Dont Expect Sonnen To Beg For Your Approval | MMA News

By Evan Stoumbelis
Chael Sonnen spoke with Dan Brood of The Times recently to tell him that when he gets into the octagon on July 7th he won’t be competing for the sake of North Americans.

“We’re fans and we can cheer for whoever we want to cheer for. You want to back your guy. North American crowds can be the most unloyal crowds there are, but I don’t beg for crowd approval.”  

One person Sonnen will be fighting for however, is his father; Chael promised his dad on his deathbed that he would win a championship, Sonnen has yet to fulfill his promise.  

Sonnen, who is known for his outspoken, over the top, trash talking persona will be having his rematch against Anderson Silva on July 7th at UFC 148.  The fight is being hyped as the biggest fight in UFC history, and given all the trash talking that has been done, and the outcome of the last fight, fans are almost guaranteed nothing short of spectacular from both fighters.

    Let the roids be with you young cheatawan

    • Quitcrying says:

      Waaa waaa stop sucking on silvas nuts and stop whining.

    • Reality says:

      After he loses(hopefully) he can always fight for the Strikeforce title to fulfuill his promise. Sonnen vs. Rockhold 😉

      • WrestlingRules says:

        I think Sonnen takes this easily, but he will have to prove he can deal with submission attempts better or if not, he deserves to lose. Silva doesn’t have much of a chance to win other than another sub or perhaps a lucky punch or kick, but barring those two, Silva has very little chance of winning….and Silva knows that…

        But I do agree, if Sonnen can’t win, then he DOES need to go to StikeForce and fight Rock……Then Hopefully, we will see him in the announcers booth…..

        • Xaninho says:

          Hahah so if Silva knocks him out you’re going to say it was a lucky punch? that’s weak man!

          The least thing you can do after Silva proved the Sonnen fans wrong is acknowledge his accomplishments.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          If Silva knocks him out like he did with a lucky kick to Vitor’s face than, yes I’ll call it what it is, a fuckin lucky hit. But if he picks him apart and tags him over and over and obviously beats him up, THEN YES, I will admit that he is the BEST. Also, if he gets pounded on again and gets lucky again and subs Sonnen then I will call it just like last time and will also say Sonnen needs to move to Stikeforce either way in a loss.

          BUT, when Sonnen wins then you need to do the same and call him the GOAT…Yes??

        • Xaninho says:

          I think Silva can knock him out with one punch or kick…

          GOAT?…..Not right away. A GOAT needs to defend his belt for a while. And his mediocre record is unworthy of a GOAT right now anyway.

          But I won’t take anything way from Sonnen’s win if he manages to cause an upset. I am not a sore loser. I admitted defeats of my fav fighters before. A win is a win and a loss is a loss. Unless Sonnen gets caught afterwards with elevated testosterone levels again ofcourse.

        • baldy says:

          @wrestlingrules…yeah cause the champ needs you to validate him….he’s already ran through the middleweight division leben (finished him), franklin twice (finished him both times), hendo (finished him), forrest griffen… a huge 205er (finished him and sent him running and crying to the locker room…litterally), damien maia, vitor belfort (finished him). yushin okami (finished him, and your boy phael (finished him)…the champ’s resume speaks for it self…stop drinkin the phael koolaid…just because he says silva’s only beatin a bunch of nobodies dont exactly make it so.
          sonnen’s no slouch, but he’s no mma champion ( and will not be…at least not a ufc champ) his 3 best weapons (in this order) are his mouth, his chin (he can take a punch), and his wrestling…
          bottum line…the smart moneys on the champ retaining his title by ko or tko in the third…this time next year phael’s in the wwe…just sayin

    • gldnglves says:

      anybody who watched the fight can’t deny soonen whoop Anderson for almost the entire fight, ok but know let’s see the fact,Anderson had broken ribs before the fight,chael soonen tested positive for elevated testosterone levels,and that is 100% true, Chael has all the tools to do it again,the question is, can he do it again?and this time finish? and for those who have been saying that was luck, Anderson has destroyed all his opponents and finishes,when chael goes for a take down he is awesome and there’s no question he’s better wrestler and he can easily control the fight, but this time anderson silva it’s going to be ready for,if Anderson Silva going to fight 100 percent chael has no chance,I can’t wait for this, I don’t care who wins as long as good fight

  2. Xaninho says:

    Hahaha! He shouldn’t make promises he can’t keep! He even cheated his father on his deathbed!

    • Quitcrying says:

      Haha we got a true piece of shit taking shots at a guys dead father…

      • Rodriguez says:

        I bet before this you were a big shit talker about Sonnen, and plus he didn’t say anything bad about Sonnen’s father dipshit!

      • Xaninho says:

        I took a shot at Sonnen, not his father. You really should go back and try to finish elementary school so you can read properly.

      • Jaedr says:

        sounds like something chael would do, he must be a true piece of shit too, and oh yeah he’s a cheater so he IS a true POS.

      • danielrchargers says:

        QUITECRYING are you sonnens personal Testicle crab??? protecting his nutt sack from other crotch hangers?
        like Kenny said from Inside MMA. “Some people out there WOULD sell half of there soul for a World Title” and we ALL KNOW who the hell he was talking about.
        Sonnen is a cheat, a fake, and a lier, and he is playing EVERY single one of you Sonnen fan boys.
        how are you a fan of him? he makes fun of you!!!!! he calls all of you nerdy keyboard kids and you applaud him?? that sucks.

  3. You Cant Be Serious says:

    Someone please shut this dude up. No one cares what he has to say anymore.

  4. stemm says:

    Sonnen for president 2012 all the silva nut huggers can go to Brazil and start sucking those nuts we all know sonnen smashed silva in the first fight do you think silva only having 2 fights since then can stop sonnen from taking him down I dont think so and also in the first fight sonnen was winning the stand up as well infact he dropped silva face it silva got lucky last time and this time the only way he keeps that belt is if he withdrawls from the fight witch is a real possability silva tried everything to avoid this fight so I wouldn’t be suprised if he bails out like a bitch.

  5. jbeamazing says:

    I think the Chael haters have man crushes on him because they comment on ever post he has

    • majestyk says:

      Anderson Silva is INCAPABLE of stopping Sonnen’s takedowns. Silva’s fans NEVER address that point, because it substantiates my belief that Anderson will lose, and negates their hopeless belief to the contrary. What Chael did last time (total domination over a damage-resistant, but helpless tackle dummy/punching bag) will happen again. What Silva did last time (got lucky) will not. Silva’s fans can hope and pray all they want, but lightening doesn’t strike the same spot twice. Come July, whether they like it or not, they will be subjects of a new Middleweight King.

      • Xaninho says:

        Keep dreaming buddy.

        Only way Sonnen can get that belt is fight for the vacant belt when Silva retires as a p4p champ.

        • Majestyk says:

          Like I said, you never address the reality of Silva’s achilles heel, where Sonnen is concerned.. Just pretend it doesn’t exist and bring up a point that in no way counters what I’ve said. Oh well, I guess “Ignorance is bliss” as the saying goes.

        • Xaninho says:

          No I just don’t go through the trouble of slapping you with facts, cause you Sonnen nuthuggers deny simple facts anyway.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Xanin you ho, put up some facts, big guy. You spout off out of your ass but never say anything. If Sonnen wins, go join GSP’s website, deal? And if Silva wins, I will suck your nutsack, since you seem to be fixated on someone doing just that. Deal?

        • Xaninho says:

          Facts are Sonnen got submitted 11 times. He has no submission defense whatsoever.

          What’s worse?

          Having no takedown defense and then submit the opponent from your back, or having no submission defense, take guys down and get triangles slapped around your neck like a fucking novice?

          And thnx for the nutsack offer, but I have enough goodlooking girls more than willing to do so.

      • 9lives304 says:

        Actually lightning does strike the same spot twice, Empire state building gets hit approx. 46 times a year, but anyway I digress….ur right Silva can’t stop Sonnen from taking him down, but Silva always finds a way to win!!! Whether Sonnen is a cheater or not, I really don’t care. If the Athletic Commission allows it than it is what it is…..BUT Silva hasn’t remained champ for 5 YEARS cuz he’s a slouch either. And YES Chael did get a good lick on Silva and drop him to the mat, but Sonnen didn’t pummel him nor finish him when he had him on the ground for 4 1/2 Rds….I didn’t even see Sonnen hurt him except for the punch that buckled Silva. It appeared to me that Silva knew Sonnen was the superior grappler of the two, and just waited on Sonnen to make a mistake…and boy did he ever!!! Sonnen will out-wrestle & out-grapple Silva in this fight too, but somehow, someway Silva will wait on Sonnen to make a mistake & find a way to capitalize on it…and REMAIN Middle Weight Champion!!! No nut-huggin here, just facts bitches!!!!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          This is one of the MOST clear and lucid description I have read yet. bar-none!!!. If Sonnen can;t prevent Silva from a lucky sub then he doesn;t deserve to win and he needs to go fight Rock in Strikeforce.

      • Not You says:

        Chael must be a lightening rod when you look at all the triangle and subs he’s been caught in.

        • baldy says:

          all the subs phael’s been caught in were lucky….all of them. his extremely impressive 27-11 record should tell you that…lol.
          he earned this rematch with his mouth, not his fighting….ask bisping…lol

        • baldy says:

          as a matter of fact all 11 of the guys that beat him were the 11 luckiest guys to ever live….lol…sonnens that great…lol

  6. tuff gong says:

    Andersons going down hard this fight. Chael all the way. To aggressive for Silvia

  7. B-rad says:

    This isnt mma news. This is Chael just loosening up his jaw some so anderson can crush it

  8. Justen says:

    The only way Anderson loses is if someone pays him enough to throw the fight.

  9. ItIsWhatItIs says:

    What nobody seems to remember is that Silva told Sonnen he would make him tap after he told Silva that his BJJ black belt was meaningless, he didn’t even attempt to use the best part of his game which is his standup…that being said, Sonnen still took it to him and I think its gonna be a great fight!

  10. ZC says:

    People can’t stand to see shit talkers, especially when they can back it up.

    Sonnen is coming into this fight as a different animal. I expect Silva to try to dodge it again, then an interim belt for Sonnen.

    Sonnen has Silvas number, that’s just what it is. You can’t lay on your back and get demolished for 4 and 1/2 rounds and still call yourself the greatest of all time for slipping in a submission. You just can’t.

    Right now, JBJ is the best fighter in the world. We have yet to see any weaknesses from him, unlike Silva who got out struck standing by Sonnen, and then destroyed on the ground.

    I’m not saying he got lucky, but I’m not saying he didn’t get lucky either.

    • Jaedr says:

      john booze jones is not the best, JDS would fuck his asshole into a messy pink sock.

    • Bd says:

      Try getting punched w broken ribs and let me know how good your balance is dumb fuck .. One will never acknowledge the use of their ribs or abdominals until they are damaged!!!!!! Whether it’s surgery or an injury ……..

  11. ZC says:

    Didn’t even attempt to use his stand up? Did we watch the same fight? Because I remember Sonnen ringing Silvas bell on the feet and knocking him down.. Who else has done that? Every fight starts standing and I promise you Silva was looking for the win the entire time, not just some submission to prove a point.

    • Xaninho says:

      Actually he was. Nogueira told him to just knock Sonnen out, but Silva refused and promised him he would submit him for the shit talking Sonnen did about Nogueira BJJ.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        This is all typical Silva and Silva nut-hugger bullshit. This CRAP NEVER came out BEFORE the fight. This was bullshit that weasel Silva came up with AFTER the fight….Just like his witty bitty sore rib…come on now where’s the intellectual honesty?

        • Jaedr says:

          it was recorded in a documentary you fucking useless idiot, so yeah it did happen before.

        • Xaninho says:

          Instead of reading Sonnen’s bullshit book, you should watch Silva’s documentary ‘Like water’. You can see him talking to Nogueira and promising him he’s going to submit him.

          And would you tell everyone BEFORE the fight you’re going to get in the cage with an injury?

          You can be annoying and you have a weird opinion about dominance during a fight, but somehow I don’t think you would be that stupid. And neither was Silva…No fighter will open up about injuries before the fight.

        • Truth says:

          Except Silva already mentioned he was injured before this rematch and then retracted his statement just as quickly so your argument loses a bit of wind there.

          Ultimately it is what it is and we should all quit complaining and just wait for the rematch to happen.

  12. James says:

    If chael fights like he did against Bisping this will be an EASY win for Anderson. Chael got handled by a damn British kickboxer with the absence of TRT. Sorry Chael nuthuggers but TRT, sub-par boxing, superior wrestling and a little cardio doesn’t make a champion. Well not one that holds a belt longer than 2 fights anyway. It’s going to be a good fight either way, just can’t wait for Chael to be gone from the world of mma.

    • 9lives304 says:

      He won’t be gone from MMA, just the UFC!! He’ll go to Strikeforce. Sonnen said “if I lose to Anderson again, I’ll leave the UFC for good!”…….I say good riddance to bad rubbish

  13. Majestyk says:

    Your argument holds no water, given the fact that, Bisping’s take down defense is way superior to Silva’s. The trouble that Sonnen had taking him down isn’t a reflection of Chael’s diminished skills, but Bisping’s takedown defense, which nobody gives him enough credit for. If they were to fight, I believe that Bisping would get destroyed by Siva in the stand up, but styles make fights, and Chael has Anderson’s number.

  14. USA says:

    Why does everybody seem to be obsessed with these guys nuts and hugging them? Im just an MMA fan and a fan of all American Fighters cause I support my fellow Americans. I have no interest in hugging anybody’s nuts.

  15. stephen riddle says:

    This is not going to be the same fight as last time period silva by first round ko period

  16. Come at me bro says:

    Damn people are crazy on this site anderson is weak and is gonna get smashed on again and lose again all the way this time I don’t care if Chael stays the champ long or not or that he failed for roids in the last fight is it so bad just to want a guy to lose sometimes its Anderson’s time all greats fall from the top sooner or later some new blood will come up and the sports keeps growing I like both fighters and love the whole sport of mma I just wanna watch Anderson lose this one again.

    • Xaninho says:

      Again? I don’t think you fully grasp the meaning of a tap out. Sonnen tapped so he lost and Silva won.

      • danielrchargers says:

        yeah son, if sonnen did not want to tap… then we would have seen an uncounsous sonnen instead of a cry baby. he did VERY well not to cry at the end of that fight. HES THE MAN WITH THE BIGGEST ARM AND THE MOST CHARM. AND HES ALSO THE MAN WITH THE SMALLEST BALLS….

  17. laughing says:

    you guys are some of the best shit talkers i have ever seen, lmao chael needs to take some lessons. hope chael pulls off the win either way hoping for a good fight.

  18. stemm says:

    Im so jacked for this fight its such a sick card how is it this card is so sick and ufc 147 is the worst card in ufc history its the first card I will not pay for its bullshit to charge people for that card
