Chael Sonnen calls out Silva...
Okay; now THIS one he could win via wrestling. THIS one...

Would be a great fight for Chael, BUT a terrible fight for Wany to take.
If he doesn't retire Wandy needs to be in there with guys who will stand with him, yeah I know that didn't work too well against Leben! The last fight he should be considering is against a talented wrestler like Chael.
I'll be honest. That fight does very little for me. I mean I'd watch it, but wouldn't be to thrilled about it.

And it begins again. Awesome.
Same as that, the guys a fckin idiot even though he was quite likeable on TUF. Calling out an old shot fighter (no disrespect to Silva but he is far from his prime) just so he can lay on him for 3 rounds. Imo one of the most boring fighters in MMA history, let him fight weidman (once he loses to Andreson) or Belfort. Looking forward to him finally retiring and doing what he is best at, being a pundit!
I think he should drop down to 185, fight a top contender and then get another shout at the title, had he not tried something fucking stupid against Anderson in their second fight and stuck to the game plan a la their first fight and the first round of the second he'd be the champion now. I still think he could beat Anderson, if Chael keeps knocking off top guys then the UFC surely would have to give him another title fight. We'll see what happens, he's far too small to be a LHW.
It would be a real struggle now for the UFC to sell Chael as a credible threat to Anderson again, especially to draw in big PPV bucks.

It's hard to stop someone fighting for the title if they happen to knock off 3/4 top contenders in one division even if they've fought for the title twice... Look at Urijah Faber... He's going to get another one and he's 0-6 in title fights... Also, if Rich Franklin hit to 185, won 5 straight... Would the UFC stop him getting a title fight because he's fought twice.. It's all hypothetical mate I know... I was just saying they'd find it hard to stop someone fighting for the title especially Sonnen who is so well spoken.
