Don't see a reason Rampage would be any different.
I'm pretty sure he lost the last round of the Silva fight.

Chael better be willing to fight at 205; he walks around at 220+.

The only reason people keep talking about why there's too much of a size difference in the MW division for GSP to move up is because the Top 10 in the division are just mediocre LHWs who are draining themselves to make 185.

Never really thought about it like that, but now you mention it -

Anderson - a monster MW, can easily compete at LHW but choses not to

Vitor - started as a Heavyweight

Bisping - was a LHW most of his career

Wanderlai - same as Bisping

Stann - was a LHW until his last fight

Chael - was a LHW now a monster middleweight


The only elite MW's who i dont believe have been in different weight classes are Okami and Demian. Nate has now moved down (somehow).

Okami actually started at 170/175 IIRC. Which is crazy because he's basically the biggest 185lber there is right now.

I really hope whoever chael gets as an opponent destroys him. He is actually my most hated fighter in the UFC. Honestly Dana please give him Shogun, Thiago Silva or Rampage someone who will just destroy him.

If you want someone to destroy Sonnen give him Maia or Jacare.

Shogun is a small LHW and couldnt handle Sonnen's wrestling. Silva is banned i believe and Rampage is very static i also think Sonnen would be able to get him down.

Also just curious since you are new why do you Sonnen ?

Hmmm I dont no I think if he talked alot of trash about Shogun and got him under his skin we could see the old pride Shogun.
Is he i didnt no I new there was something happening with Silvas urine sample.
Yeah a suppose Rampage hasnt been very impressive lately.

Anderson Silva's my favourite fighter haha that might tell you a lot. No I just feel that he's a very direspectfull fighter and talks far to much trash

If Sonnen was more of a humble guy I would be a big fan he's a grinding tough wrestler who always keeps busy but his attitude just sucks lol
