I was surprised with Chael last time and I was rooting for him but didn't think he had a chance against Anderson. This time i will also be rooting for him but i still have doubts in him beating Silva.
I was just playing with Logrus when I said that
I don't have a problem with a rematch from the standpoint of there being a possibility that Sonnen could win. Styles make fights and it wasn't surprising that Sonnen was able to get on top of Anderson and do what he did in the first fight, and it wasn't surprising that Anderson still ended up catching him. There are other technical reasons that one could argue as to why this type of immediate rematch shouldn't happen, but I personally don't have a problem with it. I say cash in while it's still hot.
I also don't hate Chael even though I openly blasted him for a lot of his comments. I have always said that I understand what he was trying to accomplish, but his methods and statements didn't always sit well with me. I also will admit that a lot of the fuel for that fire comes from other fans and their comments. Anderson Silva got tossed under the bus by many fans with a half-cocked argument about a moral high ground in relation to the sport, yet many of the same fans immediately gravitated to Chael Sonnen when he started talking. I give Sonnen a ton of credit for being a tough SOB, and at times an amusing character, but I still think that the outcome of the first fight was "poetic justice" (also kudos to Chael for laughing and saying it was just that)
