    He lost to Rashad, Silva x2, jon jones and Maia.

    Dude, thats some pretty fucking top competition in the UFC there. Come on. I think there is no shame in losing any of those fights.

    FWIW: I think he beats Maia in a rematch. Maia happens to the one of best in the world on the ground. Hard as fuck to beat a guy like that IMO

    Agreed. Losing to Anderson, Bones and Rashad is embarrassing.

    Good thing he had that strangulation of Shogun sandwiched in there to keep him afloat.

    well Wanderlei hasn't won back to back fights since 2005/2006 and has a losing UFC record and was somehow about to be in a main event until he screwed that up

    He stays at the top because he's a great fighter.

    Once he subs Vitor, he'll headline another massive PPV.

    He is a great talker and he makes the UFC a shitload of money.

    Not that hard to figure out.

    Look at who hes fighting. Silva, silva, jones, shogun, vitor.

    Now go cry somewhere else. Hes not just good at talking he adds value as a fighter.

    The Chael hate is comical.

    You fucking couch potatoes hate on this guy from the comfort of your keyboard while he steps up on a moment's notice to fight the best guys in the world and doesn't give a fuck if he's prepared or not.

    Chael Sonnen has brass fucking balls, and is a fighter through & through. A lot of these game planners that forgot they're paid to FIGHT for a living could take a page out of Chaels book.

    Nobody RAN at Anderson Silva, arguably the best of all time, ever....until Chael Sonnen.

    Because he's willing to fight top 10 guys on short notice. He shouldn't have went up to LHW, but the Shogun win was impressive.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he finished Wanderlei, but what's even less surprising is Wanderlei found a way out of the fight.

    No kidding, I mean honestly Chael walks around between 220-230 probably. I'd be willing to bet that if the UFC needed a replacement for someone to fight Brock Lesner last minute he would show up to weigh ins and take that fight.

    The fucking guy has balls, tenacity and intelligence and he has my fucking respect

    Cause any company loves the employee who stays late, works weekends and does overtime all on a moments notice.

    He fucking stepped up to fight Anderson Silva twice, and Jon Jones, that's why

    Look who hes fighting, his last 5 losses are: Silva x2, Jones, Evans, and he asked for all those fights. Call him crazy but, he will not back down from any fighter even if they're universally ranked P4P #1 and #2.
