These things tend to escalate. If UFC don't send a message to the fighters that the fighting should be done in the octagon before you know it there will be full swings flying at the weigh-ins. (Even though in this particular case Chael kind of deserved it and Anderson maintained full composure through the encounter.)

It is funny how Chael fans don't understand that they do these faceoffs because they want shit like that to happen to help promotion. There is a long history of much worse happening than that in prize fighting. It is alright for Chael use standardized promotional tactics but not Silva I guess.

Things like this are great for business, look at Mike Tyson for example he is known for his great pre fight moments.

Talk is talk but throwing your shoulder into a guys jaw on purpose is another thing

I wasn't aware Chael struck Anderson.

Of course this is good for promotion, it's still a dick move. It'd have been a dick move if Sonnen or anyone else done it.

Was that going to hurt Chael or something? Chael easily could have done something like when Diaz bumped his head into Penn. It's prize fighting, the damn event is theme it's personal.

That's because a BJJ class is training! this is a weigh in. It's not training for a fight.

And your previous post - "He ******* chest bumped him, the guy is a pro fighter for ****s sake if he can't take catching a shoulder in the face from two inches away he needs to pack it up and head home."

It's not about being able to take a shoulder. It's a weigh in. The fights tomorrow. It shouldn't have happened is the point.

And no, it was not even close to a chest bump. Get your eyes checked.

It is standard fare so I don't really care about it. This wasn't even that bad from a historical perspective. He just bumped him punches get thrown at some of these things.
