    Why would we? He fucking owned Sonnen last time. Hopefully this time he just snaps the arm off

    Submitting someone in the first round is pretty much owning them. Maybe this time Sonnen can whine some more that Filho is out

    post-pride filho has been very disappointing for me
     
  6. I think Filho's poor showings have just been because he's been matched up with very strong wrestlers for the first time in his career. He is still good on the ground and everything, but he hasn't been able to take them down and work his game.

    Prior to this he just crushed everyone with the EXACT SAME game every time. If you match him up against someone that isn't as strong a wrestler, that he can take down at will, he'll look just as dominant. He doesn't look any smaller or less powerful, so I think the roids angle is way overblown.
     
  7. Did you miss the first round of the fight and only see the second?

    Even in the second round Sonnen was beating filho up a good bit before he got caught.

    I'll take Filho, he'll quit coming in and trying to bang. He'll have something to prove this time. He'll come in, take Sonnen down and break his arm off.
     
  9. he wasn't trying to bang, he was FORCED to.
