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.

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

This countdown sucked,it was a really long promo as much as it was what we generally consider a countdown.Why would they ask Fedor all those questions and keep going to video with him not answering?How stupid was that,the video didn't answer the questions it was just awkward.I knew that would be a waste of time.Holy shit Silva and Sonnen both look liked they aged 10 years.The Card is good overall but I think these last 2 fights will be super anticlimactic.

As much as I love all the guys in the last two fights I just think they will end up being lame.Fedor (my 2nd favorite all time) getting ko'd quick trying to bang cause he's basically been a pure striker since his American debut cause he says that's what the fans want,and Chael with a slow grinding decision taking no chances on the feet.Or Wands tdd/ability to get up is on point and we see a more back and forth fight.I honestly don't really care about the last two fights but the title fights are good and the prelims are solid.
