					UFC Betting - Sonnen may not be enough, even with
full mouth.


August's UFC 117 is highly expected to be more of

a comeback fight for middleweight champion

Anderson Silva, after being booed and criticized

sourly in his last title defense with Demian Maia.

President Dana White spoke up displeased right

after the fight, and thought of Chael Sonnen to make Silva a hungry dog again.



The lead up to the fight is stinky, with Sonnen's loud mouth criticizing Silva and friends. He

even laughed at the Spider's jiu jitsu black belt, saying having one from the Noguiera's is no

big deal. He's hyped up, as well as the UFC betting grounds going to the fight. But the real

question is not for Silva sharpening his killer instincts again, but for Sonnen's ability to rob

Silva of his gold.



Surely, Sonnen has won fights against elite fighters and even won a championship match in

his route in the WEC middleweight division. When WEC disbanded the division after he won

the title against a winded Paulo Filho, he shifted to the UFC and thought of having a

"12-pound gold" around his waist.



But his entry was spoiled by UFC 112 championship contender Demian Maia, who submitted

him via triangle choke and completely gave the bragging rights to Maia in fighting Silva

again. Sonnen won 3 consecutive decision victories over Dan Miller, Yushin Okami, and Nate

Marquardt, finally getting his second title shot as a UFC fighting machine.



Sonnen has his Greco-Roman wrestling background slung on his shoulders, which may not

be that dangerous for Silva, after he defeated Pride middleweight champion and top
wrestler Dan henderson. Other than that, Sonnen has nothing else but his loud mouth and

his promise to knock Silva out, as punishment and to take the UFC middleweight

championship.



Silva is expected to meet his reckoning, even after 12 consecutive wins, when Dana White

established his willingness to cut Silva off UFC if he ever showed up with those tactics again.

With this, the Spider will be forced to brawl and explode on Sonnen. Expect a nonstop war

when they meet.



The UFC fight schedule was already finalized and released this week, and will have former

two-time champion and hall of famer Matt Hughes square off with Gracie jiu jitsu black

belter Ricardo Almeida to underline the fight.
