    Default Gsp vs. Chael Sonnen

    As much as I dont like Chael, I do like him as a fighter, and I think he would give GSP a hell of a fight
    Jones Era >> Machida Era
    Favorite fighters: Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, Michael Johnson, Jose Aldo, Chris Weidman.

    That is a good fight, but of course Sonnen is a MW.

    He would rush GSP, GSP wouldnt be able to get much done standing. I see both of them being able to take the other down. Chael has great takedowns but not the best TDD. It all depends on who gets the takedowns first. It could go either way.

    Chael would likely get submitted by GSP.
    Anderson Silva:
    Best Fighter on the planet.

    GSP easily takes anyone down south of 205 imo... He can definitely get Sonnen down... The only problem for him is that Chael always looks for the takedown. Even against grapplers and fighters you'd think he wouldnt mind standing with, sometimes to his downfall...

    His game is always just to push forward and get the takedown, he is willing to take some shots to get inside... I do see him being able to get GSP down, he has the skill as well as some good size/strength on GSP.




    nice ass btw, you got to come in from the side every now and then. good find.

    No question GSP could sub Chael if he was on top, but we havent seen GSP defending off of his back in a while. Im sure Sonnen has been working on his sub defense as well...

    It would actually be a fight I would look forward to seeing.... Even if it wouldnt be the most exciting, it would be interesting to see how it played out.

    Just straight up skills GSP wins easily. Take Chaels size advantage out of the mix and he has nothing he does better then GSP. At best his takedowns are just as good but GSP's takedown defense is way better.

    The size difference makes it a closer match though I could still see GSP winning by sub or close decision.

    I don't remember a spanking, I remember BJ winning the first fight and GSP getting caught on live TV blatently cheating in the 2nd fight, but way to bring up something totally off topic

    Anyway, back to topic...

    Sonnen is just too big for GSP. GSP may have a better overall skill set but at the end of the day Sonnen is an animal of a wrestler that would have about a 20 pound advantage in weight when they fought. He would take GSP down with little effort and then pound him out until he got a decision or a TKO win.

    They are both arguably the best MMA wrestlers in the world but the size difference is too much for GSP to make up.
    Dude, Iím a wrestler. Iím the best wrestler in MMA. Wrestling IS, was and always has been the most dominate form of mix martial art on the planet. Thatís all there is to it. We all know it, some people want to fight it, some people want doubt it but wresters rule the MMA world. -
