Me at presser if I was there, "Congrats Chael, that was a huge submission victory over a legend in the sport! Having said that, your not known for going to your back, did part of you take that risk to go all in on the guillotine because you perhaps were worried your cardio might not have been up to par for a five round fight? Was that a calculated risk that happened to have worked out really well for you or am I completely off base?"

LOL at Vitor calling out Chael and Lyoto calling out Chael while accusing Vitor of ducking him.

That's why you should have been there for a huge presser victory and legend in the sport!

Would Chael go off on me, or answer honestly yes or no, just new it was end of the round?

I suspect I am correct however, and if Chael would answer honestly to something like that than he is a true HOSS.

I don't really want to make bad blood though because we get along well and been trying to get a new interview with him on set for a long time now......

Fudge it, I tweeted it, wonder if he will respond.....either way mad respect and good decision it turned out!!!!

Kinda weird given butt flopping comments in the past though lol.


I kinda have a strong hunch Chael new he was ready for a 3 rounder not a 5 rounder, and didn't want to be Dan Henderson in rouds 4 and 5. Just a hunch, maybe I am crazy.....

Man is busy working for Fox etc.
