    do people really think chael has any way to beat rashad?

    this is a suicide fight for him with nothing to gain except money

    The same thread was made when he was going to fight Shogun...
    I'm picking Rashad though.

    Rashad doesn't even thought Lil Nog has a chance against him

    i dont think so...
    a lot of people said shogun would win, but everyone knew there was a chance chael would have his way with him with his wrestling.

    with this fight, i dont see chael being able to do literally anything offensively..

    The only chance I see Sonnen having is if "extremely unmotivated, WTF is he doing?" Rashad shows up.

    Sonnen fans need to pray for this guy to show up. :icon_lol:

    Otherwise, I don't think he has much of a chance.

    Hope it's a good fight anyways.

    Rashad matches up better with Sonnen than Shogun does, doesn't mean Sonnen won't win, though.

    a great boxer had the timing on his jab down and made rashad pay with one of the best weapons there is in boxing...

    Chael has a chance but ultimately Rashad will win.

    Not really. Rashad is an even better wrestler than Jones and look how badly Jones out wrestled Sonnen. Rashads also got a better striking game than Sonnen by far.

    I wouldn't say that. ALOT of people knew Shogun was going to absolutely smash Chael.

    Rashad couldn't take non-TRT Hendo down.

    Sonnen will win. Though it'll be close

    The only thing I can think of is...early on a mix of trading safely with Rashad, letting him dance and throw hard punches that hopefully don't land, and grinding him out against the cage for a while until he's gassed. Rashad has shown he can and will get pretty damn tired if forced to work hard during a fight. This may allow Chael to get a takedown half way through the second or at the beginning of the third. Do your best GNP top position Chael thing until the bell rings and hope the judges give it to you.

    Not very likely though, I favor Rashad.

    Rashad gets lazy sometimes. The first few rounds vs Forrest, Lil Nog, Hendo, etc. Sonnen could win this. I favor Rashad myself, but I think Sonnen will win the first few rounds

    On paper Rashad is better than Chael in every aspect.
