I started to notice it at UFC 194. He said Aldo would beat McGregor and it wouldn't be close, and Weidman would beat Rockhold easily. And the stuff he said about Holly Holm (there's loads of stuff but I can't be arsed to type it all up). I used to eat his shit up because, after all, he's a guy who fought and trained at a high level, but trawling back over his predications and contradictions over the years I actually realised he's making it all up on the spot, more often than not giving bad advice and making bad predictions. He says shit that is compelling, because it goes against received wisdom "game plans are a myth, when you get in there it's just 2 men fighting and it goes out of the window"...well, for you maybe, but tell that to GSP and Fariz Zahabi. "Supplements DO NOT WORK"... Yet he takes supplements himself? I know the idea of Chael Sonnen saying absolutely anything to get people's attention isn't exactly breaking news, but I always thought of him in that way as a fighter, not when it came to analysis. But he is a really bad MMA 'mind'. Nowhere near Rogan or Shaub or Rutten or some of the other dudes. Whatever he says, the opposite is usually true.
