Nothing I've seen from Chael (of his fights I've seen) would lead me to believe he'd passively let anyone stalk him into backpedalling. So far, every fight I've seen, he's moving forward on his opponent. Isn't that what landed Anderson on his back every round in that fight.

As to "doing enough", can't the same thing be said for Georges in his fights where he's laid on someone most of the fight?

I agree with you, JB, Chael talks a lot of crap and he does go too far with it at times; but that's also what makes some of the stuff he says funny, the fact that he/it is so outrageous.

To your due though, I know you have given him credit before even though I know it must've curdled your tongue.

What Chael needs is a long spell behind bars

Agreed. It's hard to find an excuse for that. He should know better by now.

Chael done an amazing job but was still beat and I think in a rematch AS wins again.

I'd like to see Chael V Belfort.

Chael is one of the funniest dudes out there - he just lets himself down when he attacks his other fellow professionals.

That isnt cool you when the fighters are all in dressing rooms together I wonder how he feels.
