I actually see this as quite a bad matchup for Sonnen ... and I LOVE Sonnen. I honestly think Stann's TDD has improves leaps and bounds since the Davis/Soszynski fights - and Sonnen is gonna have a very hard time taking him down if he doesn't set his shots up correctly, like he lacked to do against Silva.

If he doesn't get this fight to the ground, I honestly see him getting KO'd.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

This is gonna be one of Sonnen's biggest challenges ever.

He is a smart man and i don't think he wants to do a very aggressive trash-talk in this case, or people will jump all over him.
Especially if he loses.
He would look 10x worse than on a normal basis.

As far as the fight goes...i don;t think Stann has the necessarry wrestling skills to stop Sonnen from taking him down andpulling off a decision victory.

Stann's last loss was against a powerful wrestler - Davis.

I also don't think he has the BJJ skills needed to sub Sonnen from the bottom.

BUT...training at Jackson's MMA, with a lot of experienced wrestlers should raise his confidence.

Stann has won via triangle before, so Sonnen could be in trouble ;p

Talking

Good points Limba, I still see Sonnen having some trouble. Stann is a pretty strong MW. His last loss was to Davis, a strong LHW. I think even if Sonnen does get him down, Stann gets back up.

And I don't care how smart Sonnen is, his track record proves that he makes bad choices, trash talking a Marine would be no different. I actually look forward to it.

Business standpoint, and fight standpoint, Lyoto/Sonnen made much more sense. Sonnen could do the whole "Karate kid" trolling, and the fight has more storylines in style. Surprising bad matchup made by the UFC.

He has been beaten by great wrestlers before e.g. Phil Davis, but that was at 205 where he was small. How he fares against great Wrestlers his own size remains to be seen. I think Chael probably wins by LnP.

Shows how much the UFC brass loves Sonnen, give him a gift wrapped win like this. Stann has no chance in hell here, even if he lands heavy Sonnen actually has a half decent chin. 30-27 UD Sonnen, can't imagine anything else.
