Not all USA fight fans back Sonnen. Me personally, I was impressed at how he took it to Silva, but I have to throw that out because he needed 'roids to do it. And Brian Stann was no way ready for a wrestler of that calibre.
That said, a lot of Americans do like trash-talkers, especially if they back it up. The guy knows what to say to sell a fight. (Remember after the GSP-Koscheck fight, GSP said he didn't take the things Koscheck said personally, he said what he felt was needed to help sell the fight. It's part of the game.)
Now, if Silva puts out his Sonnen's light 90 seconds into round 1, watch the Sonnen fans disappear.
But I get the feeling the guy just offends you. Not my problem. Sonnen doesn't make the USA look bad. He makes assholes look bad. Me, I'm from New Jersey. So for my money, Frankie Edgar makes the USA look pretty good.
