Midway into the press conference Chael basically shutdown, Anderson actually beat Sonnen in trash talking in a very sly manner, he got the crowd to favor him. After that he basically made Chael his bitch in the staredown.

damn Chael is already scurred, I wonder what happens on fight night.

#1 Lyoto "the Dragon" Machida
#2 Junior "Cigano" Dos Santos
#3 Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
#4 Fedor "Last Emperor" Emelianenko
#5 "the Prodigy" BJ Penn

Im on another level now

Chael just talks to sell himself and his fights. Chael handled the staredown professionally and without emotion. These guys don't get paid until they fight. There's no point in wasting any energy in a staredown.

I don't think I'd read too much into this staredown. I think Anderson has identified that he needs to appear to be the bully to make Chael back off from his brash comments. To me its just gamesmanship on both guys parts. They both know that they aren't going to actually fight at a press conference or they would likely lose their license. Chael isn't having any part of it and Anderson looks ready to go already.

Come fight time none of this is going to matter but its actually good to see Anderson worked up. Its not going to effect him in a negative manner come fight time, both these guys are professionals, their training is done, now they just have to get to the weekend.

That was proper rubbish from Chael. The cheesiest I've ever seen him. I get that he's trying to be cheesy... but either way, it stinks.

Is he going to carry on like this till he retires? I hope he evolves.

100% sure it will be RO-1 or RO-2 TK/O for The Spider.

NO WAY is sonnen leaving with the "W"

I wish that Silva does it with a NEW trick (just like the one Vitor eat)
