So a multi-millionaire 5-year champ with more than a dozen UFC fights picks NOW to start talking trash for that extra buck. Helping make it also for a cheating, douchebag who disrespects his country, wife and entire life.
This is REAL. Chael is a lying, cheating, conniving prick, and this is a man who is going to rip him to shreds. It's not about $10000 more, that means nothing to a guy on Anderson's level.

If Anderson waits until about a week before the fights and goes off on chael then they both will bank a ton.
He waited until now because he wanted to be sure he made it injury free through camp and was ready to back his words up. Now he is.
