No, fighters rarely come in at 100%... But you can't compare bruised ribs to a sore ankle.

Yeah, not saying Chael has great striking, Anderson is technically far superior. However, to "show" my point, watch the first full minute (60 seconds, at about 1 minute in wrestling starts coming into play and that's when people say Silva hurt his rib) of the fight. Nobody ever threw that kind of pace on Silva, and it shows, Sonnen's 100% attack pace right from the bell got to Silva, he had no idea what to do about it and I fully expect this in the second fight. Link below of the fight.

On a side note, and it sounds silly, but I would honestly train heavily on takedowns if I was Silva. Look at Penn vs. Fitch. I bet if Silva came in taking him down, he could surprise and get those takedowns (at least the first one), and being a great grappler himself, it would startle Sonnen and mess up his pacing/gameplan, and take away Sonnen's opening pace and calm things down to Silva's liking. I just don't take this seriously as it won't happen.

I don't buy his rib injury excuse. Tell me the last person who got in Anderson's face right at the start of the bell, never holding back, rushing him and straight up taking the fight to him? Anderson requires time to feel his opponent out before he can get shots off, Sonnen didn't let him, he punched him in the head, got in his face, threw him on the ground and kept him there..
Leben went on straight forward from start on and it ended in a 100% striking accuracy from Silva until the TKO at 49 seconds. Silva doesn't necessarily need the timing phase to be able to hit his opponents, he needs the timing if he wants to knock them down or out with a single jab.

It doesn't sound too silly to me. As Silva is a Judo black belt, he probably has quite some TDs similar to Greco-Roman style wrestling in his own repertoire. And surprising techniques are always a good thing to have and to mess up the opponent's gameplan.

Sonnen would bounce up like GSP and reverse it in a matter of seconds, Chael wants to be on the ground tied up, Anderson would never try that.

Leben was the last, but I meant someone who doesn't hold their head up and their hands down walking forward like a complete retard.

It sounds silly to me as I don't see him ever doing it, not because it wouldn't work.

I don't think he would. I think if Silva studied up a lot on takedowns and top control for this fight, he could get on top and be on top long enough to put the pace at his level and to calm the fight down.

I do not think he could win a straight wrestling match, or continue to take Sonnen down, but it would jolt Sonnen's mind/gameplan enough to give Anderson the pace he wants and the control he, in my opinion, is going to desperately need in the first 2 minutes of this fight to make sure it goes his way (minus subbing off his back).

I honestly believe the first two minutes of this fight tells absolutely everything about how the rest of this fight is going to happen.

I can't believe how many people think Chael will do the same thing he did in the first fight ie: beat Anderson up for 5 rounds and win a UD. Um, yeah, if he does the same thing in the second fight as the first, he will of course, lose all over again.

You're nuts if you think any of Chael's baby talk is going to effect Anderson in any negative way shape or form. Anderson is far to experienced and professional for that. He knows Chael is a just a character for the media and not a real fighter and Silva will prove it all over again.

I just can't wait to hear what excuse Chael and his Fans use the say they actually won this time too, even though he doesn't have the belt.

The trash talk has mirrored the first fight. Chael came on Strong, Silva weathered the storm, Chael wilted and Silva showed him what's up. End of one story, start of the next story with the same ending.

Chael has stated that he would do anything to hold the title even for just one night..

Could this be why he came in with such a high T:E?

He would have been the champion until the tests came back.

Because of this, what are the chances that he comes in with elevated levels again?

If I remember right, Chael's reason for suspension was changed to lack of disclosure and was shortened because of that. I would imagine that means if he does the same exact thing but just properly tells them this time, he should be fine.

But there's a good chance I'm completely wrong since I'm just guessing. If his high T:E levels are still unacceptable, then I doubt we'll see it again. No way does he make the same mistake twice.

his T:E was something like 16:1.. Legal limit is 6:1. Even if he'd properly disclosed everything like he should have then he still would have popped hot.. it would have been a similar to the Overeem situation.

So, my above question still stands.

Doesnt Chael Sonnen deny that his TE ratio was 16:1 and that was falsely reported??

(Even tho i am a Chael fan i also am a realest and realize Chael was probably lying when he said that.)
