I think that A.Silva is the most remarkable martial artist to ever step foot in a ring or a cage, but Sonnen is incredibly entertaining. One of the reasons that this rematch is so interesting is because you have the most incredible guys to ever fight in the octagon fighting the guy that has proven to be one of the most entertaining personalities outside of the cage in the history of mma. If Silva had Sonnens personality, he would have become a bigger star then the iceman and GSP combined.

That's exactly why Dana wouldn't do it he wouldn't want Sonnen to lose before a HUGE rematch with Silva, and Sonnen probably wouldn't take it, as he shouldnt.

There isn't any thing imaginary going on here.

In actual reality, Sonnen loses to PH and Maia 9/10

Chael Sonnen will never become a UFC champion any ways. His entire life he has always fell short of earning first place. It's a prime example of karma. He's a cheater, a compulsive liar and has committed acts of fraud outside of MMA. Karma being karma he will NEVER become a UFC champion and will get what's coming to him soon enough. This fame, hype and attention is all coming to an end very soon, so enjoy it whilst it lasts Sonnen fans.

It would be awsome. Hopefully Paul harris doesn't have anymore brainfarts and keeps winning, then they won't be able to deny him the matchup forever.

Sonnen will for sure fight Silva again tho even if he doesn't deserve it yet. He talks crap and thats what alot of people like so he will get the shot.

Lol how exactly is palharris supposed to beat Chael?? Its very unlikely he will get a triangle with those short legs and its very unlikely he will get a leg lock. If Chael wants to keep it standing he can then definitely do that. I see no reason anyone should think PH takes this fight unless its by a 1 out of a 1000 leg lock.

Maia wont surprise Chael like he did the first time so i certainly dont see him winning again either.

How is it very unlikely PH secures a leg lock? If the fight hits the ground for more than 20 seconds, there's a high probability Harris rips a limb off.

Because Sonnen submits Stann, are we supposed to just assume that he has fixed the MASSIVE holes in his submission defense now?

Both Maia and PH would make him tap with ease on the ground.

You mean that version of Filho who was seeing ghosts and demons in the cage with him and didn't know what day of the week it was.

That version of Paulo Filho who Chael embarrassingly failed to finish over a span of three rounds.

yep the same, it doesnt matter how fiho was it showed that sonnen learned from the first fight and and sprawled and brawled and dominated. the same thing would happen to maia and harris, and silva is gonna lose on superbowl weekend I believe which will probably cause most of mmaforum members to quit.
