That was fast. It will be the co-main event. Looks like the headliner is Aldo vs Florian.

Sonnens latest tweet- I ask Brazil for a fight and Machida answers. I ask for a REAL fight and a Marine steps up. I see you hiding Lyoto and I won't forget this.

I fear sonnen is going to take him down and hold him there. Check out the phis davis-stann fight.

A good fight here, although I think that this is all Sonnen.

Stann has reinvented himself as this big power puncher with straight hands and good technique, which is the perfect recipe for his last two opponents. I don't think it is right for Chael though.

Sonnen will hit him from outside, and get takedowns at will. He will probably finish Stann with ground'n'pound.

Interesting. Stann might be tempting at those odds.

I think you said it perfectly clouis. sonnen is alot better wrestler and takedown artist than phil davis is and davis had no problems taking stann down. And even if stann gets some punches on sonnen, sonnen has already showed that he can take a shot in the chin and keep coming. aka jumping knee from silva and still got the takedown.

Did u see the vid of chael talking to ariel on mmafighting.com?? its was classic chael.

"I was in Las Vegas when the Nogueira brothers first touched down in America.There was a bus, this is a true story. There was a bus that pulled up to a red light, and Little Nog tried to feed it a carrot, while Big Nog was petting it. He thought it was a horse. This really happened. He tried to feed a bus a carrot, and now you're telling me this country has computers? I didn't know that!"

Why is this fight a Co-Main event? The man just got busted for PED's "not to mention he lost the fight he cheated for", now he is being rewarded with a co-main event fight?

Way to go Dana and set everyone straight that you will not tolerate PED use!!!
