Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Today’s Silva vs. Sonnen Staredown Got Very, Very Uncomfortable [VIDEO]


Yes, Anderson Silva initiated contact. Yes, he appeared to lunge in for a kiss at the 1:05:35 mark. Yes, it took Dana White and two other dudes to hold him back. By comparison, Chael Sonnen was cool as a cucumber during the climactic staredown at today’s UFC 148 press conference. Congrats, buddy, you’re in his head. Now what?

Silva looked pissed off at the staredown with Vitor Belfort. We saw how that shit worked out.

That looked to me like Anderson is trying to convince himself that he's a bad ass who will be able to stop Chael from doing what he did the first time. Can he? Maybe. Will he? We're about to find out.

Son en that fought stand shows Silvia's in trouble. Sonnen that fought bisping shows it will be quick.
I still halfway think they call and plan this shit.

What? Please proofread your shit before you hit post. Son en that fought stand shows Silvia's in trouble? Wow. Silvia who? Tim Silvia? It's Anderson SILVA. Sonnen fans are idiots...

Chael Sonnen and Anderson Silva reminds me a lot of Ali/Fraizer

I don't understand the hating on Andy for this. This is great for the fans for a couple reasons:

1. We don't have to fear a tentative, tactical strategy from Silva as he has been known for in the past. He could easily just sit on the outside and pic CS apart.

2. We have never seen this out of Silva before. He has defended his MW title 9 times and never showed this kind of emotion. He is only a few fights away from retirement and we get to see the pissed off, blood thirsty side of Silva-something we have never gotten before. This whole situation is a blessing.

I totally thought they were going to make out. Talk about animal magnetism...

I find it funny as hell that Anderson is acting like a bleeding cunt. I can't believe Sonnen is so far in his head, but they have both said some seriously harsh shit to each other and all I can really hope for is that the fight last long enough to enjoy, and that when it's over, whoever wins has the common sense NOT to do something stupid like hold a submission to long OR hit the other one after the fight. I would like a clean sanctioned fight that really gets everyone excited. I think Chael is full of shit, but I also think Anderson has been exposed and Chael has drawn the blueprint on how to beat Anderson. I also think he has got Silva to worked up to be able to withstand the whirlwind of kicks, and very accurate punches coming toward his head. We will see saturday.
I personally would love to see Anderson lose just to see that cocksucking look on his face as he throws a tantrum.

Personally speaking, I would love for Chael to be victorious this time around. Yes I am biased because I am a Chael Sonnen fan, but also because it would most likely set up Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen 3. I can't see Anderson retiring until he really and truly puts a beating on Chael. Not to mention how much money the UFC would make off a third fight. Regardless though, lets all hope that these two have an epic encounter on Saturday.

So , what was Spider thinking ? I really don't care . I can tell you this though , Spider isn't going home with the belt on his waist . It's going to be much of the last fight they had . Only thing though , Sonnen is going to win the belt . And that's that .

People seem to think Silva being riled up is a bad thing... I would agree for most fighters, but I'm stoked to see a pissed off Silva, I bet it's gonna be nasty! If you're sitting in the front row you might get to take home Sonnen's head.

This is actually an educational film showing that the English phrase " kiss your ass goodbye " is often misunderstood by Portuguese speaking Brazilian fighters.
Crow42- July 3, 2012 at 4:34 pm
No TRT , Fuckkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!
XENOPHON- July 3, 2012 at 4:33 pm
@Fitz - huh, Sonnen looks like he has lost some considerable muscle mass. Side effect of cutting weight, possibly.
Richard Fitzentite- July 3, 2012 at 3:42 pm
The look on Dana's face @ 1:05:35 is priceless. I think that Chael is going to be able to drag him down and pound on him just like last time and Anderson knows it. I just hope Sonnen has had time to finally look over those Grappling Master Volume 1 & 2 JiuJitsu Training DVD's by Gene Lebell that he got for Christmas.

Chael got an erection from that.... Typical.
warchief65- July 3, 2012 at 9:11 pm
Savageleto , only you would know ......... typical .
XENOPHON- July 3, 2012 at 3:20 pm
@SocraticMethod - maybe he said "this second fight isn't rigged, you don't have TRT, and now I see your scared."
XENOPHON- July 3, 2012 at 3:16 pm
Look like Silva is going to bring that can of whip ass. He is both fast and accurate. Absent the TRT, will Sonnen be able to walk through the barrage of strikes to place Silva on his back?
Ruger429- July 3, 2012 at 2:48 pm
Silva was just being stupid. He let Chael know he's in his head by acting like a school boy. Like Chael would actually fear that Silva would attack him and the only thing saving him was Dana's ability to hold Silva back.
bigpurn- July 3, 2012 at 2:40 pm
I equate Silva hater to Lebron and Tiger haters. No matter how good they are. No matter who they beat or how they win, haters will always hate. Silva is going to hurt Sonnen and that's the truth.
war Sonnen- July 3, 2012 at 2:18 pm
Silva looks sad that everybody keeps asking for Chael, i can't wait for the Anderson train to derail. i am so stoked on watching Silva get muffed up again, hopefully this time Chael doesn't get too cocky like last fight and get a mouth full of Anderson's balls again.
JPfighter-DAMMA- July 3, 2012 at 1:51 pm
Anderson must have misinterpreted "staredown" for "mating ritual".
SocraticMethod- July 3, 2012 at 1:45 pm
There was no kiss. He leaned in and said something. I imagine it was derogatory.
PHISTAKUPHS- July 3, 2012 at 1:40 pm
It's funny that Chael clams up when confronted face to face. He doesn't look calm to me. Looks like he has shit talkers remorse.
Richard Fitzentite- July 3, 2012 at 3:46 pm
Are you watching the same video as the rest of us? Silva is chomping at the bit trying to get in Chael's face and he just stands there smiling and waving to someone in the crowd. Did you expect Sonnen to go all "Stockton" on Silva or something?
beef_kurtains- July 3, 2012 at 1:01 pm
Chael clearly owns the shit out of Anderson's psyche right now. With Anderson carrying the collective manhood of brazil on his shoulders, I can't wait to see what happens to the southern hemisphere when Chael dominates his ass for another 5 rounds. This is going to be hilarious.

Chael dominates this fight for five rounds, neuters Silva in the ring, flips brazil the bird and walks out of the ring putting an end to the biggest ruse of pound for pound domination in the sports history.
