No one so far has been able to walk through JBJ's strikes, I don't see Sonnen being any different. JBJ is great at controlling distance, Rua - Page - Evans fights show that. I agree with the other poster in that this will be like his fight with Rua even though Rua and Sonnen are completely different fighters with different styles. Sonnen is going to be left crumbling on the floor.

Do you remember someone walking through Anderson's shots before Chael did it?

What about after Chael did it?

When I think about those questions the only answers I can summon are "no" and "no".

The first fight Sonnen landed some punches without a doubt but I doubt AS was coming at full force. He admitted in training camp leading up to the first fight that his plan was to submit him no matter what for disrespecting Nog's BJJ with the happy meal joke. People can call that a fluke, but when a man is known for knocking out people left and right openly says he wants to submit someone (before the fight happens) and does so I take his word for it.

Not to mention the night and day difference between the first and second fight.

I know my sig is different now but I am probably Anderson's biggest fan here.

I'm talking about the second fight. Anderson came out swinging, Chael walked through it and took him down, then held him there for the rest of the round. 2nd round Anderson kept his hands down and threw hard strikes but they didn't discourage Chael from shooting huge doubles.

Bones doesn't have the 1 punch power or timing to catch Chael coming in and KO him, but if he can stuff the shots he will take Chael to school.

Night and day is right. I had a lot more respect for Anderson coming out of the first fight because he used heart - rather than shorts and cage grabbing - to win.

Yeah I see where you are coming from. I don't know if JBJ has one punch ko (hasn't shown it so far), but he strikes aren't pillows either, Shogun can attest to that. He can catch Sonnen with an elbow or flying knee coming in, he's very versatile. Obviously Sonnen will try and pressure the fight, but I am not sure he has what it takes to muscle JBJ down.

Candian Psycho -

I'm a Sonnen fan, but you can't be serious. Sonnen fans have NO say when it comes to dirty tactics and unfair advantages, I mean the guy has been caught doping it up how more a cheater do you need to be? How can you say you have no respect for a fighter for using tactics to land an unfair advantage (debatable if it was done purposely) when you have the king of that as your avatar?

TRT is a legal substance. It isn't 'doping'. Sonnen's suspension was more a witch hunt and the result of improperly filed forms as opposed to anything else.

And I'm certain Silva 'accidentally' held onto Sonnen's shorts for 30 seconds as he landed a barrage of punches.

Wandy hates Sonnen, so this actually isn't a very odd thing for him to say. Remember that video of Wandy and Sonnen in a van? Definitely not friends.

Silva did hold those shorts on purpose and Sonnen deserved it for his inconsequent mouth. If Sonnen would take Silva down on the second round he probably would keep him there to the end of it and he would be finished on the third as followed TD attempts were all stuffed legally. His only chance was to boringly outscoring Anderson anyway.

If Anderson hamburgered Sonnen's face from the bottom, Jones can do the same, so I hope Sonnen is working in a solution for the case his plan works and he finds himself on Jones guard.

Not the amount he was taking nor for the intended reasons. What were his levels again? Wasn't he suspended or was about to get suspended? Why would they suspend him for a "legal" substance?
