That was pretty weak stuff from Anderson. I'd like to see him fined - not a huge amount or anything, but just a reminder. If the UFC doesn't start setting a tone on that sort of thing (Diaz's head butt with Penn for instance) we're going to end up with an all out weigh-in brawl at some point. And that's not good for anyone.

The line is getting slimmer and slimmer. It needs to start going back the the other way a little bit.
Yes next time they'll add a table with some eggs on it for breakfast for the two guys. Share a meal, then hug each other then fight next day!

1st RO TK/O for Silva, that is all you guys will remember for decades!

Was it unprofessional? Yeah, absolutely but Chael's become an international celebrity because of his unprofessionalism. I honestly don't think what Silva did was any worse than what guys like Wanderlei Silva and Jon Jones have done.

That being said, as much as I don't like Chael Sonnen, I dislike Silva more. I'm sick and tired of seeing Anderson Silva wearing that belt and I want to see him get his ass kicked even worse than last time, I can live with Chael Sonnen being the Middleweight Champion so long as Silva is embarrassed and disgraced.

It's a shame we won't be able to see Silva fail and disappoint his family and friends and thousands of Brazilians in his home country.

Thank You. And yes what Anderson did should not have happened, I can not in any right mind chide him for what he did after all the Sh*t Chael said about him, his country, and his family.

Please. DO not pretend you give rat's ass about sportsmanship. You are the biggest Chael nuthugger here. You can't even type out the word sportsmanship without pushing Chael's testicles to the side. You support the worst sportsman in all of mma and you complain when Anderson actually gets pissed. Pathetic.

And guys don't buy into the whole Silva is just selling a fight thing. Brazilians don't do that. If they look angry it's because they are angry. It's considered low in Brazil to act like someone you're not. It's part of the whole machismo thing they've got going on.

While I don't like what Anderson did I can say this; the hype these guys created, real or fake, is probably the most anticipated fight for me ever. I can't wait until the ref says "get it on" and Chael goes charging across the octagon head down, I can't ******* wait.

I'm a AD fan, when i saw the cheap shot i was really bumped !
but tbh, i didn't like the action from Silva, and i think he should be fined or warned.

nonetheless, Chael deserves it < fan boy

I wish people would drop the 'Anderson is so humble, and because he's Brazilian, he can't be fake' nonsense. Anderson Silva is as egotistical as Jon Jones and every bit the prideful douchebag. At least Jones doesn't run from that reality anymore.

Silva is a damn good fighter, but his 'humble champion' routine is precisely that. He's arrogant. He's in love with himself. And he's a total dick when he wants to be. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with this, aside from his wilfully blind fans.

Silva isn't JDS. In fact, he's nothing like him. JDS would be my definition of the humble Brazilian champion.

If they don't fine Anderson for doing this we're going to have lots of guys doing this. It doesn't have to be like 25% of his purse but something that is enough to get all the fighters attention.

Any of you that are naive obviously are ignorant to the fact that Anderson aimed that shoulder at his chin hoping it would drop him or knock him off balance. He wants to embarrass Chael and he's going about it the wrong way.

Anyways I'm sure I'll get flamed for that but the fact of the matter is that this needs to be addressed in a clear manner that this isn't acceptable or this kind of stuff will keep happening until it blows up.

That was physical violence? It was pretty much the same thing that happen Tuesday, but nobody was bitching back then. If Silva had punched him or done something else maybe it would constitute physical violence.

I can't believe people are overreacting over this, if any of you ever played football, have u ever chest bump your opponent for the hell of it or done something which is classify as unsportsmanlike just to provoke a reaction.

Chael sonnen did not react to it, in fact i'm sure he loved it.

All this talk about fine SIlva is just ridiculous, go look at the history of the UFC there a moment like this all the time. COle Miller,Evans,Diaz, all guilty.

REMEMBER WHEN CHUCK GAVE THE FINGER TO WANDY AT THE WEIGHT INS?THEN WANDY WENT AFTER HIM?
