The two most hated middle weights going at it......I smell a quick and easy pay day for Chael.

i was just about to post this. while most people here hate both, i am one of the rare breed who actually likes both fighters.

that being said, Sonnen is the best bet to beat Silva of the 2 so i will be rooting for him.

From a year ago, but still funny. Email Chael sent to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva.

Joe:

If you get a chance to talk with him, please mention to your idiot-in-residence Michael Spitsbing it’ll be a little tougher to knee ME in the head when I’m charging at him like a runaway train and mincing him through the fence like a boiled potato, should we ever have the pleasure of each other’s company for a few (VERY few) moments in the Octagon.

Oh; and I’d suggest to him being a little careful about spitting on any of MY cornermen, since any one of them can beat him up as badly as I can. Thanks ever so much.
Hope all is well.

-Chael Sonnen

Sonnen's wrestling isn't just among the best at 185 - it's among the best in any division, in any organization. His combination of heavy GnP and effective control is rare, and his ability to pass guard is even scarier considering his recent work with submissions.

Bisping, however, is one of the best at 185 when it comes to defensive BJJ. I doubt he'll sneak in an armbar here, and his frame isn't quite suited for a triangle, but he has solid wrist control and persistent scrambling with excellent cage awareness.

On the feet, I think Chael could hang and wouldn't get picked apart too badly, and he may be able to land some big bombs. The percentages are with takedowns here, but he'd send a clear message if he stood up with Bisping and outboxed an accurate volume striker.

This fight is made for 5 rounds, not the least of which that both of these guys tend to come in with great cardio.

Frankly I thought Munoz would've gotten outworked and generally tooled, and if Chael comes in as he did against Stann I think he'll take a grinding, competitive decision here. But I'm a lot more interested in the card now, and an upset would unquestionably be Bisping's biggest win to date - right before Anderson kicks his head off, but hey!

We haven't seen Bisping be held down, like I think Chael might be able to do.

Interesting. Sucks for Munoz though, injury bug is hitting hard lately.

Wonder if Maia gets an opponent on 10 days notice.

Hell Yes!! Palhares is the perfect choice to replace Bisping. Palhares needs a step up in competition and Maia needs an opponent.

WoW! sucks for Munoz, but I would pay to see Bisping get slammed on his head. Sonnen will dominate Bisping with his wrestling. Maia v Palhares sounds good to me would love! to see that.
