When Wanderlei Silva is humiliating you face to face in a verbal situation, you've got problems.

We've still yet to see the comedian Chael actually challenge a fighter face to face and engage in a verbal battle of words. Well, the only time we actually witnessed some one stand up to him was when he was locked in a car with Wanderlei Silva and he just sat there as silent as a lamb with nothing to say.

Chaels interviews can be funny, but they are all rehearsed and planned out, he probably went over that post Stann fight speech in his head over 100 times.

That's because Chael Sonnen is a promoter, not a piece of trash. Looks like you're part of the "absolutely naive" crowd I talked about earlier in the thread.

I know exactly what Chael is doing. He's talking a bunch of rubbish that he doesn't actually believe to promote himself.

That doesn't mean it's fine or okay. Whether he believes his owns words or not, joking or not, some of his remarks have been highly disrespectful and he should have to answer for them.

He was locked in a travelling car with Wanderlei Silva and he could have explained himself to him right there and then. Instead he chose to remain silent and nod his head with a trembling bottom lip like the coward he is. After Wanderlei confronts him he then continues to "promote" himself and talk more trash about him.

Chael is a real life troll, a cheat and a fraud, but damn his overly rehearsed media interviews are quite funny, right.

Anything beyond that is just being absolutely naive. CroCop taking Chael so seriously is sort of disheartening, I'd think CroCop to be smarter than that.
This is only true some of the time. Sonnen says equally stupid things in perfectly serious setting, like for instance, a US courtroom, or before the athletic commission.

Yes he does clearly say some things purely for hype, but that doesn't mean someone is naive to consider him a liar/thief/cheater/idiot etc. It's just as obvious that he is those things, as well as someone who hypes fights.

The confrontation was being video taped. If Chael told Wanderlei what he really thinks about Brazil, it would hurt his marketing value. It was just an awkward position for Chael and all he said was "Sure" not giving Silva any kind of satisfaction really.

Very few things in life are pure, honest, and noble. Sonnen is an entertainer and he entertains a lot of people. I'd rather someone be a fake a$$hole and actually be a good person than a fake good guy and actually be a bit of dick. Fake assholes can at least make you laugh but fake good guys ... its just gross.

lol, 'quivering lip'. You do like to exaggerate/distort/completely make things up.

At the end of the day, Chael Sonnen steps into a cage with men who could beat the absolute piss out of you, myself, and 3/4s of this forum. To even have the audacity to label him a 'coward' is fecking retarded.

I actually think Chael is very, very clever. In the true political style he knows how to build up something to boiling point. He knows the UFC is a business, and a business based on selling PPV's and putting asses in seats, and no better man for the job.

I have no problems with what Cro Cop said... Sonnen is an absolute facktard. And while some people claim to be amused by him... I hate the fact that he is acting like a jack@ss to get attention to he can get fights.

I really fear what this is going to to for the UFC in the future when more people start trying to take the route of acting like a jack@ss to get fights.

I don't want the UFC to turn into WWe. This should be an athletic competition... and sure there can be personalities... but Sonnen is just taking this too far.

This is a beautiful post.

You have no problem with CC's crude, over the top insults because Sonnen is a (stupid crude insulting made up name) who makes over the top insults.

You generously allow for the fighters to have personalities .... just not ones that you don't like.



Tennis anyone?
