UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen Predictions from MMA Experts and Fighters

By: Matthew Pearlman

I'm really looking forward to August 17, when Chael Sonnen (27-13-1) takes on the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Shogun Rua (21-7) in the main event of UFC on Fox Sports 1. Chael Sonnen has wins over Brian Stann, Michael Bisping, Nate Marquardt, Yushin Okami. Shogun Rua has wins over Lyoto Machida, Brandon Vera, Forrest Griffin, Chuck Liddell.

I spoke with some fighters and others in the MMA world this week - there predictions are listed below.

 

Matthew Pearlman (Author/Reporter):

You know, Chael Sonnen has amazing wrestling skills, but he can't strike well. I think Shogun will be taken down a couple of times but he will get up. I go with Shogun Rua to win by KO.

 

James Krause (UFC Fighter):

I'd bet Chael but I want Shogun.

 

TJ Grant (UFC Fighter):

Shogun, he shouldn't be a underdog in this fight.

 

Cris Cyborg (Invicta Champion)

Shogun for sure!

 

Colton Smith (UFC Fighter)

I go with Sonnen by wrestling and cage control domination.

 

Austin Trout (Former Boxing Champion)

Shogun final answer.

 

Shannon Knapp (Invicta President)

I honestly don't know! I worry about how much training Chael is doing with his hectic schedule and I have concerns with Shogun's cardio. I haven't seen any video on them training, so it is a toss for me.

 

Michael Chandler (Bellator Champion)

I have Sonnen!

 

Roland Delorme (UFC Fighter)

I'm going with Shogun.
