For nostalgias sake-

Funny how 10 years later their styles havnt changed at all, except they just a little better at doing it. I wouldnt be surprised if their fight turns out the exact same.

I'm saying he isn't going to do any better at 205 and isn't going to beat anyone near the top. He stands a better chance winning fights at 185.

Let's see if he treats him the same way Silva did. Probably not :-P not the most exiting match ever, but it will be interesting to see Chael back at 205

I would be surprised to say the least if Chael subbed Forrest.

But yea, I like the move to 205. But I don't care for the fight.

I guess it will be interesting to see how Chael does vs. a bigger blackbelt.

And interesting to see Forrest vs. some pillow hands. Maybe he can take some shots and while being able to work his BJJ.

My question is what happens if this is all stand up? I think Sonnen has the better hands. But Forrest has the length and kicks.

Well at least he has potential to work his way up to a title shot. Even if he were to get smashed by Bones. There isn't much at 205 right now. I think he will balk up and could easily beat some tough guys. I think he could beat Gustaf. Bader. Shogun/Sonnen would be interesting with how much Shogun seems to be slowing.

At the VERY least there are at least interesting matchups. What about Sonnen/Lil Nog? Sonnen/Machida? Sonnen/Rashad? Sonnen/Rampage? Fresh matchusps.

Besides. He has had hard weight cuts for a few fights now. He probably almost NEEDS to make the move anyway.

I feel like Forrest has made it clear he has no real motivation. He basically walks around wearing this:



Then you have Sonnen, who is kind of in limbo after losing to Anderson twice. Make it a catch weight and you have all the making of a fight I really don't see any relevance in.

Why? Sonnen is going to 205 and Forrest is staying at 205.

It's not a catch weight? I must have been freaking hammered last night. For some weird reason I thought I read is was a catch-weight. That's a little better then.

No it's at 205, I don't think it's possible for Forrest to make anything below 205, he and Rampage are the biggest LHW's out there at 240 when not in camp.
