sonnen ground and pounds him for a ud, wilson is slick but chael has handled better grapplers.

Interesting fight! Styles make fights. In my mind Gouveia's got the world to loose.And Sonnen might,just might be the better ground practioner.On the feet and gnp go to Gouveia. Both have some cardio issues recently.Could be a really good fight.Sonen is slick on the ground,i'm just not sure if he'll withstand Gouveia's gnp.That's if the fight's not settled on the feet.American Top vs Team Quest is awesome!

As long as gouveia doesnt come in like he did against Jensen he should be able to secure an arm and pull of the victory.

I got Wilson all day in this fight. Sonnen seems to have good reach so mabeys he could try staying on the outside and picking Wilson apart, but he'll probably end up getting knocked out.

I think that Sonnen is going to take Gouveia down and pound him to a UD victory.

Wilson by submission in the 2nd round,either an armbar or a triangle.Sonnen is a solid fighter and a good guy,but his sub defense has always been very poor.

?? I would say that gnp goes to Sonnen but the ground skills go to Wilson.

Wilson has a 76" reach

I'll probably go with Wilson. He's a much better striker, and has the BJJ to put away a submission succeptable Sonnen. That said, Gouveia runs on a limited gas tank, and I wouldn't be surprised if Sonnen could press him against the fence and stay tight on the ground enroute to a decision.

I have to agree with the masses here. Gouveia via TKO, prolly in the 1st. Sonnen's wrestling isnt good enough to get Gouveia down , and wont want to get that close.
