How do you see the fight going? You know how Sonnen fights, he bull rushes you immediately and goes for the TD. I don't see this fight going any differently than when he fought Shogun. He will rush Wanderlei fast and hard, throw him on his back without difficulty, and GnP/control Wanderlei either to a finish or decision.

It's actually one of the easiest fights to call, IMO, other than Wanderlei landing a shot the 5-10 seconds the fight stays standing at the start of each round, I see no way he can win (and I'm a huge Wanderlei fan).

I think Wands tdd is quite a bit better than shoguns so I could see Silva having some moments the problem is if he hurts chael and rushes in Chael is going full desperate take down mode and will get him down and survive.

My money is on Sonnen as well. I'm predicting this will be Wandy's last fight.


1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

I agree with what you say will be Chael's gameplan. However, Wandy has a better defensive guard and better sub defense than Shogun. I truly believe there is zero chance Chael finishes him, and that Wandy will either catch him with a big knee or in a triangle. Chael lacks the heart anymore imo to be in a long, grueling fight.

I'm sorry mate but Brock isn't coming back, not even on a TUF comeback season.

Never will I ever be fake, never will I follow
