I agree with that. As long as you agree he was also 30 seconds away from death. Jones was going to keep putting those elbows down until his skull was caved in. The ref saved his life.

Yeah.
Chael would run through Wanderlei.

Make this fight! It's really the most compelling fight out there for Chael at any weight class. Either Wand or Machida, just because of past trash talking. May as well let Chael carry on his shtick. If I were the UFC, I'm putting Sonnen vs. Wanderlei on the main event of a Fox card (or Teixiera/Rampage slot in terms of that it's not technically the last fight, but it's the real main event).

Most people seem to think the fight will be a beatdown one way or the other. I'm of the belief that this is actually a pretty damn competitive match-up. Sonnen doesnt punch so hard so Wandys chin should hold out, and his ground game is excellent, especially when it comes to getting back on his feet.

Then we have Sonnen with the relentless pressure and awesome takedowns.

They really need to make this fight. It'll be a barn burner in my opinion.

If God, sorry, Wandy beats Chael then does he get a title shot? Would be amazing to see him in the main event. Not sure how he beats JBJ though.

chael just wants another shot at making money. That's about it.

In his fight against Jones he didn't fight. He just cashed in.

When somebody like Wanderlei Silva struggles so much through language barrier to deliver a message in your face, it means the shit got real. Sonnen has been warned. War Wand.

The verb "to struggle" is up there and we all know what Wand was trying to say by now, so the conclusion remains: Sh!t got real.

To be honest, the only reason I understand is because ive seen the video before and read the subtitles. But seriously? If I was in a moving car with Wandy, without the aid of subtitles, Im not sure I would understand the vast majority. His line about losing teeth is a garbled mess. Im totally with him up to the bit where he talks about the Nogs... but after that, we are in confused territory.

Trust me, im not some Sonnen apologist. I enjoy ribbing Sonnen more then any other fighter. But on this occasion, if im totally honest, he has a point.
