Well, for starters, I'm not paying for it because of my interest in Anderson Silva, I'm paying for it because of the whole card and mainly because of Sonnen vs Silva. I'm trying to say that the last fight had all sorts of drama in itself. Sonnen completely dominating the fight for 4 and half rounds and Silva somehow getting a sub. IMO that should be enough. I'm the first one to admit that maybe I'm a bit naive and really shouldn't ever even think of working in promotion, but IMO really good sport stories, drama and rivalries happen by themselves, not by faking it. Not that it really bothers me that much, I would have bought the PPV either way.

Regarding the PPV buys, Anderson Silva IS one of the biggest draws, i've saw graphs collating PPV data and the PPVs with Anderson Silva fights on them spike, only GSP and Lesnar out do him if i remember correctly.

The reason this is more interesting than normal is because it's the first time, since becoming a UFC star that his opponent has a seemingly legitmate chance.

Thought it was a total cheap shot and hope Dana fines him some of his purse. I'm thinking 10-15 percent to send a message that hitting another guy at the weigh-ins is not okay.

Maybe that's a bit extreme, but for me it's the principle of the matter.

What are your guys thoughts?

Hopefully someone can embed the video when it's available. I just finished watching it live.
Nah, Dana's going to give him a bonus - It's just part of the show and sells ppv's because we're all suckers for a little "bad blood" hype...just look at this thread, 7000+ views and counting!

You really think Anderson's wife would have the time or talent to make youtube videos, and get caught in more mudslinging? It would only give sonnen more ammunition and make her seem like a harridan. Instead she took the high road and is settling things the best way for a lady ... by having her manly man of a husband knock his bloody head off inside the cage.
I laughed because he made it seem like it was impossible to retaliate when that is obviously not the case. Thus his 2 sarcastic remarks about tv and head of the state. So thats why i laughed. You cant make sarcastic remarks like that when the response to the sarcastic remarks is "No obviously not but she could go about it this incredibly easy way". If there wasnt an simple way to go about it THEN you can make sarcastic remarks like "What should they go to the head of state yada yada yada"
Put it this way. If he said that to me in person and said his 2 sarcastic remarks i would have responded with "Wtf no retard... she can just go to the internet. Where did you get TV and head of state from"

And BTW
I never said she should respond. You dont even know what the dam discussion was about obviously so you should probably stay out of it. And btw ofcourse she would have time lol. What is she the busiest person on earth??

LOL did this guy just suggest that his wife should make a youtube video to trash talk chael?

You were better off taking my sarcasm seriously than spouting such foolishness. Now give it rest before you embarrass yourself even more.
