Horrible? That's hardly the case. It definitely needed improvement, but to call it horrible is a bit harsh.

Personally, I rather see a finish in the last round every time. First round KOs are exciting, but do not always show who the superior fighter is. By round 3 or 5 it is usually more obvious. Unless a fighter absolutely dismantles an opponent the first few minutes and then stops them. For my money, I'd rather see a war of attrition for 3-5 rounds. But that's just me being selfish.

On a side note: Sonnen did look in phenomenal shape. I'm sure he is experienced enough to avoid overtraining, but I've seen it happen before.

Should be a great fight. I usually do not root for specific fighters, but there are guys I like to see win. I care more about exciting fights. But, being a former Soldier myself, it's hard not to pull for Stann.
