I'm sorry it makes you 'sick' that some people can see passed their own personal distaste for a fighter.
Sersiously? You people are so delusional if you think Hendo couldn't knock Sonnens face off. The man just went on an epic run that Chael Sonnen could only dream about, Chael Sonnen could put plaster in his gloves and still not possess the ability to even phase Hendo. He would have to put Hendo on his back for the entire fight. I think the old man can find that chin, Sonnen ain't running away like Machida. He will come forward and eventually get KTFO.

How picking Hendo over Chael Sonnen is controversial in any way says a hell of a lot more about you guys then is does me. ******* unreal how this man is overrated. He has struggled with much lesser fighters then the men listed.

I think it is pretty obvious you hate Sonnen when you actually think that Wanderlei, Shogun, Franklin and Matt Fecking Hamill will beat Sonnen.

First, relax. You're making yourself look like an arse getting as upset as you are. Second, I don't base my choices off of 'delusion'. Yes, Henderson could find Chael's chin. That's more than possible. But Dan could also get taken down and be entirely useless off of his back for three rounds. Jake Shields - Jake bloody Shields - ate a vicious H-Bomb and still managed to take Henderson down and control him with relative ease for four rounds. And I'm to believe that Chael Sonnen, a world class wrestler, could not do the same for three rounds? I stand by my original choice. Putting Henderson on his back for an entire fight is not impossible, as it's been done in the past by lesser grapplers than Sonnen.

You think Sonnen is overrated. I and others don't and won't. That's the beauty of opinion, but again, your blatant overreactions and the fact that you're legitimately getting riled up over something so trivial proves to me just how biased you are. I'm a massive Sonnen fan, but you'll note that even I admitted that he'd lose against and have trouble with certain fighters. Whereas you essentially believe he'd lose to pretty much everyone. And anytime someone says otherwise, you fly off at the handle and talk about how ill it makes you, and how delusional the rest of us must be. What's the point of that style of debate?

I think this, but you think that, and so I'm delusional and wrong... yeah, I'll be showing myself out.

I ain't even mad bro, this isn't that serious. But I think it's crazy that picking Hendo over Chael would be in any way shape or form a controversial pick. Seriously Hendo has a chance to win any fight he is in...except maybe vs Spider. But everyone else in the World can get put down. How is it a stretch to think that Hendo could beat Sonnen? That I can't wrap my head around. You specifically called me out on that matchup. Now the Wand call out I get. But Hendo? I think you are the one overreacting on that one.

Sonnen isn't some undefeated monster and unstoppable grappler. He can't put everyone down for the entire fight. I've seen him struggle to get and keep people down.

This just reeks of bias. I'm not a huge Chael fan either but suggesting that he wouldn't beat most of these guys is just plain ridiculous. You know very well that I can't stand Nick Diaz and think he's one of the most overrated fighters in the sport, but if you gave me a similar list of WW's odds are I would favor Diaz in most of those contests.

It's okay not to like a fighter, that's part of what this sport is about, but if you don't think Sonnen could beat the likes of Wanderlei, Griffin, Hamill and Philppou then I would respectfully request you reconsider your analysis without bias.

After seeing how dominantly Chael was able to implement his game plan over Yushin Okami and Nate Marquardt, and Silva in their first fight the former being a very strong grappler, the later having a solid enough base and strength that it means a lot to have been smothered the way he was makes me think Chael would out work most of the guys in this list, especially fighters like Wanderlei and Shogun who would gas pretty quickly beneath a guy with that kind of work ethic.

Chael Sonnen vs Chris Weidman
Chael Sonnen vs Vitor Belfort (Johnson was able to hold Vitor down until he gassed himself out, I see no reason Chael wouldn't be able to do the same minus the gassing)
Chael Sonnen vs Hector Lombard
Chael Sonnen vs Jacare
Chael Sonnen vs Luke Rockhold
Chael Sonnen vs Wanderlei
Chael Sonnen vs Costas Philippou
Chael Sonnen vs Forrest Griffin
Chael Sonnen vs Shogun
Chael Sonnen vs Hendo
Chael Sonnen vs Machida
Chael Sonnen vs Bader
Chael Sonnen vs Gustafsson (No idea where Gustaf's TDD is)
Chael Sonnen vs Mousasi
Chael Sonnen vs Feijao
Chael Sonnen vs Rashad
Chael Sonnen vs Glover
Chael Sonnen vs Te Huna
Chael Sonnen vs Matt Hamill
Chael Sonnen vs Rich Franklin

I love Rich Franklin. My absolute favorite fighter ever. Only Cain and Faber even come close to the level of fandom I have for Rich. But I'll be the first to admit, Sonnen would WRECK Franklin at this stage.

It goes well beyond not like Chael Sonnen. It's about watching him fight and not thinking he is that good really. In my honest opinion he is probably the 4th or 5th best MW in the World right now. But at LHW? I don't think he cracks the top 20 and I don't think I'm stretching by saying these things. I am pleased that just about everyone realized that Jacare would do him just as bad or worse then Maia did him. But I don't understand why people think he can just hold down these larger men for the entire fight. What have you guys seen that makes you think he can blanket these fighters? They are bigger, stronger and just better fighters then the men that Chael has done that to. Forget Chael's personality and how I feel about him. I feel he is extremely overrated as a fighter. Watching him fight, I have no idea how he gets the love he does as a fighter.
