There's no denying that Maia, Leites and Cote WERE afraid in there with Anderson. They fight for a living, but when they got clocked at will and realized he could smash their noses in and humiliate them at any moment he chose, they fell back to flopping on their butts and throwing weak pretend strikes.

There are many instances throughout history of hardened soldiers turning tail and running when they realized the enemy was too strong or powerful for them. Instinct takes over when the mind suddenly realizes it's chances.
Yes, that's correct. You never know how you react until you are in the situation when it's "life or death" (and your subconsciousness will have a hard time to see the difference between a real life threatening situation and the regulated situation of an MMA fight where the referee would save you), but that's when the situation really happens and the physical threat is acutally there. But beforehand when there's only talking, it's something different.

I suppose you're right, that kind of fear kicks in more in the moment.

Still, I think Chael is getting "anxious" perhaps knowing that he doesn't have the same crutch as last time, coming off a mediocre performance while Anderson is coming off 2 devastating KOs, and knowing he's facing off a very pissed and motivated guy who has been known to toy with the best of the best when he's on.

The bravado is definitely a bit weaker than usual in this response from Chael.

Yes, I agree, the response was not that loudmouthish as usual. I think the biggest mental setback for him is that he couldn't use his TRT in the same way as before their first fight. That could take away some of his confidence. Any type of PED does not only work physically on your body, but also pychologically, because you have in mind to have that little "extra".

Of course they get afraid. They are humans not robots. In a recent interview chael even admitted that he himself gets scared sometimes.

What is beyond me is people implying that simply because these guys are professional fighters they seem to be insensitive to fear... Which they are not.

Show me that quote where Sonnen admitts to get scared by trashtalk of opponents that are not physically a couple of inches in front of him. I'm talking about trashtalking, not about real life threatening situations.

Please A. Silva, put Chael to sleep. I don't care how. This prefight hype has produced some of the most moronic Sonnen smacktalk I've ever heard, and everybody knows that's saying a lot.

I'm way pumped for this fight. Being both a Chael and Anderson fan, I can't wait to see how this plays out.

Repeat of the last time or Anderson just demolishing Chael?
