I'm wary of picking against you though Rek, as I remember you were right about Nog beating Schaub when everyone was laughing at the chances of that happening (am I remembering this rightly?), so I will reserve my judgement on this one.
I actually disagree with him. I think Sonnen will be refreshed and stronger, better stamina at 205. He will lose to Jones & Machida, probably Shogun.....but I think he will dominate Griffin. It will be a grapple ****. Forrest will probably gas in the 3rd and be stopped or subbed in the 4th.
Forrest was gassed against Tito. Chael currently is a level above tito, and a few levels above him in wrestling.
