Can't comment on personal preference. I think Chael isn't that fun too watch at all. He is a wrestler, that isn't good at finishing fights and relies on his top control mostly. Props to him for being succesfull though.

Chael can't "hang" with anyone and I don't know what makes you believe that. He subbed Stann and that was his best win in a while. The Bisping fight was really close and he couldnt hang with Silva in their second fight. Also, the first fight was boring as hell if it wasn't Sonnen vs Silva, great top control and weak GnP from Sonnen. His fight vs Nate was almost 3 years ago and that was a good win. Chael wins his fights by outwrestling his opponents. Vs guys with good TDD and/or good submission skills, he is screwed.

Lyoto can hang with anyone. He lost to the best LHW ever, Jones, and to Rua, after he won a close fight against him and a questionable decision vs Page, a perrenial contender (who has fallen off a bit).


i think he can drop bombs, but unfortunately oftentimes doesn't connect with them. like in the first Silva fight where a lot of people were criticizing his finish capabilities because he dominated Silva and couldn't finish him, but if you watch that fight he's dropping ridiculous hammer fists and elbows just missing by inches. thats why i think Silva got so lucky to dodge all of those, altho i'm sure people will say it was Silva's natural awareness. altho i'll give you there is probably something to the fact that he generally hasn't been able to finish opponents by and large, i'm just saying that power is there if you really look at what he's throwing at times.

i can't stand watching Machida's constant retreat-counter standup all match. granted he's had some fights or moments where he goes toe to toe but its rare, and thats probably one of the most underrated things about Machida is his body strength when that happens. but his main fighting style is sooooo boring to me to watch where it basically forces both fighters to be feinting 3/4's of the match, because they're so scared to get countered, and Machida is going to keep backing away. hate that shit. then again i can't stand watching MAyweather fight either

i still don't believe roids were the only thing that made Chael good like a lot of his critics act. to me he's one of those white guy wrestlers you'd never want to face knowing they'll always be in tip top shape and never stop pounding or getting tired and lose that way, where you'll have to either hope you KO/sub him early or go thru hell trying to win a decision. theres a lot of fighters you're not sure how fit they're going to come in or blow their load early and it becomes a joke after that. Chael may get subbed too often, but he's as workhorse pounder as they come out of any fighter i've seen in MMA.

like i said it really depends on which game he brings since imo his A game can hang with anyone, and most suited to counter the great standup fighters like Silva and Jon Jones.

i've got 5 green stacks so you obviously aren't speaking for everyone. i also make points with reasoning in everything i state here, nor am i some lame homer fgt like you are attacking people who diss kobe/machida/whomever, nor do i attack anyone until they attack me just like now. i mind my own business and make my points, and reply sincerely to people who post towards me respectfully. like i said its always lil butthurt fgts like you that are always trying to get attention off of opinionated people like me since nobody pays attention to your bitch ass. otherwise you'd have me on ignore if i'm such a troll....to me you're just like DFish or that other butthurt fgt i can't remember now, wouldn't even be surprised if they were your alt you hide behind to attack me with. in fact it'd be typical of your lame personality here.

by all means feel free to put me on ignore even tho i bet you won't. f'n poohsee.

fedor fought three cans at the very end, but i disagree that he made a habit of it through his career. like many great fighters / boxers, he made a lot of opponents look silly in retrospect, but at the time those matches were made they were pretty much all desirable / logical matchups. also, near the end, he was greatly hampered by most of the talent being in the UFC.

Machida is boring...
i don't see how any fan of the science of fighting can say that. he brings a significantly different game to the table which is fascinating in and of itself. for me, the primary reason i'm watching MMA is to see how its possible for one man to beat another more than i am watching two guys whale on each other. if you want the latter then you can re-watch stuff like frye-takayama and be satisfied for weeks.

yup... roids didn't make him a HOF wrestler, and other than his failure to properly declare them the one time, TRT is currently an acceptable practice for aging men with decreased natural testosterone. he's not the only one to use them, but on the whole he clearly is very good at what he does. and you don't get to be the #2 MW in the world based on nothing but roids.

just wish he hadn't have been gifted the TUF slot. i mean, jones and silva -finally- seem to be coming around to the idea of a fight, but the clock is running fast and sonnen-jones just sets the whole thing back many months.

dude wants to start beefs with me out of the blue, and say i'm some troll when i'm legitimately discussing and making points without beefing with anyone, hell yeah i'm going to shit on him. especially when he's just another homer bitch here that can't handle someone he's infatuated with getting criticized. its just so typical of some of the worst posters on this forum that don't even realize how awful they are with their homerism.

its just my opinion obviously, and i can respect the arts of karate, boxing, or whatever to a degree. but after so long of seeing it, its worn on me watching his constant feint matches. again he's had some exciting moments but its few and far between.
