Brazil’s Vinny Magalhaes Responds To Heat For Helping Sonnen Prepare For Silva | Shut The F*** Up!

Believe it or not Brazilians are not too fond of Chael Sonnen.

It is because of this reason that if you are a Brazilian and you assist Sonnen with beating a Brazilian in the cage you might be coined a traitor.

Such is the case for many coaches in the MMA world. I have personally talked to some high level guys who have been very hesitant about helping Chael prep for Silva because of this very fact.

However, Ultimate Fighter finalist and BJJ world champion Vinny Magalhaes has no issue with it. To him it’s a job, but he did take the time to respond to his critics via his official twitter account and this is what he said.

“I do have all these responsibilities, so If you’re going to question why I’m going to train with Chael, why don’t you just pay me to sit at home and not go to Oregon, I will do that for you without a problem, but if you are not willing to do that, sometimes is just better not give your opinion and shut the fuck up before you get all your facts straight.

Fedor wanted me to go there train with him, when the rumors were that he was going to have a rematch against Fabricio Werdum (A Brazilian); did I go to Russia to train with him? No… Why I didn’t? Because there was not going to be any pay for my services. I will always put my family in first place, I don’t know if that’s how you guys think, but with me If my family depends on me, I will do whatever I can to provide them the best I can.

Also, I’m Not sure if it was noticed, but on the title of the thread it clearly says “HIRES”, I guess that makes it pretty clear that I’m not going there as a favor. And I guarantee that neither was Chael expecting me to leave my job and family just to help him as a favor.”

    I hope Chael can implement Vinny’s tips….

  2. Chael Sonnen medium rare steak says:

    Chael all the way

  3. Scotty says:

    M-1 must be taking most of his money or not paying him enough.. But Vinny is correct though, he was asked to come help sonnen and get paid for it not a favor.. Like any other job, someone offers u money to do something you do it.. Unless Vinny is making top dollar where he could turn down the job, he is going to work.. He is just looking past what Sonnen said about Brazil and getting paid! Not sure how much its going to help Sonnen against Silva but we will find out..

  4. mike r says:

    SEE!! Chael was right, this mother fucker speaks perfect english!!

  5. Chartmonster says:

    That straight up shitt! FK the haters..

  6. Xaninho says:

    Fucking Sonnen running his mouth about brazilians and now he needs one to teach him how to fight properly, stupid motherfucker.

  7. Really? Hating on this kid for working and doing what he does best?

    People need to get lives.

    Any one who buys into all the shit Chael says about brazil Prolly has more dead brain cells than Chuck Lidell. He’s obviously just saying that shit to hype the fight up… Chael has successfully trolled 95% of brazil and 100% of

  10. Dan "TRT" Henderson says:

    Chael isn’t gonna need the submission defense lesson because he WONT be able to get the takedown anyway. Without Roids he’s garbage.

    Silva by 2nd Round brutal TKO.

    • joe says:

      you’re an idiot. “without roids he’s garbage” – HE NEVER TESTED POSITIVE FOR ROIDS. Not to mention he is top 3 in takedowns in the UFC. Anderson’s wrestling is the biggest hole in his game. Mark my words Chael WILL get the takedown. He will get several takedowns.

      • Dan "TRT" Henderson says:

        Do you really have to be that friggen retarded?

        HEEELLLLLOOOOOOOOOOO!! Chael got suspended for a reason.
        His testosterone ratio was 16.9, where 4.0 is considered to be normal and his levels were over 3000 you dumb jabroni.

        And yeah he never tested positive for Roids.
        You need help, seriously.

      • Xaninho says:

        So he got a one year suspension because his jockstrap was too big?

        clueless fanboy alert.

  11. Luke says:

    But people don’t give a crap about the brazillians training in florida, with americans.. to beat other brazillians. Brazillians needs to shut the fuck and stop putting there countries pride first.

    • hem says:

      Totally agree. Brazillians need to shut the fuck up and be rational.

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      Totally agree, it’s not a national sport its an individual one. I get so sick of the Brazillians pulling that card. Respect to Vinny for being a pro and putting food on the table. I just wish he could improve his stand up and get in the UFC, his BJJ is sick, easily the best in the LHW division.

  12. Keyboard warrior says:

    Chael obviously talks shit to hype the fight, and guess what it work. Now the UFC is going to have its biggest event ever partly due to the fact that he trashed brazil. Oh and to all the guys saying he needs to learn how to really fight FUCK OFF he’s going for a world title for the second time i think he knows how to fight, while the only fight you guys have ever won was probably against some 120lb kid in high school.

  13. koolG says:

    Brazil needs to chill the fuck out u guys need weed in your life or somthing relax.

  14. Eagle says:

    Can’t fault the guy for joining the winning side. Especially if you’re a dirty Brazilian


    Just got a new name

  16. jbeamazing says:

    its funny but Anderson will be training in America for this fight if Brazilians were smart they would be more pissed that there people they support would rather be in America to train and the smart money is he will be using a wrestler from our country to train

  17. Jsndndic jobs an says:

    Sonnen’s T/E was 4x high, his testosterone was normal

  18. João says:

    We Brazillians are pissed? Know the facts. We don’t give a shit, I just want to see a good fight, if the winner is brazillian, usa citizen, alien or anything it really doesn’t matter.
    Just grown up and stop being angry about fights.

  19. Benedict Arnold says:

    I see nothing wrong with what Vinny did. Seems like a really good guy to me…

  20. No1 says:

    “what? My testosterones one tenth higher than the norm? Re-test that! You must have caught me on a low day”
    – chael sonnen at ufc 133 Q and A
    Lmao!! Chill bros just pass the weed

  21. Chael Sonnen says:

    Isn’t Vinny Italian?

  22. k says:

    I train with some Brazilians and they seem nice, but that’s just plain stupid, how violent and irrational they get about this sort of stuff.

  23. Nick says:

    I swear most Brazilians are retarded. Not to mention, they are some of the rudest fans in the world. If your gonna hate on a kid for working, why don’t you have someone follow you into the office and talk shit about your typing skills or something.

  24. Unbelievable tekkers says:

    If anybody is doubting vinnys skills they need to watch to video on YouTube of him vs fab werdum at the adcc in Nottingham! Unbelievable tekkers!!

  25. The natural says:

    This guys all juiced up too

  26. K2 says:

    Can’t blame him. He needs to make a living and financial longevity won’t come from his paycheck’s after each fight. Unless you’re like Chuck Lidell (who has an accounting degree) and invest your money wisely, you need to expand into training/teaching martial arts to make cash as well. Jorge Gurgel, Randy Couture, Wanderlei Silva, and etc… all have gyms to provide an income. Unless he ends up making movies and tv shows its good for him to break into the training/teaching business earlier.
