Why would a comment like that bother Sonnen? Who knows. I cant answer that. But looking at his reaction, it *did* bother him. Thats my point.

Nothing Sonnen said the whole conference managed to visibly ruffle Silva feathers. Yet, that one line from Silva got under Chaels skin.

Am I tripping or did anybody else see it that way?

I dunno i saw Chael keep the same face the whole time. Only time i think he was kind of annoyed is when people kept bringing up the "Loser leaves town" thing when Chael already explained it was an offer and Anderson didnt accept it.

Not sure what I saw. Personally I cringed when Soares said it, maybe Chael did too. Visibly.

I just looked at it again and Chael does indeed look mighty pissed. Sure, he kind of looks pissed the whole conference in a comedy villan kind of way... but he looks dark after that comment.

Surprising, because its the go-to line for a striker when they are facing wrestling strong opponents. "You cant stand with me"... its pure cliché rubbish from Anderson... and yet, instead of laughing at the rubbish-ness of it, Chael looks really pissed. He could have flipped it easily on Anderson. Instead he funnelled his vexed vibes onto Soares. Using the same iphone app joke ive heard twice before.

Whatever. I saw that little interaction as significant. Is it actually significant? Probably not. But then, I could say that about 99% of the whole intraweb.

Chael is pissed. Now he's not even going to attempt a takedown in the fight. He's going to bang it out... and still win.


RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I think you're tripping a little bit, lol.

Anderson was the one who looked notably uncomfortable every time Chael finished with his tirade of abuse. Sonnen remained fairly well poker faced throughout.

Anderson always looks uncomfortable with interviews and in the media though, so that's not really an indication to say that Chael got under his skin. Anderson is just a fairly awkward guy.

Well. I just got back from vacation so I wil weigh in on this now.

It seems to me that Anderson was desperately trying to get some type of reaction out of Sonnen during the staredown and he failed big time.

I think Anderson is way to emotional right now and Sonnen is in a business as usuall mode. Sonnen has definitely gotten to Silva.

As far as the press conference, Sonnen was the same as always while Anderson is trying to be something hes not.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

I think Anderson is just excited for this fight, hence his stare down energy/fwd motion. Just like in the countdown when he was excited when saying 'i will break your face' like 5 times lol

Dana looked really unimpressed though lol

This is not Silva trying to be something he's not. This is Silva being what he was before two of his best fights, the belfort fight and the Lee murray fight. The Murray staredown was even more intense than this one.

Not that it matters at all, but Sonnen won the stare down.
