Classy Chael pays double to Vinny.

Quote:



“I don’t want to talk about amounts, because my management was the one dealing with the whole money situation. But he did pay more than my management asked. We asked for a certain amount, and he came up with much more. We asked for an amount for two weeks of training, and he came up with an amount which would’ve entitled him to four weeks of training. So how can I not respect the guy? He paid me double. On Chael’s check … you know how they have a line for what the check is for? He wrote ‘Defeat Silva.’ So I kept a copy, because I thought that was pretty funny.”
To me it seems Chael Sonnen is a class act. Except ofcourse when it comes to Anderson but then again he doesnt like Anderson. Id rather he be honest then be fake..

I just laughed out loud at the defeat Silva part he wrote on the check.

But I do agree, when he isn't trolling the dude is really a class act. I remember following his career way back since his first fight with Babalu and his interview he had before the fight about how he use to look up to Babalu when his mom would take him to practices and he got to meet him. He is a very respectful person, just not towards anderson lol. But I have a feeling behind closed doors those two actually respect each other no matter what the other guy says.

So just because Chael throws in a big tip, he's the nicest guy ever. Even though he spends every waking breath trashing vinny's entire country, people and art. Great.

People need to realise this is all just an act for the camera. He's a marketing genious. Im sure deep down he doesnt even mind Anderson Silva. He just decided to go after one of the most popular fighters there is to promote himself.
And by doing these "promos" he gets more attention from fans and media, which in turn means more profit from sponsors and Dana/PPV.

What does he care if 80% of fans dont like him when they'll pay to see him get beat up. Either way, his wallet wins!

Anderson Silva is not a popular fighter by any means, except among MMA fans and in Brasil.

Go on the street and ask who he is and 19 out of 20 won't even have heard his name.

He's not Tito Ortiz or Chuck Liddell.

And maybe he's just trying out new ways for money laundering

Have you tried that out in Finland¿ I guess 19 out of 20 there won't also not know who Ortiz and Liddell are. The only one I've heard being mentioned by non-MMA fans outside the US is "that Russian guy who never loses". MMA is just not that big worldwide, we who enjoy it live in a bubble

Chael has always been a class act.

Anyone else notice at the press conference staredown, while silva was acting like a thug Chael searched the audience for his mom and gave her a little gesture and a smile? it seemed to me like he was saying "see mom I got to him". (@38 seconds)



people here like to debate chaels marketing genius and claim that this fight won't do any special numbers. you are missing the point.

Chael's genius is proven by the fact that he's getting his rematch so soon after all of his other troubles.


Vinny has a cool souvenir from the new champ

depends where in Finland I am I suppose. Here in the middle parts to northern Finland MMA is pretty well known actually. I'd say to the point of boxing.


And I was speaking generally.. You can't argue that Ortiz and Liddell aren't more well known than Silva.

All I see is a cowering rodent, pointing into an empty space to avoid glimpsing the eyes of the dark towering colossus that bares over him.

Him mom indeed... more like:
