it's going to shock poor Chael to learn that not only do they have computers in Brazil, some of them have photoshop too

Seagal says he's been drilling striking and defensive wrestling techniques with Silva, but he also says there are techniques they thought were illegal, which turn out to be legal. I'm thinking maybe wristlocks and other holds?

Opinion on Seagal is varied so think what you will about this.

Jones vs Evans, when Jones was holding his arms out toward Rashad's face before whipping his elbows in, there are several techniques Rashad could have easily applied to submit Jon standing, basic wrist/arm locks which are hard to deal with. I wonder if many of these moves are assumed illegal because of how effective they are? End of the day, it's a limb lock like any other. Just a thought.

Isn't it illegal to grab the opponents gloves though? That would make it pretty tough to pull off a wrist lock.

Yes, it's illegal to grab the opponent's gloves. A wrist lock would be hard anyways as the wrist are stabilized and protected by the wraps.

I am picking Sonnen. AS has had a long layoff and like last time he will have to square his hips up to try and defend the TD thus making his striking limited (for him that is). I think Sonnen will win via Decision.

There are standing elbow locks Evans could have slapped on that injure similarly to the common armbar.

The comment about legal moves has intrigued me, the only grey areas I can think of would be in grappling and Seagal said he's focussed on stand up.

The mystery this guy is adding to Silva's fights is great IMO, though some think he's a loon.

Haha hilarious pic! I agree with Silva. He will murder Chael tomorrow. I''m sure Chael will put up a great fight. I know Sonnen pretty much "won" that last fight but at the end of the day, it was Silva with the submission. That's the great thing about MMA. You could be losing for every round until the last 10 second you pull off some sub. Comeback of the century

I don't post here too often but I check this site everyday. I'm going with Chael on this one. I think Anderson's skills, statts etc are amazing but for some reason I can't warm to him. Thats not a reason to pick him to lose though. I just think at the end of the day trash talking aside Chael is gonna run him through the cage and bring the beatdown. I would also love to see how somebody as dominant as Silva would respond to a loss. He could become even more lethal. Regardless; I can't wait.

Shinya Aoki broke a guys arm that way. Standing armlock when they were in the clinch.
