I wouldn't be surprised at all if Chael got a sub on Anderson. I remember at least two submission attempts (if you can even call those attempts, because he didn't really commit to them), one was a kimura, one was an arm triangle I think. Not sure why he didn't go 100% on that kimura though, it looked like it was locked in good, who knows if he would've subbed him though.

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.

So doing horrible things for lots of money makes it cool now?

hookers and hitmen must top the list of respectable professions nowadays.

The fact that sonnen is stooping to this length just for a few extra bucks makes it even worse, not better.

and Sonnen is?

even with the 300+ pitter-patter punches he landed he couldn't finish Silva with a choke.

O no someone's supposed morals don't match up with yours, I guess you're just superior to them.

I can't stand when people speculate on how they would act like a better man in the same situation when you've never been anywhere close to it.

Good to see Liddellianenko can compare talking a bitch of trash to the sex and drug trade. Because those things have so much in common....... I almost want to think you realize how ******* moronic those comparisons are, but I somehow doubt you do.
