Chael Sonnen | Anderson's Skills Are Amateur | UFC NEWS

“All that happened was Anderson found himself in a fight for the first time. His skills are amateur. If you walk into a fight with your fists down, that’s amateur. I treated him like an amateur the first time and I’ll treat him like an amateur this time… The stakes are pretty high on this one. It’s not like I’m trying to score points on the guy, he’s trying to do damage to me… I’ve got two words for Anderson Silva: medium rare.”

Chael Sonnen took to today’s UFC 148 Media Conference call to discuss his fight in two weeks against Anderson Silva for the UFC’s middleweight championship.

In a rare role reversal it was Anderson Silva who threw out the low verbal blows of the day.

    So amateur that he made you give up? Made you quit? Made you tap and say uncle? stfu Chael “The Fail” Sonnen.

    • Rampage 2877 says:

      Well said

      • Axeholes says:

        – Sonnen is like the crying toddler at Walmart that won’t shut up.
        – Silva is like the parent who eventually has to put a smack across the kid’s face to get ’em to shut up.

        “Waaaa! I want the belt!…(*SMACK!*)…Huh-WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!”

    • Judge_Dreadz says:

      judge_Dreadz did you know is publishing your e-mail Muay@ ???????

      I’m sure thats why someone is able to use my username on here all the time and write stupid a’ss crap that I didn’t say. I don’t stoop to that level but i thought you should know your e-mail is out there for everyone to see

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Sonnen is easily the biggest low life scumbag to ever fight in the UFC. Any owner with charactor would have fired him after he was conicted in Federal court for Felony FRAUD and if that somehow blew by their Radar then he should for aure have been fired when he CHEATED with enough ROIDS to jump over the moon in atitle fight. How in the hell would he not be tested weekly throughout this training camp i will never know. UFC reminds me more every day of WWE. Dana welcomes steroid usage as long as you don’t get caught or you get a legal CHEATER exemption like Sonnen which EVERYONE knows he abuses year round

  2. Q says:

    We’ll be seeing a lot of posts like this one for the next few weeks

  3. some dude says:

    And new ufc middleweight champion of the world Chael P Sonnen… Thats P for perfection.

    • Xaninho says:

      P for Penis Envy….because Sonnen has none.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Silva Zombie Alert!!!

        • ThaGreenBandit says:

          Perfect analogy

        • ThaGreenBandit says:

          Phael cock gobbler alert!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          That coming from a homosexual that has Silva’s balls in his mouth all the time. Is that what you call Silva ball sucking now; ‘ThaGreenBandit”?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Hey I love love love to gobble cock. I have 2 personalities. Gay and super gay. And that is why WrestlingRules. Thank you very much. Time to gobble some dick. Bye guys.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          What a coward….hahahahahahahaha Nice hearing you James.

        • Xaninho says:

          Hahaha Silva Zombies……so you mean the Sonnen fanboys are all there?

          They aren’t denying Sonnen was juiced up. They aren’t denying he tapped? They aren’t denying he lost that fight? They aren’t denying he is a mediocre fighter with a mediocre record? They aren’t denying he can’t defend submissions?

          GTFO dude! When this is all over Sonnen needs to take his fanboys with him to the WWE. Then they can finally see him becoming a champ.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          So do you think BJ is a mediocre fighter with a mediocre record? Is that what you think?
          BJ – 16-8-2
          Sonnen – 27-11-1

        • Xaninho says:


        • WrestlingRules says:

          null = YOU LOSE

    • Fail Sonnen says:

      I think you’re mistaken. That “P” stands for pussy! Watch him tap again he tapped before the shit was even fully sunk in. If you talk that much shit you don’t tap you ride that shit till you go out or lose an arm (hard to tell he was in to different holds).

    • Perfection???lol have u been smoking crystal meth? the guy is 9-4 in wec or ufc fight and has finished only brian stann who was far outmatched on the ground and every single other fight has been decision and every one of his losses he has tapped. look up his stats he has 11 losses and 8 of them he fuckin tapped…he is a bitch. at that level if u want it bad enough u go to sleep. anderson set that shit up. there is a reason that was the first submission attempt of the fight. i just love it when people that dont train or actually understand what is happening in there try to make it out like they do.

  4. Tyler says:

    Damage…like what Silva did to Sonnen’s face from his back. Nice try, Chael.

  5. magoo says:

    lmao….medium rare

  6. rod stiffman says:

    RIP Sonnen. Your career was as pathetic as you.

  7. Rampage 2877 says:

    Its not chael that gives me the shits… It’s his douche bag supporters who try to speak like him. Silva kick his teeth in so hard that it shuts all these wwe supporters up!

  8. Paul Harris says:

    He’s got no chance. None at all. The last time Anderson really fought hard was when he took the belt from Franklin. And brutalized the poor guy. This time he actually wants to hurt his opponent. RIP Sonnen

    • Troll says:

      So he didn’t want to hurt chael the first time they fought? Fucking loser

      • Xaninho says:

        He just wanted to submit him. And guess what? He did!

        • chris says:

          Do you honestly think he let him kick his ass for 5 rounds to get the submission? LOL I hope not

        • Xaninho says:

          You call that getting your ass kicked? Those pitter-patter slaps Sonnen throws won’t hurt anyone. Even Arianny could ride those fagget slaps out for 5 rounds.

          And what every Sonnen fanboy seems to be forgetting is that after the fighat against Demian Maia, DW told Silva his next fight better be exciting.

          He made it look like Sonnen came close.

        • Cam says:

          Pitter patter slaps? Hahaha he dropped Anderson at least 3 times in that fight, if he would of chosen to capitalize any of those times, it would of been a short fight. But, sonnen let him get up every time for a good show for the fans.

  9. aaron says:

    this guy is awsome

  10. Jeff says:

    Delusional! Getting ktfo!

  11. Ed says:

    Who’s more wwe. Chael because he hypes a fight or Anderson wearing a fucking white mask to a weigh in/stair down. Opinions are like assholes. Every fuckwit has one

  12. Str8edge says:

    Ppl are retarded if silva has a tough night he wasn’t trying and when he beats people up he still wasn’t trying. We better get to see him try when sonnen makes him cry July 7th

  13. Xaninho says:

    Sonnen cried the first time….after he tapped like a crybaby suckass bitch.

  14. WrestlingRules says:

    It’s Gonna get good….It will be Soooooo Nice to see Silva’s head bouncing off the canvass over and over and over and over and over and over and over and oh yah OVER again..Sonnen will retire Wacko Jacko he can go make Seagal C-Movies….

    • Jaedr says:

      Remember when chael was touting Yushin Okami’s wrestling as being good enough to take anderson down? Training with him saying he was impressed by his skill and strength? Then look what happened to Yushin, he got mauled. Chael will see the same fate.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        First, what do you think Sonnen was going to say that Okami is terrible and NOT going to win?? Surely you realize Sonnen knew Okami would have a difficult time taking Silva down. I know you love Silva, but he just isn’t as good as Sonnen. He’ll show that in 2 weeks.

    • Jaedr says:

      and another thing, you are stupid for thinking anderson needs segal to make movies he has enough star power to do it on his own. and cut it out with the “whacko jacko” insult it makes you sound stupid.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Are you kidding me!!!?? NOBODY knows who Silva is outside of the UFC!!! Seagal has WORLDWIDE familiarity. Silva ABSOLUTELY needs Seagal for any movie exposure. He needs to work on his English too. Listen, I know the Wacko Jacko is a bit childish, but Silva is the one dressing up like Jackson….He asks for it…Is he a fighter or a Jackson wannabe????

  15. Judge_Dreadz says:

    This guy Sonnen can only win by decision..Silva by whatever he wants.Sonnens garbage

  16. Judge_Dreadz says:

    This guy Sonnen can only win by decision..Silva by whatever he wants.Sonnens wack

  17. Clay says:

    I plan on partying so hard when I watch this fight that I’m not going to remember it unless something insane happens

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Yah and your going to root for Silva aren’t you? pathetic an American rooting for a Brazilian….I’m disappointed in you compa….

      • Clay says:

        Its only because I’m a loyal fan amigo. I knew silva long before chael, but I wont be heart broken if he loses. If you ever fight silva or someone from Indiana then I’ll root for them instead

      • dogfart says:

        gives a fuck about patriotism
        I watch fights, i couldnt give a monkies about where someone is from if the fight good and they give a good show.

        cant wait for this fight, im a silva fan but I dont care who wins this one. its gonna be the best fight ever, the last one was fucking amazing to watch and so will this

        as a fight fan i can respect both fighters and i really dont get this patriotism thing. especially as america sucks ass

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Settle down, That’s cool dude you just like to watch two guys beat each other up and be able to see a good scrap. That’s cool. I happen to believe that I want ONLY an American to beat any non-American. I call it being patriotic to your own and I have no ill will to any foreihn fighter, Many who I admire, BUT would never root for them if they were fighting an American….So American sucks huh? What country do you say doesn’t???? Have you ever thought of changing your names to dogshit……….

        • Clay says:

          How does America suck? Sure we’re not the most economically fairing country, since we’re about 16 trillion dollars in debt. But we also give welfare to a forth of the country who doesn’t work or has kids or can’t support themselves. This is the land of the free. You can do what you want and be who you want without fear of prosecution. We owe everything to our country. Without America idk where I would be. I absolutly love it here, and I would hate to call anywhere else “home”.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You ‘ Da Man Clay…HooRah…

          but shit rooting for Silva damn dude. who could I fight from Indiana, I am in Iowa quite often.

        • Clay says:

          If silva wins I’ll talk shit to people in all the forums about how it was just a fluke. Even tho I believe he’s going to win. Lol how’s that

  18. MakeitAloopKick says:

    Kick yourself in the face Chael

  19. USA says:

    Fucking bunch of Oli North in here

  20. Gabi says:

    Why is it that if you think Anderson is going to win your on his nut yet if you think a still roided out dude it’s cool? That makes no sense. And the tough guy needs the roids to make his what is it 16 men and still loses the first time. And still he’s allowed to use again? And not at a normal level yet something insane and not normal. Idk about you but I see someone cheating as the lesser man. And country has nothing to do w this. It’s all about the fighter. You dumbass are making it about country. And think about this. If its about country you want the guy representing us to be cheating taking roids?

    • WrestlingRules says:

      First are you PERFECT??? yes??

      Second, We SUPPORT OUR own with all the warts and scars and failings. It’s called LOYALTY. You Think this piece of shit Silva is perfect?? At least his countrymen support him even if he doesn’t even live in Brazil but in Vegas.

      So YES I am a patriot and WILL ONLY ROOT for American fighters over any foreign fighters.

      You want to support a fighter from some other shitty country over an American? Go Ahead we fight for that right, but you can’t be counted on. Consider moving out of the USA if you can’t support her own. WIN, LOSE or DRAW…


      • Gabi says:

        Hahaha. This is a joke right. What does perfect fit into this? There is a lack of testarone due to previous roid use. If it was as bad as to where he needs as much he would of never wrestled in his life and been an obese person by 25. There is a difference between normal level and jut abusing for an edge. Same w pain killers, they can be used properly or abused. And please tell me how you fight for my rights.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          How do you know it was from steroid use? Are you his doctor? Do you think it could be from some other reason?

        • Gabi says:

          Umm simply because I have a basic understanding of the human body and anyone needs that much to be able to have life, then as a teen as his body is releasing hormones and testarone, to need so much on a normal basis that’s a problem that would have started in his teens. He would have never wrestled due to lack of motivation, as well as being scared and not having an alpha dog mentality. He would of never fought everything would be flight not fight. Unless its due to steroid damage. Randy and Hendo don’t take as much and they are way older. Chale is cheating and taking advantage. Idk about you but I don’t like people who cheat and if they need an edge especially if it’s due to harm they did themselves. Basically he’s saying he’s not man enough naturally that he needs so called legal roids. Especially at his age. It becomes a problem at 40 the earliest unless due to a serious medical problem. He would have simply never ever been into contact sports especially as he got older in college due to the lack of testarone. It’s simple and not something that happens over night unless a real medical problem. And the level of trt it’s self is insane. I’ve asked my doctor as well as other doctors including a age management doc that I know.

      • Xaninho says:

        During WW2 the Germans only rooted for their own too…

        • Zack says:

          Westlingrules has been successfully brain washed.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Not at all, I just believe that the USA and her Constitution is the Light of the world and we are SUPERIOR to any other nation that has EVER existed. Can you think of another that has been or is better??? Perhaps your lack of knowledge and not knowing that the USA is the BEST is the real brainwashing. You ever thought of that??

        • WrestlingRules says:

          So you think America is like socialist Nazi fascism?? Actually Holland is MUCH closer to Nazism that any other country in Europe. Well do you see America like Nazi Germany?

      • James says:

        At least your American!!! Totally agree with you and your views there…. But your still a fuckin idiot! And i figured your problem out…”HOORAH” you must be an idiot jarhead

        • WrestlingRules says:

          D1 military academy wrestling. I have wrestled forever and I have boxed longer than that. HooRah @James I am beginning to see that we are NOT that far apart, you are an American loving patriotic warrior and I am too. The only problem you have right now is getting mad when someone actually says something that he really believes that goes against what you believe. You simply can’t handle that. That’s what makes you weak. My honesty makes me strong and your anger makes you weak, Just like Silva and Sonnen. First, I;m not sure Silva actually thinks like this, I just believe he understand that his role in selling the most likely BIGGEST fight in UFC history and the money he can make is the real reason for this. But let’s say that he really lost it and has gotten mad. That anger will make him weaker. Where Sonnen’s motivation comes form something deeper than anger. That makes him stronger. You want to be a better warrior? Yes? Get your anger under control and things will change for you. Taje this for what it is. I’m not giving shit here, This is honesty…..

          But now I am going to give you shit – Dude really waxing your eyebrows that shit just isn’t right….

        • Gabi says:

          Sonnon’s motivation comes from a needed or pills. Which ever form of roids he uses. He isn’t man enough to do it alone. And a promise he can’t keep. And worst of all he’s cheating to try to complete it. Lol what a joke. I bet his dad would not want his son cheating to keep a promise. And everything Anderson said about Sonnon was true. Also Sonnon is a biggot and a racist fuck. I wonder what the UFC would do if someone from somewhere else talked shit about how they thought the US was nothing but a bunch of dumb hicks like you see on tv. Either dumb ugly uneducated rednecks or dumb drunk uneducated assholes and sluts. That’s the equalent of what Sonnon said about Brazil and what he thought because that’s what he’s seen and idk where he was looking at info from Brazil, the people living in the amazon have more technology then he thought was even there. But nothing from the UFC, yet people are getting in trouble for saying something on twitter. Which is a limited audience Lol. This guy is saying that at press conferences and everywhere online/tv. That’s a joke and the UFC should be ashamed not so money hungry. But imagine is Overeem would have said all the worst most ignorant things about the US? Think he would have a contract still even after the roids and legal problems? Guess who’s had legal problems, convicted, and uses roids doesn’t sound like a model person to have representing the US. Your makin it so much about country, well if it is then we are failing at the people we have representing us, this one is a convicted criminal, known lier and biggot/racist (those things were racist not funny), and roid abuser (not user like he claims, not that much is needed for to life to be normal). This a fight between 2 pros (one true pro one poser) and that is it dumbass. Don’t make this into more then it is. You sound like a chick, like everything had a double meaning. Grow some balls and get off of Sonnons nuts. Look at who your defending. Lol. A fuck up and totally disrespecting the respectable fighter. All bitch shit.

  21. Tommy says:

    I hated chael at first cause he talked to fuckin much.always thought he was a good fighter but hated him.but after he backed up all that shit talk when he smashed silva for 4 and half rds.he impressed me and he gained another fan.yeah he lost but who else brought it to silva like he did?nobody…imma fan of silva for sure too.this one is a toss up for me I don’t know who the hell is gonna take this fight.just hope it’s a classic like there first one.

  22. DanaWhiteTheBoss says:

    This WrestlingRules kid is by far the dumbest commenter I have seen on this site.

    • James says:

      Why do you think I always call him out on his billshit?!

      • WrestlingRules says:

        What bullshit, you NEVER call me out. You only whine how much I suck and you want to drive 250 miles to fight me. But you NEVER call me out on my bullshit. Give me an example of what you consider bullshit and how you called me out by making better points. YOU NEVER DO THAT. You only flame. You need to learn how to fight better. Take a lesson from Xanindo, that guy can fight on here. He’s biased as hell and will apologize for his favorite fighters, but at least he has points. Step up your game or I’ll just keep planting you head first…

    • WrestlingRules says:

      So you make a post to say that I am the dumbest poster on here and you DON’T say why? Dude, can you make an argument and tell me why I am the dumbest poster on here?? If you can make a good argument why I am the DUMBEST poster on here than I will never post again and I will leave. Are you up to the challenge or are you just being dumb?? Well what is it?

      • Gabi says:

        You are the dumbest poster on here due to the fact that you make things far more then they are (like a chick) bday the dumbest things. Contradict yourself in saying someone is on someone’s nuts when actually your on Sonnons nuts harder then any known dick rider. Also you post very dumb things in general. There’s some examples.

  23. maurice says:

    alright with this kicked his ass for 4 and a half rounds crap. chael had a solid 2 rounds of gnp. by the 3rd round he was gassin hard and throwing pillows at anderson. just look at the way anderson subbed chael. he punched him in the face so hard from the bottom that chael put his head in anderson silvas chest and covered up. anderson used that slight opening to lock in a tight triangle armbar combo. anderson rib was fuked. fact. chael had extremely high testosterone levels. fact. and chael didnt have to work for a single takedown, seeing how anderson pretty much invited him to take it to the ground every single round by giving chael his leg. other times he would pull guard during the takedown attempt, like diaz. since the chael fight anderson has been looking incredible. 1st round stoppage over vitor. and beating the shit outta yushin and avoiding all takedowns. cant wait to see sonnen kissing silvas ass after silva finishes him.

  24. Mike b says:

    I mean I like sonnen and all but him saying silva is amateur and has no skill.chael is a fuckin psycho!!!!!

  25. Mike b says:

    What are u a fuckin mma expert.

  26. Gabriel says:

    something is wrong with

  27. Fight fan sydney says:

    The comments by wrestling rules are the typical ones expected from a fan of Chael.
    U sir along with ur Sonnen are a moron. Ur both all talk and believe me u don’t do that too well either it seems so ur pretty much shit outta luck.
    What the fuck has patriotism got to do with this? It’s a fight between 2 athletes. Were hopng itl be a cracker of a fight, but they not really going to war..n even if they were it doesn’t include u or ur fellow countrymen.

    If Sonnen can shut the fuck up (and last) for even 5min he’s gona get the beating he’s been begging Silva for for so long. Silva is a champ and in a truly different league to the twat.

    Sweet dreams Sonnen

  28. I got two words for Chael”Epic Fail”.

  29. Kirk says:

    This is one of those fights that I don’t care who wins. I like the hype job that Chael does. But I love that he has finally pissed off silva. Maybe we will see the spider go balls to the wall and maybe make that one mistake Chaels looking for. Regardless what a sweet fucking fight it’s going to be.

  30. maurice says:

    when chael loses we wont have to listen to his bullshit or wrestling rules anymore. then again, a troll like wrestling rules will always have some stupid shit to say. and for the record the only person that got dropped in their first fight was chael. chael got dropped with a fucking elbow. silva got staggered with a punch..not dropped. and that punch in the 5th round was ruled a slip. it was obviously a slip. joe rogan and chael sonnen already both confirmed it was a slip. chael actually said he took advantage of the spider losing balance. how the fuck does chael even wake up everyday and have the nerve to say the shit he says. ppl also forget chael promised his dead father that he would beat anderson….bahahaha he lied to his dead fathers face…pitiful phael sonnen. his dad must be turning in his grave as we speak.

  31. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Wow! Amateur? Really? And he made you tap? Hmmm, so what does that say about you, Phael?

  32. T.DADDY says:

    Say what you want about Sonnen but he is the only guy that made Silva look like shit.. he beat his ass for 4 rds.. he will do the same this time but he won’t get subbed… WAR SONNEN THE SPIDER KILLER!

    • WrestlingRules says:

      What does it sound like when you step on a spider??….SQUISSSSSSH. What a beautiful sound…

    • Gabi says:

      And remember Anderson wanted to make him tap out. He called the way he was going to finish. Remember he got his belt afterward (bjj black). He let him take him down the whole fight. Even rocked him off his back. Now he says he’s going to really best his ass. He seems to do what he says he’s going to do, so yea idk how Sonnon will do

  33. Bjj BB says:

    @ WrestlingRules, bjpenn Only lost to champs, gsp, frankie, matt huges, machida, nick and jenz, we all know he beat gsp and frankie the 1st time and he got his revenge on matt and jenz, and alot of ppl thought he beat machida so that only leaves nick, id love to see a rematch between them. So dont ever compare a fuck up, juice monkey that brings shame to the sport to bjpenn and his record, wrestlingrules? What kind of a man feels so great after laying on someone and beating them only like that, and then feels like thats the greatest fighting style? People who cant fight!!

    • WrestlingRules says:

      I get it, you don’t like Sonnen and you don’t like wrestlers. But Sonnen beat the crap outta Fihlo 2x and Silva soon to be 2x. So what if he lost. YOU HAVE MADE MY POINT PERFECTLY. BJ lost to GSP the first time and Edgar the first time that you thought he won. Well Sonnen beat the shit outta Fihlo until he got armbarred and the second time he made Fihlo look like a kid and he beat the shit outta Silva until he got choked. So what is your point? Sonnen and BJ are EXACTLY alike they are one of the best and they have been beat…You don;t see this because you’re blinded by hatred.

  34. Bjj BB says:

    Sonnen has never been champ and will never rule a devision like bj did, and sonnen will never be in the hall of fame nor will he beat silva now that he cant cheat cuz of the testing, so please tell me how is sonnen and bj the same? Dont get me wr

  35. Bjj BB says:

    Dont get me wrong, sonnen is a great wrestler but not a great fighter like bjpenn, so theres no hating going on im just giving you facts!

  36. Xaninho says:

    This new text editor is useless! Change it back ffs!
    Can't post any replies, it just gives a Null.
    BJ was a champ in two weight divisions, when was Sonnen a champ?
    And no I don't think America is like Nazi germany, I think you are.
    Wrong is wrong and right is right, I judge people by their actions and not by where they're born. Apparently you don't care if an American does something wrong, he's American so you'll back him up no matter what. Americans can kill innocent foreign children and you'll back them up because they're American….
    Your failure to understand that this is morally wrong says a lot about you.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      So now you are calling me a Nazi = YOU LOST BITCH….Who the fuck is talking about killing children or anybody???? That’s coming out of YOUR MIND. You are a fucked up liberal socialist. You read some one is patriotic and you THINK IN YOUR MIND that it means they support children killing??? I’m being serious now, you have got some real serious mental issues. Maybe its because you have been raised in a screwed up nation like Holland??? I hope you get help amigo…I have always said that I am PATRIOTIC and I BELIEVE that America is the MOST SUPERIOR NATION and the LIGHT of the WORLD…and you think that mean children killing?? WTF..I have really intimidated you haven’t I? Done

      • Xaninho says:

        I’m not done with you yet.

        I translated your own statement to a more serious exaggerated situation hoping you would see you shouldn’t simply say: “So YES I am a patriot and WILL ONLY ROOT for American fighters over any foreign fighters.”, but I think I overestimated your intelligence again…..

        Even if the American fighter is a piece of filth you would continue to support him just because he’s American, that is what you’re saying right? That’s just sad..

  37. Xaninho says:

    What I forgot to say about your little comparison between Sonnen and BJ's record is that BJ fought his fights in the UFC and a few K-1 fights against top guys, where Sonnen fought most of his career in bullshit organizations.
