Yes! More Sonnen please!! Awesome stuff. Possibly even cooler that he's using old tag lines and interview material.

It would honestly not surprise me if he purposely copied the speech, just to have someone say he copied it just so he can troll and say it's his original speech. The guy is like Lex Luthor where even his fails are on purpose for bigger wins.

im not that botheres that he copied the speech, thats just chael

just seems abit silly after almost losing and putting in an average performance

just like the fake belt thing. not a hanging offense, but loses abit of credibility in my eyes. the post fight interview is such a good chance to be humble and praise the other fighter

even having said that, his little performance wouldve meant something if he looked good

i liked his post-fight press conference comments tho

Favourite Fighters
Anderson Silva
Mark Hunt
Bisping
Fedor
Machida
Pettis
Aldo
McGregor
'John' Wayne Parr
Nathan 'Carnage' Corbett

Because Chael was supposed to be this huge favorite going into the fight.

So???

Basically Bisping looked great for being "Bisping" and Chael looked mediocre for being "Chael". But thats different from what people have been saying.

He could be possibly refering to the judges decision and how it helped Chael. Takedowns-50 points, effective striking-1 point, that kind of thing. Or maybe he was talking about Chael looking 'average' comparitvely when taking into account his last performance against Stann.

I thought the fight was interesting. I personally had Sonnen winning by complete domination but that was obviously not the case. Bisping did way better vs a fighter of Sonnen's caliber than I ever would've imagined.
That said, up until this fight I had Sonnen winning the rematch vs AS, but now, if the same Sonnen shows up vs AS as showed up vs Bisping, I don't think AS will have much to worry about.
Even though I enjoyed the fight, i can't help but feel a bit dissapointed in Sonnen (not to take anything away from Bisping), but at this point it would seem that AS is fighting in a class of his own.
I also don't believe in the "he's holding back so his next opponent will underestimate him" theory. Once you get punched hard in the face, you're not going to 'hold back' anymore.

Anyone else feel that way? Maybe I'm just off here, i don't know ...

Favorite fighters:

1. Connor Mcgregor
2. Dominick Cruz
3. Joanna jedrzejczyk
4. Anthony Pettis
5. Ronda Rousey
