    OMG, his trash talk used to be entertaining but now this is becoming a total pain in the ass. Looks like he’s trying to follow Tito’s footsteps and become the biggest whining, grumbling and bitching douchebag in MMA. Oh to see a fight between the ‘karate guy’ and this asshole so we can see Sonnen have his head kicked in.

    I see what you’re saying. I initially enjoyed the smack talk because to me he appeared to be someone who specifically didn’t like Silva’s antics and wanted to shut him up. You know, like a man of the people who is ready to fight the good fight, or some shit like that. Now that I’ve seen more, seems like he’s just shotgunning smack to see what sticks. Less enjoyable now.

    You guys gotta admit, we need a Chael right now, even if you hate him.
    I personally think he’s always been an outspoken individual. Anyone who says exactly what they are thinking will piss you off until you get to know them and give it back to them the same way.
    Im a little bit like that as well if you’ve seen my comments, I dont hide something because it might hurt someones feelings.
    Because no-one hid them from me.

    See this is what happens when you give a nobody the spotlight for a little while….. He has made a complete idiot out of himself. Like they say, give somebody enough rope and they’ll hang themselves. This guy will never succeed in any of his current endeavors. He will get embarrassed in the octagon against Silva, go no where in politics, and then hopefully be forced into a grudge match with Rampage so he can see what the LHW division is all about. To people that say, “He is speaking the truth” or “Whats on his mind,” then whats your take on the belligerent things that have started to come outta his mouth at this point? I think more ppl liked him at first because they were mad at Silva for 112 and liked how Sonnen was being so forthcoming about it, but now its like…… Who the f*ck is this guy?

    Sonnen would never ever ever fight for the title in the Light Heavy Weight division, and that Karate guy would knock him out just like Anderson Silva is going to. If he thinks he’s not an arrogant jerk now, I would hate to see what he thinks it is. It’s not going to happen because he doesn’t have a snowflake’s chance in hell of beating Mr. Silva. Guys he has little or no chance of beating at 205: Evans, Rampage, Machida, Shogun, Griffin, Liddell. He probably wouldn’t even beat Tito, he’s just a smaller version. What a jackass- Oregon Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for selecting this guy.

    and its a fresh air to the ufc ! but this time he went to far,
    trying to make the 205 division sound weak to hype himself and his fight with Anderson

    when its obviously the 205 division is the most stacked one!

    I see an up-set in the making, in this fight; they do happen – Matt Serra/GSP Frankie Edgar/BJ Penn.

    Sonnen dominated a man that was billed as one of the most well rounded middleweights in the world (Nate Marquardt). He also beat Paulo Fihlo in the WEC, although Paulo was not in an ideal mental or physical state due to challenges making weight. Sonnen has great wrestling that has been refined for MMA, outstanding conditioning, and passable standup. Obviously, Silva is one of the best strikers in the sport, irrespective of weight class. Certainly, Fihlo and Marquardt are not. Styles make fights, and this is a great match-up. My big question is this: When Anderson is on his back, is his BJJ truly all that good? If so, Chael has had challenges with submission defense in the past.

    While clearly innapproriate, Sonnen’s comments are clearly designed to hype a fight and get into Anderson’s head. I’m not justifying them, only explaining them. While I’m NOT a republican, prior posts offering generalizations based on party lines are far worse than Sonnen’s. At least he has a reason, irrespective of the lack of substance in his comments, for making such ill-guided comments.

    Well put. I think the insanity part is what makes him successful. A higher percentage of mad dog personality than most. Quite frankly, Silva isn’t all that stable either. Everyone who practices this sport is a bit unhinged (myself included).

    There is nothing stopping Chael from gaining muscle mass over the year and stepping up to dominate next year what he believes is a joke of a division. I wish one of these interviewers would call him on some of the crazy stuff he says.

    Anderson Silva sure will, only it will be his fists talking.

    I’ve been saying the same thing, if I was somewhere where I could get a microphone and pull his bullshit card I would and not just nod my head and say “yeah kick his ass Sea Bass” when we know damn well he’s going to get murdered and would get it just as bad at 205…in this world there’s the talkers and the doers…how much has Anderson talked and how many guys has he made look like amateurs? Same for the guys he ripped on at 205, and look at Sonnen how many guys has he destroyed compared to talk about what he would do or how he doesnt like this or that? Yeah…he’ll be done when he has to fight Anderson because it’s a fight not a debate or a junior high cafeteria

Look how much everyone hates him. He’s being the villain, and it will do wonders for his career. People want to see him fight, even if it’s because they want to see him lose. Win win for him.

    Personally, I like Chael Sonnen. He is an egomaniac and the only thing he is trying to do with every comment is get noticed and build himself up. Regardless if u like him or not, he is doing exactly what he wants and that is getting a lot of attention. He don’t care if it’s positive or negative. And if u don’t believe me, go look at any interview he has done, and look at how many comments they have. It don’t matter if u r just commenting because you think he’s a jerk, or an idiot, his name is still crossing you’re mind, and the more he pisses you off, the more u are going to want to watch him get his ass kicked. Good strategy Sonnen. The more people hate him, the more people talk about him, the bigger his name gets. And it’s exactly what he is trying to do

    Anderson has behaved strangely in more than just the Maia fight. There are times he has exhibited over the top show-boating, as well as not showing up fully conditioned for fights. Part of it may be that he’s that damn good, and can get away with it. Note moving up in weight class: beating Irvin is one thng, dominating Griffin is another. That being said, Dana’s frustration appears to extend beyond Andersons behavior during and following the Maia fight. There is SOMETHING else going on.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love watching Silva’s striking. I am primarily a stand-up guy by training (TKD and muay thai), and he is one of a handfull of top fighters I actually like to watch in this regard. I want to see him beat, then come back and continue being dominant. I suspect part of him is bored.
