Chael Sonnen would beat Anderson Silva in a kickboxing match

That's what he says.



Quote:
The biggest UFC fight of 2012 is just three and a half weeks away. It takes place July 7, when Anderson Silva defends his UFC middleweight title against nemesis Chael Sonnen.

Sonnen is the biggest and most unabashed trash-talker in the UFC (or any sport, for that matter), and he's beginning to ratchet up his verbal assault on Silva as the fight draws closer. In a two-minute preview video released by the UFC, Sonnen says he'll beat Silva no matter where the fight goes:

Make it a boxing match. I'll find a way to win. Make it a kickboxing match. I'll find a way to win. I'm not gonna play a dance-off with him. But if he wants to make it a combative mansport, I'll do it. Make it a jiu-jitsu match, make it a wrestling match, make it an MMA fight. It doesn't matter. He doesn't have anything that I, as an athlete, won't conquer. I'm a competitor. I will find a way to win, like I always do.

First of all, I'd like to congratulate Sonnen for creating the new word "mansport." I'll be using that one in plenty of stories I write in the future, so I offer a hearty thanks to West Linn's best for giving me new material.

As for the rest of the quote? I have no doubt that if Sonnen would do very well in a grappling match with Silva. He's one of the best wrestlers in mixed martial arts, after all, and we all saw what Sonnen was capable of during the first fight with Silva. Sonnen is a destructive, grinding force when he puts your back against the ground.

But we also saw one of Sonnen's biggest weaknesses during the first Silva bout: His sketchy submission defense. And it wasn't just the Silva bout that exposed that weak point. Of Sonnen's 11 career losses, 8 have come by submission. Defending submissions has never been his strong suit.

Sonnen, of course, has been known to say outlandish things in the interest of hyping a fight, and this is likely more of the same. But the idea of Silva vs. Sonnen in a grappling/jiu-jitsu match is certainly an intriguing one, isn't it?

Gee I wonder if this will get much hate?

yay mansport

Well he did nearly put Anderson on his ass with the first punch he landed in the first fight so it's not like it's out of the realm of possibility.

Sorry Anderson, Chael won't just sit there like Leites, Okami, Vitor, and the rest of the cans you've fought.

This just illustrates why the Sonnen fight was so much more competitive than any of Anderson's other title defenses - Sonnen is one of the few fighters he's faced in the UFC who isn't afraid of him.

Of course Sonnen doesn't have much of a chance against Silva in a kickboxing match, and I'm sure he knows it. I'm also sure that if he had to, he'd go in there and do his level best to stand with Silva, and it would look a lot less embarrassing than Vitor (a guy who does have a chance in a kickboxing match on paper) Standing there and getting kicked in the face.

How bout the bums Chael has faced? Lost to Forrest, fought Nate whos overrated, Okami as u said, Stann whos one dimensional, and Bisping who he lost to, and got manhandled by Demian.

Anderson obliterated Dan Hendo, Vitor, Forrest, Maia, Okami, and so forth.

This is just Sonnen being confident in his abilities. He beleives he is a great fighter and he is a great fighter. Could he beat Anderson in a kickboxing match? No, and Sonnen knows that. Can Anderson beat Sonnen in a wrestling match, No. Problem is this is not a kickboxing match and Sonnen is not going into the fight to strike with Anderson and this is not a wrestling match and Anderson is not going into this fight to wrestle with Sonnen.

So it all comes down to who can impose their will.

In order for Anderson to hit Sonnen he has to get close to Sonnen. This will give Sonnen the oppertunity to get his hands on Anderson and once he does Anderson is going down.

I would pay to watch them box / kickbox, just for the sheer enjoyment of seeing Chael get KTFO!

I never gave it any thought before, but it would be fun as hell to see certain fighters match up in a kickboxing/wrestling/submission grappling best 2 out of 3 wins type contest.

Mayhem should pitch it to mtv
