Am I the only one who thinks Shogun could pull out a submission on Sonnen?

I mean, the guy doesn't have the greatest history defending submissions, and Shogun is pretty slick on the ground.

Chaels never been KO'd so personally I'm more thinking he gets rocked and Shogun catches him in an RNC or something more than Shogun gets the KO.

Off his bottom though we saw from Forrest that it is possible to use his weight to sit on top, yes Forrest was swept but Chaels focus is to stay in the guard. Staying in the guard is what he's good at and we haven't seen Shogun win via a real sub since '06. And that was a Heel hook, not a triangle or Armbar beggining off his back.

That may have contradicted what I just said. But what I'm saying is Shogun won't get the sub after the takedown (IMO) it's more likely he'll get a sub when Chaels rocked

I was going to props you for this post since I mostly agree, but I've gotta spread the love first

I don't see Shogun getting any takedowns either, so I agree that if he gets a submission it'll mostly likely be after dropping Chael and then jumping on him, probably with a RNC.

Still, if Shogun can't do that I think there's still a chance he could lock something up from the bottom. The triangle that Anderson had on Chael was barely locked on. I mean, had Chael not tapped out I believe he would've already been out of the choke and at least remained conscious. Chael just seems flustered when people are trying to submit him. His first fight against Paulo Filho was another good example of this. Even the armbar that Jeremy Horn got on him before that wasn't fully locked on.

Chael Sonnen and submissions just do not mix, but we'll see what Shogun has left in the tank.

A takedown machine vs a guy who gets taken down a lot.
