UFC is behind the NONSENSE
 
Yesterday I saw a video about the "The Spider" (Anderson Silva) vs "The Lamer" (Chael Sonnen) I really started to ask some questions:

1- Why did the UFC do nothing to all the BS that Chael Sonnen has done?
2- Why didn't the UFC say hey "Chael Sonnen" stop, you're talking about our Organizations CHAMPION?
3- Why didn't they call Anderson and apologize for all the BS that that big mouth "Chael Sonnen" said about his wife, country, and personality?
4- Why did the UFC cut off lots of fighter just for jokes, or quotes on Twitter. Why didn't they cut Sonnen for all this BS?

Please don't tell me that its business, or its to increase the hype and make big money. Silva if he just walks in a corridor, he will make you money! He is not just an ICON to the sport, he is a true Super Star. So money will come, with respect or with insulting (and thats how the UFC chose it to be)!

I'm sure Anderson, by now knows that he has his back against the wall, and that the WHOLE F****KING organization is behind this lamer "Chael Sonnen". Just as they were when they turned their organization to a supporter for their champion John Jones against Rashad. Only that JJ is a respectful man, not like Sonnen! Rashad felt bad at that time too. Now they are doing the same shit with their LEGEND!

Questions to whom ever reads and posts a response here:
1- How would you feel about a guy that keeps saying bad about your wife, your family, your country, and about you?

2- How would you feel when you see no interruption from the company you work for about these incidents?

3- Please don't be a racist (American, Brazilian, etc) when you answer, or when you cheer for a fighter or any other sports man. Sport is about wining in honor and respect to your opponents not what we are seeing right now from "Chael Sonnen".


MSG to the Spider:
Please, Please, Please end this Joker...

Anderson will have 25 minutes to respond to everything Chael has said. Let him fend for himself.

Having said that, I'm rooting for Sonnen to manhandle him and be more careful this time about overextending :-)

Don't even know how to respond to that wall of text. The only points I was able to derive from that rambling was that the pre-fight banter is bad for their business and that Anderson is a huge draw regardless of fight. Both obviously ridiculous points as many sources have conveyed the fact that grudge matches with a lot of pre-fight trash talk do awesome sales and Anderson actually isn't that big of a draw compared to how you perceive. In my experience more people know who Brock Lesnar is than the Spider...

I'm a huge Silva fan and do find some of the things Sonnen has said ignorant or crossed the line. However its the fight business and he does have a right to say what he wants. In general the UFC is like any other sport league, these athlete can say whatever they want in the context of competition.

These guys are in the entertainment business it comes with the territory. Ali, Jordan,etc are all great smack talkers. Its the sport business, and at the end of the day they should have thick skin. Silva will have his chance to get put an end to this nonsense in one week and a day.

True, plus don't we as members of this forum bash fighters we dislike? Its pretty much the same context except we don't fight the guy were bashing.

If in any sport you are allowed to talk crap about the guy you are competing against its in MMA. Anything Chael says can be used as fuel for Anderson and then he has his 25minutes to make him eat each and every single one of his words. I dont feel bad for Anderson at all since alot of people get crap talked about them but dont have the opportunity to beat them up infront of millions and millions of people like Anderson does.

And lets not pretend to ignore the fact that Chael has likely put over a few hundred grand in each of their pockets. I was watching MMA uncensored yesterday and they claimed that Anderson is guaranteed to make atleast 7million this fight.

It's called trash talk, and it's hyping one of the biggest rematches in ufc's history so why would it bother them? It's sonnen's words not there's. Sonnen knows deep down he can beat silva and it's beating him up inside how the last fight ended.

Zuffa are promoters and that is what promoters do. Why didn't Don King stop Ali when he talked smack, or Tyson for that matter because he was/is a promoter and guess what they are in it for the money. Trust me at the end of the night Anderson, Dana, Lorenzo, and Chael will all sit down and have a beer.

Just imagine Dana watching one of Chael's speeches with dollar sign eyes.
