Actually chael forced him to go with that approach since he went forward and close straight away

And Amdm, of course not this fight only, but it was more apparent in this fight. He rag dolled a world class wrestler. Makes it extremely apparent.

Funny how a lot of people are complaining about the stoppage even though Sonnen himself didn't seem to mind it.
sonnon never seems to complain about that stuff when he lost to silva and every wanted to petition the knee he said the reff has the final say and he is doing the same here. Still doesnt change the fact that it was a bad stoppage

I'm actually a little sad that Sonnen hinted at retirement. I'll miss the guy if he does.

I say it's Chael vs cain or GSp next, he will find some way to turn this lost into another title shot.

It was a little early, but Sonnen just stayed against the cage taking punishment without doing much to stop it. I hate when fighters do that. They're not out, but they just do minimal work to get out of a position knowing that the referee could step in any time. It's almost like they're accepting defeat.

Did you not see how fast that happened? Sonnen blocked the two elbows coming and that was it, over. Not even given the chance to do anything else, try to get up, try to move, nothing. Two shots, that didnt even rock him, ref stops it. Joke
