    I was thinking about this, if Fury doesn't want wrestling does that mean ju-jitsu is still allowed? Cain could just do a jj takedown and play jj on top only? Or is Fury saying he wants only standup.

    Somebody needs to make a Sonnen thread where we do not mention him just to balance it out.

    I'll take the blame for that one, my fault.

    I think he could be champ in the UFC. The thing about him is, that due to his all in wrestling style, he looks dominant when he wins, and awful when he loses. He can beat Anderson Silva, and call me crazy but I am not sure if he could beat Jon Jones or not. He immediately got put on the defensive against Bones, and we never got to see if he could take Bones down. If he could take Bones down, then who knows. All that fight proved to me is that Bones is capable of taking Sonnen down. To me it was like two knockout artists facing off, and one KOing the other in the first minute. It proves the winner can beat the loser, but it doesn't prove the loser can't beat the winner. If Sonnen can take Bones down, he probably wins 10%-15% of their fights. I think Sonnen would handle the guy Bones is defending the title against. Hell I'll go as far as to say that if he can beat Rashad then he is the 2nd best wrestling based LHW in the world.

He bumped up a weight class because he probably wasn't getting another shot at Anderson for years if ever. He could promote the crap out of a fight against lesser fighters, and people would still pay to see him, but he wants the best he can get (with the exception of Wanderlei). The man likes his cash, but he wants to have some gold.
    Welp, if he wants a title he better give Bellator a call.

    Fury on the other hand will never step into the Octagon. Even if the UFC offered him millions of dollars he would not fight Cain.
    TO that point if Dana said "Chael, we have a huge payday for you. Main event. MGM, against SASQUATCH..."
    Chael's reaction wouldl be "I get a cut of the PPV for this right?"

    Same organization, same sport, and I have no doubt that he would fight either of those guys if the UFC made the fight.
