UFC 136 Video: Chael Sonnen Challenges Anderson Silva to a Loser-Leaves-Town Match

(Props: Hothanzz)

Chael Sonnen might be the greatest pro-wrestler in MMA history. After his thrilling arm-triangle submission of Brian Stann at UFC 136 last night, Sonnen got on the mic, channeled his inner Ric Flair, and cut a promo directed at a single person — his arch-rival, Anderson Silva:

Anderson Silva, you absolutely suck. Super Bowl weekend, the biggest rematch in the history of the business, I’m calling you out Silva, but we’re upping the stakes. I beat you, you leave the division. You beat me, I will leave the UFC forever.”

Gotta love the Charles Barkley cameo at the end. So will the Spider take the bait? And how did you feel about Sonnen’s WWE-style hype-routine?

chael almost but not quite sonnen feelings must really be hurt. all those months preparing for his 15 seconds of whining to silva. if you notice he is still the same fighter. spider on the other hand evolves and is better every time we see him. so pack your bags "almost not quite" because when the rematch happens and he does lose is he going to overdose on steroids, slip into a deep depression and remain isolated from the world, go into politics, or even worse go to the wwe and use all his talking to fight john cena

Get Off Me Says:
Chael fights one way on the ground, to inflct damage on his opponent on the ground, not simply try to inflict damage to his opponent on the ground

Rick James Says: Come on, what am I gonna do? Just all of a sudden jump up and grind my feet on somebody's couch like it's something to do? Come on. I got a little more sense then that.
Rick James Says: Yeah, I remember grinding my feet on Eddie's couch.

Silva is just a man... he can be beat... and Sonnen can do it.
Dana would be a fool to let the extra bet happen though... cuz both outcomes would cost him a fighter.

You can say Chael dominated Stann and Marquardt, look at how he won those fights, how he dominated on the ground, confusing both guys, advancing position on the ground and even finishing Stann.
Had Chael stayed in Marquardt's guard and Stann's guard the entire time they were on the ground, it would be a carbon copy of the A.Silva fight(without the finish). As I said before, take a look at the fight, re-think the word dominate, don't confuse dominating someone by defeating someone. Truth is Chael found himself in A.Silva's guard, a BJJ black belt who has been on his back against plenty of opponents who he beats in the end. Sonnen was winning that fight, but when I think domination in a fight, I generally like to think the fighter who dominated the fight was able to gain side control at the very least on the ground.
Really, why did Chael not stay in Marquardt's guard or Stann's guard if he was dominating the fight already? Chael fights one way on the ground, to inflct damage on his opponent on the ground, not simply try to inflict damage to his opponent on the ground, I guess he hit Silva 300 times in their fight but I've never seen such a clean looking face after 300 strikes.
It's not about nut hugging on either side, it's more about qualifying Chael's performance and unfortunately acknowledging perhaps where and why it all went down the shitter in the last round. I don't think if Sonnen was passing guard at will and mounting his opponent like he did with Stann that he would have got caught in a triangle choke.

I actually fully believe that in their first fight, Anderson did have the rib injury he said. He looked off the entire night, and not just when he was on bottom. His footwork wasn't there, and he just didn't seem to be himself. So I think there is a good chance he will beat Sonnen pretty easily this fight.
So I fully admit that. But some of the anti-Chael folks on here are delusional about that first fight if they think Chael didn't dominate. Saying shit like, "Silva took everything Sonnen had, then submitted him when he felt like it", is just stupid. Chael was having his way with Anderson everywhere he wanted in that fight, and was submitted because he got tired and sloppy. I think a lot of it was due to the injury, but to deny Chael's dominance in that fight is just dumb.

Plan and simple Chael got caught but only after "Dominating" Silva both in the stand up and the ground game. Sounds to me like you have Silvas balls bouncin off your chiny chin chin. Dude if you where any gayer you would be elton johns fanny pack, go watch wcw clown
PHISTAKUPHS- October 9, 2011 at 4:01 pm
if chael was the comedic wordsmith you shriveled nutthuggers think he is, then why can't he come up with something a little more creative than "you suck". he went back to 6th grade on that one. By the way Silva was confused, not scared. Chael might as well ask dana for his walking papers now. chael will get his ass kicked in the rematch. he couldn't finish him last and he was juicing. he juiced and still lost.
HandsofGold- October 9, 2011 at 3:42 pm
The way I see it sonnen knocked down anderson twice in their stand up what other fighter did that? Oh and dominates 5 1/2 rounds then got caught any of you that has ever fought before and im not talking about fighting over a twinkie, knows sometimes you just get caught. What do you wanna see another shit fight with some fagget trying to pull guard for 5 fucking rounds or watch someone man up and go straight after silva. You guys sound fucking dumb go cheer on lesner and his garbage ass fight style and please ladies dont forget you lesner signs. He likes that

Sure, Sonnen may be a reality-shaping wizard with his crazy-rhetoric, but that is no match for Silva’s Neo-like ability to shape physical reality. Silva via death-blow.
mt59801- October 9, 2011 at 2:58 pm
Sonnen is a modern day reality shaping mother fucking wizard.
RaginAsian- October 9, 2011 at 2:33 pm
I think Chael is a pretty cool guy. Eh kills aleins and doesn't afraid of anything.
Get Off Me- October 9, 2011 at 1:50 pm
Gotta give it to Chael, last night he was exciting to watch fight and yap.
Here's the deal though. Sonnen couldn't get out of Silva's guard for five rounds. Stann was able to catch Chael while he was coming in once and it did so damage. Chael will get KO'd by Silva in their rematch. Presumably what Chael did last night to Stann is what he wanted to do to Silva in their first fight......It goes to show how much control Chael truly had in their fight, he couldn't advance at all against Silva, he tried to posture up and land bombs and really couldn't hurt the spider for 5 rounds until Anderson decided to end the fight.

This assclown will get destroyed by Silva.
RoJoegan- October 9, 2011 at 12:04 pm
Faux—you are correct: “Chael peepee have roid in it.”

I’ll agree that edhedicus knows his way around some ball issues.

Chael is a republican, and he uses his split from reality to allow him to say and believe insane things. Chael can pretend that he can control Anderson’s career, but that has no bearing on reality. Beside that, Anderson has already seen everything Chael can throw at him, and this time Sonnen’s less likely to be overly juiced up. Silva will be able to better move away from Chael’s wrestling and will embarrass him on the feet. We’ll see if Sonnen keeps his promise then. And don’t get me wrong—I appreciate Sonnen’s insanity and his beastly skills as a wrestler. Unfortunately for him, it is clear that his “hatred” for Anderson is a lot like a homophobic’s hatred of “gays”: Chael is sexually obsessed with Silva--that’s all I’m saying.
edhedicus- October 9, 2011 at 11:13 am
First off, that was awesome! Every bit as entertaining as you expect from Chael. He isn't crazy, he is brilliant. How many people are excited to see Fitch fight? Chael fights nearly the same way, yet we will all buy the PPV to see it.
Second, his testosterone was elevated by the most minute amount. Do we question Randy Couture about his replacement therapy? No. Why? Because he doesn't run his mouth and everyone loves Captain America. Get off of his little gonads folks, it is common for people who cut weight their entire lives to have ball issues.

Notice: Chael sonnen was hired to defeat Da Spider. In their first encounter, Sonnen's elevated testosterones was part of that hole plan to defeat Da spider. You must know, it's possible that he can't win without the help of this enhancement. But the pride behind his team allows him to cheat. The cost of glory requires you to steal or cheat if you are not chosen.
JohnnyBlaze- October 9, 2011 at 10:04 am
agreed. sure chael hypes a fight Great, no doubt about that. he is very entertaining in that aspect, but he is NO match for A. Silva. Silva would of dominated Stann just as well. I can't wait until anderson smashes his face and makes him look like a chump.
he says he isnt delusional yet he also says hes the peoples champ. Ok there bud, nice way to say that you Lost fair and square.
Dina White- October 9, 2011 at 9:48 am
All you Chael fans are nothing but dreamers...

Need you be reminded that Chael tapped out, quit the last time he fought the Spider? Not to mention he was full of illegal substance (read Roider) and suspended from the support. He cheated, he quit... He couldnt beat an injured A Silva.

CS doesnt deserve the rematch at this point but I hope he gets it. Anderson will KTFO CS in the next fight.

razzle469- October 9, 2011 at 9:14 am
Chael is awesome. That's one of the best post fight interviews out there.

MMA needs some of this show boating. EVERY sport needs because rivalries are what sells fights. It sure is better than hearing Dana give the usual irresistable force meets immovable object analogy.

Am absolutely pumped about the re-match. Go Chael!
