The former UFC no.1 middleweight title contender Demian Maia admits believes Chael Sonnen has a chance to beat Anderson Silva at UFC 117. He talks about how much of a dangerous fighter Sonnen can be, stating that he’ll be aggressive against Silva throughout all five rounds of their middleweight title fight.
UFC 117 is scheduled to take place at the Oracle Arena on August 7th in Oakland California. The main event will feature a middleweight title bout between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. The co-main event is a much anticipated welterweight rematch between Jon Fitch and Thiago Alves.
From Demian Maia:
“I see Anderson with a higher percentage of chances to win but I also believe very much in Chael. I remember in his fight versus Nate Marquardt everyone told he was going to lose and I said he was dangerous. I guess he got chances this time. He takes down well and owns a good stand-up base and will go towards Anderson to put him down to score points and win by decision.”
