there are a lot of very wealthy people in brazil. I'm sure 80k people can shell out the money for the cost of an average UFC ticket, especially considering how strong the market is and how big of a headliner this is. The biggest rematch in UFC history will most definitely earn them a shit ton.

I'm really interested to see how UFC handles this.

I can guarantee you Sonnen will not be walking to the ring the same way 99% of fighters do.

These Brazilians are very serious about their hate for Sonnen.. to a ridiculous level.

Of course he's not, even though Sonnen's clearly just selling the fight, the people chanted "You're gonna die" at Chad Mendes and he tried to be friends with them. Sonnen's talked shit about Minotauro, Machida, Wanderlei, Vitor, Anderson, and everyone else you can think of.

...Holy smokes! That is freakin' sick! If Sonnen wins he'd better have a helicopter nearby to airlift him out of the stadium because all those crazy Brazilians might explode into a rioting frenzy. I think Anderson will put on a stunning performance and get a dominant win. He has the massive crowd, Chael will be clean and Silva will approach the fight much differently. I bet he's been working on his TDD with JDS. He'll be much more unpredictable and will most likely catch Sonnen with some wicked, unorthodox strike that will set the stage for the end. I don't see Chael taking Anderson's title on the biggest stage of the champion's career...

This will truly be an event for mma history regardless of who wins or in what fasion. As much as I want to back my boy Chael, I have to put my money on Anderson. Just a hunch. We'll see though. Either way I cant wait!

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Sonnen's problem isn't staying active. It's horrible submission defense combined with diarhea of the mouth. And if he had stalled and won he would have been stripped of the title immediately anyway.

You know for the cheating that he repeatedly lied about and never owned up to.

I'm not really sure why people think this fight is going to be close. In the first fight an injured Silva stuffed 4 of a roided up Sonnen's takedown attempts. The stars literally aligned to give Sonnen his one big chance and he still lost. And now that he isn't roiding he has looked like what he actually is - a mediocre fighter. His fight against Bisping was awful. A fight I believe he lost. If he performs like that against Silva he's done.

I think that in front of a crowd of screaming Brazilian fans we are going to see Silva remind us all why he is the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.
