1 million sounds good. Still allows me to do the OU Challenge that I like to do if I do lose.

The point was that Sonnen isn't some bum. Considering how great everyone thinks Silva and Jones are, people certainly use those losses to label Chael a hack.
I can see why you would think that about some people but that is not the case with me. IMO more people overrate him for his performance vs Spider in the 1st fight. I have said many times I consider him a top 5 MW and even as high as #3. Which is far from a scrub. I just don't think he anywhere close to being a ranked LHW. But IMO Chael has done nothing to suggest he is. Ever.
