As soon as he loses he will be just like kimbo slice used up and No more hype/money left to be made. And another UFC fighter back to an undercard promotion.
Sounds like you have paper thin skin, he didn’t make any “racist” comments or offend an entire country he was hyping his game using some satire and wit, seemingly a lost art.
Watch the GRACIE fight breakdown (not sure if you know who they are, they happen to be from Brazil) and they even acknowledge that Sonnen is a cool guy who hypes fights and adds drama to make things interesting.
Sonnen has said on numerous occasions he likes Brazil and recommends training there, want a tissue?
Anyone who has ever met or trained with Sonnen will tell you he is a generous laid back guy.
I prefer quite fighters who let their game do the talking (Fedor, Randy, Hendo, Cormier, etc.) but I think MMA would lose some of its color without people like Sonnen.
I can’t blame him for wanting to make more money and get on the main card, his antics outside the cage have made him even more famous (or infamous) and you can’t deny the guy is more than just talk, who in the UFC has given Andy such a battle? Or dominated Okami, Stann and Marquart so completely?
People constantly bash Americans and no one is crying about it, you know we’ll be the first on the scene after the next Tsunami, Earthquake, famine, civil war, etc.
