Silva acting goofy, Sonnen ignoring him and waving to the crowed with a smile on his face, nothing special or too interesting.

I think some people put way too much stock into staredowns, they can be fun, but are meaningless in regards to how a fight will turn out.

As much as I want Chael to win to shake the division up, I'm not entirely sure it's going to happen.

Also I think Anderson's game plan will be much like it was with Maia except he will be more violent and aggressive with his striking. I honestly feel like Anderson is purposely going to try not to finish the fight with a KO, but punish him and hurt him over several rounds until a TKO or Chael quits.

Chael is going to try to take him down and beat on him for 25 minute like last time.
Yeah but Lee Murray wasn't stepping into the cage to blast Anderson with a power double and punch his head in from the top the whole fight.

Now he is a little more fired up and you think it is a bad thing?

Somehow that logic doesn't add up. Anderson doesn't get careless whhen he is fired up. He gets focused.

If anything I would feel more confident in an Anderson win.
We've never really seen Anderson that angry. A lot of people don't perform well when their emotions run hot. Some do, but other don't, that is why I'm less confident.

This unless one guy is flinching away or clearly rattled it's not a very good indicator of how a fight will go. If that was the case Diego and Wanderlei would be undefeated. Two guys mean mugging each other has never affected the outcome of a fight.

I see your point.

I think we saw him just as angry with Vitor. He took the 2 faces thing pretty serious.

Last fight Anderson was trying to defend TDs with jumping/flying knees. Not sure if it can get any worse than that? If anyone understands that acting on emotion is a way of getting killed it is Anderson. That is basically what he is all about.

All I know is I wouldn't want to be Sonnen. Anderson spent every day enjoying training for this fight. Everyday running every bad mouth comment Chael made about Brazil, his trainers, and his family through his head. I wouldn't want to mess with a world class champ who has that sort of motivation backing him.

Murray didn't spend 3 years disrespecting Brazil,Anderson's training partners, Silva's family and everyone else connected to Silva in any way.

Anderson was angrier fighting Vitor Belfort. There was a lot of unpublicized hatred between Andy and Vitor. Andy has had a problem with Vitor Belfort for years and years and that was probably the most emotional fight of his entire career.

Anderson isn't stupid. He knows Chael is fake and he knows that Chael doesn't believe half the crap that comes out of his mouth. He knows Chaels game, and he knows that Chael is playing a game. Fights against Vitor and Murray featured genuine emotion, because they were real.

Did anyone else think that Silva whispered something to Sonnen while they are going back and forth?

I don't really think this is angry Anderson. I think it is loony Anderson. He was making jokes and smiling much of the presser...he just seems very serious about winning this fight.

He whispered "You're screwed" into his ear. Been posted on a few websites.

There are truly some hilarious quotes in that Conference from Sonnen, that dude really is something else. These are my favorites;

Quote:
I don't promote fights, I pick fights. I'm like Jon Jones, I sound like Sean Combs and I got trambone sized stones like John Holmes

I gotta plead ignorance on the first fight, I thought when you tapped it ended the round, I did not know the contest as a whole came to a conclusion

The point is that he was super pissed off with Murray and he kicked his ass even though he was angry before the fight. His anger is not going to effect his performance in my opinion.
