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.
It has been going on for a long time since the pride days, he is not gonna do shit.

Either way, Sonnen is proving to be a rock. It's going to take more than a shoulder nudge to stop that double leg.

during the formation off mma striking styles needed to utilize the palm strikes because gloves weren't used. The open palm strike is used as an effective alternative to closed fist punches because without gloves it is very easy to break ones hand on an opponents face. The video you posted showed a man with a clear knowledge of ccq and demonstrated a clearly practiced form of an open palm strike. His stance demonstrated a readiness for combat, and he clearly held back too, he put 0% of his body weight into it.

In other words the video is irrelevant. The strike was intended to ko.

I'd not rule out a submission victory. I can guarantee, however, that Sonnen won't be KOed or TKOed. This guy has eaten some nasty shots from top strikers, and he doesn't go down. He'll walk through Anderson's best, just like last time.

But yes, that pesky triangle will be something to watch out for.

All I can say is that Cheal is in his head, and Cheal knows it.

I hope Cheal grounds Anderson into the ground. I can't wait for this fight.....YEAH! I'm pumped.

The way I see this fight is Silva is gonna finish him early as everything indicates he is coming to fight. Or Chael beats Silva via decision, in that case it will be a dominant performance from Chael.

The two x factors are Silva winning via decision and Chael finishing Silva.

Dying to know what that guy said to him that angered him so much. Can't make it out bc the audio is so quiet.


Dude looked like Jeremy Horn and new exactly how to help him come to.

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.
BullSh** If Chael had done this you'd be sitting here touting it as no big deal, and him just messing with Anderson, but oh dear god forbid Anderson do anything then you pitch a whiny little fit.

I don't see how people can defend Anderson here. It doesn't matter if the strike was weak or not. You can't hit guys at the weigh ins, plain and simple. Why even bother waiting for the fight tomorrow if they can just hit each other at the weigh ins? Then people have the nerve to act like Chael had it coming. Complete rubbish. If Chael did that to Silva those same people would be on his ass about it.

I don't think he should be fined. He should just get yelled at by Dana, which I imagine already happened.
