Fedor does well to get guys off balance and off their game by causing chaotic exchanges on the feet. I see him waiting patiently and ending Sonnen with a flurry pretty quick, but there really is no telling what shape either guy will be going into this fight. Being as they are both a bit over the hill.

Sonnen has deceptively good boxing, but he has moments where he panics and leaves himself open during a clinch/takedown moment, and that is where Fedor will find the opening and finish him.

My prediction is that Sonnen will turtle-shell within 45 seconds of the 1st rd.

This. I think it will be a repeat of the Rashad fight, complete with Chael flopping like a fish

Fedor appears to be taking this serious so if he comes to fight in the same shape or better when he beat Mir then I don't see Sonnen having much if any chance against em at anytime or anywhere in the fight.

Agreed I don't see this going beyond the first round where Sonnen will be thinking wtf he got himself into & go blank on what to do.

Does Sonnen have a huge head or does Fedor have a tiny head?

For some reason I thought Chael would look small but he’s looks bigger and he looks to be in decent shape.

Fuck it- War Sonnen

....on second thought I hope Fedor chokes out Chael jumps over the cage and starts beating the fuck out of Ariel Helwani...and then the two Russian Orthodox priest guys that hang out with Fedor rush the cage and start beating the shit out of Chael.

Da Emperor takes his rightful Throne but he should be happy that Sergei Kharitonov didn't enter this tournament. A different person might be sitting on top of that Throne.

I'm more worried that Ryan Bader will implemiment his hump and thump gameplan on Fedor, that was brutal.
