    There rumors on the internet that Chael is going to retire after his loss to Silva. I hope its not true. Chael still has a lot to prove and accomplish inside the octagon. I would not rule out a third fight between the two if Chael is able to beat the other top contenders in the division.

      Chael without elevated T levels barely won the fight against Bisping.
      He has stated he wouldn’t want a fight against Munoz because Munoz won some wrestling championship he did not. He’s a great fighter obviously but he’s not going to improve enough or be able to do the drugs he needs to be champ.

    Would like to see Sonnen become champ. Unfortunately I don’t see it happening. Guy is 35 and just lost, 2-3 more fights then another shot at the title?

    TKD, die of gonorrhea and rot in hell!

    Hey Rube… would TKD have to find your mom to catch that gonorrhea??
