Oh, I got your "point" alright, but you seemed to have missed mine.

Chael is not some juggernaught (should've used that instead of Magneto, come to think of it); he's a wrestler, and a one-trick pony at that.

If Stann can avoid the TD's, he has a better-than-average chance of winning.

IMO, a win for Stann won't indicate any kind of devine intervention; it will probably just mean a good puncher caught a good wrestler.

I voted yes because he has a chance of TKO'ing Chael, he packs some crazy power.

That said, i doubt he wins unless he has some sick triangles up in his sleeve which i somehow doubt.

He didn't trash talk Marquardt, Okami, or Miller either. Stann is a respectable American hero, Chael probably genuinely respects him.

But that won't stop him from smashing him.
yeah but he is not just not talking trash he has said that he doesnt want to fight the guy. He said he even broke the unspoken ruel and called brian to talk to him about the fight.

He has a punchers chance like everyone but I still voted no, I think Chael's wrestling is too dominant.

This poll needs a "lolllllll no" option.

Stann's TD is suspect even against guys who aren't super wrestlers, how is he going to keep it standing against Sonnen? Simply, he isn't. Add in the fact that Sonnen actually has a decent chin reducing the chance of a one shot TKO/KO from slim to none and I can't imagine Sonnen losing.

Would love to be wrong, I think Sonnen is a gigantic douche hammer but I just can't see it. Ever. This would be an upset on par with GSP-Serra I if Stann won this as far as I'm concerned.

Got a decent shot, but Chael's got an iron chin, relentless wrestling and his ground n pound is the best in the division by far.

This is gonna be a re-run of the Marquardt fight, Stann will crack him, bust him open but Chael's gonna drag it to the ground relentlessly and pound on Stann for three rounds.

Iron chin? Who exactly has hit this guy that has proven this? Chael sonnen is so one dimensional it's not even funny. I hear many people saying that "he's never been ko'd before"...well there is a first time for everything and Stann is the guy to do it.

Yes, he does.

Actually he has more than a chance.

Even if Sonnen takes him down, i see him being able to get up.
Stann is one of the strongest MWs out there.

BELIEVE!

Nate Marquardt drilled him with a flying knee right on the chin.

Maybe you should go watch the fight.
