UFC 148 Weigh-In Video: Anderson Silva Outlands Chael Sonnen 1-0 in Significant Strikes

(Video: YouTube.com/UFC)

More so than any of the punches ‘The American Gangster’ landed on the champion during their first encounter, it’s been his incessant jabs since that evening that have caused the most damage. It may have taken a couple of years of unrelenting taunts, but Chael Sonnen has finally gotten under Anderson Silva‘s skin. Never underestimate the heart of a pretend champion.

Two weeks ago we saw Anderson’s cool demeanor begin to fade with promises of extreme violence against Sonnen. Things escalated on Tuesday with the champion violating Sonnen’s personal space, a press conference faux pas if ever there was one. Last night, however, the uncannily smooth Brazilian officially lost his cool, popping Sonnen with a shoulder to the face as the two squared off at the weigh-ins. I’m not sure if Brazil has area codes, but if so it’s safe to say which one Silva’s repping.

If you aren’t pumped for this fight, you’re dead inside. Actually, if you read this site, you’re probably already dead inside. So…just enjoy the fight, alright?

OPIO - yes, that is number two. And I think Xhael was shocked.

Sometimes I think you guys get your news second-hand from people who have read day-old articles from other MMA blogs.

The fake man vs. the batman? They're both starting to lose it.

Nod's in agreement. That shout out sounded minor league.

WWE is where sissy make pretend fighters talk. This is not WWE (not so far at leats).

He couldn't beat him (in a war of words), so instead of lowering himself to Chael's (pretend) level he buried himself far under that level with a sucker punch move at weigh-ins.
Classless Andy would be more at home on WSHH.

Come on you sissy twats. That's whats known has a love tap. Silva loves Sonnen. Least Sonnen could do was to love back. Must up TRT prespriction haha

Chael is like Rodney Dangerfield - "I get no HEspect"

I think after Forest retires Tito he comes out and distracts Silva allowing Chael to get the win and setting up the rematch we all REALLY want to see, Griffin-Silva II.
OPIO- July 7, 2012 at 9:00 am
Next move is sticking his finger up Chael's butthole in round 5. It's not illegal if you use your pinky.
OPIO- July 7, 2012 at 8:58 am
That shoulder pop was one of Seagal's secret un-illegal moves.

It's obvious Silva was trying to get disqualified. He scared.
