This fight will have a bunch of threads with the same rhetoric coming along every time. People saying Shogun is shot and will get gassed by Chael's pace, and others saying Chael is a choker, that he has never beat anyone as good as Shogun and citing some bad losses on his record. I do not look forward to the discussion about this fight.

Chael will out wrestle Rua no doubt about that. I see it going to the ground early, but Shogun when full of energy, has amazing sweeps and transitions from the bottom. Unless he subs Chael in the first two rounds (highly possible) I see Sonnen grinding out a decision.

Very interesting fight. Phone Post

LibraryCard - What? The bookies got trolled by Sonnen. Rua's gonna knock Chael the fuck out. Sonnen is a B-level fighter and always has been.

The house makes money no matter what dude. That's because odds are based on how people are betting. And bookies have nothing to do with the official odds. AND B-level fighters don't nearly beat Anderson Silva. You're not too bright.

I'll make money by betting not only on Shogun, but on Shogun but specifically by sub. It'll sound obvious after the fight happens but no one is saying it right now.

i watched Chael against Silva nervously as i really wanted Sonnen to lose, but in his quest (both times) i gained a major respect for him. He challenges the best, and though Shogun is a total stud as well, I have to root for Sonnen.

I can't say I'd be shocked to see Chael win, but I expect Shogun to finish him.

I'd like a prop bet for Shogun by triangle choke.

Only JBJ has held him down iirc. Dreams swept away. Sonnen to be sent back to MW again where he belongs. Shogun may win via TKO via GNP after reversal though.

This would be Sonnen's biggest win ever, much better have lost to Shogun.

Shogun can't defend a takedown if his life depended on it.

Personally, I think Shogun is a shot fighter.

But, I freely admit that I could be wrong. This is the perfect fight to discover if '2005 Shogun'(or even the 2009-2010 version) still exists in any way.

Like he gives a F! Not even Arona could keep him down. DERP
LMFAO @ this.

This was projected to open with Shogun -185! http://www.mmaoddsbreaker.com/news/mma-odds-and-ends-for-monday-sonnen-vs-rua-machida-vs-davis-targeted/

Hate to say it, but this has Sonnen UD via wrestlesex written all over it. I hope Rua can pull it off, but he's got one round of gas to get it done. Phone Post

is the Arona example, from almost 8 years ago, really relevant to evaluating Rua in 2013?

I think even the biggest Rua fan would admit that 2005 Rua, perhaps the best run in the sport's history(besides Jones), is not who will be entering the cage against Sonnen.

Moran you are talking about "betting" prior to the opening line getting set LMFAO. DERP!

Lines are set to protect the house and if a BS line is set they can lose big right away.
