This last fight, Chael said a lot of messed up stuff but never crossed any real boundaries. Everything can be attributed to hyping the fight.

Anderson crossed those boundaries multiple times by cheating in the octagon and striking him at the weigh ins.
You don't think making lewd comments about someone's wife is crossing the line? Just out of curiosity, what would your reaction be to someone who said stuff like that about your wife or girl?

They're just words. Sure, it's pretty foul, but at the end of the day they're just words. Nothing in the rule book against them. Just because he said some foul things he can't get a fair fight where both contestants follow the rules?

There's never an excuse for cheating, especially that openly.

Good for Chael, apparently most of the Chael legion around the web got "trolled" as hard as anyone by him as their blind hatered of A. Silva is apparent so long after the fight, even when Sonnen himself seems to have forgotten the whole deal.

So suck it, 2-0.. cry me a river.

That was a funny phrase. "To cheat openly?" Anderson did what he did on pourpose and he was called the attention by the referee and stopped.

After 20 seconds of straight shorts pulling. 20 full seconds. If it was 5.. it wouldn't be that big of a deal.. but 20 seconds?!?! 20 WHOLE SECONDS?! How is that not insane?!

Thing is, I'm not a hater. I love Anderson Silva, I've never cheered against him, I just didn't root for him in this fight because Chael Sonnen makes me laugh. Anderson is the best fighter in the world, he didn't have to resort to breaking the rules to beat Chael, he could have done it fair and square.

And no, it wasn't hold for a couple seconds and let go, it was straight holding for a full 20 seconds. Which stopped a takedown as well as lead to some cheap punches in which Chael couldn't escape from. It's despicable.

I'm gonna give this a go.

Yes, you are correct. He did hold to his pants denying a takedown and followed by a few punches, but what exactly are you trying to prove? Man at the end of the day, hell even Chael has said it, they are in a fight. The shots thrown by Anderson while holding his shorts were not even 50% power. Honestly I think he did it to get in his head. Chael openly admitted he would have grabbed his shorts if he had thought of it.

All i'm saying is, people need to stop pointing out little things and dwelling on them. They are fighters. I can guarantee you that fight would have went exactly the same direction without Anderson pulling his shorts. He still would have thrown a backfist and got kneed and folded.

I love Andy, like Chael cause he is funny but your argueing with yourself almost. If you are a true Anderson fan you would know that he would have won that fight without any of the minor technicalities.

I'm not here to prove or change anything. In my opinion, if he didn't hold the shorts, he would have been pressed against the cage longer and might have been taken down again, but that's all maybe's and what if's. It just makes me mad that it happened in a championship fight that I've been looking forward to all year.

Still an Anderson Silva fan, but he lost damn near all of my respect doing that.

In sparring I've grabbed shorts on accident, gives you a HUGE freakin advantage, more than I thought it would. Chael looked like he broke after it as well, and the fight ended.

I'm just salty, I would have had no problem if Anderson won any other way, but cheating in a championship fight because you lost the first round in a horrible way is just... sad
