I think Chael Sonnen will win this.

Brain Stann is a great striker but he always seems to have trouble against wrestler. And Chael Sonnen in this case is a stright out wrestler.

Chael. His wrestling is far too good for Brian to stuff every attempt (hell, I don't really see him stuffing one). I also cannot see Stann subbing Chael, so it's a UD for Sonnen.

I guarantee that Stann has been training triangle chokes for the last month.

Chael will take the decision I think. His wrestling is second to none in the MW division and I'm not sure how much Stann's defensive wrestling has improved since he lost against Davis. So I'm looking at it like it's wrestler versus striker and wrestlers always win that matchup.

yeah that's what everybody says except me, Brian and some guys at Jackson MMA.

That's the beauty of it. Other than one guy, really everyone I've fought over the last three years has been someone who wants to take me down, so I didn't just start training my takedown defense for this particular fight. I've been really focusing on wrestling a lot for a long time now.

Luckily I don't have to master the entire sport. There are certain techniques and certain things about wrestling that I do need to master, and I think I've gotten very good at those. I train with world-class guys at the gym every day and they're all struggling to take me down, so I believe that I will challenge Chael's takedowns moreso than anybody he's fought in the last four or five years.
Stann by KO. then we'll all be treated to months of "Stann's good but he has no chance against SilVa"

I'm notoriously rooting for every challenger to the MW title. Can't find a bigger underdog than whoever Silva is fighting.

Gotta take Stann in this one, Sonnen is suffocating but Stann is pure power and full steam going into this fight, I think he'll crack Sonnen hard at some point and take full advantage of it.

Timing will probably be a big issue for Chael early on with such a long layoff. Stann should be aggressive early and hope to catch him before he gets acclimated to the speed of an actual fight again.
