Anderson Silva returned to form at the weekend by smashing Chael Sonnen after being wrassled for the first round. It might not have lived up to the hype but we got to see both guys fight at their best, the ending of a highly entertaining feud (at least for now) and Silva addressing his only recent blemish to retain his standing as best P4P fighter in the world.
I thought I would be sick of the guy by now, but I am really finding Chael hilarious at the moment. But despite all the laughs, this guy is serious about fighting. He has Anderson Silva’s full attention and both guys look to fight with a mad intensity. The fight is tomorrow. If this fight only even meets half of the hype that has been surrounding it, then we are all in for a treat.
When I heard Chael Sonnen refer to himself as a “gangster”, I assumed he was being somewhat ironic. Turns out the guy is for real, check it out.
The UFC released a new promo video for UFC148 which features a compilation of the smack talk from Chael Sonnen over the years. All of this has led to Anderson Silva stepping away from his usual cool and calm personality to threaten the hell out of Sonnen like a bawss in a media phone conference last week. The rematch is only 9 days away so watch this video and allow yourself to start getting VERY excited!
