Arona is now chilling with carmen sandiego and waldo.....he was right about it suiting his style big time, with no yellow cards to worry about and a cage to back people into he would have been devastating. Who knows though maybe he'll pop out of the wood work at some point, would make for many interesting match ups.
Speaking of yellow cards they really need to think about bringing that to the UFC in some fashion.
silva should be used to chael by now and know his game, I really don't think he will make the same mistake twice.
But the main reason why they should let knees back in, is that it changes the whole ground game and it makes it a bit more hepatic and less boring. It's a risky move were if you go for it you either get it, or you dont and lose positioning because you really have to shift your weight pretty high and far to put any power into it, if you miss or its off even while your trying to go for it you will get turned or swept, pretty much all the wrestlers in the UFC would not use it because of that reason. But the strikers or others would use it, and it would make the ground fighting more exiting with less blanketing going on, I think it would make it more a back and fourth thing instead of the blanketing we see now most fighters do.
if that Sonnen shows up to fight Anderson, Anderson will dominate.

You may be right about Silva not preparing for Chaels style. I used to think he was making it his priority to prepare for that but it seems he may have thought he wouldn't be fighting him again. Surely now he will train specifically for Sonnens style. For the average fighter, starting now may be too late but I think Anderson is the exception and will be thoroughly prepared this time. Plus you know Segal's gonna show him the secret on how to beat Chael!
Either way, it will be a huge fight and I look forward to it.
