Not sure if it's real or not. I checked his Twitter account but didn't see anything.

Sounds like an article Sonnen himself would have written as part of a self promo.

Mistakes happen, especially when you actually share content (try it sometime). For all Proph has contributed to the PG he can link to The Onion for all I care.

So to play devil's advocate on this one....so if I start posting fake links all over the place it's ok, as long as I'm posting? I've been on here (the forums) for a month or two, and notice a lot of fake stories. I am not taking anything away from people trying to stay on top of news and informing others, but seriously...if I started posting stories from the onion every week it would be ok?? GTFO. Take notice to stuff around the news article and do some background to websites and stories before trying to be 'the first one to post' just to get credit...

My point is that maybe someone who has 53 posts and hasn't contributed anything as far as I can tell (that's not a knock on you either, you are new to the forums) should save the snarky comments when someone who is well respected on the site and has contributed countless legitimate news articles over the years makes a simple mistake. I can assure you, you are the one that comes off looking stupid, not him.

Precisely. Even a well calibrated machine can be off from time to time and sometime when you get your favorite beer that particular batch isn't quite as good.
It's easy to preach from the soapbox because if you never post content your content will never be wrong.
For the record I would prefer to see Silva vs kanye over Ronda vs Gina.

Do you think Silva would have a chance?
