Same here, I am that way with every big fight that guys like Silva, Bones, and Badr have because I am anticipating seeing something amazing.

Ladies and gentleman this is what everyone wants to see.

This will be historic. Friend is heading to Vegas during the show...gonna be crazy!!!

All I can say is that if there's one person you don't ever want to see pissed off it's..."The Spider!" He performs his best when he gets put to the test.

I think there was a UN meeting or something taking place the same weekend as 147, which caused scheduling conflicts with hotels and such. (I may be wrong?)

But at the same time, I remember Joe or Goldie saying the arena was sold out at 147, so I can't see how two sold out cards differ from each other when talking about hotel scheduling.

Silva just turned the heat up I can't wait for this fight. My prediction is Silva by 2nd rd TKO. I think Sonnen will struggle to secure takedowns in this fight simply because Silva will actually be defending them.

I just hope Silva doesn't come out in a gi again.

I think everyone including chael is shocked at what silva said. Chael is scared, there was no comeback or any fresh new material. The press call thing between Evans and Page, when that got heated it was back and forth no control.

I believe Chael Sonnen did not expect this silva to come out. Now i bet he is regretting his comment. I'm just glad July 7 i'll be on my couch, and not in a cage where the greatest talent we ever seen inside an octagon wants to break my man's teeth,legs,arms,change the sport, and send him home needing plastic surgery.

It might not be such a good thing that Anderson is pissed off. It could go either way.

He could fight dumb, and since he's fighting a wrestler he could fall into the same trap that happened last time and wind up on his back for 5 rounds. Or! He could go out there and smash Sonnen into a bloody pulp. It's tough to decide.

We've never seen him so angry before a fight, this will be extremely interesting considering on a normal day he's considered the best fighter the modern world has ever seen.

Sonnen already did a comeback to what Anderson said, it's in the other thread Oldfan posted on this.

He's already beat him down once. Yes he lost, 2 minutes away from easily being the next MW champion. I highly doubt he's scared.

Dana White is prob happy because anderson silva walking around and dancing was just stupid. Iam glad someone is bringing the fight to him.
