U got nothing to brag about u crack head? Log in to Reply OhBoy July 11, 2012 Regardless of Chael’s hater-fan-club; he’s done to Anderson what NO other fighter has been able to do in the UFC. Log in to Reply kljlsjsldf July 11, 2012 He should drop to 170 and face GSP or Condit. He’ll be a wreck ball there. Log in to Reply ThatDude July 11, 2012 Anderson changed Chael’s aspect. Now he Has nothing to go off of. He Has to respect the Champ. They All do Log in to Reply peruviannecktie July 11, 2012 Chael’s a smart guy. All that trash talk was just to hype the fight, which he did with great success. It just went way too far. Moral of the story: don’t piss off the GOAT. Log in to Reply bronx27 July 11, 2012 Chael ate a HUGE piece of HUMBLE PIE, which he NEEDED BIGTIME!! Hey OhBoy, none of that matters, because Chael LOST TWICE!!! Chael is a LOSER!! He’ll NEVER be a Champ as long as Anderson Silva is ALIVE!! He can SPIN in ANY WAY he wants, the “FACT” is that he LOST TWICE to a guy he hates to admit is WAAAAAAAYYYYYYY BETTER than him and EVERYONE ELSE for that matter!!!!!! Losing seems to be a WAY-OF-LIFE for Chael !! “NOONE” Remember’s LOSERS in LIFE!!! And that’s EXACTLY what Chael is a ****in LOSER!!! SO GET-OVER-IT with looking for EXCUSES as to WHY he lost, and ACCEPT THE FACT that he LOST LOST LOST LOST LOST LOST LOST LOST!!!! PERIOD!!!!! There’s NO OTHER WAY to spin it Chael Fans!!! Chael is a L O S E R !!!!!!!!!!!! PERIOD!!!! Log in to Reply MMA is taking over July 11, 2012 I’ve grown to like chael a lot more. After the fight ended, I knew he wasn’t going to complain about anything. I appreciated some stuff he said before the fight about how no one should feel 100% training for a cage fight, cuz even the nature of the training is dangerous. One time I read a long interview chael did and could not believe how humble and respectful and knowledgable he was. I think there is “camera chael” and “real chael”. (he probably realized the more crazy he talked, the more he got noticed and paid). Also saw the interview with eddie bravo where chael was high, sooooo good, check it out. Log in to Reply ultimate fighter July 11, 2012 anderson silva has weaknesses against really slow asian fighters with mediocre grappling Log in to Reply dreameracer1 July 11, 2012 remember he was invited to Anderson’s backyard grill for patty cake up, so Sonnen has to be nice. oh! plus he made ufc president a very happy man, cus of a large lump in his purse they landed on ppv just like what Manny P did to boxing on his last fight. Log in to Reply PitfighterZ July 11, 2012 Chael is now relegated to be the Krotcheck of the MW division. He will be the measuring stick to anyone trying to get a title shot. He will probably never get a title shot again just like Kos. In many ways, he is now the champs’ shield. It’s a sad and humbling position. However, saying he sucks or anything like that is only bad rhetoric. He earned his shot twice. He is a good wrestler and can give trouble to most fighters in the division. Log in to Reply LOL July 11, 2012 @bronx27 – Why you raging so much? Seems like you are trying to convince yourself of something. I didn’t care for his Trash talking either. It’s nice to see that he accepts defeat without making excuses. Log in to Reply fighter July 11, 2012 I got more respect for Chael after this fight! Log in to Reply Dan Blankenship July 11, 2012 Love him or hate him, he is the only one to give Silva 5 rounds of fighting he’ll never forget. He’s also quite entertaining. Log in to Reply pillowhands July 11, 2012 I never liked him but Im impressed that he doesnt whine and complain after a loss like allot of fighters do. Log in to Reply phil July 11, 2012 I seriously hated this guy… but respect for this interview… unexpected. want to see him fight again soon. who though? Stan again, Bisping again or a bottom runger… no good for his future… he needed this win quite badly… chael is going to lose some credibility with this loss. Log in to Reply wow July 11, 2012 As much as it pleases me that Sonnen was beaten again by the best, i do think he would be a great replacement for Goldberg as a UFC commentator, like really.. He has a way of speaking, aint no Spider though, Log in to Reply HatersGonnaHate July 11, 2012 I see a lot of trash talk about Chael’s bluster leading up to the fight. Listen Chael did an outstanding job of hyping the fight. It broke Las Vegas all time live gate for an MMA card. The PPV numbers were probably outstanding … Anderson Silva should pray that they let him fight Sonnen all the time. Silva’s the least marketable champion in the UFC and he just made the most money he’s probably made in his life. He can thank Chael P Sonnen. Log in to Reply failsonnen July 11, 2012 kljlsjsldf – Drop to 170? Are you crazy? Didn’t you see how drained he looked at 185?? Log in to Reply Uriah's Chin July 11, 2012 Chael made the UFC,Silva, Las Vegas, and anyone involved more $$$$ than they ever made on any single event. They all love the guy no matter what you see in front of the camera. The guy did his job, showed up, fought hard, and made ZERO excuses. All the hate for him like the loser from the Bronx are just immature ignorant little punks. Silva is a beast. Log in to Reply Danby July 11, 2012 If chael hadn’t pulled an Arlovski, he still may have won that fight. Anderson was much better in the guard this time. It probably would have come down to who had the better gas tank. That being said, he beat him again and this time convincingly. Mr. Silva is one of the greatest. Chaels been really the only one who’s ever almost BEATEN anderson silva. I don’t mean those japanese fighters who pulled wacky submissions out of no where, i mean actually beaten him. Im sure anderson will never forget that lesson. There is always some one out there that can beat you. Log in to Reply psxdogg July 11, 2012 lmao @ Humble Pie, that’s true Log in to Reply anderson cheats July 11, 2012 karateforyuass,your such a fag! your boy anderson sure knows how to grease down before a fight and cheat to win,the only way he can win i guess. Log in to Reply anderson cheats July 11, 2012 They didnt mention anderson holding on to the the shorts or greasing. Log in to Reply Thxer July 11, 2012 Lol, the guy gives a great and humble interview and still gets slammed by haters. Usually, by the same people that talk about how stupid it is to be a hater on Anderson. Herpa durr. Both of those guys are amazing fighters and deserve the utmost respect. Log in to Reply AznPersuasion July 11, 2012 @Danby “wacky submission out of no where” If you watched that fight you would see that ryo chonan was already gonna win that fight by decision and pulled that submission off at the end. Log in to Reply jdogg July 11, 2012 Chael beat himself with trying that spinning elbow. Ask Uriah Faber where his last spinning elbow got him. Another example is andre arlovski trying the flying knee vs Fedor, see where that got him? KO’d. Blind techniques almost always end badly in MMA. No telling how this fight would have turned out had he not tried such a careless move. Log in to Reply T'Challa July 11, 2012 Chael lovers have nothing to say, he let them all down AGAIN, and all they can do is cry about “greasing” and “illegal knees”. Chael Sonnen = gate keeper ala Koscheck. As long as Silva is the champ he will never get another shot at the title. I always hear mentioned that Chael “almost beat” Silva and gave him his “toughest test” in the first fight, but you all forgot that even if he won, he would have been stripped of the title for his elevated T/E levels. Great talker, mediocre fighter.. Log in to Reply CHAYLE July 11, 2012 @OhBoy anybody who has anything good to say about CHAYEL is an idiot. this reject got caught with TRT in his first fight with silva, got caught laundering money for his house, and then says some of the most disrespectful, basically racist, bs for 2 years straight. then gets TKFO in 2nd round ez. He shouldn’t be giving advice on”what we should do with illegal calls” and how to “respond to losing”. He should stfu and let silva take him out in the back to go put this animal down. Disgusting. Look at his face. Slimey garbage. Go listen to him talk for another 10 minutes u idiot. I would enjoy beating this crackhead with a brazilian 2×4. Could hear the noises he would be making already. Log in to Reply Cyclone July 11, 2012 @bronx27@CHAYLE Must be the same guy.. Lets see now..Anderson greases up before the fight,Shoulder bumps Chael During weigh-in,Holds on to the fence to throw an illegal knee. Chael made the world go around and around..not Cheater “Long arms” Anderson. Log in to Reply basrutenlives July 11, 2012 Brazilian 2×4? Lame dude…just lame Log in to Reply Yazz July 11, 2012 Chael lostt Silva won, why are you bitching and making excuses for chael when he himself has not complaint about short grabbing or silva’s knee. grow up you haters and shut the **** up. Log in to Reply mmaforever July 12, 2012 Chael is really a journeyman, just look at his record. he has done exceedingly well to get as far as he did, its down hill for him from now on im afraid. He is very bright and even got a book out of these fights. Guy is a quote machine and used well to his advantage. I am more impressed at his ability in hyping a fight than his actual fighting skills, to be fair. Credit to him though, wish him best of luck in whatever he chooses to do.
