MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Anderson Silva Calls Chael Sonnen ‘A Loser in Every Sense,’ Criticizes Okami for Associating With Him


(“And you made sure my nose looks like a big-ass clove of garlic? Okay, perfect.”)

We weren’t expecting much trash-talk in the lead-up to UFC 134‘s middleweight championship headliner between Anderson Silva and Yushin Okami — but the Spider continues to be the aggressor in the pre-fight war of words. This weekend, Silva gave an interview to Brazil’s O Globo newspaper, and expressed disappointment at Okami’s association with longtime training partner Chael Sonnen:

You have to find the best person to train you, and I think he chose wrong…I will never line up with a loser, a loser in every sense. [Sonnen] did not win the fight (against me), (he) was caught doping, is being sued for various things, and is suspended from the UFC…Want to be a champion? (Be) allied with good people.”

In Okami’s defense, he started working with Sonnen long before Chael’s life imploded, and Team Quest was just one stop on Okami’s globe-trotting training tour. Plus, “good people” is a subjective phrase, isn’t it? I mean, other people might consider this guy to be a douchebag.

As you may recall, Silva spoke out last month about his first meeting with Okami — the 2006 Rumble on the Rock bout that famously ended with a DQ-via-illegal-upkick — claiming that Okami could have continued fighting, but basically puss’d out in order to pick up an easy victory. It seems like Silva is slowly working himself up into a one-sided rivalry with Okami. Whether that will lead to a better or worse performance from the champ…well, that’s always a mystery.

Anderson can STFU, who gives a shit what the Michael Jackson of MMA thinks? Chael has more win in his left, underdeveloped, testicle than Silva will ever have. Seriously, he talks about losers, and then he hires a washed up douchebag coach in Segal. Total hypocrisy.

Fuck off anderson silva nobody likes you. Havenet respected this dbag since he taunted and disrespected maia and then proceeded to get punches in the face by him and spend the rest of the fight doing the kaleb. If you are going to talk shit, smack the ground, and yell at the guy to bring it then you better fuck him up afterwards. Anderson is a big child.

What the fuck is a jelly bear??

I would never doubt Silvia fighting prowess, however these remarks are very cowardly.
Considering he got his ass handed to him for the entire match against Sonnen, then he made excuses after like his name was Tito Ortiz. Now he says all this crap after Sonnen is denied his license and denied his opportunity to coach opposite during his next season of TUF. What a big man you are.

Are jelly bears like gummy bears? I'm confused.

I am a fan of spider and just lost a ton of respect for him. He has whined about anyone bad mouthing him and goes bandwagon like this? Dude owned you for 23 min. Show respect. You been accused of hundreds of things.... assuming worst just made you as bad as those you bitch about. 80% begged for you to be cut after the maia clowning.... tell sores quit feeding you lines and fight assclown... leave the thinking to adults.

Awesome. Hating on Sonnen is so easy and fairly satisfying; like eating jelly bears. Yummmmmm jelly bears. Gotta go.

Go Spidey, call it as you see it dude,

The Spider is drunk on Steven Seagal's urine.

So does anyone have a time-frame for Senator Sonnen's return?
Stak40- May 31, 2011 at 12:56 pm
2 front kicks= 2 crazy KOs. I'd take awesomness over verbal herpes anyday!
agentsmith- May 31, 2011 at 12:53 pm
No shit, that's seriously hypocritical considering Seagal's just as much of a compulsive liar as Sonnen.

Harking back to his old days in Pride, Silva still insists that the best time to kick a man is when he is already down.
O Chan- May 31, 2011 at 12:27 pm
So by pre-fight smack-talk, Silva is really just taking jabs at Chael?

Talk about kicking a dog when it's down.

Never take the Spider's bait, lest you get caught in his web.
