    Default UFC 148 Predictions?

    What's the predictions for tonight's fights? Silva or Sonnen?......... Griffin or Ortiz?

    Who's everyone favorite fighter and why?

    What do you guys think about a future Jon Jones vs. Dos Santos? (If Jones moved up in weight)
    Success is not a goal it's a result

    I'm torn on sonnen/silva. In my opinion it can go one of 2 ways. 1.)(most likely) the first fight was a fluke and Silva knocks Sonnen the fu*k out in an early round with a crazy shot to Sonnen's face.
    or 2.) The first fight wasn't a fluke and Sonnen finds a way to finish what he started.

    Sonnen took a crazy shot to the face, but I'm pretty sure keening a downed opponent is not legal. I could be wrong though.

    Supposedly they're allowed to knee a downed opponent in the body but just not the face. It really did look like though Sonnen took that knee to the face while he was down and before that Silva did hold the trunks.

    Yeah its legal to knee/kick a downed opponent to the body, and the knee hit Sonnens chest.

    After watching the post fight presser, im actually a fan of Sonnen now. Its clear that hes not actually a complete moron but just acts it to sell fights.

    I like Sonnen also. You could clearly tell he was not happy when Silva pulled him to the center of the ring after the fight.

    The knee may have hit the chest but to me it looked like it also got him in the face as the bridge of Sonnen's nose was split open after he took the hit. Oh well maybe they will fight again. I honestly think Sonnen can beat Silva. I don't like Silva. He's always trying to showboat. He should jump up to Light Heavy and let Jon Jones pound his face in.

    He would lose to Jones, hence why hes not going up!

    I always saw sonnen training that spinning back punch on you tube and thought why does he focus on it so much, isnt it more of a show move? Well that was a total fail come fight time lol. My respect for sonnen became less and less over time and was glad silva ko'd him this time around.

    I thought the same thing about the spinning backfist. Why would someone with such a wrestling oriented, bland offense train that? Then I saw an article about it. Basically it talked about how throwing a spinning backfist is usually pretty low risk, only a few guys haver ever been countered doing it. It allows you to close the distance quickly and usually safely. So basically this was a way for Chael to get close and even maybe land a lucky shot. However, he pulled one of the all time goof ups and will probably have nightmares for the rest of his life about it.

    I believe chael posesses the power and skill to beat silva but things never turn out his way, call it bad karma or what.
