“People are used to seeing Chael talking and losing in title fights to Anderson Silva but I don’t think people realize that Anderson is a totally different animal than Jon Jones. I think Anderson is a much better fighter than Jon Jones and Jon hasn’t been tested off his back and that’s exactly where Chael is going to be able to put him.
 

I think Chael takes a decision in that fight, it’s a tough fight but I don’t see it as a mismatch like most people think it is. People just don’t get it and are like ‘oh well you know Chael hasn’t won a fight at light heavyweight in years and even when he fought at light heavyweight he lost and all this stuff but styles make matches."

I would have more of an optimistic look at the fight if chael hadnt just QUIT in the second AS fight, didnt seem to take much damage at all before curling up... for all the talk pre fight I still think chael is just in thisnone for the payday before goin full time broadcaster and other infront of camera roles.

Rewatch the second fight. Chael got caught a pretty damn good punch in one of the exchanges right before he was finished. It was overlooked by joe and goldie but it seemed to be the thing that took the fight out of him. Anderson caught him with a great counter, i definitely wouldnt say he quit. Forest went through the same thing.

Stephen Holder - Vinny also picked Sonnen to beat Anderson in their second fight.
Actually, didn't he pick Chael to sub Anderson?

Chael fucked himself over in the 2nd fight with Silva.He threw a ridiculous strike and then froze on the ground.And Silva being Silva,took advantage of the mistake.He was done after that knee to the body. Phone Post

I think Chael would beat Anderson if he could go 5 rounds without making one mistake and using his gameplan.

 

Which is almost impossible.

Anderson is so good, that if you make one tiny mistake your done,  and you are done fast.

I agree.He has the right physical skillset, but he gets careless and Silva only needs one mistake to finish the fight. Phone Post

Someone picking their buddy to win a fight? This is totally unheard of.

I think Chael is being so nice to Jones and giving him all this praise to make him over-confident and not understand the beast that's coming. Chael's trolling super hard claiming Jones is significantly better than Silva and its not even close - it's the other way around and we all know it, Vinny's comments make me think the praise is part of the plan.

Round 1, Jones takedown, elbows Sonnen a bunch in the face, fight ends, Sonnen inexplicably makes more money for losing again.

If Jon didn't strike until 3-4 years ago, and he's this good, then i say he'll be fine from his back Phone Post

I'm not so sure.

Jones pulled guard against Rashad, he must be confident in his ability off his back or he wouldn't do something like that.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jones TKO's or subs Sonnen, but I really want Chael to win, lol. Phone Post

Poorly written - the real story here is that Vinny thinks Anderson is massively better than Jones, despite Chael's recent claims to the contrary.

It's not a fucking breaking story that Chael's trainer picks him to win. Poorly titled article, shit responses here too.
