Forrest Griffin via Submission (triangle choke) in the 1st round at 2:25. Mark my words.

How many of Chael's fights have you seen? You've said something, but you havn't backed it up with any kind of reasoning or example.

We've never seen him get schooled on the feet by anyone. Granted he got dropped by the best striker in MMA, but that was after he was badly winded from a brutal knee to the body on the ground. That remains the only time the man has ever been stopped via strikes. Statistically, he's also the least hit middleweight in UFC history. While it's not his bread and butter, Chael Sonnen is not a bad stand-up fighter for MMA by any stretch.

I'm assuming they're making this fight happen to see is Chael is ready for the heavier class. We'll see if Forrest has the heart and chin left (although Sonnen's punches aren't that hard, they are effective).

I honestly see Forrest losing, but it's not out of the realm to expect a miracle sub from Forrest ...

Perfect move. 205 class sucks right now and Sonnen won't see gold at 185.

Well he sure isn't seeing it at 205. I think he gets completely demolished by the topdogs and struggles with mid tier fighters.
