Usually someone who is upset and being aggressive but doesnt want to people around him to know he is upset tend to do exactly what Anderson did. His face didnt match the actions he was taking with his body. I got the feeling he was genuinely upset and wanted to try and intimidate Chael. But just like their stare-down in their first fight Chael was unfazed.




But tbh i dont think this stuff matters much. I cant say i remember a fight where the staredown helped predict the fight. Im 98% positive Anderson will be the typical Anderson and same with Chael.

Just think about it...

If it was US in there would we really let Chael get into our heads and make us fight different or dumber???? Probably not. And if we would remain unfazed by it im sure these professional fighters can too.

No doubt he is upset, likely pissed off, but i associate the word anxious as a negative thing such as nervousness due to fear of danger or something negative or worried. None of which Silva is likely feeling. I'm trying to find out what he whispered and most are saying on the internet he said "your f*** dead" to sonnen.

Wasnt it "You are screwed"??? Isnt that what the websites are reporting? Thats what i read anyway.

Being pissed off could very well be a negative. As far as Silva being nervous because of fear is extremelyy unlikely. Like i wrote under the picture of Anderson/Chael i doubt this stuff will have any effect on the fight itself.

Means nothing. Anderson is old school, look past the nice shirts and designer watches because he is a typical, brutal Chute Boxe fighter. Sonnen is a showpony when the cameras are out, everything he says is rehearsed.

Nothing new here.

I think people underestimate how hard working Silva is. I genuinely believe that he is a fighting savant, but at the same time he is working like a maniac to exploit his potential. In Silva you find both worlds, the talent AND the disciplined work horse - that's why he is so dominant for such a long period of time. I think unlike a lot of other fighters who only love to fight he also really enjoys training and trying out new stuff to improve his skills.

I don't believe in ANY mental games coming into play when you're in the cage.

Chael is in Anderson's head? So what? Anderson wants to knock him out? What if Chael wasn't in his head? Would Anderson be grinding it out for a decision win? Don't think so.

It's like when people say "If you don't believe you're going to win, you won't". Bullshit. If you train as hard as ever, the second you step into that cage and you notice that a dudes trying to knock you out, you're doing whatever you can to avoid it, and the way to do so is to impliment you're trained gameplan and stop him from doing so.

How do you figure that? Is it the 11 losses or the TRT abuse that makes him so disciplined?

I just really hope this fight doesnt turn out to be some anticlimax dud where Sonnen gets knocked out within 30 seconds. I want a back and forth 5 round WAR!
