Chael Sonnen's submission defense

I'm never made a thread in here, but I found this on mmacore and felt the uncontrollable urge to share...

Yeah, I especially like the one with Forrest Griffin where he gets pulled into a triangle, Griffin's legs slip apart, he lays happily against Griffin's cup, and gets triangled again.

I think he likes to work the limp like a fish defense...very secret and impossible to defeat...unless you've had 1 JJ class!

On a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the best and 1 the worst, i would say Chael's submission defense is at 2.

.



BELIEVE!

But he worked on it since then guys! He thought it was gay or something.. thats why he refused to train in it.

He already showed improvement against Nate, who gives out Black Belts.

So that's why he has 10 losses on his record.
Anderson via Triangle + nasty elbows anyone?

I could hand out a Black Belt too. That doesn't mean it means anything.

Marquardt is the ONLY JJ fighter who hasn't subbed Sonnen...and he was subbed by Maia a year and a half ago. How far could he have gotten technically?

He ground out a UD against Miller and Okami, but Okami is a stand-up guy and Miller has lost his last three in terrible fashion. The win over Marquardt is pretty much the only highlight reel in his entire career against groundfighters. But the lowlights, whoa nelly, the lowlights!

Also: anyone who thinks JJ is gay deserved 10 losses, 7 of which are from subs.

LOL Well I really like Chael, but I do admit that his submission defense isn't too good. Even with Nate, yes he didn't tap, but he did get caught several times. He's gonna have to be extremely weary of Silva's guard. Still though - Chael via decision

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

I will have to watch that fight again soon I think, was a real good fight as I remember so should be cool, but I cant recall a single situation where he passed Nate's guard, from what I recall they where just beating on each other Sonnen been on top position inside Nate's guard, my point been he hardly showed much technical on the ground.

Sonnen's chances against Silva are over rated, I would give him a 10% chance of beating Silva and that's because I'm been very generous.

I dont even think his submission defence or rather lack of is going to matter, I have Silva down for a first round KO or TKO standing.
