    No disrespect to Chris Weidman, I think that MAYBE he could have a small chance to beat the spider too.

    Dominating to me is a 10-8 round.

    I couldn't care less about a 3rd fight between Silva and Sonnen. Silva is an old guy, have him fight opponents that are atleast somewhat relevant. 3rd fight against Sonnen won't offer anything new to viewers.

    LOL that pretty much sums up my thoughts after reading his post as well.

    VERY comfortable. Mostly because, "Hey it's just a sig bet who cares?". But also because Sonnen hasn't won a LHW fight in what, 10 years? And never against somebody with the skill set of Shogun. It's funny, 5 years ago if somebody had said that Shogun would be the underdog in a fight against Sonnen, people would have lost their fuckin minds. I'm talkin pitchforks and torches. But in that time Sonnen has beaten Nate Marquardt, Yushin Okami, Brian Stann and Micheal Bisping. How that makes him a favorite over Shogun I'll never no.

    And for the record, I'd take Brandon Vera over Chael Sonnen as well.

    There has never been a trilogy fight worth a fuck where one of the fighters had already won 2 bouts over the other. Unless the principles are vying for contention--and sonnen is clearly not--they're a stupid idea that's based more on hype than significance.

    utter meh.

    Because the second fight wasn't close. sonnen never had Silva in any danger, and got exposed and destroyed in the second round. Realistically, unless you're a total mark for chael, you can't even call the first fight a dominating performance, because he got finished in it. If there were any point in the first fight where Silva was close to being finished, I'd give the "dominating" hyperbole a little more credit...but it's funny how many people talk smack about Fitch and Sheilds being soooooo boring...sonnen is the exact same fighter--without Jake's submission grappling--who just talks more shit between fights. Fitch's bout with Erik Silva is more exciting than any performance chael has had in his entire career.
