Nonsense. This man has been the Undisputed champion for years in the UFC and is the pound for pound number 1 fighter in the world. He has seen every thing there is to see in the fight game and you're fooling yourself if you think Chael is going to some how mentally break Silva. The only one that mentally breaks here is Chael Sonnen. Like he did throughout his wrestling career, like he did throughout the WEC and like he did in the last Anderson Silva fight.

For those still clutching onto the idea that Anderson may be fighting with too much emotion. Take a good look at his fights with Vitor Belfort (still his most personal affair to date) and Lee Murray. People are so quick to forget things in this sport.
but nobody's ever been like this to Anderson, insulting his family, friends and country. Chaels gotten to him for sure, you wouldn't be emotional if some did that to you in the media?

Not to be nitpicky but lee murray was definitely talking sh*t about anderson's training partners.

But the John Holmes quotes made me laugh pretty hard.

Well, Chael crossed the line and pulled the tiger's tail so what do ya expect? I'm surprised Anderson was as composed as he was!

I agree with Toxic though - Not sure if these emotions will help or hurt Anderson. It could work to Chael's favor, could get him killed. Can't wait to see.

I with you on the first part, but the reason I want to watch is EXACTLY so the second part happens.

I want to see Chael eat his words and have all his hard work be for nothing. Because he needs to learn that hard work with evil motives or actions is a horrible thing. If you work hard to be the best murderer in the world, you should still go to jail and rot for it.

He has cheated unrepentantly, crossed beyond the line of personal against an entire country, sport, dozens of hard working fellow fighters, their families, other sportsmen and many more.

Nothing would be more just than to see the look on Chael's face as he wakes up bloody on the canvas on July 7th and realizes that his cheating, ruining his body with steroids, trash talking, disrespect, grueling workouts and everything else were ALL FOR NOTHING.

Again.

At that point, Sonnens face looks like thunder. Then he goes off on the whole "Anderson can speak English thing" ( again ) completely avoiding the diss.

Nothing Sonnen said the whole conference made Silva flinch even a little.

Chael might be regarded as an uber troll jedi... but hes been so relentless with his talk that we're all used to it. Its lost its impact.

At this point, I'm more confident that Silva will win the fight. I did just have a massive shit, which has put me in a good mood. Lets see how I feel tomorrow.
I just got done watching the fight yesterday (first fight), Sonnen actually had no problems standing up with him. In fact, Sonnen actually got the better of him standing except for a flurry Anderson got off in the 4th (I think that was the round) where Sonnen survived fairly easy and got right back on top.

Not saying Sonnen is the better striker by any means, but I highly doubt that got Sonnen even the slightest bit worried. He already knows Anderson has great striking, that's nothing new, but what is new in this fight is he knows that he did quite well standing with him considering the skill gap in their striking ability.

Honestly, neither guy is scared or worried - it would be ridiculous to think otherwise. These are two top ranked MMA fighters who already fought once, one guy won and the other guy dominated him for 4 and a half rounds, both are coming into this fight with complete confidence and know what's going on, some pre-fight banter isn't going to worry either of them.
