The Top 5 Current Blood Feuds
I'm sure this has been done before, but we are going to do it again, taking a look at the top 5 current rivalries and some of the fighters you love to hate. Brock makes this list twice being his warm, personable persona. As fans of MMA, we can look forward to every single one of these happening sometime in the future.
Without further delay, drum roll please:
Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen – Dana White stated right after their first fight that there would be a rematch. Not only that, but that would be the next fight for Silva. You need to get out of that dog house Anderson. Sonnen totally controlled the world's best for 4 rounds, until Anderson Silva shocked all those watching on TV and in attendance with the most shocking triangle since Eddie Bravo submitted Royler Gracie at ADCC in 2003. For the most part, Sonnen did exactly what he said he was going to do. He just left out the part about getting submitted with the win already in the bag…
Nick Diaz vs. K.J. Noons – This one has been simmering since all the way back in 2007. Noons being stripped of the Strikeforce belt led to a delayed rematch, but much to the fan's delight, this one is set for October 9th. Since losing to Noons, Diaz has been unbeaten in his last seven. Noon's won the first meeting via TKO due to cuts, but will lose the second showdown getting submitted via a slick triangle. This fight is definitely going to get Strikeforce more press than usual as fans take sides on this one.
