Saturday night following his UFC 159 loss to Jon Jones UFC star Chael Sonnen was talking retirement. By Tuesday he was digging up an old rivalry with Wanderlei Silva. There may be method to the madness.

Sonnen steady racking in the cash.
At first I wondered if he would be the first to be featured in a main event while on a 2 loss streak, but then I thought of Edgar.

A 2 loss streak that contains the 2 top P4P isn't all that bad I guess though.

Sonnen less washed up than Silva...mad match-up for him, too.

This could swing one of two ways in my opinion, Sonnen could dominate, ruin Silva and everyone will chear, the UFC and FOX will pull the numbers they want an people will tune in to watch a one sided beatdown. Or, people will realise its a hugely lop sided fight and it could flop.

One side fight. Sonnen would probably dominate with grappling and would win UD. Wandy would need to get him early with something to have a shot.

well that really hasn't hurt many of GSP's PPV buys, or Anderson's

If its on free tv I will watch. Wandy has a chance, he has not been put down with grappling in a while cause he can stand back up, and Chaels aggressive style of coming forward is what wandy wants anyway. also wandy beat Bisping and Chaels fight with Bisping was closer. MMA MATH works as a good base
