Mr. Anderson Silva will take the rematch. All Anderson has to do is defend the takedown and it's over, cause there is no way that Chael can stand with him.

Anderson. he beat him once he will do it again. Last time he was injured this time hopfully he will not be hurt. Everyone talks that he was rocked but if you watch again he kept his hand low trying to prepare for the takedown. also lets not forget he rocked sonnen as well. AND finished Sonnen

Not sure if you watched the first fight but Chael clocked anderson a couple times, all about timing

that's a big task to handle. Chael was actually winning the striking, and that was only because the threat of the takedown was so great that he lost focus in the striking game.

no has proven to be able to stop Sonnen's clinch or takedowns. the only one who has done it is Maia, and he hit a lateral drop that no one saw coming. Anderson's best chance in this fight is to manage his distance and be incredibl active off his back. he can't be too worried about the takedown or he will get outstruck. he needs to implement his plan, and if worst comes to worst, keep a very active guard to stifle Chael's offense.

on the flip side, Chael has been working with a new JJ coach and his passes/submissions attempts looked leaps and bounds better. Chael even displayed great round-to-round adjustments with his grappling and i am extremely curious to see how he does against a healthy Anderson that isn't taking him lightly.

as of now, i'm picking Chael because he is the Overlord of all humanity, but realistically it is a toss up and i am excited to see who comes out on top.

I beg to differ. Unlike most of Anderson Silva's opponents, Chael is not intimidated by Anderson's striking and matrix movements. Chael rocked Anderson in their first fight during the stand up.

Anderson does have a better stand up than Chael but to say Chael stands no chance is bending the fabric of time, space and reality.

And btw, Chael is very deserving of this fight. He is as deserving as all or most of Anderson's prior opponents. Look at Silva's past title defenses and there should be some questionable opponents who probably did or did not deserve the title shot(s).

This is a toss up for me but I honestly think Anderson will take this. I know Chael dominated the first fight but I think this fight will go a lot differently and Silva will look much better

I agree that Chael is deserving, and that he is as deserving as most of Anderson's prior opponents. But i think it needs to be said that Every champ who's had as many title fights as Anderson is going to have a couple questionable opponents. Gsp, Fedor, Bj Penn, Chuck. All of them.
