Chael Sonnen face to face with wanderlei silva

Chael seems to be on the defensive on that one, he changes is attitude a lot face to face...



What do you think?

It's not working but I'm going to guess it's that old video of them both in a car? If so, then Sonnen could not have cared less as to what Wanderlei was saying.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I love me some Chael but he did bottle it on this occasion, but probably for the best because Wandy would be up for a fight if they got into it.

Yeah it's the old video, but I really disagree. I'm not sure he was scared of Wandy in a physical sense (although I'd argue that even a strong wrestler can get scared about the idea of confronting Wandy in a confined environment like that where Wand can just throw bombs at will) but Sonnen's shit talk is all about self-promotion, and he works better with preparation (i.e. time to write his slams and test them out on his buddies before tweeting them).

He had little to gain by tossing some off the cuff insults at Wanderlei then and there... better to wait until he's got the zinger's polished and can hide behind his smartphone.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I doubt he was scared. Sonnen is mostly trolling when talking smack, he doesn't actually act like that in real life so pretty much all he could was not pay much attention to Wandy, which I think he did. Plus, even though Wandy is a scary mofo, you have to agree, for a guy like Sonnen the new Wandy's face, the hat and his Wandish (english) isn't exactly that intimidating.

I've met Chael (in fact he lives a few minutes from me), and no he doesn't act like that in person, that I've seen. I think its an act, but at the same time I wonder if maybe he's just not acting out the immature and ridiculous part of him that he would normally suppress.

But I also disagree that Wand doesn't look scary, hat and facelift or no. Chael tries to put on an act but he's a fan of the sport as well as an athlete, he's seen Wand's Pride fights and knows what Wand has done to guys that he's gotten his hands on. And there's no way to shoot a takedown on a guy in a van... it's gonna be trading fists until one guy goes out and I think Wand wins that particular fight, Sonnen is not a standup fighter unless he can threaten you with takedowns.

This is exactly what I think might have been burned into Sonnen's brain as Wandy suggested he respect Brazil



Or maybe this

Still, to say he was scared is a bit exaggerated imo. At the end of the day the guy is a professional fighter, he can't afford to be scared.

I definitely don't think he'd be scared of Wand in a ring or cage with rules and a ref. Two feet away in the cramped confines of a minivan, I think its a little more possible.
