Am I the only one that remembers what happened the last time someone said one of Anderson's opponents could submit him.

Anyone remember who it was?

ife B Ez - Yep! Lutter...who tapped to a triangle and elbows.

Listen guys, I'm not doubting that Sonnen is gonna put up one hell of a fight and that his BJJ probably improved. He did the first time but the Silva that fought Sonnen is not the same Silva that fought Okami and Vitor. I am glad he is pissed, people say it's not good to fight with emotion but I think for Anderson this will work in his favour.

Lutter said he was, but he wasn't the last.

Good to see Liddellianenko can compare talking a bitch of trash to the sex and drug trade. Because those things have so much in common....... I almost want to think you realize how ******* moronic those comparisons are, but I somehow doubt you do.
I agree with both Prolyfic and Lidellianenko. Why would you say "supposed morals"? you really have no clue that people with real moral actually exist? I know many people, myself included who wouldn't sell themselves for money like a whore. That's why I hate Sonnen along with some other reasons. His fake persona doesn't bother me at all, it's his real personality.

It's kind of sad that some people are so fake and money-hungry that you look up to people like Sonnen for what he does. Completely unaware that there are people who value moral and intergrity above money.

Sonnen the richboy, silverspoon fed nerd talking shit about a country for being poor, to make more money himself, makes me kind of sick. Yes we know he's just trolling, we know he isn't really a racist xenophobe, but he's still a shitty person.

The point is to compare the principle not the severity obviously.

The point is I don't understand where this principle comes from "Oh ordinarily this is wrong, but he's doing it for some money so it's ok". That's just dumb. That principle does not exist in any morality, yours or mine or any rational human being's, so it's a bit absurd when people on this forum keep saying it like it makes any sense whatsoever.

You can still do it by all means, but don't expect to use "he did it for the money" as a plea in any court of law for any crime petty or big. Like "Your honor I was only doing 120mph because my buddy here bet me $100 that I couldn't". I imagine the judge will have quite a laugh and probably fine you double.

I understand "Oh ordinarily this is wrong, but he's doing it to save a life/for an emergency/the greater good" or whatever as some sort of amelioration, but putting one selfish motive on top of another doesn't suddenly make it unselfish.

oh, so we can't blame murderers or rapists before we have been in their situation and said "no, I think I'll walk away"?

do you even read what you type?

The fact that sonnen is stooping to this length just for a few extra bucks makes it even worse, not better.
A bit of pre-fight hype talk is equivalent to murdering someone?!
