I'm sure he will cry because he lost your approval. Since that's why people post here

He's just hyping the fight.

MMA trolls, forum trolls, neither of them are anything new.

I actually really like Chael. I hate his political views, I hate his fighting style, and I hate when he says really ignorant things. But I really like him any way. I'll probably always root for him unless he has a rematch with Maia.

Still he gets absolutely no respect. Its the exact same reason Mir talks because he is always underated. Mark my words Sonnen will upset Marquardt , unanimous decision.

Yeah he comes out dickish, but I totally agree with what you said. I don't think he gets the respect that he should get. He's easily IMO one of the better MW's in the UFC and I don't think it would be farfetched to put him in the top 5 in the division. I think he will give Nate all he can handle and I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the upset. I still think Nate's the favorite to win, but that's only because I think Nate's right behind AS in ranking.

His problem is that he's always going against a bigger name.

The way he was talking about Anderson Silva recently, I don't think the guy deserves much respect these days. I used to be a big fan, we are both from the same area and I've run into him at local events here.

But geeez. The inteview he gave over at Cage Potato recently is just plain ridiculous:
Lately youíve been making waves with your comments about Anderson Silva, saying he actually speaks perfect English but hates the media too much to talk to them. I guess Iím wondering, if itís not a ploy to get attention, why go after Anderson now?

I didnít really say anything about Anderson. All I said is what you said there, and thatís no big deal. Once I destroy Nate Marquardt in a few days I will set my sights on him and I will really let it go. Believe me, when I sink my teeth into this guy, those comments arenít going to seem like anything. I was making a very fair observation. Anderson Silva speaks English. Any time the media comes around he has such disdain for you guys that itís Ďse habla Espanol.í He doesnít have to talk to the media, and in fact he refuses to, and yet the media goes out and strokes his ego and puts him on the cover of everything. Itís the craziest thing Iíve seen.


As you point out, he doesnít talk to us much and doesnít give us much to work with, so donít you think that maybe the reason the media is so hot on him is because of how good a fighter he is and not his personality?

I donít know if thatís it or not. I donít know who heís beaten in the top ten. He beat up a drunk Chris Leben and a one-legged Patrick Cote and every bum that could get a plane ticket to Ohio. He went up to light heavyweight, but how hard is that? Itís the easiest weight class in the company. He beat up some slow and unathletic guys up there. But maybe Iím wrong. Maybe he is that good. If he gets past Vitor [Belfort], and I donít think he will, Iíll sing a different tune. If he can beat Vitor it will change my opinion of him, but until then, I donít know. I donít see who heís beat thatís so great.

He beat Nate Marquardt.

I didnít see that. Did he fight Nate?

Yeah. Knocked him out.

Oh, I didnít know that.

Well, he did. And you respect Nateís skills, donít you?

Sure, absolutely. I respect Andersonís too. I respect all these guys and their skills, donít get me wrong. Iím just saying letís slow down on this stuff about Anderson being the greatest fighter ever. Thereís someone named Randy Couture that you might want to put your eyes on when youíre talking about the greats ever.
There is a little more but this is the relevant stuff.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Those comments were very douchy.

But I can't help wondering now, does Anderson Silva actually speak English?

Man he's been talking smack about anderson forever. It's going to be hilarious when Nate knocks his a** out on Saturday. Though in his delusional republican mind he'll still think he can beat Andy.
