Chael's reverse was more of a wrestling powermove than a switch.

Indeed he did iirc... If he gets the opportunity Saturday, I'd at least expect an attempt from Chael this time seeing as how he has demonstrated it on Stann recently.

I could absolutely, absolutely see a Hughes vs. Almeida submission from Chael.


Chael catches Silva in a tight sprawled guillotine/darce early on and just decides to wrench it 100%, Silva goes to sleep, the MMA world explodes and implodes at the same time.

Yea i did see some good positions from Chael for a few subs. The only reason he might not go for it is if he isnt confident he can get it he wont want to risk loosing position. Otherwise i could totally see it happen similar to what happened to Stann.

Would be mindblowing if it really happened! Anything's possible I guess..if Silva gets really frustrated from being taken down he could make a mistake, if he's human.

Seriously though what world do you live in? Lets face it, YOU would do the macarena in a sundress for 800k buys..
Well history dictates that some people would do anything for money...the problem comes in when people not HARD UP for money continues to do unethical things to increase it.

I personally am not rich or well off by any means but NO you wouldnt catch me degrading a country or a person and his family for some money. Some people are just built differently I guess.

Side note for any degen gamblers... at my last check, Sonnen winning by sub was paying out around 20:1 odds...

Im certain your telling the truth but at the same time its kinda hard to say what would would do when you are NOT in that position. Im sure you would agree with that.

Or i should actually say "Its kinda EASY to say you would/wouldnt do something knowing you would never be in that spot"

In a number of weeks no.

But remember the first Silva/Sonnen fight was nearly 2 years ago, I would imagine Chael's spent the last two years working on his ju-jitsu non-stop. Of course he's had years to work on it throughout his entire career but one could maybe say the Silva loss was the straw that broke the camels back.
