    Sonnen's making a good move calling out Wandy. He's in a very tough position in his career but is picking a fight that is appealing to him for two reasons;
    1. There's some beef there already, and legitimate or not, both fighters are big names and popular (in different ways) with fans.
    2. Stylistically it makes a lot of sense for Sonnen to fight a guy with a wild boxing style, who is susceptible to being taken down against strong wrestlers (not that Wand has bad takedown defence though).

    The negatives that would of came from Chael engaging in any sort of street fight would of been immense.
    Don't forget the whole injury part. I don't like the whole macho street fight crap either, but if somebody wants to go that route then they should realize Wandy couldn't even fight.

    YEAH!!! Kevo, you're in the wrong here, IMO...What would be the point of him even saying anything to Wandy who was, like, a fight away from being cut from the UFC?

    He had bigger fish to fry and there's no point starting some random beef with someone who isn't even a contender...

    Sonnen will absolutely MAUL Wandy, and I will enjoy every minute. If you're fighting the champs why would you use a fight to fight Wand? Now that he won't be fighting for a title soon, he might as well fight Wand. I very seriously doubt that Chael is at all scared of Wand.

    I don't see how the incident is a big deal at all. Sonnen didn't feel like getting into an argument so he just kept quiet. But since it was videotaped, it turned into a big deal. And now Sonnen is using that to promote a fight he didn't really care about before.
    I was joking but the disrespect thing is in reference to Sonnen calling Brazilians thugs and the murder part is about simplejack mentioning murder.

    no he did what a true man does he knew his place and knows you can't go around hitting people at work
