It actually reminds me of the sort of thing Greg Savage..who I generally despise was talking about when he said a lot of MMA fans aren't really sports fans.

And that in a lot of ways they are sort of the least common denominator.....

I can't see any other way that so many dudes think this Sonnen guy is somehow groundbreaking and entertaining.


It's groundbreaking if the only other sport you've watched is competitive eating. Because honestly, Fuzzy Zoeller would probably give Sonnen a run for his money.

Sonnen's pretty funny and can hype the shit out a fight, but yeah pretty much. He's no Muhammad Ali. Although now that I think of it, it just goes to show how wrestling got shit. Muhammad Ali took his persona I believe from Gorgeous George, and people thought he was a genius for channeling a professional wrestler into his boxing character. Sonnen doesnt it now, and people say he should feck off to the WWE with all his fake and stupid shit talking and leave the industry too the fighters.

I did not detect any hype, trash or disrespect toward GSP nor any line suggesting he would walk through GSP. For those lines he was merely highlighting his improvements as a fighter and saying along being a heavy puncher he is still a well rounded grappler on his way up.

No, I'm serious.

Fuzzy Zoeller was a notorious jokester/shittalker on the PGA tour.

And some of his zingers are much more clever than the crass stuff Sonnen has written for him.

Look em up.

Sonnen's just one of the best thats been in MMA. Doesnt mean much in such a small sport, but theres always going to be someone that brings the out of cage antics into the spotlight and he was the first to REALLY do it, talking himself into the Jones fight and such.

GSP will DOMINATE Hendricks.

I'd love for the UFC to make that fight.

Maybe it is? His hands are powerful but overrated.

You could go into Blackhouse and their water boy probably has better technical and diverse striking than Hendricks. Yet that is the great next challenger who is going to put on a striking clinic vs GSP. :rollseyes:

Power is the equalizer my friend. Kampmann is miles ahead of johnny didn't matter. Thing with Hendrickson you don't get second chances he can make a hundred mistakes and you need to only make one and it's over. Reminds me some of Henderson. I think George would beat him but I wouldn't be shocked if johnny stuffed a take down and counter wrestled long enough to land a shot like Condit did.
