    Silva will take the fight. He’s had too much time to adapt to Sonnen’s game.

    Silva by way of brutal KO in the first round… i can’t believe how many ignorant fools really think Chael stands a chance of repeating his 2010 performance against an injured Silva. Not to make any excuses for Silva but at the end of the day he caught Chael and whatever hole there was in Silva’s game (talking wrestling) if u really think Silva didn’t “correct” that flaw after 1.5 year, you’re as stupid as Chael for signing on the dotted line for the rematch in Brazil….

    This is the first time a ufc fighter is going to be lowered from the ceiling in a protective harness, because there is no way in hell Chael’s walking through the crowd.

    I think a lot the fighters want Anderson to lose because of their own records in the UFC. It would make him more human and make their legacies look better. Then they can say ”see, he lost too.”. I don’t think there is a single contender or former champ who wants to admit anyone else as the best ever and will usually point the finger at the number 2 or 3 guy as the best ever to keep things contraversial.

    Silva to lose by way of bad karma for having so many fans who think making jokes about lynching people is acceptable.

    Go ahead, ‘weak’ me and increase Anderson’s karmic burden!

    Im so burn out on this crap, I dont care who wins. I dont care for either of them. And if the crowd actually attacks Chael, I would say, stay away from that uncivilized group.

    Sonnen better perform a lot better against Silva than he did against Bisping to have any chance of winning.

    Randy picked Chael to win so it’s probably a lock that Anderson is winning

    Chael throws pillows and barely marked up Andersons face last fight despite having every opportunity to do it. So that tells me his only chance to win is to hold Anderson on the ground for 5 rounds and play safe which is the least entertaining outcome I can think of.
    Go Silva!

    Respect. Chael says ridiculous things about most fighters and everybody thinks he’s funny. Silva does most of his talking in the cage, and everybody hated him. Bias…

    Kinda ironic that the video is sponsored by “CheaterVille: Don’t go down without a fight!” and that perfectly describes Silva Sonnen 1.

    Styles make fights and Sonnen is Silva’s kryptonite…at least the closest someone can be to that.

    Only 39 “weaks”? That’s a bit disappointing. The Spider needs more karmic debt!

    In all fairness, if there is a skill set that Bisping might have better than Silva, it is his wrestling. Who would’ve thought before the Sonnen fight that they’d look about even in that category?

    Silva dances in front of Chael, then Silva gets taken down.

    Its weird how people get ****y just because they back the best striker in MMA.

    1; Anderson is going to destroy Sonnen in under two rounds.
    2; Has anyone else noticed that Kongo looks like a college professor outside of the cage/gym.
