Would like Chael to win, but in honesty I'm not really that bothered.

I would think it's just the opposite. If chael loses it will fire up wandy fans with the (false) hope that he has a chance.

I don't like this fight because I don't want either fighter to lose but I think it's going to be better than most people think. Like FOTY better.

Chael is going to take an epic beating, ... for a while, but Rashad will gas before he can finish him and then....

I think the biggest surprise for Rashad is going to be the bombs that Chael can take and not be fazed by. Chael has been hit by some serious guys and never really been in any danger. Hell the only thing I have even seen him react to was a knee to the solar plex delivered by Anderson Silva himself.

Not understanding why people are so meh about this fight? I'm not foaming at the mouth waiting in anticipation. But I don't understand why so many bash this fight and say how much it doesn't matter?

Chael wins and he proves he is a top dog that was just beat by the 2 best in title fights.

Rashad wins it perhaps gets him motor running again.

Id expect Rashad Evans to win the fight but Sonnen could out work Rashad by say continously taking him down and GnP.

Think it's the Rashad Evans factor. I really struggle to get excited for a fight he is in, even if he is fighting Sonnen. Rashad has the ability to really stink the place up, win or lose.

I agree. And with them being "friends" "TV partners" it could even be worse with a bunch of clinching into the cage.

I'm just glad it is the Co-Main on a pretty nice card. If it was a 5 round FOX1 Main Event I would be a little more meh about it.

I guess I can see it, I just thought we had more Sonnen and Rashad fans in here. I'd be a lot more pumped if they weren't friends. If Rashad goes out there and loses handily, he should think about retirement. He doesn't seem to have near the passion he once had. Maybe he is too "thick" but I don't understand why he hasn't seriously looked into 185 yet. He'd lose to Machida and Weidman for sure. But he has a lot of winnable fights down there. Bisping rematch, Tim Kennedy, Mousasi, Rockhold.

I'm also pretty confused why everyone is so vocal on how horrible this fight is. I'm actually pretty excited to see at least the wrestling aspect of it.

Rashad has great TDD defense and if you can get him down, it's usually not for long.

Chael is known for his relentless pace and never giving up on his TD game plan.

I think Rashad has more tools on his feet, so it will be interesting to see if the ground comes into play.

It would make sense to me if Rashad took a page out of Bones book and went on the wrestling offense against Chael right away. Chael can't take you down if he's on his own back.
