in their primes Lyoto destroys Chael 10 times outta 10. He has considerably more MMA milage than Chael though, this could be a factor however he did look good against Vitor so I still pick Lyoto via TKO.

Neiman Stambowsky vs Rory McDonald is a good main event.

RE: Chael vs Machida, who you got?
Chael consistently underperforms.

He had no gameplan against Fedor and there is no reason to think he'll be well prepared for Machida. He even said in a recent video that "you can't prepare for Machida". Machida on the other hand is very slippery, has excellent hips for takedown defence, and almost never takes mental breaks during fights. I don't see how Chael wins this, but I'll be sure to continue tuning-in to his youtube channel for story-time after he loses.

He is just interested in his brand, and he will portray it as him being 'tough' and trying to 'take the fight to Machida', when really, he was fighting dumb, and just walking forward, absorbing punishment. First time, Machida body kicked him. Then he teeped him, in the same spot (must have sucked). And third time he went for the flying knee. Ouch!

To me it is just an indication of how valuable a 'brand' is, in MMA specifically, and in our world generally.

Chael must have been getting paid enough to make it worth his while. Same with Fedor's retirement tour. In sporting terms, Fedor should have retired about a decade ago. People still want to see him fight, and he is obviously being well paid to keep going. But it is because of brand and popularity, not because he is at the peak of his game, or athleticism.

Sonnen takes these fights knowing that he's going to lose. He seems to think that his smack talking and showmanship before the match is more important than actually coming in to try and win.


He's a high profile Tomato can.

Surprise. Surprise. Chael wasn't the least bit prepared. He went in expecting to lose and fight week, he put his time into his podcast and socializing instead of training. I wish the guy took it more seriously.

This is NuMMA. Did you hear Dillon Danis' little speech, about being the best? He sounded like he ALMOST believed the words coming out of his own mouth.

First time I heard of him was for being kicked out of Marcelo Garcia's gym. Somehow that translates to "winners focus on winning, losers focus on winners".
