SIlva is being a cry baby who cares if its Brazil or America at the end of the day its the same cage , the same guy and the same things at stake.

The only reason i can see him getting butt hurt for is because maybe he wont get a home town decision in the US like he mostly likely would in Brazil and seeing as Sonnen will probably take the fight to a decision that would benefit Silva for obvious reasons.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Im no major anderson nuthugger but he should have the right to fight in his own country after everything he has contributed to the ufc and mma. im sure anderson wanted to beat sonnen for the second time in front of his own people and make the trt abusing twat look a dick again. As it transpires he has to defend again in the u.s so why shouldnt he screw abit more dough out of dana its not as if the ufc/zuffa cant afford it.

UFC 134, Silva vs. Okami. He already got his fight at home, he needs to suck it up, stop complaining and work on his TDD.

I gotta say, I sorta understand where Anderson is coming from.

This is the, or at least one of the biggest fights of his career. The rematch everybody wants to see. Aside from the disrespect Sonnen has shown Brazil and whatnot, this could very well be Silva's last fight as he's getting up there in age.

If I was considered the best fighter on the planet, after all was said and done, I'd love nothing more then to end my career, fighting my biggest adversary, in my home town. I imagine that would truly be an honor.

I actually like Chael's brand of trash talk. It's unique. It not so much that he attacks the other guy, but rather he denies them the respect they think they deserve. If you're a humble guy, Chael's rhetoric isn't going to phase you. If your proud and have a huge ego, well, it's not going to be fun. He'll basically prod you endlessly, denying everything you believe about yourself, using well timed humor. The guy is just good at it.

Pretending to sleep during a press conference, for example. Priceless.

Anderson need's to get his act together quick. He's losing the mental game bigtime right now. And now he's no longer going to be in his own backyard with everyone having his back.

for sure man. put ourselves in his shoes. he's nearing the end of his career, he's hardly fought in his home country. he was told he could have this fight there, and then not.... id be spewing too!
