    His striking is definitely way better, but I give the wrestling nod to Sonnen due to pure aggressiveness. That same aggressiveness is what I think could throw Weidman for a loop. I would still have to pick Weidman if I were betting, I'm just saying out of all the 185lb'ers, I would have seen him creating the most problems and having the best shot at a win.

    My bad, I misunderstood your statement I think.

All in all the judging was pretty bad all night. Hall sqeaked out with a win when I feel Santos won 29-28 and the first main card bout the just that call it 30-27 was BS also (Same judge ??).
    err I'm not sure you were following the conversation... I was referring to Machida/Rampage being a SD not a UD. I'm a redneck but not a moron

    I'll say the Brimage fight made me most upset with the judges..that 30-27 final score was ridiculous, I didnt see it anyways and I gave it to Brimage 2rounds-1, him losing the 1st only. I was ok with Uriah Hall, his foot, 'nuff said. Wasnt that bad.

    Sorry thought you were refering to Weidman Machida... Drunken typing on the phone for the lose. I give Uriah lots of credit for fight 2.5 rounds on a compound fractured toe and quite honestly I'll be the first to say I couldn't do it but he clearly lost the fight.

    Sadly, Stefan Struve's career is probably over.. Just not worth the risk to his heart. I wish him all the best

    Tis all good. I'm gonna go re-watch that fight.. I thought it was close and was a toss up that could go either way.
    By the way, nice to see you posting! welcome back

    I scored that fight 30-27 for Machida. Which round did you have rampage winning?

    OK, I'll rain: No. Just...no.

    Of the current crop of MWs, Souza has the best chance to take Weidman's belt. He's got great striking and is one of the only guys at 185 with a submission game even close to Chris's. Like Machida, he gives up a little size to Weidman, and I think Chris is a favorite regardless...but not as heavy of a favorite as he is with the rest of the crowd.

    Pretending for a moment that sonnen wasn't currently disgraced and would be actually competing anywhere or any time in the future...and then taking that absurd fantasy and adding a thick level of pretend frosting that sonnen could be trusted to not abuse PED's in the future, or that we've seen him at any time in the last few years without the benefit of rampant PED abuse:

    In a pure wrestling match, maybe sonnen has the slight edge.

    In an MMA match, Weidman beats him 9 out of 10 times. Weidman is as good a wrestler as sonnen, but he's a far, far, far superior grappler than chael can ever hope to be. Their submission games can't even be compared.

    Chris also has far better striking and transitions than sonnen.

    I thought Hall showed a lot more heart than previously. For me, that was enough. I had bet on him losing the bout.

    Really interested on seeing how Jacare would match up with Weidman. Taking down Jacare wouldn't be something anybody wants to do. I don't expect much from Belfort post trt but we'll see.

    Weidman hada bad ass gameplan pressuring Machida. Machida should have just started letting lose a lot sooner. Also "weak chinned Machida" showed he could take quite a shot lol.

    Anyone else notice Machida grab the fence in the 4th before he started turning it on. I missed the first round of the Hall fight but thought he did pretty good for being that badly injured.
