Chael Sonnen Declaring War on Anderson Silva

It’s going to be nice to have Chael Sonnen back in the UFC.  He’s a certain type of asshole.  The type who prefers the cutting remark to the overtly insulting one.  The type who will sell your house and/or beat you up.  The type who might ask you what time you got up this morning, just so he can tell you, no matter how you respond, that he had already been up for hours at that point.  In other words, he’s totally sweet.

From the sound of things, he isn’t interested in just dipping his toe in the UFC middleweight waters, either.  He’s doing a cannonball aimed straight at Anderson Silva:

I’m not going to the UFC with a white flag. My flag is red, I’m declaring war. It’s always like that, all fighters when he grabs the microphone says the same thing, they challenge every fighter in the world, except Anderson Silva. A lot of folks don’t have what it takes, before even fighting they’re all ready yellow. I’m not going to do that, it would really disappointing to my fans. I’m the only fighter who wants to fight him, and the only one who has what it takes to beat him.

When I get to the UFC and they give me a microphone his is the name I’ll call out. I don’t think he’s as good as everyone says. He’s a really good fighter, sometimes fantastic, and he really deserves to be champion. But I can surely beat him, and who knows he might beat me too. Anything can happen. But the risk he runs is the same as I do. I’m trying to find out who the real champion is. I noticed that every time they interviewed Anderson and asked him if he’d fight Paulo Filho, he’d always avoid the subject. And Paulo Filho would do the same. I heard a lot of people say Paulo Filho is a better fighter than Anderson Silva. So let’s think about it: if I can beat Paulo Filho, I can surely beat Anderson Silva too.

That’s some good self-serving reasoning there, Chael.  One could point out that the first time you fought Filho you did not beat him.  One could also point out that he spent most of the rematch looking like he was coming down from mescaline, and still you only won by decision.  But at least the UFC has a ready-made middleweight bout for Silva.  Just a little something in between superfights.  That’s always nice.

That sounds all good and well, but his only chance is to win is a long boring decision. Thats who you want to hold the belt and represent the UFC and MMA?

LOL thats what I was thinking!

Didn't Sonnen grind out a decision win that was against a truly pathetic looking Filho? And didn't Forrest submit Sonnen from the bottom with a triangle? So his stand-up isn't that great, and his submissions aren't that, how is he going to beat Silva exactly..?

Silva should fight Sonnen on an undercard of one of Silva's headlining superfights
Bootylam!- December 4, 2008 at 2:53 pm
But Sonnen's been practicing his low jump/leg dive scissor kick submissions so he has a chance! [ what the hell was that?]

Thank You Tyler. Anyone that thinks Sonnen can beat Anderson is out of their fucking mind. Sonnen is not even on his level. He should have kicked the shit out of Filho in thier second fight. By round two Sonnen didn't even have enough power in his punches to hurt Filho. What makes you think he'd be able to last a round, even 2 rounds with Silva? Sonnen is a loud mouth that thinks he's better than what he really is. I hope he gets his ass kicked 3 straight fights and is out of the UFC. Fuck him. My little sister could kick his ass.

Has anyone ever knocked down Anderson Silva? Cause it seems to me he took some serious pops in the Henderson fight, he takes a hella big knee in the first round but I could be mistaken, I think he should go againest Ryo again, just so people can stop bringing up that luck ass submission, even tho it was pretty kool to watch

its funny how everyone thinks that anderson silva will bowl over all of his opponents. then they are all pissed off when someone with a punchers chance knocks him out. anderson silva is the best UFC champ does that make him pound for pound in the world. he never even beat chonan. it is to laugh. sonen has as good of a chance as anyone with decent ground game and strikes. one punch it could be over..either side. he wont fight filho, he would never rematch henderson, and hes been fed cans for a long time...i would go as far as to say dan henderson was the only name he's beat in awhile. he can dominate franklin but thats what happens when you have someones number and they refuse to change thier style.

henderson vs silva II
Nog vs brock
penn vs florian
couture vs evans
maia vs palhares

So basically Sonnen is saying that he thinks he can beat Silva with lay and pray. It might work...
Jcast- December 4, 2008 at 7:23 am

Jcast- December 4, 2008 at 7:20 am
haha Sonnen????? REALLY??? FUCK IT LETS GIVE HIM A CHANCE.......

Sonnen is a joker. His hype style belongs in the WWE. I hope this fight comes to fruition. Sonnen would not make it out of the first minuite.
filmdrunk- December 4, 2008 at 4:48 am
Fuck this dude. Filho was just standing there waiting to get punched and Sonnen played paddy cake with him the whole fight.
tyler- December 4, 2008 at 12:59 am
Keith Jardine would ruin you.
Speedy- December 4, 2008 at 12:56 am
This is the same Chael Sonnen that fumbled around to a decision with a braindead Filho preoccupied with talking to a hallucination of Jesus he was having at the time. I'm sure Andy is very concerned.
ihatejardine!!alot- December 4, 2008 at 12:50 am
i hate keith jardine!!!!!! no but for real, he sucks!

for your winner by kockout... Anderson " The spider" silva!!!

Chael Sonnen will get beat up like GSP did matt serra and matt hughes and jon fitch and BJ " the cock sucker" penn!

Silva has laser guided hands!
Doink the Clown- December 3, 2008 at 9:03 pm
Chael Sonnen would get his ass handed to him by Silva. Hell even Jason Mcdonald would tap him out. Give me a break
Wildcard- December 3, 2008 at 8:17 pm
Chael Sonnen is in MMA what Rosie O' Donell is to giving men blowjobs.
Wildcard- December 3, 2008 at 8:07 pm
Chael Sonnen Vs Anderson Silva.....I will cuf off my dick wait a day or two go to Dana White's house and light myself on fire if this fight is ever booked all i have to say about Chael Sonnen as a fighter.
Poop Chute- December 3, 2008 at 8:05 pm
Chael Sonnen daggered my asshole last night.
steve- December 3, 2008 at 7:07 pm
sonnen/filho 1 was great.
2? wtf? that was a lot of hype for an average fight.

sonnen/silva though- i'll give him credit- it's a better fight whatever else is left for silva in the ufc. maybe to even the odds silva will take some ecstacy just to offer sonnen a familiar situation?

i'll give him a better chance than cote, that's for damn sure.
