NASTY! What's interesting is that if Chael was able to survive the last 30 seconds of that round, perhaps he may have been the new champ due to a doctor's stoppage. How weird is that?
That's twice now he's been seconds away from capturing gold, maybe it's just not meant to be for him.
