Hopefully you guys are right and Chael won't be hindered by the cut. Seems a little high to me, but whatever works for him.

Well you have to realize that a lot of the weight these guys cut is water weight so they have to dehydrate themselves. It's not a good idea to be dehydrated for several days. This is why guys are often 20+ pounds heavier on fight night than they are at weigh-ins.

Yeah I get that. I'm sure he knows what he's doing. Now he just needs to know what he is doing in the cage Pray

Im not trying to sound arrogant or cocky, but does anyone here really think Chael is going to win? Im not asking if you think he has a chance of winning (he, obviously, does). Im asking if you truly think he is going to win.

No, I think this time Silva will be better prepared, and it's still a 5 round fight where you have a mistake prone wrestler who isn't great at finishing against the best finisher ever.

I will be ecstatic if I am wrong, but I see this going like the Okami fight. In the end people will be let down, lots more build up to the fight and not much of a fight.

Chael Sonnen is going to get f***** wrecked.

I hope that is the case.

No but there's really nothing I've wanted more in MMA before Laughing so hopefully he surprises us all.

In case no one has posted this yet - see Ariel's video with Dolce below. Dolce sounds pretty confident, and has every reason to be.
