Hah, Chael's face is priceless
Looks like he is really scared of Wand.
Chael ain't scared of Wand or anybody. He just gave due respect to an icon of the sport. Further, the context wasn't one where he can should fire back...We fans and so called experts of the sport have a bad tendency to belittle, ridicule, and vilify fighters who were our heroes yesterday. Once they fall down (even once, after a defeat or a personal trouble we deem disgraceful) , we turn 180 degrees against them. This is an uneducated way to see things...I don't condone what Chael did by breaking the rules and taking illegal substances nor have I ever been fan of his ranting diatribes and verbal attacks, but I believe he's an awesome fighter who can defeat anyone in the MW division...I'm sure he'll come back even stronger and claim his spot in the division and the sport....................
Maybe he wasn't scared. Steroids do boost your confidence. That's a fact.
Let me ask you this. What would you think of Chael if you knew he was taking steroids in the first place? Would you still like him? Would you still respect him? If not, why is it not ok to do a 1a8
i dont really understand your point borealis.....did he give his respect? or did he just not have an opportunity to fire back with a comment?.....my biggest problem with sonnen is that after taking the opportunity (on his own, it was not a retaliation) to disrespect many legends of mma, as well as other sports, i.e. lance armstrong.....he ended up being a cheater himself. if he never opened his mouth, it would not be such a big deal to me. i cant stand that he put himself on a pedestal and claimed he is better than everyone, and that everyone else sucks....if that was true, why do you need steroids?
i wouldnt be scared of anyone either if i took steroids. ^_^
180? Sorry. Stupid touch screen. Grr.
Whether Chael was scared or not Wand sounds like an old school mobster. That may be the smoothest threat I have ever heard.
I'll tell you one thing...If Wandelei walks into the dressing room and country music is playing and he asks him to turn it off...Chael will.
He better or he'll lose all his teeth XD
wand is the man!!!
Sounds like some kind of mob threat to me.
LAUGHING MY F---- A-- OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHAEL's FACe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hE DID not know what the f--- that came from!!!!!!!
Haha damn that had me dying! !!
If you dont give respect you lose your teeth? How is that gonna convince Sonnen that Brazil isnt indeed a place where you dont get mugged? lol
And Chael just sitting there saying "Sure" "while thinking -- alright whatever Wandy...ill say whatever i want, this is America...we dont believe in respecting each other
Silva vs Sonnen sounds like a headliner to me!!!!!!
Yeah... Kidnapping, assassinations, horrible street violence, it is getting bad in Brazil, and it's not disrespectful to acknowledge that. No more than it would be for Wand to discuss the horrible crime rates in our urban areas. Brazil is much worse off though, a lot of innocent people are being victimized.
He wasn't acknowledging that, he was talking crap about the fighters from there, and using it as fuel to further promote his own agenda.
chael looked like he shit his pants
clearly he didnt. when do you see fighters really scared of another fighter? and scared of a guy on a big downward slope? really? wand in pride=scary, vicious guy. wand now=teddy bear who will challenge for nothing. im sure sonnen was really shitting his pants!!
chael looked like a piece of shit, he finally got his mouth shut
Chael is a DOUCHE BAG.....and sorry but alot of vacation place are big on crime Paris or Europe for that matter is almost as bad crime wise is
but isnt 3rd world so doesnt get the stigma.....
and Chael with all his talk on Lance and giving himself cancer, when
most likely the only time Lance took roids was to fight cancer, but the time and money he gives to help cancer families and you have Sonnen that only does chit to help him look good.....and I use to like the guy
1. was this before or after the Q&A-Session where Sonnen referred to Wanderley as "who used to be a fighter"?
2. sonnen: "thats intimidating".... makes sense in retrospective
3. white: "that's your future" ..... PRICELESS
Dana to meet with Obama?!
Man, Sonnen is full of BS. He thinks hes tough and all but I assure you if they were to fight in a real fight, in a street fight out of rings and referees, Silva would kill Sonnen, literally kill him...
For a guy like Wanderlei to be upset with trash talk, shows us how disrespectful Sonnen comments are. In the US were used to it, we find it funny and the sarcasm is very clever. Outside the US, hes just a douche talking offensive shit for no reason whatsoever...
Maybe it was the steroids talking
silva: you need chu respect brazil
sonnen: thank you for watching!
wanderlie should have popped him in the mouth right there
yea, wanderli would have decked him right then and there. and we all would have seen it.
Sometimes people can be so dumb ,some cheer trash talking losers and boo real champions with class.
LOL @ the nuthuggers saying Sonnen looked afraid ect. It's pretty obvious Sonnen was addressing Silva like most people do when they encounter a person with a mental handicap. You give small one word answers to their rambling out of being polite.
Sonnen actually tried to rebut Silva by telling flat out, "NO" Brazil IS like he said it was but all you seen was that spaced out look in Silva's eyes. Hence, just say anything and get out of that no where conversation.
BTW, is that a "French Tickler Silva" is wearing on his head?
Poor bastard, like so many aged, out of touch MMA fighters, he walks around like he is still relevant and in the title contention but is nothing more than a gate keeper.
Yeah because a guy who can coherently take disrespect about someone talking crap about someone he knows are respects and confronting the trash talker is very mentally challenged. If he's that mentally challenged, then what does that make you?
yeah... who say that bigboy...:-D i want to see your face if you stand infront of wanderley... ok he is no more in his prime but... come on..
wanderly is a beast i think everybody thinks twice about fighting him..
cause once you are in the cage whit this guy he truely trys to kill you!! :-D i love wanderley.. eaven with his ugly hat! ;-)
Great speak about respect from Silva. Kinda hard to believe thats the same axe murder from pride days that would stomp people.
He was always respectful, in a violent murderous kind of way ^^
you take too much time to write just to get WEAKED for being a Sonnen homosexual
He's a charming, sweet & generous man.
Unless hes across the octagon from you.
.......then the true axe murderer is unleashed
hahahah ****in hilarious.. Silva is the man! :-D
sonnen s face is priceless... maybe it wasnt eaven a thret.. but.. i think nobody in this world (not eaven a overconfident chael sonnen) wants to be in a ****in van with a pissed wanderley silva in his face..
thats a scary situation! i think he had to change his pants after that...:-D
Chael: "Ive already got 1/2 my fan base turning on me, the last thing I need is to fight with Wanderlei and maybe even get booted from the UFC".................................................................
That would be along what I percieve.
Yeah, Fuk you capjo
Wand looks really happy, its lame we all talking about Chael even tho he was only in 20% of the flick.
Haha Chael serves you right XD
Wanderlei is the Man.
"We have a saying in Brazil - people who talk too much disrespect lose their teeth" Ha! Priceless! Is that actually their saying? Wand was spot on with what he said. It is one thing hyping the fight and another disrespecting decent people who have entertained us for a decade and done as much as anyone for the sport. Still like Chael though. Hopefully he comes back clean and ready to make another run for the title.
wand is a strait up cool guy no bs everytime i watch one of these blogs it puts a smile on my face
