Huge Sonnen fan, here. And I greatly disliked Andy way before the Chael fights were even dreamed of. And I am willing to be honest about why. I dislike Andy because he dethroned Rich. Im a huge fan of Rich Franklin and have wanted to see Silva get beat down since he took the title from Rich. Just like due to being an Indianapolis Colts fan, I really dislike the Patriots.
I am a fan of Chael Sonnen for 2 reasons. He is great at both talking the talk and walking the walk. Chael will tell you hes going to go in there and beat you up and make you like it, then he does it. Thats all around entertainment. Did Anderson win the mma contest? Yes. Did Chael beat Anderson up? Yes. Thats why Im so stoked for this fight. Both of these guys have the skills to win. If Andy wins, no big deal, anticlimatic, he was supposed to win. BUT, if Chael wins, the roof blows off the place. The MMA world is turned upside down and I am a happy man. Another reason while Im chearing for Chael, I like to go with the underdog.
Now back on topic, Andy is talking a little smack here. As a Chael fan, I embrace this. After 2 years of effort, Chael has won. He has got a response. He FINALLY got a reaction. Chael Sonnen is, undoubtebly in Anderson's head. We just have to wait and see on July 7th whether or not getting in Anderson's head is a good thing to do.
