A fighter who lacks the skill to compete at the highest level who always get titleshots because he can troll, fk me thats sad. And it just shows that all you really need to do to get rich and famous in the UFC is talk alot of shit and be far far up Danas hole.

Sonnen has balls of steel for taking this fight? well if anything it shows he atleast has half a brain. If Sonnens balls are made of steel then mine should be made of the same stuff Wolverines head is, because I would have taken that fight for the reward Sonnen gets & I'm a featherweight with low level amateur fighting skills. I mean how bad can the beating get, the ref saves you before you die anyway.

I know it's not comparable but the idea of him NOT taking the fight when he has absolutely nothing to lose and so much to gain well....I'm amazed that people think it's something to celebrate.
Come off it, Sonnen doesn't have the ability to fight at the highest level?! Who are you kidding. He put a beat down on the P4P No1 fighter for 23 and a half minutes before getting submitted. If that isnt the ability to compete at the highest level I dont know what is.

And I am by no means a Sonnen fan!

How the fuk does Sonnen have the biggest rivalry with Anderson Silva, move up to LHW, and immediatley have the biggest with JBJ? Lol, dudes a genius. He takes his oppertunities so well. He knows that Brazil was the soft spot for Silva, and then he used Silva's awful first fight to spur him on even more (even though he won). He at first was deperate with JBJ, but now he's right there in his head and I beat Bones is fuming.

Well at 205 I don't think he beats any of the top five fighters.

Had to say I can see him beating Shogun, bader, Rampage, who else is a top five fighter? Evans,Machida, Jones...no chance for chael, but everyone else is fair game.

Yet he earned a title shot lmao.

But yeah I agree with you. Interesting fights ahead for him, but I see him struggling with a lot of people. If he picks his fights he could well EARN a shot. He'd beat Shogun imo and I think there are some big possible wins for him with Evans or Page, but I think the main contenders beat him every time.

Sonnen doesnt beat any top 5 guy at LHW IMO.

This is what makes Jones turning down the fight so infuriating to me.

I can't see him doing much above the middle level at 205.
Ofcourse I could be wrong, but thats what discussion boards are about, opinions & predictions.
