shoulder to the jaw is much worse than an open palm slap

I don't know about that if you aren't going to really be hurt by either a slap would probably be more humiliating for a lot of fighters.

hand is about two pounds of soft flesh, shoulder has 100+ pounds behind it. I can't even believe Anderson did it so well, watch it again more closely. He's clearly just trying to piss off Chael so he spends all night stewing about the incident at the weigh-ins.

I see what people are getting at with the 'professionalism' talk, but Anderson is simply playing the game at this point. He's finally taken on the role of the troll. I don't particularly mind. He's attempting to get into Sonnen's head, but Chael isn't going to crack or be intimidated by Silva.

You can't be slapping guys at weigh ins, nor striking to the face at weigh ins. Pretty soon we're going to have knees to the groin and eye poking.

My guess is Dana will deal with it, at the proper time. Cheal didn't seem to have any reaction to it what so ever. The fight is on.

disagree, I don't think Andy's acting at all anymore. That was way too risky of a move to be an act, I think Chael wants the belt and Anderson can't stand being in the same room as Chael

Depends if it's done in front of a bunch of people I guess. It doesn't get more embarrassing then being slapped in the face.

Would you rather take the shoulder butt or be slapped around in front of your friends?

Here they are:



Silva - Sonnen weigh ins start at 28:30

That shoulder nudge wasn't that bad after all. Wasn't nice, but nothing to make a big drama out of it.

Just let them play. They're both enjoying the trolling. All will be concluded tomorrow night.
