The difference between Chael P. Sonnen and...

najmanajma Posts: 2,072Free
When GSP wants to grapple, he can't submit a non-belt Dan Hardy for 5 rounds.
When Chael P. Sonnen wants to grapple, he pulls guard on a BJJ black belt and submits him.

When Anderson Silva goes up to 205, he fights Bonnar.
When Chael P. Sonnen goes up to 205, he fights Shogun. Go figure.

When Brazilian fighters don't answer Rogan's question, they talk some useless garbage.
When Chael P. Sonnen doesn't answer Rogan's question, his answer is way cooler than if he did.

    Yeah, but Sonnen isn't consistent. Sometimes he looks downright careless.

    The difference is GSP has won 10 championship bouts & Sonnen has won ZERO. ;)

    They're both exceptional MMA wrestlers that have been caught cheating, punch like little girls, talk more than they actually perform and make a living based on a world-class power double and little else....?

    Okay, I give up. What's the difference again?

    Your comparing cans in the 185 and 205 division to elite fighters at 170?

    Also GSP does not really try that hard,he is always thinking keep control rather than go for any sub.As you saw with Sonnen he had to risk dropping to his back to lock it in,not really the smartest move.
    Not like 75% of the Black belts are any better than the guys who randomly train Bjj during practice.Black belts are simply a piece of cloth given to you by another person.

    A former 185 is better than everyother 170lb fighter besides GSP and a guy who got clowed by MW's and LHWs is now your division's hottest prospect lol get real.

    Um... yah.... GSP never fought Anderson Silva or Jon Jones, either. Those would have been in 3 losses for the little Canadian man, too.
    the buffer 180... best move in the UFC.

    Excellent thread, najma. Sonnen vs. GSP anyone?

    Let's analyze:
    1. GSP puts Sonnen on his back = nothing would happen.
    Sonnen puts GSP on his back = Chael would either submit the French blanket or damage him enough for GSP to go into passive/safe mode, which in that case means constant retreat

    2. The fight remains in the stand-up.
    What GSP would like to do: jab and run all night.
    What actually would happen: Sonnen would overwhelm GSP with constant pressure into making mistakes, and we know GSP folds there, and the fight would eventually go to the ground [see 1.]

    GSP is the GOAT, and all the haters know it. He's finished a ton of guys, but the fact that WW is so stacked, it makes 185 look like a joke, isn't his fault. He's fighting killers, not Thales Leites, or Patrick Cote, or Bonnar, or Irvin or all these other cans in the higher divisions.

    Dumbest post of the week ^^^
    I'm not so sure. He's got some serious competition.



    No. But men who are over the hill who have seen better days and will never see a title again in their life don't count as real men.

    Chael Sonnen is a Pride legend killer. Next victim: Wanderlei Silva.

    Let me let you in on a little secret Beans. Even if you're as big of a GSP fan as I am, you have to roll with the trolls and have fun making fun. Otherwise you'll just get frustrated and get your self banned or never come back.

    Is that why he has so many rematches on his resume?

    GSP has won a UFC belt and has defended it 8 times

    Sonnen lost all 3 of his title fights.

    Excellent thread, najma. Sonnen vs. GSP anyone?

    This would be a HILARIOUS fight. You're talking about sonnen... one of the only fighters who has the ability to put GSP on his back and GSP him for 5 rounds. I'd die laughing. Oh my god, it would be good.

    Chaels wrestling > GSPs wrestling.
    the buffer 180... best move in the UFC.

    True, but GSP wouldn't beat Jones, and likely wouldn't beat Silva either.

    False.

    Dangerzone Light Heavyweight Championship (won two fights in the same night)
    Gladiator Challenge Light Heavyweight Championship (He beat Jason Lambert, who actually fought and won in the UFC so it's credible)
    And I consider him the WEC middleweight champion since Filho didn't make weight and Chael did win the fight.
