I don't blame Sonnen for doing this.
Mind games are always enertaining, if they don't offend others.
Sonnen is not stupid, he knows what he's doing.
All the attention is focused on Silva right now...maybe he thinks his comments can influence "The Spider".
I doubt it...but Sonnen seems to enjoy himself.

This is but one jab out of many, some of which have been quite good. The thing about Anderson Silva fans is, they claim that GSP fans and BJ fans are notoriously bad for ganging up on anyone who dares speak against their heroes, which is funny, given that Silva fans are much worse. I'm shocked Sonnen has yet to be lynched for daring to speak out against the mighty Anderson. Look at how upset people are getting over such a harmless remark, and this thread has only just begun!

There's a difference between statements like 'Silva is boring' and 'All GSP did in an MMA match was prove he could out-strike, out wrestle, and potentially out-submit me'. One actually warrants backlash. The other does not. One is ridiculous and bordering on the absurd. The other is a lighthearted jab, which is all most of Sonnen's comments have been. I just don't see the need to get upset or defensive. Look at the good that comes from it. Chael is winning fans with his witty retorts and ability to back them up... but he's also gaining a boatload of haters. He's generating interest all around, whether you want to see him untangle the web of The Spider, or get his teeth knocked down his throat.

How many people are talking about Silva vs. Maia? Two uber talented, yet soft spoken Brazilians are going to war on Saturday, and there's hardly been any discussion about either, let alone their upcoming bout. But how many people will be talking about Sonnen vs. Silva when their fight rolls around? I'd be willing to bet my account that these forums will be hustling and bustling that week. Smack talk, to an extent, is needed it seems. Even for us die-hard and hardcore fans. Chael is selling his fight, and selling it well, without being overly disrespectful... the difference, however, between he and someone like Dan Hardy is that you'll be able to rely on Sonnen to bring the noise in more ways than one come fight time.

Thats pretty rich coming from the guy with the most boring, robotic, monotone voice on earth.

He should watch his second fight with Filho.

It's hilarious how the guy downgrades his teammates when he trash talks (Henderson) and is now poking at someone (Maia) who completely dominated him within 3 minutes.

Yes, Sonnen's trash talking is funny, but not for the reasons he wants them to.

You're just a cook...

It isn't Silva fans. It is just UFC fans who are annoyed over how Sonnen gets pub for acting like a tard. The guy is annoying.

You speak the truth in this phrase.

But let's not forget Silva has to defeat Maia first.

This.

Picking on fighters for not starting anything and being pretty boring when they speak? How sad is that? Just shows that he values when a guy talks more than when he fights. I along with everyone else can speak the same about his fights. I'd rather be a boring talker than a boring fighter...that is for sure.

This guy is running for something? The guy has about as much common sense as a bag of twizzlers.

And this talk about selling the fight, I guarentee you if Sonnen/Silva main events this year, it will be in the bottom 5 lowest buy rates of any PPV this year. So I don't buy that selling the fight shit either. The guy is just a tool. Because no one gives a shit about Sonnen, plain and simple.

I'm kind of tired of this idea that no one can say anything bad about Anderson Silva. Sonnen doesn't think the dude is invincible and wants to test himself. I'm glad someone has something to say about anderson the mighty
