Sonnen vs. Rampage, Wand, and Vitor.

As a Sonnen fan I have to admit his chances against Jones are pretty bleak but much has been made about his future, I don't think he can beat Jones but I do think he has some potentially interesting fights with Vitor, Wanderlei and if he re-signs, Rampage.

What do you guys think about those three fights?

Rampage and Wandy are both going to get wrestlefuzzed. And this is coming from a Wandy fan. But Belfort is actually one guy where I think that even if he does get taken down, he might be able to pull off a sub somewhere. Vitor at least utilizes his good BJJ.

I've wanted to see Sonnen beat down Wand for years now, purely for enjoyment. The only fight I could see being remotely competitive, however, would be Vitor vs. Sonnen. Both Sonnen and Vitor are ridiculously strong, and as was said, Vitor would actually stand a chance off of his back. I still want to know who the legitimate number two MW in the UFC is, and so I'm hoping this particular fight happens after Jones does his thing.

Rampage has stated that after this fight with Glover, he's done. Silva is only a shell of his former self, but he still has some power in those kicks/knees/punches.

I'd like to think the most competitive fight would be Vitor/Sonnen. Chael would have to be careful on the ground as Belfort is no slouch in JJ.

Imagine this scenario: Freak upset, Sonnen wins LHW belt. Then, he grants Vitor the shot and loses.

We have Belfort vs. Jones II. Ahhh a guy can wish.......

The only upset will be if Sonnen loses to that amateur, Jones.

I'm a fan of Sonnen, I do hope he pulls it off (as unlikely as it is).

Why would anyone want to see Wandy beat down out of pure enjoyment? Do fighters who have had ridiculous amounts of exciting fights and always come to fight irritate you?

That's a pretty ridiculous assumption.

It could be that I'd like to see one of my favourite fighters stomp the man who's been taking verbal shots and dragging his name through the mud for the better part of a year now. Yes, we'll go with that.

Name one single person Sonnen has beaten that is even worthy of note. Wand has destroyed Rampage 2wice, and beaten Dan Henderson. lol, a Prime Wandy would make short work of Sonnen then take a piss on him, and even Sonnen your lord would not deny this.

I have always hated Wand.

Hopefully Stann KOs him and the Chael can grapple him to death.
