Chael Sonnen thinks Republicans don't do submissions.

Don't get me wrong, I like the Sonnen fight, but I think the GSP fight has more attached to it.

I don't really see Silva pursuing welter-weight at this point of his career. It doesn't get any easier to cut and he has already hinted at wanting to test himself at higher weights. I think they should set a catchweight without it being a title match for a fight between Silva and GSP or Georges should move up in weight to 185.
Absolutely....agree.

I don't see any point in Silva coming down unless it's a title match. If he wins, he'll be the first to have held 3 different weight classes as champion (as far as I know); that would be a big notch on his record. I wonder if Georges is reluctant about this fight since Silva is the one coming down to fight him. I think it would have been better for GSP to go up to 185. It will look worse "if" he loses to Silva at 170 than at 185--see what I mean?

It's kinda funny, watching Silva vs Forrest and he did a lot of the same things he did vs Maia in round 2.

Sonn will drop just like Hendo did, well either that or he will ghost tap and say he never did...

Whats up with Belfort, he still messed up or something?
