It is pretty clear from Chael's past fights that he isn't afraid of being hurt but he also doesn't deal well with pain. He is quick to tap from submission holds and reacts poorly to being hit. If he is like that after the amount of pro fights he has had then he isn't changing. He used a proper triangle defense in the first fight; he just has a low pain tolerance.

The gap in mental and physical toughness between these two is enormous. One guy gets hit 300 times and doesn't give up or shy away from the fight the other guy gets hit with a punch from a guy off his back and turtles up and gets caught in a triangle.

Silva is going to humiliate and toy with Sonnen. He could finish him in round 1 but will probably drag it out until about round 3. The only reason the first fight was close is because Silva fought with a cracked rib. We saw the worst possible Anderson Silva fight the best possible Chael Sonnen, and he still won!

I expect Anderson Silva to be ready this time for Chael and put together another spectacular performance which people will look back on at the end of his career. I think Silva will toy with him on the feet bust him up with kicks, punches and knees and finish him off in devastating fashion likely in the first or second round. If Silva wins this fight he'll likely without a doubt go down as one of the greatest Mixed Martial Artist's ever even in future generations but if he losses it'll lower his status of greatness especially in the future when people look back on his career.

I think people tend to forget one important thing.

The Anderson Silva who fights angry is the Anderson Silva who lost to Ryo Chonan.

Just a thought.

I think honestly Chael will be even MORE aggressive on the feet in this one. He might even be more aggressive on the ground.

And no, being aggressive isn't what got him subbed. It was taking it easy in the last 2 minutes of a dominant fight.

I've got Chael via submission in round 5 after being beaten on for 23 minutes. Afterwards people will claim Chael always wanted to sub Anderson, that's why he got beaten on for four and a half rounds. They know this because they saw a youtube video of Chael explaining omoplata defense.

One wonders how the weigh ins on friday will compare with the last time Chael and Silva fought:

So he wasn't angry vs. Belfort?


But yet you want to use the fight from how many years ago? Over the one from just last year? I don't see the sense in that.

Anderson Silva lost 4.5 rounds to Chael when he showed little emotion towards him. I don't see how being upset is going to do him any worse than that?

In my eyes he isn't even upset in this fight. He even laughed when Chael said look at Las Vegas when asked if he feels safer now instead of a Brazil venue. Anderson was smiling and joking the whole press conference.

I don't see how anyone can claim that Anderson is THAT upset. He is just trying to use intimidation. He is just MOTIVATED to kick someones ass for once. Motivation isn't the same thing as anger.

If anyone in the sport practices and lives by not letting emotion get the best of you it would be Anderson, Machida, and that whole crew.

I think Anderson knows what he is doing here. It isn't his first rodeo. He has always been confident. But this fight he is just wearing his confidence on his sleeve.

He can't look any worse than last fight.

I agree. I think Sonnen needs to look at it that way. He did so good with aggression last fight there is no reason to tone it down or set up anything better.

But on the other hand I think Anderson knows this and has a few things planned for when Sonnen comes in.

I fully expect an almost boring few minutes of Anderson doing circles and Sonnen not able to track him down. Silva will defiantly stay outside and make Sonnen travel a great distance to get him. But I think he has something for him on the way in.

If that was to happen I would have to personally go to Brazil to finance a statue of Anderson Silva.
