If it is true then it explains why he died after 5 minutes against Silva in the second fight. I think the UFC big up all their numbers tbh, they deffo do it with the fighters height stats. And for Dolce to be doing an interview wearing a Dolce Diet T'shirt makes me take everything he says with a pinch of salt as it's in his interests to exaggerate the amount of weight he can cut off a guy in a short space of time. Those interviews were basically info-mercials.

Grappling - Sonnen is a better wrestler , but Forrest has a much improved JJ game , he is the better JJ practitioner here IMO

Difficult to see anything but a Sonnen UD , should be an entertaining fight at least
griffins chin looked shocking against Tito. Every solid punch that landed he went down. This is the only reason I think Sonnen might be able to stop him.

You must surely know that Jones is significantly naturally heavier than Sonnen. Could Jones continually make 185 like Sonnen does? Please. Could Sonnen be talking about becoming a 230-240lbs heavyweight within the next 2 years? Double-please. These "walkaround" weights that get bandied about on messageboards are almost always wildly inaccurate. People need to calm down.

Yep

Come to think about it his chin did look shocking , the longer Sonnen chooses to engage Forrest on the feet the more he gives Forrest an edge in actually implementing his game (Forrest)

Its not beyond the realms of possibility that Sonnen catches him on the feet , but if im thinking Sonnen stoppage im thinking GnP more than i am a TKO on the feet , but quite right you never know

They have very different body types, but they still walk around at around the same weight. All I'm saying is that Sonnen is regarded as one of the biggest MW's in the UFC.

I thought he walked around closer to 215.

I don't remember where I saw it, but I know that I saw somewhere that he has weighed as high as 230 between fights. I don't know how much he lets himself go when he isn't in a camp, mind you. Either way, he is still big and he will look physically fine at LHW. Possibly better than he did at MW. Forrest is one of the biggest LHW's out there, though.

He'll have to take his PEDs for this one.

They are both on TRT which is a PED. Quite laughable that you have two fighters openly admit they are on it, the fight can be made and the majority of people dont see a problem with either of them.

Agree completely I meant more that the deteriation in his punch resistance might make it possible for Feather fist sonnen to force a stoppage.

He's definitely bigger, don't know about better just yet. He is a better wrestler, however, and that is what Chael used so well against Silva for 6 rounds. Sonnen would be destroyed.
