UFC president Dana White stated in last night's post-event press conference that Chael Sonnen and Phil Davis could fight in the co-main event of UFC 167.

I think Phil is going to obliterate Chael. He is 100% an escaped prawn from district 9 and is going to be too much of a freak of nature for Chael.

If Sonnen is going to fight a strong wrestler, it would be in his best interest to do it at 185. At 205 he will be out muscled.

Pointless fight. Chael should return to 185 or fight big names on the Senior Circuit. He has 0 chance vs Jones. While Davis at least leaves some hope of a miracle vs Jones. I just do not see the fight doing anything that positive for the winner.

This should be an exciting, stand up war!

Not really. I'm just hoping it's going to be more exciting than I'm expecting it to be.

Chael could win this match. After all, Rashad got the better of the grappling against Davis, and he's not any bigger than Sonnen.

Phil is better everywhere but he better hope Chael doesn't pull guard like he did against Shogun.

I agree that this is a pretty lame fight, but Sonnen/Wandy would be even worse IMO.

why is everyone forgetting rashad out grappled Davis, if rashad could do it, I don't see it as that far as stretch for chael to do it.

Phil's striking was still rudimentary back then. I think he was worried about gettin clipped when he fought Rashad. When he fights Chael my guess is his only concern will be defending the double. But you're right it's silly to count out Chael especially when he has a doctor's note to roid.

I'd rather watch him run through Wanderlei for fun, if Wand would just nut up and take the fight instead of making videos about "how bad he wants to fight"
