People today are falling more in love with trash talk and hype than they are the actual fights.

Sort of going the way of the WWE.

Pretty much all of Chael's talk is fake. Glad he decided to sit this one out.

I hear yah. I really do. I too think he goes above and beyond a little too much and would prefer interviews like this....


IF he's not talking about Bisping.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

If you're going to be a fighter in the UFC, you need to be fighting for one reason, and that is the championship. If the day comes when I realize that I just can't reach that championship, I'm out. I'm not going to stick around for a paycheck or for the applause of the crowd. I'm not in it for that. I'm in it for the championship, the one and only reason you should be in this sport.
I really like that. Can't believe it came from Sonnen.

maybe its his strategy, everyone knows that if ya piss bisping off he seems to fight twice as hard and trys his best to finish the fight just to prove a point. Bisping needs the animosity to motivate him, and if chael doesnt give him it, it will work in his favour.

Damn. I expected a verbal beat down.

Oh well. It's always nice to see two fighters have respect towards one another, especially when they're usually two of the most disrespectful fighters in the UFC.

I don't know, Chael wasn't afraid to talk about Andy, following Andy's fight against Maia, who barely said anything to set Andy off, so I don't think it has anything to do with not wanting to stir the beehive. Chael only goes full-Chael on people he decides not to like. He was really tamed against Brian Stan as well (because he respected him).

Definitely one of the better interviews. Anderson played your game it's time to play the striking game with him if you get your rematch for at least one full round with zero take down attempts.

I'm going with Bisping, but it looks like a UD for Chael.
