If Chael is off the clear, he's getting torched.

I supported the guy after UFC 117.
Still there after UFC 148.
Still there after UFC 159
Still there after UFC 167
Even after the multiple suspensions and questionable decisions of character, still there.

I don't even care that he lost to Tito. It's the fact that he just appeared to be concerned with collecting a paycheck and nothing more. He looked like crap heading into the fight, and came off as someone without a competitive motive. I was fine when he was trash talking and had some substance backing it. Now he's nothing more than a tired, washed out mouthpiece.

He doesn't need the sport anymore, and every additional fight is diminishing any remaining legacy he might have had.

Oh, and nearly the same can be said about Wanderlei. The difference being that the latter has handled himself a lot more inconspicuously.

Prediction: Sonnen  |  KO/TKO  |  Round 3

The only reason I expect Wand to not pull out of this fight is how crappy Chael looked against Tito. Years too late for me.

I still think Chael takes him down and rides him, but if Wand throws a misplaced fart in Chael's direction or stuffs one TD attempt you can bet your bottom dollar he's Bob-Sapping immediately.

Chael's currently in it for the money only and he's not going to take one punch more than he has to get that money. It's not like he's planning on extending his contract with Bellator. He came out of retirement to get some nice paychecks and then he's back into the armchair.

Wandy might even be able to tap Chael, that last tap vs Tito was Sage level bad sub defense

Wanderlei KO1 always. All time favorite. No one will ever surpass him. He is an immovable #1, Bisping is a permanent #2.
