Chael Sonnen wins this fight based on one fact – he has never lost due to a KO or TKO. When a guy fights 30 times and never losses in that way he probably never will. Because of that fact alone and the fact that Chael has a unmatched desire to suceed – Chael wins.

Becsuse of the fighter Chael is, It severely limits the ways Anderson can win the fight. It limits him to a surprise submission and how often do those happen? Submissions are generally the end after one guy gives up (getting beat up on the ground and rolls over resulting in a rear naked choke) but Chael will not be on his back in this fight. It’s just a bad matchup up for Anderson who is the better fighter but not in case. I realize that some of this is reaching but this is what I believe. Chael wins. Bet the house.
