    "When a younger fighter beats an older fighter and then they rematch... the younger fighter wins again only easier," Sonnen told FloCombat. "That is the rule of fighting and holds true in boxing, wrestling or MMA. You would have to go back and search two decades to find a scenario where that didn't happen."

    Chael is a wise man.

    I'm sure someone will enter shortly to blow Chael's theory up I just can't come up with one off the top of my head.

    Franky still has BJ's soul

    Aldo has Franky's

    Weidman has Silva's

    That's just the most recent

    Semmy Schilt -Badr Hari .

    Hari won their first match by KO in May, 2009 then later Schilt beat him in the December of the same year by TKO.

    He said this before that fight. A maxim is a general truth.

    Probably have another 20 years now.

    Vitor vs Randy

    Vitor won the first fight by some bullshit cut tko but Randy won the next in dominating fashion

    Example of the younger fighter beating the older for a title only to lose to the older fighter in the rematch

    Kickboxing isn't a sport. You heard Chael he said MMA, Boxing or Wrestling.

    Not a meaningful gap in their ages.

    Chael has a solid point but this is no universal law.

    Anything can happen.

    I would not count Jose Aldo out.

    Sonnen's theory is flawed.

    Where did Chael say sport?

    He said fighting. Kickboxing is certainly a form of fighting, a more complete form than boxing or wrestling.

    I'm very curious to see what training with Robert and Mikey Garcia did for Aldo's boxing.

    Maybe Chael should have phrased it a bit better something like this: if a young talented fighter beats a old talented fighter, and by young i mean at least 5 years in age gap, then chances are in a rematch the result will stay the same. There's the odd situation where someone can land a lucky punch, but with the current USADA rules if two fighters are equally skilled, yet one of them has age on their side, the chances of the older fighter winning are similar to lottery chances.
