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.
