Don't worry guys. Sonnen is just doing something he is one of the masters at...."Selling A Fight".

(a) he WANTS everybody to love him or hate him (no one in the middle). The folks that hate him buy as many PPV's (hoping to see his ass kicked) as the one's that buy to see their favorite fighter kick ass.

They ALL enrich him & bring him more media attention = money.

LOL - he's already got people saying forget about Dan Henderson (who is a much more legendary MMA fighter & Icon than he is)

(b) if he fights Silva & loses that day....he will call a press conference & pull his UFC membership card out of his wallet & slam it down on the table with all the media there and say "I'm a god damn man of my word & I'm through with this UFC organization"!

On closer inspection by the media cams....the card will say UFC "Unicorn Fishing Club" & everybody will be in an uproar as Sonnen with a bewildered facial expression will say...."You guys didn't really think I was quitting THAT UFC....the fighting one...if I did that...THEY WOULD LOSE THE ONLY TRUE MAN & FIGHTER in the ORGANIZATION.....no, we can't have that.

I mean, I'd like to quit THAT UFC, but we all know that only my shoulders are big enough to carry it!!!

The bigger the media circus = more money & attention for Sonnen. People searching YouTube for his quotes. Next will be a "We Love Chael" Website & a "We Hate Chael Website".

No way was what he said any kind of enforceable contract & DW would never have them sign anything like that. But he'll probably dig it..... more hoopla for MMA & UFC.

I don't think I'm saying anything new here or anything that most people don't already know.

By the way.....Sonnen IS A HELL OF A WRESTLER....& I'd like to see him & Silva fight again.

And after Sonnen KO's Silva with a "Front Kick" like Silva did to Belfort (wasn't it called a "Crane Kick" in the "Karate Kid" movie).....he just slowly turns around in the middle of the cage and looks at the audience with the look of pride and assurance that Mr. Miyaga had on his face when Daniel came through.

I think the movie ended with a freeze frame of this look on Mr. Miyaga's face. RIP Pat Morita

I'm not a fan of Chael the person, but I love watching him fight. Probably my favorite fighter to watch in the UFC.

I'd rather someone like Mark Munoz, Demian Maia, Yushin Okami, Chris Weidman, or Tim Boetsch hold the middleweight belt, but Chael will do just fine. I just want to see Silva lose.
...Why?

Fun to watch, but not my favorite personality. I think Silva's an assclown. Sonnen at least makes no bones about who he is. He doesn't try to pretend to be a role model, or humble, or nice. Silva does. I respect honesty over fake 10/10.

Does anyone know what Chael said to Joe before the actual "interview". Chael says something to Joe while he's putting his shirt on after he gets his hand raised.

Haha so true I can totally see that happening.

All we know is that his T/E ratio was over 4:1 from his piss test (16:1 I think he tested). Most people produce T/E in a 1:1 ratio, although there are some people who produce testosterone in a 10:1 ratio to Epitestosterone. Since most people naturally fall under the 4:1 ratio, the only thing the piss test does is indicate that there could be an external source of testosterone.
Does not mean he didn't use testosteron right?

He was allowed to use it, that's why he wasn't suspended about it, he was banned for discretion.

Most dominant performance of the night. Chael looked fab, he looked like the number 2 Middleweight we all knew he is and I think it's fair to say that he made Stann immediately regret asking for the fight. Thought that the post fight antics were brilliant! Don't get me wrong, i'm a fight fan first and foremost but I do enjoy and expect a bit of showmanship, and Chael has that aspect down to a T. Whether he was serious about the stipulation or not, Anderson vs Chael 2 should be one for the ages.
