    Uncle Shale might have dominated all 5 like the first Anderson fight but without the choke from the bottom as Izzy looked lost on his back...

    Sonnen by decision. Izzy has nothing to offer on his back.

    Chael dominates. Not even up for debate. Genderbender is useless off his back and can't wrestle to save his life. Also uncle has never lost a round and will never lose a round in real life nor in any fantasy match you come up with. I'm glad I'm talking about uncle in my first post on this new account lol.

  7. Circa 2011 Sonnen? I can't see him losing that fight, not with how relentless he was for takedowns back then.. He would've found a way to get Israel on the mat and keep him there.

    Uncle Chael would absolutely dominate Adesanya on the ground, my money would be on Sonnen by decision.

    USADA or pre-USADA? Chael couldn't even hack the old joke commission test, Gynobender beats WADA with ease. Run circles around Shael in the PEDs department.

    Probably Chael. He hunted those takedowns and would have dragged Izzy to the mat and laid on him.

    I agree, but I wouldn't say Izzy has 'nothing' to offer from his back. He was able to hit a triangle sweep on Kelvin, for example. I think if he were taken down by the majority of the middleweight roster, Izzy would be able to quickly get back to his feet.

    Prime Sonnen, on the other hand, is one of the best top-control artists in MW history. I highly doubt Adesanya would be able to threaten him enough from bottom.
