I hate Sonnen like poison, but this is a walk for him. I'm betting everything I own (and by that I mean, everything my wife will let me bet) on Sonnen.

And I hate Sonnen, so if by some miracle Stann won, I'd be happy to see Sonnen twitching on the mat, so it's win win for me.

Fighting Chael is like fighting randy couture...you know exactly what his game plan is. It's not an easy task training for a guy like Sonnen, but I think that with Jacksons gameplanning and Stanns ability...he'll take it

it's not good betting on a fighter you hate. it's like an alcoholic father, he can be great craic sometimes but he'll always let you down.

i wouldn't look pass stann on this one. he is the ufc's new all-american hero, he's got a silver star, he's been on the TUF as a sort of roll model, hell he kind of looks like G.I.Joe too. there's a lot of eyes on him and i don't think he'll let them down. plus he has stopping power.
Sonnen on the other hand is coming back from a loss after more than a year and almost 2 since he won. plus he likes to go to the judges with a big list of unanimous decision's to his name. if he is to win he has to make it to the judges and make sure he doesn't get tagged. even if he makes it "how will the judges rule?"

i'm going to go with stann by TKO R2

Not wise dude, whilst Sonnen is a narlbag there is something about Stann. He is a tough boy, improving rapidly and he has some serious hero in him. I hope he wins and I know it wont be an easy fight for Sonnen. I would be reluctant to bet on the outcome of this fight but if I had to it would be Sonnen UD. always wiser not to bother the misses with your mma gambling.

I don't think Chael has upped his game or improved since he fought Marquardt and Okami.

When Chael fought Marquardt and Okami, both of them stood flat-footed right in front of Chael which (I think) made it much easier to take them down.

In Stann's last fight against Santiago he showed hes begun adding movement into his game -- giving people angles and being a mobile target. He looked a little like a bigger version of Frankie Edgar at times.

I think Stann's movement could give Chael problems. It won't be like when Chael fought Marquardt and Okami and they stood right in front of him making it easy to shoot in and take them down.

Stann hits harder than Chael too.

I think Stann'll win mostly due to Chael training under poor conditions at Team Quest -- Ed Herman and others abandoned Team Quest a long time ago and look like vastly improved fighters for doing so.

And mostly due to Chael not upping his game since 2009.

Brian Stann's footwork is not going to be anywhere near as good as Anderson Silva's though, and Chael managed to take him down countless times, with ease. Chael's wrestling is good enough to get anyone to the mat in the Middleweight division, probably in the Light Heavyweight division as well. Whether that'll be enough to be Brian Stann I don't know. I'm seriously torn about this fight. Big fan of both dudes, would love to see both guys get a shot at Anderson, and both guys have a great chance of winning this fight. The question is though, will Stann be able to land a big shot on Sonnen, or submit him when he's taken down? Those are the keys to the fight, because if he can't manage either of those, he's getting beaten up for 15 minutes.

Sprawl and brawl is the nifty new catch phrase of the day kids. When Brian lights him up chael's gonna look for a double leg on the ref.

Chael is top 3 skillwise at takedowns in the UFC, betting against Chael is dangerous. He is determined and pissed, it's going to take an extremely aggressive gameplan for Stann to beat Chael. His only chance is that he shoves Chael into the fence and Shane Carwin's him.

Stann will have about 1 minute in the beginning of each rd to try and land a bomb. After that he's going down and will stay there.
