Chael needs to be worried about what Nate is going to do to him. And less about Anderson. Sonnen has never impressed me. IMO he is going to get embaressed by Marquardt. Nate has the tools standing to KO him early and definatly will be the stronger of the two if it goes to the ground. WAR "The Great" . He should get the next shot at Silvas belt after Belfort.........thats right!
Sonnens complete domination of Yushin Okami didn't impress you?
Sonnen won all 3 rounds, but I wouldn't call it a domination. Okami was never in trouble of being stopped, and sonnen never really made an attempt to stop him. Penn/Sanchez was a complete domination. Sonnen/Okami was a quality win.
That being said, Chael isn't the kind of fighter who makes you say "WOAH, HOLY S***!" and never has been. Yeah, It's a feather in his cap to beat okami, but chael will never finsh a top 20 middleweight. His striking is JUST good enough to outstrike bad strikers and great grapplers. His superb wrestling allows him to lay on great strikers and bad grapplers while punching them in the kidneys for 15 minute. Effective, but not exactly impressive or exciting...
As far as Sonnen talking about Silva, it's hype. If he CAN pull off an upset of Marquart, it'll hlep in his case for a title shot which most people don't think he deserves. If by as snowball's chance Nate DOES lose to Chael, all that crap Sonnen talked will mos def fuel silva's fire.
Finally, Listen to how silva talks when he DOES speak english. You honestly think he's fluent in English? I think sonnen is just talking to hear himself talk
