That would be a awesome fight I'd want to see.
Sonnen would probably take the fight UD.
Silva would need an early TKO or something because Chael usually gets better as the fight goes on.

Good enough, give him an easy win so he can fight someone who is not an aging superstar...I'd like to see him fight (and pick on) Mousassi...that could be fun!

I think the smack talk would go to a whole new level from Sonnen. Im sure it would get over the top, but it would be entertaining for a while.

Side note: When the fuck are they going to give Gegard a fight?!?!? I've been waiting years for this dude to get picked up by the UFC and the only fight he had was against fucking Illililir bc Guss cut himself shaving.

More good matchmaking along with Vitor vs Hendo. This offsets putting Kennedy against Machida.

I'd rather see the Belfort fight personally. Silva doesn't present much more of a challenge than Shogun. Better tdd maybe but Sonnen's aggressive power double he hits guys with right off the bat is hard for anyone to stop.
