Dont think either will get cut. Sonnen is a company guy who will step up for any fight on short notice. Wanderlei has been lucky to alternate wins and losses, so he is not in jeopardy of getting cut should he lose to Sonnen, since he is coming off a win to Stann.
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. -

All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

I am not saying that Rashad's punches were love taps but watch other fighters take literally bombs and they do not give up. Look what punishment Shogun was taking against Hendo (Obviously there will be some smartass posting a gif of Shogun tapping against Jones, so first of all I am talking about Shogun vs Hendo, and secondly Shogun anyway took way much more damage in that fight that Cahel did against Evans), look what punishment Maldonado took from Teixeira and I can name you many more examples of fighters that were eating huge amounts of bombs and still they kept fighting till the end.
You can try to defend Sonnen all you want, he is a good wrestler but he has no heart.
Depends on how he loses.Also, you want Chael cut if he loses to Wand...can the same be said about Wandy if he loses to Chael?
Anyway if Wand loses he will be 2-3 in his last 5 fights. If Sonnen loses, he will be 1-4. Not the same thing, you know?
Yes. YOU, when it comes to Vitor Belfort.Is there anyone on these boards that is more blinded by their hate than Pashak?
Oh sure, I am so sorry that I am not a fan of that Twitter clown.I don't think Pashak knows what objectivity is.
Sorry that I pointed the fact that he tapped due to strikes when nowadays it is very very rare that a UFC fighter tap due to strikes.
But of course I have no idea what objectivity is.
I should have said "He did a very good fight, but Rashad was simply a bad fight stylistically for him (just as Jones, Anderson, Maia and many many others right?)"
Not only brazilians can do this stuff
The position sucks ass and is every bit as bad as you said it is.
Sonnen was not going to get out of it once Rashad gained the full mount.
Those shots from the back were hard and dangerous. As a (once upon a time) fighter I can tell you that tapping to strikes is considered a bitch move, but tapping to strikes when in that helpless position is very understandable and acceptable (to a trainer etc...).
