Just sucks that he was so bad off his back. I really thought Nate would be able to stuff the TD's. Ohwell dudes at the best camp in the world imo and all he's gotta do is work on his gaurd.

Nate will be back it just sucks that he's probably not gonna get a shot at Silva because of this loss. Silva Sonnen does seem interesting now though. Silva's subs arent on the level of Maia or Paulo so he could grind out a decision. Dude is damn boring to watch though, he out Guidad, Guida.

Congrats to Chael though the dude is tough and took the win the best way he could.
That fight was awesome. No way did Chael put on a boring fight. He was constantly putting the pressure on Nate, throwing elbows and punches at every opportunity. His wrestling was fun to watch and his submission escapes made this the clear winner for FOTN.

I'm a big fan of Chael inside the ring. Outside, I don't really care for him. There is a good chance the stuff he says doesn't reflect his true character, and like Rogan mentioned: Chael is a smart dude and knows that liked or not, any talk about him is good talk.

Sorry i just found that he was afraid to mount anykind of offense that involved moving his arms more than a few inches away from Nate. He never really tried to pass he never bothered trying to mount and yeah I just find him very bland myself. Nothing against him personally and I respect him as a fighter. He does what works for him. The style just doesn't suit me. Nothing against Chael though he's genuinely passionate fighter.

It really highlights just what complete noobs we all are, following a sport that's a complete noob!

None of us called this fight. Nobody. Thats god damn shameful. We all suck.

I did enjoy the beating though. Nate was so confident he was going to crush him... lol.
