Man i love this fight, i can honestly say i am completely impartial and in my heart of hearts i really have no preference for this fight.
Part of me thinks Anderson Silva ends this fast and to be honest this is probably the most likely outcome - then there's this other parts where Sonnen totally dominated him in the last fight and has the perfect style to exploit the only whole exposed in Anderson's game.
Honestly this is one of the few fights where i think ALL outcomes are possible.
Anderson via TKO/KO? Ofcourse.
Anderson via Submission? Happened before, absolutely possible.
Anderson via Decision? If he can stuff the takedowns he will dominate on the feet, this is possibly the least likely outcome as he'll surely finish Sonnen if he can stuff the TDs.
Sonnen via TKO/KO? YES, this one is being severly overlooked, if it goes the same way as last time i would not be shocked to see a GnP TKO.
Sonnen via Submission? Absolutely possible for me, there are plenty of sources acknowledging Anderson is not a truly elite grappler.
Sonnen via Decision? Almost happened last time.
I predict Diego Sanchez/Cathal Pendred by Split Decision.
