Cheap shot at the weigh-ins!

Anderson Silva shoulders Chael in the face at the weigh-ins.

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.

I don't think he needs fined for it. It's not like he straight hit him or something. He more or less nudged him. I think if anything it confirms that he is especially po'ed.

He ******* chest bumped him, the guy is a pro fighter for ****s sake if he can't take catching a shoulder in the face from two inches away he needs to pack it up and head home.

Yea, he probably should get a penalty of some sort. Either way, it's definitly on now. It don't matter if Chael was playing it WWE-style all along up till now. That shit won't matter to Anderson. They don't like WWE in Brazil, for them it's all about real emotions and real fighting and there certainly will be real fists flying in the octagon tomorrow.
