The point isn't that these guys are tough and can take it. The point is that it isn't permitted. Sonnnen might have deserved it, but leave the fighting for inside the cage.

If they had their heads pressed against one another or were pushing each other, that's one thing. To hit another guy when he isn't expecting it before the fight isn't cool.

I can see the promotional value others are talking about, but if an example iwn't made out of him then other fighters will think it's fine to hit guys before the fight.

Part of me wished Uncle Dana would have given Andy a slap in the face to even things up.

Imagine if Chael did this. Everybody would be asking for Sonnen to be cut and to cancel the fight. I don't even think I'm exaggerating on that either.

You're not.

All the pro-Brazilian/Anderson fans are just condoning it because it happened to Chael.

If this was Chael or Jones or anyone like that, there'd be riots.

First time I saw it I thought cool, didn't really think it was a big deal. Watching it again I can see Andy getting fined for it, it wasn't a nudge, it wasn't a love tap, it was purposeful strike directly to his jaw that would probably get most fighters disqualified/fined.

I think I just lost every bit of respect I had for Anderson, the most cowardly thing I've seen since Daley took a swing at Kos post-fight. Watch it again, he makes about as much solid contact as he could have, cowardly. This isn't about what Chael did or didn't do, this about what Anderson did on video, this scenario has nothing to do with Chael's past, what a piece of crap. The more I think about it the worse it is, Chael was right, he's a cowardly punk.

Ah yes, the same guy who crys all day long about how Chael insults people for money is here doing the same thing. The only difference is you're not getting paid....... Real great morals you got

He paid his dues for both those infractions and neither have anything to do with this cheap shot.

If your going to try to make a sound argument to condone the behavior at least cite some of the disgusting quotes he said about Brazil or Anderson's wife instead of trolling Chael fans on irrelevant points.

LOL, Silva's an emotional mess. And Yeah, I mean how far do you let cheap shots go? I think face shots need to be punished.

Regardless, Chael didn't seem phased. This is going to be epic........ I hope.

I implore you all to watch it again closely, Anderson hits him much harder than it first looks like. That compounded with the fact Chael wasn't wearing a mouthpiece and that he hit him directly in the jaw makes it so much worse, criminal offense worthy. Doing that as hard as he did to some people would knock them down.

I didn't think much of it. This is how you assault someone at a weigh in. Best thing Cote has done imo
