Sonnen-W. Silva < Sonnen-Belfort < Rockhold-Belfort

Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by BROKENSPROKET, Jun 1, 2014.

  1. I was rather upset when Chael had said on UFC Tonight that his fight with Belfort was going to be at 205 and still have 185 title implications.

    Now that it is at 185, I would love to see Sonnen come up with an injury and Luke Rockhold step in as a replacement.

    Rockhold would get the rematch in Las Vegas, with Belfort off TRT.

    No, Rockhold was beaten relatively recently, and Vitor hasn't lost or gotten a title shot yet. Contenders shouldn't go around rematching the guys the knocked off en route to the title willy nilly. Why is nobody clamoring for a Bisping rematch? He was also the favorite when he fought Vitor.

    How about Shogun vs. Sonnen II? Sonnen would be fighting without TRT on the rematch...

    That would have to be a quick weight cut.

    Just keep it at 205.

    Sonnen has a contract for a fight at 205, pretty sure Dana is the only person saying the fight is at 185. What a mess...
     
  13. After Chael vs Wand was at 205. Chael thought that Sonnen vs Belfort would still be at 205 but Dana White said it will be at 185. It's old news already.
     
  14. That contract was scrapped when Wand was pulled off the card.

    So is there a new contract yet? Cause the old one specified 205lbs. I get the impression that Dana is out of the loop being in Germany n all, did he even realise Wand vs Sonnen was @ 205lbs?
     
  18. I apoolgize. Alot of info has went thru my brain this weekend.

    Sonnen announced on Wednesday that he would be fighting Belfort instead of W. Silva and that it would still be at 205. In Berlin on Friday, during his prefight media scrum, Dana said that it will be at 185.

    To me, it just felt like a long time ago.
     
  19. The legal team probably is probably prepping one, but Vitor can't sign it until he is licensed.

    Gotcha.

    I knew he was fighting Vitor, but, the 185 thing was new to me.

    It's stupid.
