    July 2016 Chael Sonnen can fight again. Chael will be 39 anderson will be 41. Its not unimaginable that they will both be healthy enough to still compete.

    What if Andersons new title run dosen't go so smoothly but he still sticks around having entertaining fights. Chael has talked about a 3rd fight, the last two fights showed who the better fighter was but weren't completely satisfying in that we never really saw Anderson beat Chael on his feet and keep him from taking him down.

    First fight Chael dominated but got submited at the very end, second Chael dominated but couldn't take him down due to some dodgy shorts play then he screwed up and got tko'd. Not taking anything away from Silva he won and did it well but there is still some doubt.

    I think that it could still be a big draw and a nice pay day. Who knows if there will still be interest but i think you could put chael in front of a microphone and build interest in anything.

    Also july 2016 isnt that far away in UFC terms, cain will probably still be recovering from beating Werdum and getting ready to fight interim champ Brendan Schaub.

    I'm a Chael nuthugger but a lot of people seem to neglect or not realize that he got rocked just before he tried that spinning back fist

    I think he is only allowed to fight in the ufc. I think they just fired him from the pr jobs but he is still a contracted fighter.

    Anderson by whatever he wants.

    Sub, KO, decision, whatever.

    It's his fight to lose.

    That part of his employment was through fox. Chael is stil technically under contract with the UFC, just retired. Should he un-retire his contract as a fighter picks up where it left off.

    I'd rather see Weidman vs Sonnen than Weidman/Andy 3 or Andy/Sonnen 3. I think Sonnen has the wrestling and boxing to test Weidman.

    Chael has a hell of a lot better chance of beating Anderson than Diaz has

    Sonnen owes the commission a hefty fine. I haven't heard of him paying up.

    He would also have to fight without using any banned substances.

    He could possibly win, if he used what he needed to use. Probably not, but possible.

    What would be fun (in a couple years) would be a fight in a different country, where they do Sonnen vs Belfort. Take all the roids you want and FIGHT!!!!!

    Chael fails a random drug test during media obligations for fight promotion.

    I thought the fine was pretty small cause he is doing charity work.

    Chael cowered in the second one. Couldn't get the td so he panicked and lost his composure and pretty much gave up. Would like to see a third if he gets his heart back.

    So Sonnen wins every full round and likely with a 10-8. I'm cool with that.

    Anderson will never win a round against Chael.
    The style contrast between them is so extreme.
