Agarista: Let's see if Sonnen can DO something with a takedown (other than get embarassed on the fmat, I mean)Isn't there also a CageWarriors thing tonight?
Agarista: You really think Sonnen-Rua will go the distance? They're both, um, aging.Rua will try to stand him up and second intention kick him. Sonnen will take him down and mangrind him until Rua submits him.If Alcantara's improved his wrestling, the Faber fight could be really excellent.Heavyweight slugfests bore me somewhat.Do you think Overeem-Brown will a) go to the mat or b) ever get out of the "bad breath zone"?

ZeroCorpse: I don't understand how people keep watching UFC. It always comes down to someone getting an armbar or some other solid lock, and the match being ended. I've never seen an actual toe-to-toe martial arts fight that went the whole distance with both guys staying on their feet. It ALWAYS seems to degrade to two guys rolling around on the floor trying to get each other in a lock, or pin the other guy down to deliver a few elbows.Of course, I dropped out of watching it a long time ago... Maybe I missed that one time the two guys actually fought instead of wrestling... But what I remember is the Gracies basically turning the whole thing into a competition to see who would get an armbar or joint lock first.If they wanted it to be interesting, they'd ban wrestling on the floor. If you get off your feet and drop to the floor willingly, you're out.
psychicdeath99: nice reversal... and then one of those rare knockouts!
One Bad Apple: psychicdeath99: nice reversal... and then one of those rare knockouts!Doesn't count. He was on the ground.
Howie Spankowitz: Back now. Right after the fight ended. Great.
styckx: That was no where near the top of the head

dr_blasto: Rua has never won a decision in the UFC, oddly he seems to consistently own rounds 4 and 5 when fights make it that far. I'm not on the "Rua's cardio sucks" wagon so much as that guy really needs to quit eating heavy shots like they're snacks. Sonnen, on the other hand, has yet to win in the distance. He's shown no ability to win at 205 and I think he caves mentally. I expect Rua to take advantage of this in the late rounds.
