I actually think he's funny when he interviews.

If your working continously, thats not LnP.



so staying in the guard while landing no significant shots for 12 out of 15 minutes is not LnP to you?



Nope, i call it the Nick Diaz effect. If theres a constant stream of work, the opponent is at least losing steam from getting worked to the body.
Its the little Nuances man...

There was quite a few significant punches, just because the guy isn't immediately KO'd doesn't mean they weren't meaningful. They sound pretty damn hard. And they are moving around and changing position quite a bit.



just because they sound hard doesnt mean they were significant as well. Nate was in no immediate danger which in turn makes none of the strikes a danger. switching from half guard to full guard is not a major transition. Sonnen has no chance of beating another top fighter, PERIOD



I wouldn't underestimate him. I don't think he has a chance against Silva but I wouldn't count him out otherwise.

I completely agree with Pookie. It's akin to getting pressure on a quarterback, it might not always lead to a sack but they start thinking twice before making a decision. That hesitation can prove to be fatal.

Doh! Another close parlay missed.

I had 1500 on Sonnen/Miller for a 71000 payout. Oh well, maybe next time.

Dan Miller, Yushin Okami, Nate Marquardt. I count three, not one. Also, I think Vitor Belfort has the next title fight, doesn't he?

Filho, Marquardt, and Okami were all top 10 fighters when he beat them...not bad in my book.

Nate The Great is not so great on his back.
