    I really wanted to see this fight and Silva seems to be running scared. I think they should sign a new contract saying Sonnen must wear sandals during the fight. Wait a minute....

    Clinch the the double leg with pinky grips only. Now that will be classy.

    Silva will never fight Sonnen, maybe never in the UFC again.

    Not sure that he is running scared. Chael is no longer on TRT, so he is not as good as once was. Silva, to my knowledge, has never run scared from anyone. I personally think Chael would destroy Silva, but I do not think he is running scared.

    If he does come back against anybody other than Sonnen, he might as well make this his walkout song.

    Wand had a chance to fight Sonnen 4 times this past year- Fox Sports 1 last August when Sonnen ended up fighting Shogun, was supposed to be headlined by Wand vs. Sonnen, but Wand said he was not totally healthy. Dana then wanted Wand vs. Sonnen to be co-main event to GSP/Hendricks at UFC 167, but Wand said he wanted more time off to get healthy. Then the UFC booked Wand vs. Sonnen for last week's UFC 173 PPV, but two months ago Wand said he needed more time to recover from his injury. So it gets pushed back to July 5- but Wand did not even submit an application.

    Everyone can draw their own conclusions. Wand is not afraid of Sonnen, but is afraid of being ragdolled for three rounds and losing in embarrassing fashion. When a fighter does not even submit an application 5 weeks from the fight, what does that tell you? Wand had no intention of ever fighting Chael. He wanted to get that TUF Brazil Money for being a coach, and weasling out of the fight. The whole country of Brazil turned against Wand as well for a reason. Wand wants no part of the American Gangster.

    Seeing it in slow-mo makes that TD look staged. Say it isn't so.

    He later clarified that Silva is done for that card but not necessarily forever--although I wouldn't be surprised if this ended up being it for him in the UFC.
