Despite having lost his last two bouts, Chael Sonnen will still go into his UFC on FOX Sports 1 bout as the favorite to Mauricio Rua:

Nonetheless, the self-proclaimed "American Gangster" from West Linn, Ore., is currently sitting as an early betting favorite (-139) over former 205-pound champion, Mauricio Rua (see the line here), in the build-up to their UFC on FOX Sports 1 #1 main event, which is slated for TD Garden in Boston, Mass., on Aug. 17, 2013.

However, it's safe to assume that more than a few combat sports fans are scratching their heads with the oddsmakers' assessment. That's because Sonnen was able to talk the talk in his two most recent fights, but failed to walk the walk, coming up empty in consecutive title challenges against Anderson Silva at UFC 148 and then Jon Jones at UFC 159.

It's cause Shogun can't defend takedowns and physically just isn't the same, particularly his endurance. This fight basically comes down to if Shogun can beat him with his BJJ in the first round and a half imo. Phone Post

Sonnen wins easily, Shogun will get taken down early and be gassed by the end of the 2nd round. Easy win for Chael, IMO.

Has anyone successfully done anything to shogun on the ground outside of Jones? Machida could hold him down for a couple seconds. Arona got swept immediately. These guys are way better than chael. Obviously shogun is way better on the feet. How can chael even win? Chael barely beat bisping.b Phone Post

If Chael gets through the first 2 rounds, he wins. Shogun's cardio, as well as his broken down body will be a liability as the fight goes on.

I think Chael gets through those first two rounds and wins a UD.
