This will upset Forrest and you'll get a Forrest vs. Stephen Bonnar performance out of Forrest.No way Sonnen withstands the onslaught.

Forrest will take him down at will like he did with Franklin , the last Middleweight that bumped up to fight him.

Chael wins. Chael vs Jones is booked for Memorial Day or 4th of July depending on injuries. Griffin wins this just like Hendo beats Jones and the UFC gets a PPV buy rate of 1 million for Benavidez-Johnson.
