    Toney by gogoplata, you heard it here first.

    Also got money on Chael to win, several people have managed to ground anderson but chael has the biggest chance to do it consistently and hold him down.

    In b4 epic fail.

    His wrestling is very inferior to Dan Henderson's wrestling. We see how that worked out.

    Very, based on credentials? GSP's wrestling is inferior to Koschecks if you put it like that.

    Sonnen has much better aggressive wrestling than Hendo, his cardio is sick and his double legs are second to non. Henderson is greco roman, he utilizes dirty boxing in the clinch way more, and uses his wrestling to keep fights standing up.

    And Hendo did well, but Sonnen can easily mimmick that but with much better take downs.

    Nice reasoning, theres obviously no doubt Sonnen can lose.

    LOL that you think Hendos wrestling is superior. Freestyle > Greco especially in this situation. You think dirty boxing is a good idea vs Silva?
    A guy with sick double legs and top control > what your saying is superior.

    Sonnen could do exactly what Shields did, "inferior" wrestling and all....

    Gsp is still the only guy near silvas weight who opens up at +250 or better
  17. #467
    Also. The reason the odds on sonnen are as good as they are is the ufc hype freight train. He should be +500 or +600. He doesn't have the skills to finish silva and his sub d is bad. Silvas good at negating damage from his back and can stifle sonnen from there most times or finish him. Silva by FUBARing sonnen. Anything can happen but cmon. I hate silva but sonnen is not the guy. Gsp, rua, etc.

    Im not saying HE WILL WIN, im saying he CAN and the fact others have grounded Silva, much inferior wrestlers with worse GnP and top control have caused trouble.
    He CAN grind out a UD here, especially with what we've seen from both fighters.

    Or we can just be like Z0MG SILVA IS A NINJA HE HITS SO FAST/HARD HE TURNS WATER TO WINE, which is ridiculous.
  19. #469
    Iirc in ufc the only person to do anything close to what you're saying was hendo and tbh he didn't do that much. Hendo > sonnen in total ground game iyam. Sonnen lacks finishing power and if he doesn't get subbed silva will be able to stifle him enough to get the standup. I hate Anderson and am rooting hard for the troll god chael. Anderson will wtfpwn. See y'all in 9 hours. P.s. Jds, dos anjos, almeida, and fitch win

    I've never wanted to be more wrong. War sonnen!
  21. #471
    Fuck.

    So much for "inferior" wrestling and Anderson by murder.
    That fight went exactly as predicted minus the fucking triangle. Said it for ages, P4P king my ass, he's never faced anybody great and has shown awful TDD. The fact he got outstruck by a wrestler is hilarious.

    Sigh.

    holy shiiiiiittt awesome fight. I had money on silva but I still was rooting for sonnen haha. Couldn't have been much more interesting imo
  27. #477
    FUCK.
  28. #478
    Vitor ruins silva standing, hopefully sonnen gets rematch and does it all again and learns some sub defense.

    By worst day you mean fighting a sick wrestler, be interesting to see how he does if he finally fights a sick striker in Vitor.
    Andersons worse day was being exposed, as said before worse people had him on his back and they were not in the same league as somebody like Sonnen.
    GSP/Fitch at 185 would do exactly the same.

    So he wasn't exposed? Oh, hang on you seemed to think he would win by "murder" and that he is good vs wrestlers as you think Hendo is an amazing take down and control artist, right?

    Let me guess, he should be in K1 too.

    Failllllllll.

    WTF @ no Couture/Toney discussion (did I miss it?). I've heard that Toney is a 5 to 1 dog. I believe it. Randy just needs to fight a very standard (don't trade punches standing up) fight and he'll make Toney look like a little gurl.

    i bet $500 on forrest griffin at +330 if he fights jon jones within the next 12 months.

    thoughts?
  47. #497
    I know I don't post in this thread anymore, but I just gotta say, damn gabe, you must hate that 500$

    Without getting into details, I'll just state that Bones is being built, and not only is he future LHW champ (and that's considering that a healthy Shogun is the LHW GOAT), but future HW champ. Plus, when asked if he was fighting Bones, Forrest said he hopes he's not fighting Bones, then laughed and said at least it wouldn't be worse than Anderson, yet he doesn't realize that Bones would tool Britney Silva's overrated clown ass.

    There are several important factors when handicapping, but one that people always forget is from the promoters perspective. Bones is being groomed, fans are stupid, lines won't reflect reality, and a bet against Bones unless it's for title or no.1 contender will be wrong.

    the toney fight was a joke as expected (randy is obv going straight to the ground 100% of time) , but wow was surprised at penn getting dominated again !!! Edgar is good but will struggle wit the bigger maynard imo (florian my boy fought like shit !) .

    ps joe lauzon impressive !

    lol at Mir/Crocop (only fight I saw)

    At least it ended with a pretty cool knockout, but literally nothing else happened for 2+ rounds. Joe Rogan even apologized during the fight because there was literally NOTHING going on during the "fight"...

    That's what happens when you're no longer provided a deluge of Japanese cans, stylistically encouraging fights, short notice fights, and competition continually improves

    Mirko is as good as he ever was (actually, he's a little better), it's his surroundings that have changed.
  56. #506
    Brocktober is amongst us...

    Got bet on Cain (while he was an underdog) and a 4 to 1 paylay on him and paulo thiago winning.
    And a decent bet on shields.

    But fuck the welterweight division tilte fights we gotta look forward too, zzzzzzzzzzzz.

    Question: Did Lesnar just get his ass kicked large?

    Question 2: Why are his feet so yellow?

    Lesnar rode the top end of run good to survive this long.

    Bet on shields was tense, as if the idiot decided to cut 20lbs on the last day, no wonder he looked awfull towards end of round 2 and 3. His ground game is insane though, lol at people saying kampmann was robbed.

    Had 3 bets on Velasquesz, paid off as planned, only lost on Paulo Thiago, but what a sick fight that was.
  59. #509
    only saw the last two fights last night. BJ Penn looked like his old self, he's looked sluggish in his last couple fights if I recall correctly. maybe it's because he was facing 37 year old Matt Hughes, but I hope not, I hope he's back.

    Rampage looked pretty good compared to his last fight, but got rocked at the end of round three...will the UFC ever make non-title fights five rounds?

    nevada athletic commission needs to step up here and fix things. judging is so fucking bad...wtf
  62. #512
    you know it's fucked up when one judge rules it 30-27 in favour of the obvious winner, and the two other judges somehow rule it 29-28 in favour of the obvious loser. what. the. fuck. How do you fuck that up? What fight were these morons watching.

    If I'm not mistaken, the judges were: Cecil Peoples, and two women. Not insinuating anything, but....... Cecil Peoples, veteran judge who used to work boxing for decades. These two women have no such record to speak of.
  63. #513
    i missed that fight, but cecil peoples is lolbad.
  64. #514
    yeah I've def heard of peoples' fuck ups in the past, but what judge lasts decades without having some type of controversy attributed to them... anyway, I suppose you have a point. There's really no way for me or anyone to be sure that peoples was the one who correctly scored it 30-27, it could have just as easily been one of the two women judges...

    Anyhow, something really needs to be done about judging in MMA. this is a travesty, and it is not an isolated incident. what a bunch of BS

    Watching some MMA show right now and one of the fighters has the last name Cox. Laughed pretty hard to hear the announcer say, "He keeps beating on the head of the bigger Cox."

    Bump.

    Next season of The Ultimate Fighter is going to be Dos Santos and Lesnar, winner faces Velasquez when he's back from his injury. Rumored location for their fight is Vancouver in early June.

    Fuck yeah.
  70. #520
    Dana and Joe Silva should be charged with conspiracy to murder. Honkey Kong hasn't beaten anybody other than a fifty year old man, a deer in headlights, and a cadaver. He can't cover up like Roy, he's slow as molasses, Junior will be fast enough to keep the underhooks and scrambles working, then Turtle Lesnar shells up as Junior bombs him even worse than Cain did

    I was hoping for a Chael vs Don Frye TUF honestly. That would be the greatest bit of television in all history
  71. #521
    No matter what you think of the matchmaking it's the best of a bad situation with Velasquez on the shelf and definitely the most competitive fight they could make.

    Plus I'll get to see it live so ship it.
  72. #522
    Oh for sure I agree, the matchmaking and all that is great. Brings in more eyes, the show will probably be entertaining, and it feeds Brock to somebody who's going to make him look even worse than Cain did. I'll take anything that makes Brock look bad. I'm still not over Lactimus Prime punching himself out and having a mana drain between rounds then all the retards claiming Brock's tackle and triangle of a dead man was something other than mediocre

    I'm just sad that it seems that Brock won't be provided with the opportunity to lose to Fat Country any time soon.

    Not to mention that the Cain/Junior fight is easily the biggest MMA HW fight in history. The only ones that could compare any time soon would be Shane fixing his gas issues and taking one of them on or Overeem smashing Fedor after Werdum's skull is sent into orbit, assuming Fedor can skim past Silva
