    Gary Bettman is pretty insulting to hockey fans. Its less what he says, and more that he keeps breathing though.

    Sonnen has the greatest beat down of the greatest fighter on the planet, i know thats not a title but in this case its gotta stand for something if we are going to consider stuff that has happened outside of the LHW division
    I'm sure Sonnen's performance in the first fight and again in the first round of the following fight are a substantial factor.

    DC is different from the usual guy coming in or dropping down. Zuffa owns Strikeforce and he's coming here anyway. The UFC was also sending a fighter to fight him. He's more of an insider than an outsider.

    The Silva/Bonnar fight illustrated how damaging that knee can be. The punches were the last of Sonnen's worries. I think he never recovered from that knee.

    After the knee.

    I just don't know how he is going to deal with the punishment of Jones when he can't take him down. Look how erratic he got when Silva stopped his takedowns...now factor in that Jones is a way better wrestler than Silva...Chael be totally fucked.

    and LOL @ Bonesknows.

    Cormier is a WAY better fighter than Chael. He is better than Chael at the only thing Chael is good at, wrestling. He is also a way better striker, is physically stronger, and is a WAY stronger fighter mentally. He took a huge knee right to the orbital at the end of one of his rounds vs Barnett and it barely phased him. Hell, he is also much quicker with his hands despite usually fighting 2 weight classes above him.

    He's also coming off of a great string of wins, not a loss, and would be coming down in weight, not up in weight. We could really only expect him to do better there barring a bad weight cut, which probably wouldn't happen considering his background in wrestling, and we all know how adapted to weight cutting top wrestlers can be (Fitch, Kos). Chael has proved already that he is not a good fighter at 205.

    Horriable fuckin matchmaking here.

    Zuffa likes the bullshit hype and trash talk cause it sells PPVs to those fuckin morons that wear rashgaurds to Walmart because it says TapouT and that makes it cool.

    Bullshit fight and I wont watch it unless the card is stacked, I have zero intrest in this fight. Although, it will be the first and most likely the last time I want Chael to win.
