MMA  > General MMA  > Sonnen vs Belfort
February 1, 2013, 12:15 PM
I see all over the MMA media and forums statements like "Vitor is crazy. He wants no parts of Sonnen."

Why? Vitor certainly has better standup than Sonnen. And since when have we all forgotten that Chaels submission defense is a complete joke? Oh, he side choked Brian Stann so he won't get subbed by Vitor? Belfort's armbar on Jones wasn't a fluke, he is an ADCC bronze medalist and a high level black belt who has been rolling with the best fighters in the world since he was on Carlson's team rolling with Mario Sperry, Nog and Wallid Ismael.

Vitor's biggest weakness is his mind, but that is Sonnen's as well.

The only ways I see Chael winning that fight are:

a) Vitor gasses with a wild first round flurry the way he did with Sak

b) Chael holds him against the fence for 3 rounds in a co main slot.

Am I nuts? Is it just me or is the whole world drinking the Sonnen kool-aid?

Can't believe Vitor pissed hot. Shocker.If they ever fought I probably take Vitor. If it got passed the 8 min mark, Sonnen would just roll.

Is that for sure yet? Or is this still just a rumor?

Rumor, but going in Vitor looked juiced up. I don't really care either way though. Most of these guys are juiced and that's not why Vitor won. Vitor won because he is more skilled than Bisping. End of story.

Vitor has looked a lot more juiced up in the past though.

Plus, I'm pretty sure it is out there now that he is on TRT. That would account for his looking juiced.

I have a little bit of a hypocritical stance on this. I gave Sonnen crap for it, but I'm fine with Vitor and Hendo doing it. We need to get Noguiera and Wanderlei on this stuff.

Wandy on TRT is a scary thought but would be fun to see.
