He's only saying that because Demian is clearly the easier match up for Anderson. It's so obvious, you'd think he'd be more subtle about it.

Sonnen against Maia for the #1 contender spot. Are you shitting me? That's several steps down for Sonnen and a complete waste of a fight, he just dominated the guy who ruined Maia, what the hell's the point of him fighting Maia? What's next, Chris Leben fights Andy Wang and the winner gets Silva? Jesus.

I dislike Sonnen quite a bit, but no-one deserves the shot more than he does. Its true Maia did tool him badly and would prolly do it again in rematch, but then again Maia got wrecked fast by Nate who on the other hand lost vs. Sonnen and Silva.

Basically ditch the damn mma math, let Sonnen get next shot as he deserves it and perhaps have Maia fight loser of Vitor vs. Silva while Sonnen fights the winner. If Maia wins that fight then he can have the title shot.

I mean, Chael (if he's the #1 contender) does need a fight in the meantime. The fight between Vitor and Anderson isn't until April.

And, frankly, I'd like to see a rematch. Both guys would be interesting fights for Anderson (though Anderson will be a heavy favorite either way).

If Chael can beat Maia, he makes himself that much better as an opponent. If Maia can finish Sonnen, it'll mean less, but at least he'll have another highlight reel submission going into the fight with Anderson, as opposed to coming off of a decision.

Anderson's going to be a heavy favorite either way. Might as well build some hype for whoever his opponent is.

Chael did suprise the hell out of me but I don't think he should fight anderson when there is so much better fights for anderson at 205. If he beats vitor, and RUA wins, I would love to see Anderson vs Rua Evans,Rampage. As much as I like andreson I want to see a fight where he is not the heavily favorite to win. Vitor is possible the guy to beat him but we will see.

If Maia wins though does anyone see him as a top contender? I mean he has one win over a mid teir fighter since getting a clobbering from Nate. So then Maia needs another fight, well by then Marquardt will probably have one win to his name so then do we rematch Nate and Maia? Round and round the mulberry bush the monkey chased the weasel.

don't even see maia as a contender. WOuld love to see Nate vs Chael 2 because that was a disgrace for nate. Maybe he came in over confident or something but he looked like an amateur.

I am not sure why you want to see a rematch it would not go any different unless Nate managed a flash knock out at the beginning of a round. Nate knew what to expect, everyone knew what Sonnen was gonna be going for. Nate just had no answer he could not stop the TD and he was unable to build much of an offense of his back.

If Maia submits Sonnen he's 7-1 in the UFC with a win over a top contender and a good stylistic matchup with the champ.

Frankly, I think they'd both get killed for the same reason: insufficient standup.

But I feel that way about pretty much everyone in the division right now.
