This is stupid. Do you realize how many people have submitted Sonnen from the bottom?
At no time did I ever say that Silva is renowned for subbing people from his back. I said he could, that simple. You taking what I said as, "Silva WILL submit him from his back,", instead of COULD is very, very, very stupid, borderline retarded.

It's a short notice fight. They announced it was a 3 rounder the same day they announced the fight.

I have never bet on a fight (other than who buys the next round) in my life.

I'm seriously considering putting $1000 down on this fight. It's ~$83 dollars for free. There's no way in hell Silva loses this.

Not really, Lutter controlled Anderson easily before doing what he does best, getting gassed. At that, he still got another takedown but made no effort to pass, strike or defend subs.

All the same I think in the last fight Anderson showed much improved BJJ with stifiling his opponent and keeping them from working on strikes or passing, and if he managed to do that with Chael then it will be no bother for Sonnen.

I will not send my mental thoughts out to Bonnar to make him go balls to the wall in this one!

No kidding. I'm putting money on Bonnar, probably like $100 sure I'm probably going to lose it, but I just won't drink that much this weekend. And its a chance to win what? $1200 or $1400 last time I seen.

Yeah man, it's not the hardest thing to see Bonnar winning. I personally give Bonnar a MUCH higher chance of winning than Cody Mac has against Chad Mendes, but the odds are more against Bonnar this time.
