Chael Sonnen Open to Fights at 205; Wanted Rampage at UFC 130

Quote:
If anyone has ever doubted Chael Sonnen’s sincerity when he says he’ll fight anyone, look no further than a request the middleweight contender made just a couple of months ago.

While Sonnen has been out of action since last August dealing with the fallout from a suspension stemming from a failed drug test at UFC 117, as well as time spent in the courtroom after being charged with Federal money laundering, the Oregonian has always had his eyes on the fight game.

“The thing about Chael is when he does all these interviews, and he sounds crazy when he says ‘I’ll fight any man God ever created.’ He’s telling the truth,” Sonnen’s manager, Mike Roberts of MMA Inc., told MMAWeekly Radio recently.

The proof of Sonnen’s willingness to fight anybody: when Thiago Silva was first pulled from his scheduled bout against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 130 in late May, it was Sonnen who immediately asked his manager to get him into that spot.

“When Rampage’s initial opponent went down before all this fiasco was going on, before Hamill stepped in to take the fight, when that went down I was with Chael and he was like ‘I’d love to fight Rampage.’ And I was like, ‘but you’re at 185-pounder’ and he was like, ‘I’d fight him in a heartbeat,’” Roberts revealed.

Sonnen actually spent a part of his career fighting at 205 pounds, and even told his management that if current UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva decided to test the waters at light heavyweight again, he’d be just as happy to have their rematch at that weight.

“Fighting big fights at 205 would not be a problem for him,” Roberts commented.

Sonnen’s next fight will more than likely keep him in the middleweight division, but when super fights at different weight classes are mentioned in the future, consider Chael Sonnen on the list of fighters who would accept the challenge.

“(Chael said) whoever they think is the toughest guy, that’s the guy I want,” Roberts said.

Before any super fights come up, however, Sonnen is currently focused on fixing things with the Nevada State Athletic Commission so he can get back to the business of fighting

Thats why Chael is "The Worlds Greatest Fighter"

Before any super fights come up, Chael should probably have a title, or at least a better UFC record than 4-4.

At any rate, I bet Sonnen is the same size or bigger than Matt Hamill. Not sure who I'd pick to win that fight, Hamill is a stud and he could probably be fighting at 185. No way Sonnen would beat Rampage though, I'd pick Rampage by submission lol

There's is nothing I would like to see more than rampage getting the crap beaten out of him for 3 rounds. He won't be able stop chaels take downs and he certainly won't be submitting him like Andy did. As poor as sonnens record is with losses due to submission, I don't see rampage submitting... His only chance will be standing and to go for the knockout, but once he gets taken down he will just get tooled on his back for 3 rounds. Will be similar to rashad v rampage and sonnen is a way better wrestler. He is world class.

Awaits rampage fan boys to start there defense

He might have a chance if he is juiced out of his mind again like he has been on his entire UFC run. Rampage would dominate him otherwise That is a big weight difference Rampage is as strong as most HWs.

It would look a lot like the Rampage v Rashad fight, except Rampage would spend even longer on his back, he wouldnt be getting up to his feet, and he'd have even less time to land one of his bombs.

Chael is a horrible matchup for anyone who is not a world class wrestler like himself, or someone who doesnt have the BJJ to submit him.

Rampage falls perfectly into that catagory.

You mean, Chael vs. Forrest II.



He already fought Forrest and surprise... he lost by triangle choke lmfao.



He'd probably take the rematch though.

Because he has a flaw which will make him lose alot of fights but he also has a skill that will make him dangerous in any fight WORLD CLASS WRESTLING , its like a coin flip with him can you get the submission before the fight ends and goes to judges.He is also hilarious and can beat anyone in the division an no one can stop his takedown at MW i guarantee that but he also can lose to alot of the guys also because his submission defence is that of a novice.

If it would be so easy for Chael to put Rampage on his back, why couldn't Henderson do the same? Just because Chael did it to Silva easier than Henderson did?
