    Something like 14-8, but just about all of his wins are against cans and he lost every fight against decent guys. Losses to Forrest Griffin, Trevor Prangley, Babalu, Terry Martin, Jeremy Horn 3x, and all by 1st or 2nd round stoppage.

    Much better at MW, where he's 11-4 or so and 2 of those losses are Anderson.

    Obvious cash grab by the UFC is obvious.

    Hendo and Chael wouldn't fight unless one of them had the title. Thats the only way I see that one happening. And neither of them will beat Jones so might as well to that one to bed.

    I want what he's smoking...

    Machdia makes Cheal look like a dummy...

    He has the TDD to deal with Chael and the spacing to make it difficult for Sonnen to even close to him in the first place.

    He picks Sonnen apart as he rushes in.

    I actually think he would do better than most think at 205. This coming from someone who cant stand Sonnen...

    Shogun has horrible TDD....

    Mousasi has bad TDD

    Hendo... see shields fight

    Lil Nog has good BJJ, but Cheal may have finally cleared up his sub defense. He could pull off a UD like Bader or Davis did, however uneventful it would be.

    Glover and Goose's wresting is still in question. A fight with Chael would certainly test it.

    Davis, Bader, and Mo could all beat Chael... they have the wrestling... but if they came in with a bad gameplan could still end up on their back. They would have to wrestle Chael, not just go for the KO and look to stop his TD's.

    Rampage. With how bad his TDD was against Glover, I think Chael would easily run through him, if he showed up the same way.

    I still see Jones, Machida, and Evans easily beating Sonnen and making it look easy... but those are the top3 guys...

    i agree. chael is a great wrestler no doubt, but he's in another world at 205. I think bader, Davis, lil nog walk though chael handily.

    After this loss I see commentary role maybe a vanity fight with vitor, or even go pro wrasslen

    I really hate to say this but the only guy I see Chael beating at the top of the205 division is the legend Dan Henderson. If Dan didn't catch him in the first or second I could see Chael tiring Dan out and winning a decision. Everyone else would be to physical for him, IMO.
