Shame Sonnen can't make 170 I easily see that as a very successful season of TUF against GSP.
“I think Chael- from what I’ve seen and what I know- he’s the favorite. If you guys, if the world, if the bookmakers were able to see what’s going on in training camp- how he’s looking, how he’s performing- I think those odds would change really quick"
LOOOOL, that is a good one!
So Chael is looking very good in training, and Dolce thinks that because of that he will walk through Jones in the fight hahahaha.
Dolce should read a recent article by Bas Rutten, where he explains very clearly how training and actual fighting are 2 whole completely different worlds.
Chael may have an advantage in wrestling, so what? If Chael can takedown Jones, he will get submitted. If he keeps it standing, Jones is going to kill him.
Hmm seems a lot more tame and a lot less "derp" than the comments suggest. He starts by talking about weight cut and age; then moves into talking about how important the mental aspect of the fight is, combined with Chael's wrestling.
I don't agree with Dolce - I think the combination of lack of finishing power, weak defensive wrestling, and predictability makes him an easy match for Jones. But Dolce's comments are pretty tame and reasonable for in-camp talk.
It's nice to see th Ed Soares School of Saying Crazy Shit is doing well. Wonder when Dolce will get his diploma?
I know he's an experienced fighter and all but ....derp, much?
Okay Dolce. It seems like everytime he says something like this his guys loses one-sidely...
I totally buy what he's selling up until the article gets to "In regards to Chael's preperation for Jon Jones.." part. Then it is mostly yes-man bias. Anytime a trainer or teammate or the like start talking about their fighter and how he/she is going to win I tune out a little.
Sometimes when I read mike dolce opinions on fighter he is affiliated with I think your a dietitian shut up but then I think to myself he is a fan also and he is closer to alot of fighters then we are so he migyt know something
