Vinny Magalhães Says Sonnen “Can Submit Anderson This Time”
 
Quote:

By Jamie McAllister
Vinny Magalhães in an an interview with TATAME.

The ADCC Champion was recruited by Chael Sonnen in order to develop Sonnen’s Jiu-Jitsu skills for the rematch with Anderson Silva at UFC 148.

Magalhães admits he has received a lot of criticism from his fellow Brazilians for helping Sonnen. He also said in his current situation with no fights lined up the offer was too good financially and professionally to turn down.

“Things got ugly because I’m training Chael and he says many things about Brazil, much bullshit, but it’s my profession. I can’t deny things just because people will get bothered by it. I listed a bunch of reasons, financial reasons are the biggest one is about my family and the fact I won’t fight for a year.”

Sonnen is known for his trash talking but Magalhães witnessed another side and had nothing bad to say about The American Gangster. He states that Sonnen told him it was all about ticket sales and even apologized to him.

“Man, he might be bipolar but I’ve only met nice Chael. It’s quite the opposite. He told me it’s all about advertizing, to sell the fight and he does something nobody in the sport does. The first time I talked to him about this fight he apologized and said: “sorry, but I have to sell 800 thousand”, so it’s nothing personal.”

When asked about his predictions for the fight Magalhães predicted a win for Sonnen and thinks he may even submit Anderson this time around.

“Man, it’s not only because I trained with him, but I believe he has a hard style for Anderson to defeat.”

“I believe it will go the same way as the first one did: Chael taking him down and controlling him from the top. If he believes in his game, I believe he can submit Anderson this time. Now, if he doesn’t submit him, he’s gonna win via points.”

When asked if he would be cornering Sonnen at UFC 148 Magalhães admitted he would prefer not to.

“No. I don’t think so.”

“I’d rather not be in his corner so I wouldn’t get involved in all this Anderson thing. I rather not get involved.”
I'd rather see him tap from strikes :)

Tough choices. My question is what if he was flushed with cash. Would he have taken the job.

We shall see on Saturday...

Sonnen subbing Anderson via arm triangle would be soooooo awesome.

Lol at all the people thinking Chael was serious.

How long have they been training together¿ I mean, you don't learn how to submit a BJJ black belt in a couple of weeks.

It may not have been his very 1st lesson.

First off....LMAO!!!! OK VINNY.

As to Chael trying to sell the fight, yeah everyone knows that he isn't serious. Him playing dumb games about not knowing that tapping ends the fight and he is really the champ. yeah ok fair enough but to disrespect an entire people and get personal with a man and his family is a question of a persons integrity. So basically if Chael in a sundress doing the macarena on top of the local bar on free wings wednesday would get 800K buy on a PPV we should expect that next...Gimmie a break. Its meant to sell the fight but why does personal decency have to take a back seat.

yeah, with Randy, Hendo and Lindland. :P


and Sonnen subbing Anderson is about as likely as Anderson winning a wrestling match against Sonnen.

People crossing moral lines for monetary gain?! This is an outrage.



Seriously though what world do you live in? Lets face it, YOU would do the macarena in a sundress for 800k buys..

He did reverse Anderson in the first fight, I'm not sure if that was Anderson just not trying or if Chael's ju-jitsu is that good and he did have the opportunity for an arm triangle in the first fight.

Chael's not clueless on the ground nor has he ever been, Anderson's just really good but he's not Magalhães good.
