- This week on UFC Tonight, middleweight/light heavyweight standout Chael Sonnen gave his thoughts on the UFN 33 main event between heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva. Though Hunt is best known for his K-1 level striking prowess and Silva has more than a few KO/TKOs on his record, Sonnen knows that there is more to this bout than stand up alone.
"These guys can do it all," he said. "It's not a classic striker-versus-grappler fight."
Still, he believes that Hunt's best chance to attain victory is to avoid the ground game with Silva, who has proven to be plenty competent with submissions and ground strikes.
"He's a devastating striker," Sonnen said of Hunt. "He's mainly a boxer. His keys are defending the takedown, attacking the body and he needs to land the power punches."
However, Sonnen is picking Bigfoot to take home the win, based mostly on his impressive resume within the division.
"I think Bigfoot Silva may be the third best heavyweight in the world, behind Cain (Velasquez) and Junior (dos Santos)," Sonnen asserted. "I like him in a landslide."
Hunt and Silva will top tonight's main card, which begins around 10:00pm ET.
