I think the line is accurate.

I hope Stann wins



Most of us do.

. Being from Oregon I want all the locals to do good but he talks so much dumb **** that he comes off as a clown



Being from Oregon myself, I give you

Chael is baaack, deal with it

never said I didn't want him to win, just to talk **** AFTER he wins. Looked good on his promise 4 1/2 rounds vs silva then lost and all the trash he was talking made him look like a clown, but if you are the end all be all of oregonians then who am I to talk

Honestly, for me.... When Chael was going on his mud slinging campaign for the Silva fight, he annoyed the piss out of me. To me, he was saying the same things everyone had said.

"He's never fought anyone like me" blah blah blah. Of course, he took it to a whole new level. But, I was thinking "Yeah that's what everyone says before they get smoked in the first by AS".

When that fight actually happened though, and he whooped up on Anderson for those 4½ rounds, that was the exact moment he gained my respect. Because for those 4½ rounds, he actually was backing up the talk, more so than any of Anderson's previous opponents had.

Of course, we found out afterwards a lot of factors were coming in to play for that fight.... Sonnen's testosterone ratio, the potentially broken rib of Silva, etc. But regardless.... He backed it up longer than anyone has so far.

I was already planning on going to UFC 136 but this is just the cherry on top. Unfortunately I like both of these guys but with Sonnen's layoff I'm apt to go with Stann.

I will pick Sonnen in my Fantasy picks though just because he said he's going to Wand's house with night vision goggles LOL

I so want sonnen to win because i am desperate for him to fight Silva again and this time Silva will KO him in round 1 and then all the sonnen nut huggers can't keep bleating on about how he beat Silva for 23 minutes. The guy is 4 and 4 in the UFC hardly the record of a world beater.

The reason i say this is because even if Stann KO him in round 1 the sonnen lovers would still say yeah but he beat silva up for 23 Mins (SO WHAT HE LOST)

Chael lost. He is a great wrestler, but he is not dangerous. He is good at holding people down, I think although he couldnt get up, he could submit whenever he wanted.Silva waited for 5 rounds, and conserved his energy, while Chael wasted his , but next time it will end in the first round.

Its really sad that peoples negative opinion of sonnen is not letting them give him the credit he deserves. Is he anoying? Yes. Is he a top middle weight despite his 4&4 ufc record? Without a doubt. Idc how much I hate someone if you handidly beat Okami and Nate then almost beat and dominate the best fighter in the world (if not 2nd gsp) then the guy deserves respect. He was 2.min away from becoming the world champ. Let's be objective people.

And now Sonnen is down to -260

Stann at +200 is worth the bet.

Smuck

This fight will be a carbon copy of Marquardt v Sonnen.

Accurate line, I dont see Stann's TDD and guard work to be too threatening tbh.
Considering Stann's last fight where he had to exercise it was against Mike Massenzio (who ironically pulled off a triangle after losing much of the fight).

Sonnen's ability to takedown/gnp Dan Miller, and Marquardt and even Silva for a while should be enough to dispatch Stann IMO.
