Chael loses to guys he cannot take down. This will be another one of those losses. Rashad has KO power, is faster and had the TDD to keep it standing. He just fought with no balls the last few fights, hopefully that changes.

Jon Jones' elbows made Chael squeal like a little Japanese school girl.

True, not sure how I forgot about that. Then again who has tasted JBJ's elbows and managed to do anything afterwards? His shot on Vera still makes my skin crawl.

ha ha, nah, I didn't mean it as a cheap shot at Chael (well, actually I kinda did) because Sonnen has proven to be very tough in the octagon throughout most of his career, he does have a good chin and keeps trucking forward no matter what. And yea, Jons elbows can turn tough men into cowards. They are disgusting.

I don't think 'Shad has the power to really trouble Sonnen. This could be a similar affair to the Bisping/Sonnen fight. Back and forth grappling/striking exchanges and scrambling from both guys in a closely contested bout.

Win or lose I still don't have that much interest in watching Chael beat Wandy down.

The only thing somewhat interesting about that match up is that the TUF series should be good if I bother to watch it...

Matt Hamill still managed to beat him after the elbows?

Guys! I have a few facts that will make this fight super interesting again!

Chael has the most MW TDs in UFC history and Rashad has the most LHW TDs in UFC history!

You hyped now?

I hope Chael comes in super ripped for this fight, in that case this is going to be a awesome fight. Chael can be brutal when his super fit, otherwise i see this fight slightly boring but with Chael winning it anyway.

I really hope he does destroy Reshad just so i can here some epic speech calling Silva or Machida out
