Did I see that Renato Leranjo guy refuse to shake Chael's hand after the fight? LOL, thats commitment to staying in character.

Seems like some people are just looking for anyway to diminish Sonnen.

Hateful hateful hateful.
What did I say that diminished him that his performance didn't already do?

Get over what? His shoddy evasion grappling? Okay. I'm over it.

Look, it's obvious many you are just ignorant spectators who do not understand the things you are watching.

You're into personalities, not the sport. Get over it.
Oh snnnnap!!!! Someone get him some ice for that burn!

He did, he survived for a good 3-4 minutes once Andre got his back if I remember correctly.

There is when you are a Catch Wrestler good enough to tap out Black Belts no gi... which is exactly what Josh is, and why Paulson decided to award him an honorary black belt.

When you go from white belt to black belt... you are an honorary black belt. Josh Barnett has never had a blue or purple belt yet he won the Mundials, you really think he did that wearing a gi?

We already have that. It's called wrestlers who train BJJ.
Wow you really don't know what you're talking about at all haha. A "wrestler who trains BJJ" learns stuff like guard passing and single legs from guard. He might even get comfortable working off his back.

Not only is the catch wrestler's mentality COMPLETELY different (never going to your back, ever)... their approach to position, and set of moves are completely different. There are a LOT of weird no-gi Catch Wrestling moves that would be illegal under traditional Jiu-Jitsu rules.
