I dont know about you guys but ever since i started training at AKA i give people the exact same reaction Chael did to Wanderlei. I used to get "Tough" with people and run my mouth but now a days i just smirk and say "Ok buddy" "yeah?? Thats cool" and let them talk their crap. Because i know if it comes down to it chances are im not the one thats going to get beat up. I truly think thats exactly what Chael was doing.

"Sure... Thank you *smirk*"

As much as I love Wandy, Chael would drop him on his head and beat him up like a little kid for 15 long brutal minutes.

I dont think chael was scared of wand during this clip... it was more of an Ok whatever attitude.


I've seen the full version and wand was just coming off a knee surgery I think. He was walking with a cane and a limp at the time of this video

chael just looks like he doesn't give a shit. i found it funny when people said he looked scared.
it's not like there's any reason to be scared either, wanderlei isn't going to jump across the car and attack him.

I actually think Wand would win in a car or on the street and I think Sonnen thinks so as well. In th ring maybe not tho, lucky sub maybe but I doubt it.

Ya your right, there is no judges so chael can't lay on wandy for 25 mins without getting a rock or something to the head. However i don't think chael was scared, just trying to be professional.

Yeah and eye-poking, upkicks & a bunch of other stuff that makes you not want to wrestle. I dunno if Chael was scared, probably not since the chance of Wandy actually attacking him are very small. I think maybe he was a bit ashamed tho, or atleast I hope so.

U know what i don't get about Chael, i see all these people loving him because of his trash talking etc. But realistically in the octagon he aint no better than jon fitch. Both of those guys are skilled but boring as hell. If chael was not fighting anderson silva i would have done the same thing i did when he fought nate. Which was record that shit and fast forward it 25 mins to see who won the decision.

I totally agree, they pretty much do exactly the same thing only Chael uses freestyle type wrestling to get it down & Fitch drags down his oponent. But in the end its 3 or 5 round of topcontrol with alot of hard to watch punching with no power behind it. It kind of gives you the feeling of being trapped in an elevator.
