I'm sure there's actually smart people in Brazil that know Chael is only putting on a character. If he was fighting GSP he would be talking all kinds of crap about Canada. That's just his character.

Some of us are aware Sonnen is just trolling and some (especially Palmeiras soccer team fans) will support him because Silva represents Corinthians instead of Brazil.

He's one of the best BJJ practitioners in the world, he is training with the #1 contender for the UFC MW championship. Yeah, he's really a bum, he better get to work or he'll go nowhere.

It's funny how people get so caught up in the "honor" of fighting. Did still has to make money to put food on his table... just like you and me. Just because he gets paid to fight doesn't mean he should act any differently than anyone else.

The Brazilians need to stop being so butthurt.

Just gives me even more reason to want Chael to stomp Anderson.

Most people seem to have principles right up to the point that they'd actually have to work or try...

He's working for a living; he's a role model IMO.

WOW, alot of people seem to think Brazil should "chill out". Really though? I mean I am American and when I hear people bad mothing America, I tend to write them off. So I can understand that when a man continuosly clowns a Country, I think the people have a right to not only not get over it but get uptight when someone from there is associated with them.

I do think the Vinny should do it if its a paycheck, but I dont think he should be surprised that people arent happy with it. It truely is his own business but he must understand why they would be a bit upset.

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time
