Denial denial denial... all of yous aying Chael doesn't deserve a title shot know nothing about fighting. In close and exciting fights rematches happen all the time in mma and boxing, Chael is the one man that stands a chance against Silva. Blah blah blah he's a cheater and he lost... I've heard it a million times, there is no bigger fight right now than Sonnen vs. Silva 2, period. You want to deny that then you have no idea what you are talking about.
And I love all the neg rep I'm getting for supporting a rematch, all of you can't handle the idea of the one man who poses a challenge to Silva fighting him again. Go ahead, neg rep me, I couldn't care less. So Chael is a scumbag, I forgot this was ultimate nice guy championship. This is the biggest fight possibly ever in the UFC and you are all saying it shouldn't happen, get a freaking grip you clowns.
As your obviously a Sonnen fan I'll ask you...
Was the fight a close exciting fight or a lesson in pillowfist domination? It's just domination and close are at other ends of the spectrum...
Granted he put up the biggest challenge that I can remember against Silva, however...
He didn't lose via decision, he lost via submission, even the golden boy of the UFC GSP had to fight Kos and Hughes before he got his rematch with Serra.
I think rematches need to happen but not when someone finishes the fight. Sonnen needs to get to the back of the line end of story fight at least one more person before he gets a title shot.
As for 'bigger fights' in the ufc
1 Jones vs Silva
2 Silva vs GSP
3 Aldo vs Edgar
4 Machida vs Jones
5 Jones vs Evans
There is 5 and I'm on facebook while watching a film so that's just off the top of my head.
I'd also like to see maybe Sonnen vs Hendo for the chance to fight Silva.
Also stop crying about neg rep it happens to people less deserving than you.
