How will Chael P. Sonnen be remembered in the UFC?

ufc 55A unknown wrestler with a mediocore record makes his UFC and LHW debut, fights a good fight but gets submitted.

Ultimate fight night 4gets a decision rematch win against prangley (who submitted him in their first fight).

UFC 60Another rematch against an opponent who submitted him in their first fight.... Gets submitted again by Horn.

Goes on a win streak with some low level mma organisations.

WEC 31Fights Paulo for the middleweight divison, again shows beautiful wrestling... but that damn bjj gets him again.

WEC 33 & 36gets a decision win and almost a year later gets his revenge against Paulo by grinding a decision win and showing better submission defense.

comeback at ufc 95fights maia, a highly praised submission artist (ud almost think they wanted to give maia a easy fight), gets a beautriful triangle 'slapped' on him after a nice throw by maia.

That last one gives sonnen a record consisting of 8 submission losses and only 1 tko loss (the other a cut which doesnt really count).

This is where sonnen started to be known my the mainstream fan and got 3 straight wins against miller, okami and marquard.

Then he begins this epic trash talking (which dana reffered to as mohammad ali's) about how he's not scared of silva and will bring the fight to him.

After the silva vs maia fight even the silva fans were probally waiting for such an opponent for the champ.

Shocks the world by dominating silva and we all know what went down from that point till yesterday night.


I personally will remember him as an athlete, a fighter who doesnt back down for anybody, not to for get an amazing promoter but most of all the man who wasn't scared of silva and was willing to do everything to show the world what he was capable of.

I'm a silva fan and have always disliked sonnen from the day he started to disrespect legends as cro cop,wanderlei and the noguiera brothers.

But i'll never dislike him as a fighter

PS @thelyotolegion

Your the worst mma fan ever, u praised machida all the way and replied to almost every machida topic during the so called 'lyoto legion'. He gets ko'd by shogun and you were saying how you didn't care and your opinion on him hadn't changed at all. Though its obvious to everyone your way less biassed and changed your profile pic to cruz (or cruz was a bit later).

Same with sonnen, if you only knew how frustrating it was to check out an sonnen vs silva topic on the forum because of your fanboy behaviour on every single topic involved with sonnen or silva.

A day after his rematch with sonnen guy made an topic joking how everyone would forget about sonnen. You reply with 'why cause he lost one fight' and claimed your opinion on him hasn't changed. Though you hopp over to the bj bandwagon...... weird.

Ik making a argument over someone changing his profile pic is a bit silly but still its stupid you do it almost immidiatly after your fighter loses.
Just saying, I dont think guys like you are considered real fans.

Honestly, Chael will always be the guy that has come closest than anyone else to beating Anderson. People will always come back to the first Chael/Silva war. This is how he will be remembered.

He must be devastated, however this war has made a name for himself , and he is not retiring. He has a lot of fighting left, the future will determine how he is remember. If he has mediocre success the rest of the way, then his legacy will be tainted.

I believe he should be remembered for what he was a very good wrestler with a loud mouth who failed twice to live up to the hype he created. I believe he should be remembered as the braggart Silva broke physically and mentally.

When did it become the law you can only root for one fighter? FYI, as soon as BJ and Rory's fight is over, I'm gonna switch it up to Condit for the GSP fight. You wanna bitch about that too?

I would say it isn't over yet so we don't know. Maybe he and silva will have a third fight in the future or maybe he will move to the LHW division and do well there or maybe silva will move to the LHW division and Chael will rule the MW division.
