lmfao at Jacare beating Sonnen. I'm guessing you didn't see the Rockhold and Kennedy fights.


In the UFC (or any MMA org), you don't put #1 contenders against guys not even in the top 10 just because it'd be stylistically interesting. It's absurd beyond belief.

Maybe before Silva faces Chael, he should have to face Weidman to see if his wrestling has improved enough.

Like a few others have mentioned, it surprises me that there are people with the impression that Chael wouldn't be submitted by a high level BJJ practitioner like Palhares, or Maia. Especially Maia, who is high level enough where just being on the ground with him is ill-advisable.

I can certainly understand the belief that it would be difficult to take Chael down, but if the fight did get to the ground, I think anyone with solid BJJ would have a chance to submit Chael.

All of that being said, I think most people who are Silva fans want to see Chael fight someone with the potential to test his sub defense before he gets another shot at Silva.

A)Silva has actually BEATEN those wrestlers regardless of his holes in the game.

B)Chael has LOST to elite BJJ fighters

C)Anderson is the champion, the longest reigning champion in the UFC

D)Chael is not and never has been the champion
