      Can't wait to watch Silva demolish Sonnen. A lot of people mention the fact that he didn't pass the drug test, but for get to mention he had a 16.9 to 1 testosterone to epitestosterone level. That is insane. For reference, Overoids had a 14 to 1 ratio.

      Hoping this card is entertaining.

        With my new work schedule I'll be off next Saturday. How the hell am I going to contain myself with all day to think about the PPV?

                I am calling Sonnen to dominate for five rounds again.

                Dong Hyung Kim by either KO or sub.

                  Silva dominates Sonnen, Maia goes to another UD and Guillard gets choked out.

                    Omg I forgot about Guilliard. It's so sad watching him fight I know whats coming and he used to have so much potential.

                      Chael Sonnen vs Anderson Silva
                      I'm going with the reigning champion here. Chael may have exposed many kinks in "the Spider" and his game, however those holes are likely not to be there this time around. Also it's really hard to give a guy credit who's game plan is really no different from the first fight, which did not result in him winning the fight. It's even harder to give a guy credit who calls the proven 185 king (who beat him in their last exchange, very skillfully) a charlatan. Mind you I understand this is a) a marketing tactic for better fight promotion. and b) a Mohammed Ali-esque tactic to get into his opponents head proceeding the fight. However, sometimes pissing someone off just motivates them even more to make a statement out of you. And when that person has beaten you before it just seems like a poorly thought out plan.

                      AS by UD or 2nd Round TKO.

                        Nice presser I just watched.

                        (I got the flu today, so I may waste some time on stuff.)

                        Chael looked ...Even a bit timid, if you ask me.

                        The journalists, and Silva himself, went after his TRT, the roiding, and the fraud issue, and that kind of shut him up.
