    That's probably the best. 3 GOATS of 3 divisions.

    There is a difference between being a serious fighter, and a bigoted race baiting, mercenary willing to take a severe ass kicking for money. Sonnen is a joke, but he is a favorite here, due to his race card antics with Silva, Jones, and to a lesser extent, Rampage. Some of you think you're slick, but it's obvious why you REALLY like this prick so much.

    Chael was mere moments away from winning the LHW title.

    Chael has an insane list of names on his resume. Easily one of the best resumes in mma history as far as who he has fought.

    if anyone should take up a WWE offer, it's chael - his superior shit-talking ability would be an amazing asset.
    also i don't wanna see him get beat up any more...

    Chael has fought some extremely tough fighters. And gave some of them a really tough fight. He's definitely not afraid to step in the cage with anyone.

    If he fights GSP he will have fought the MMA Mount Rushmore. Crazy.

    He has no integrity. He's willing to knowingly embarrass himself to get a gig. Really great accomplishment. He's a clown
