2. I think Sonnen plays the morality card a bit too much considering how condescending he comes off at times. You don't have to be a "gang-banger" to talk about respect, and just because Silva busts his hat to the side don't make him ghetto.

I will believe it when I see it.

All too often, promoters in general, and especially Dana, tell the fans what he thinks they want to hear even if he knows it's a blatant lie.

Wasn't it just last year that ANYBODY who worked with EA sports on their MMA game would NEVER fight in the UFC again? Then he still went after Fedor, and Randy is still fighting with the company.

Don't let him fool you, he will do what is best for the company's bottom line or the Fertita's will find somebody else who will. If that meant cutting Silva, then so be it, but I find that scenario HIGHLY unlikely.

I think GSP and Jon Jones both beat Silva.
