There was a time when this fight would have been a no brainer for me in Rashad's favor, but I just don't think he cares anymore.

I actually think Chael is going to pull of the submission here.

Voted Chael because I couldn't vote "Who cares?".

Meh. Chael via UD. Couldn't be less excited about a fight if I tried.

does Chael remind anyone of an Germany American Nazi ?! I mean i swear to god I can Imagine him being hitler and give a speech to the 4th reich lol I hope but if the Rashad that showed up against Rampage Jackson or Tito Ortiz shows up I don`t see his chances being too good unless he has really improved with changing his training camp .. this probably the fight I am most looking forward too on the main card though lol

How do you make a connection between a guy who makes funny comments about wanting to beat people up to one of the most evil men to ever live who tried to wipe out an entire race.
I think it's safe to say its just you.....

As a Chael fan, I find this matchup very tough for him. There's no secrets with Sonnen. He'll try to take you down and pressure you on the feet. Rashad's wrestling in no slouch, and if he focuses his entire camp on TDD and throwing hooks on the feet as Sonnen comes in, I think he can get the KO.

That's tough to admit. Sonnen is a tough SOB, but I think Rashad just matches up too badly for him here.

The initial thought I have when I see the matchup is Rashad should wreck him. Then I remember that the Rashad that would wreck Sonnen doesn't exist anymore and he is now a gun shy mediocre fighter with poor cardio and no gameplan.

It is a toss up because even bad Rashad still has the skills to not let Sonnen do whatever he wants. The fight will likely be awful.
