Right, but Chael won a fight nobody excpected him to win. It's like when Dan Hardy goes on and beats GSP, or Edgar goes on and beats BJ. You won't see a day without a Dan Hardy or Frankie Edgar Thread. He proved everybody wrong in this fight! The beauty of MMA

That upset was not as big as a GSP or PEnn loss coming up would be. If you think so then you were WAY too high on Marquardt.

Nobody gave him a chance in this fight. Look back at the betting odds. Marquardt was such a huge favourite in this fight. I agree not as ridiculous as the GSP vs. Hardy odds but close to it. I think he was +250 wich is huge!

Nate was a -450 favourite! You can call his win a miracle.

Its a good win and his wins lately should get applauded. Just too bad he has to act like a tard in the process of getting earned credit. Sad he has to call out Anderson Silva. He has been good lately but his career doesn't deserve the talk that he spews.

My biggest pet peeve is when people in general talk a bunch of crap that they don't back up. Take Tito for example. So far he has backed it up, but I am afraid he has bitten off more than he can chew. And I hope once he does get his ass handed to him he shuts his trap unlike Tito.

I don't have any hate for this guy, he backed up his talk in the last fight, he may just do it again. He's a well spoken smart guy-- props to him!

I LOVE to see someone come in a put Anderson on his back and test him.

Personally I am sick of hearing form Chael he is a professional fighting. His job is to fight the best and win. Don't know y he keeps on commenting on everything that is obviously. What is hw going to so go fight anderson and expect to lose, obviously he is going in to win. Its sad for a dude who has not accomplish anything worth bragging about having an ego this big. Imagine if he does accomplish something how big his ego will be.

It's a fine line, though. See: Frank Mir, Michael Bisping, BJ Penn.

Chael is slighty above Griffin in terms of Silva's challengers. The only person lower then Griffin was Leban.

Good luck Chael, or however u spell that g a y name.
