Lmao at superfight. Chandler should whoop up on Gono pretty good. Another good building block for him though.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

A motivated Gono ia dangerous. He has a chance. His ground game is pretty under-rated.

I might have to get tickets now.

i see a one sided beatdown by chandler. gono always has a punchers chance. i think chandler will probably continue to win for a while.

on another subject, now that both frankie edgar and eddie alvarez have lost their titles, if frankie cant regain his title from ben, maybe the ufc should bring eddie in as a possible title contender. he wouldnt have to fight his friend frankie.

I'm picking Chandler of course but I'm not foolish enough to totally count out Gono, that dudes a sleeper
