"A lot of people credit the weight cut, which is something that needed to happen. But the weight cut really happened at the same time that I really began to become well rounded and really focus on a lot of wrestling.
"My jiu-jitsu is a lot better than people realize. The limiting factor was really my wrestling, and I focused a lot on that - very hard - in the last two camps. I think it's going to take another two years. I'm still getting better. There are still things for me to learn. It's encouraging for me knowing that I'm only going to fight top guys now. I'm excited for the future."

I love the way everyone just dismisses the jarhead. After he knocks chael out the same ex spurts will be making "I knew Sonnen was over rated" and "wrestling is dead" threads.

This Joey Odessa guy seems a bit off. He first made JDS the -125 favorite when most bookies had Cain around -150. Now he opens Sonnen -215 when everywhere I've checked is Sonnen -250.

Anyone now where this guy is from?

Stann had better work a lot off of his back for this fight. That dramatically improve his TDD. If he can keep this fight off the ground he may actually have a decent shot at winning this fight.

I love Chael to death, but do NOT sleep on Stann. I might even put some down on him 'cause he's a monster and can DEFINITELY catch Sonnen, drop him and finish him.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

I am curious how the Athletic Commission and the UFC will deal with Chael and his testosterone...ie will they allow him to take his injections? I know it's medical and all, but it still seems like an advantage to me.

Chael is going to walk through him.

his wrestling is still garbage, he is nothing more then a striker.
