Good to know...
Both are crimes, it's just your interpretation of the law. White collar crimes happen all the time and are serious. If you want to get technical, explain why Folyd got 90 days in jail for beating his girlfriend, Donte Stallworth (nfl player) got 30 days for killing a man with his car while drunk, Mike Vick get 23 months for setting up a dog fighting ring and lying to the judge.

If you were to judge these offense which one would the worst? Probably Donte,then Folyd,Then Vick. However the sentence says otherwise. Chael Sonnen faced up 10 years in prison. Under law that is a serious offence, don't you find it funny you can commit a crime that cause someone harm and receive a lesser sentence than perjury carries?

If you jaywalk you are kind of asking for it. It isn't like he ran up onto the sidwalk or some shit. I would say Floyd, Vick, and then Stallworth since the first two were actively attempting violence against another living being. Even though Stallworth was wrong for drinking and driving it didn't necessarily even cause the incident.

I thought it was fake at first. I wouldn't be surprised if Silva wrecks Sonnen early... and I'm a Sonnen fan.

Than again, I thought that the first time too. This is going to be one of the few fights that I will actually be nervous for before it starts. I love those fights.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Ya man, the first fight was an emotional roller coaster.My heart rate was racing through out the fight. At one point i think i herd it beating through the noise. The second fight should be the same, if Silva loses i would be disappointed.

As great as he is, he will eventually lose because all great things come to an end at some point. I just hope its not to Chael Sonnen. In all seriousness as good as Chael is he is a boring ass fighting to be honest.

Firstly, I agree. I would be disappointed if a maggot like Sonnen is the one to dethrone the uber-Jedi demigod funk-master.

Secondly, Chael Sonnen is not boring. I enjoyed his grinding of Marquart, Okami and Silva. The fight against Bisping was a cracking encounter. Plus, he is the victim of arguably the most beautiful submission ever in the UFC.

Thirdly, as much as I love Silva... Chael with the belt will do wonders for the division. I'm half hoping Silva wins and then retires. That'll be a glorious way to end it. Then the belt is up in the air... which is exciting for the MW contenders.

That would be the most shocking thing in MMA if Silva retires out of the blue, he is 37 so it could happen. But i would love to see him whoop Chael`s ass, then retire from MW and call out GSP or Jones. Mainly GSP for a lot of reason, UFC 112,GSP chants during his fights, he doesn`t deserve to fight GSP, and the half a decade of fantasy match up between the two.

If Chael were to lose I would to see him fight that math teacher he has been dissing for years. Rich Franklin looks like he is a legit contender at MW again.

Naaa. I have a lot of respect for athletes who withdraw when they are at the very top of their game. The trouble is, they are a very rare breed. I totally dont enjoy watching fighters who touched the stars slowly degrade into mediocre rubbish collecting high paychecks. I appreciate their need to do it... but I dont enjoy it.

If Silva wins and retires, all the remaining MW's will never know if they could have beat him or not. It'll be a yardstick that MW's will be measured against for years to come. Thats what you call a legacy. It would be a beautiful thing.

Man, I'm glad as **** that I'm not American haha.

I agree with two posts up, I'd love to see Silva retire and fight GSP. The best Vs the best. Jon Jones may well be the best this second, but he's been here 10 minutes while GSP and Silva have been side by side for way too long. One needs to stand out, because the winner would be crowned the greatest MMA fighter in history, and yes, that includes Fedor.

I agree. It would really be nice if he retired without having lost the title.

Wouldn't it be funny if Rich Franklin really made his title run again, gets his shot. And then, after demolishing Franklin again, Silva retires¿ Like "It ends like it began"

I don't think Franklin, Silva, or the UFC would ever let Silva Franklin 3 happen.

I wonder if Chael will have more respect for Silva now that he showed a little emotion? Seemed to me like that's all Chael ever wanted.
