Ed Soares: “It will be very bad for Brazil if something happens…” to the idiot Chael Sonnen

By: Jason Kindschy:
The concerns for Chael Sonnen’s safety going into the rematch with champion Anderson Silva in Brazil on June 23rd seem to be very legitimate.

Anderson Silva’s long time manager, Ed Soares, recently made this statement to

“Hopefully people will understand that they shouldn’t do anything against Chael, just boo him. Let Anderson settle this with him in the Octagon. It will be very bad for Brazil if something happens to him. The guy is an idiot, but he is promoting the fight and it will be the greatest MMA fight of all time.”

The fight will likely be the biggest rematch in MMA history, set to take place at Estádio Olímpico João Havelange in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The stadium is set to host the 2016 Summer Olympics, and is expected to hold 60,000 spectators during the summer games four years from now. Dana White has publically stated he expects the stadium to pack upwards of 80,000 fans for UFC 147.

With Chael Sonnen’s brash statements such as, “Hey Anderson, stick to what your country does best, like soccer or harboring infectious diseases,” the concern regarding his safety is well warranted. With death threats sent directly to Mr. Sonnen, and groups on the internet calling for nothing short of his head, we have to wonder what measures the UFC is going to have to take in order to ensure Chael’s safety.

Dana White has hinted at ‘presidential style’ security, and many fighters have made jokes about a helicopter evacuation should the ‘Oregon Gangster’ win the bout. We all know there is usually a great level of respect towards the opponent regardless of the outcome, or the hype going into that fight. The question is will Ed Soares’ request of the Brazilian fans to let Chael Sonnen make safe passage to and from the octagon be heard by Rio de Janeiro, especially should he win.

I guess we will have to wait until June 23rd to find out.

  4. bill says:

    my dad said no!

  5. danieljonesfan says:

    Chael’s a businessman, he’ll be all ‘I love Anderson’ bla bla when he loses and walk off with a few mill in his back bin, anyways was it just me or was the ‘fighting Chael Sonnen is dangerous for your health’ one liner coupled with that stomach churning look he gave quite nauseating. Fuck it, he’s a tool but I’m not sure who’s the biggest one, him or that jockey Anderson I’m so disrespected Silva.

  6. nobody wants to even touch that idiot (Sonnen)

  7. Kalab says:

    WAR SONNEN!!! Beat the living shit outta Silva!

  8. kikz says:

    i like silva he is the beast! And sonnen also is a great fighter its just that he talks too much… Well…we’ll see what happens…

  9. JROG says:

    I think when Cail wins Anderson should committ suicide right in the ring I mean realy where is all this hype going damn both look like couple punk ass bitches act like pros fight like men and shut the hell up

  10. kevin says:

    if sonnen wins somehow it will be a riot. anything can happen on the right day.

  11. trev says:

    Dude please dont call him the “Oregon gangster”, he called himself an “American gangster.” I dont want that kind of bad ju-ju and ignorance attached to my home state lol.

  12. theprodigy says:

    If chael sonnen wins Id like to see him walk out of the cage and go to the crowd just like jose aldo did in brazil

  13. wayne wheatley says:

    fuck sonnen. warr silvaa

  14. James Troy says:

    sonnen will smash anderson and then smash every brazilian in the crowd.

    all hail sonnen the greatest fighter and the greatest human to ever live.

  15. bdizz says:

    shiiiieett – Chaels got some big balls walking into that stadium that hosts potentially 60 thousand pissed off Brazilians!

    Here’s what Chael has waiting for him and this is just a soccer game….

    Balls BIG fucking balls

  16. The_Gooch1 says:

    Sonnen is about to get an ass beating from Silva. These Brazilians dont have to do anything except cheer everytime Chael get hits by a knee and whatever else Anderson throws.

  17. Edger says:

    Hah if they touch sonnen the US has to get in it!! USA !!but damn Sonnen shouldn’t of disrespected a country. That’s messed up

  18. Sounds like security similar to George Zimmerman right now. Foolish guys because of drugs and guns.

  19. Anderson Silva's rib says:

    This will show him!

    • Esteban Morales' rib also said says:

      looolll No joke, I got a busted rib right now from BJJ. It hurt because I laughed so hard reading that, bro. It could be possible his rib was acting up. It hurts to do anything with this type of injury.

  20. Diogo says:

    Mark my words, silva will kill sonnen. He will chop him pretty bad and then will ko him in amazing fashion.
    The only thing Sonnen can do is pray. His goal was to fight for the tittle, not win it.

  21. Nick says:

    I really think if they do something to Sonnen the UFC won’t even go back to Brazil. In reality the Brazilian fans may be some of the worst fans out there. The Japanese fans are by far the most respectful and best fans by miles. I’m just saying, if Chael wins that fight there will be a riot. Probably will look like Vancouver when the Canucks lost the cup. Like yeah it was wrong of him to say things like that, but 90% of what he says is bullshit. Presidential security would be the best form of defense against anything towards him.

  22. Win? Chael will be lucky to make it back to the states in a 4in x 4in box! Octigon gangsta ain’t that a bitch….

  23. A.James says:

    Brazilians don’t care about Ed Soares. Let silva do the talking.

  24. Bjj BB says:

    Kyle- FUCK YOU!!

  25. dick buttkiss says:

    chael a good fighter? no….hes a good wrestler. silva is a great fighter, gsp is a great fighter, couture is a great figther. pretty sure this is MMA not a wrestling match. the only thing chael has a change of finishing is the last few hits of TRT from a syringe. all his antics are basically just his preparations for a loss which will be leading him into is career in the WWE with lesnar.

  26. RickRuckus says:

    Wow, what the hell are you all smoking? Calling Chael Sonnen the greatest fighter ever lived……. SMH

  27. Dick Diaz says:

    it will look bad for brazil as a nation if something bad happened to chael…
