  1. oldsoul says:

    the dude conducting the interview sucks.. love couture though

  2. Fail Sonnen says:

    I’ve seen randy asked about this fight a few times now and he seems a bit biased every time. I wonder if that comes from a friendship with chael or post traumatic syndrome of lyoto’s kick.

  3. Xaninho says:

    Only adjustments will be Sonnen with ‘normal’ testosterone levels. And Silva beating him up on the feet and avoiding takedowns, instead of offering Sonnen his leg and going for the submission from his back.

    • danielrchargers says:

      that fuck sonnen still does trt.
      hes gonna come in above a normal level… but not above the NSAC’s requirements. fucking Baloney.

    • Powerdbl87 says:

      You are a fucking moron I love watching Andy fight but no way in hell he gave his leg for 5 rounds just to get a sub

      • Xaninho says:

        You love watching him fight, but unfortunately you have no clue WHAT you’re watching. Andy was happy to accomodate Sonnen’s takedowns because he promised Nogueira to submit Sonnen’s ass. If you, with the little amount of braincells you apparently have, had any notion about fighting you would know slapping on a triangle choke is easiest from your back.

        Now shut your trap and let the grown-ups talk about MMA dumbass!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          So I see you’re still trying to ‘sell’ this snake-oil. So let me see if I have this right. Silva, because he wanted to protect the honor of his girlfriends, the Nog Bros, decided to let Sonnen take him down over and over and over and over. And to facilitate this endeavor he was giving his leg to Sonnen all 5 rounds. So far so good right?? Ok and he was letting Sonnen take him down and he let Sonnen rock him mulitple times and let him bounce his head off the canvas over and over again so that he could submit him for his girlfriends, the Nogs. And he DECIDED to wait until the last round to FINALLY submit Sonnen and protect the honer of his girlfriends, the Nogs. Right?

          You know, now that I have laid it out. This make PERFECT sense!!

          I guess the only question I have is; if Silva is so much more dominant than Sonnen and was baiting him the whole fight, why did it take 22.5 minutes before he actually submitted him??? Did he just like all the abuse he was getting from Sonnen maybe?? Is his juijitsu under the Nogs just not good enough to have done it in the first round?? I’m just wondering if you could answer me; why didn’t Silva submit him in the first round? Now that would have really shown us how good his Nog juijitsu is!! No???

          Bro, you REALLY need to raise your game. This is just intellectually dishonest. I expect more form you? This post was not one of your best. You need to quit sampling the products you sell.

        • jbeamazing says:

          people need to rewatch the fight Anderson went for the first take down because Chael was landing more on the feet

        • GRT 3000 says:

          And if the Nogs were sitting right next to you (or the girlfriends as you put it) you’d be like…what? a ***** – then you’d get on the net and mouth off cuz that’s really your M.O. right? …right.

        • Xaninho says:

          So you forgot after Silva toyed with Maia DW told him his next fight better be exciting?

          He made the fight exciting by making Sonnen look better than he actually is.

        • jbeamazing says:

          anderson was the first to go for a take down in that fight because chael was out striking him re watch it

        • Xaninho says:

          No he went for a takedown because he had his mind set on a submission.

    • Majestyk says:

      Regardless of TRT levels, Silva can’t avoid the takedowns. He’ll have no answer to Chael’s onslaught, and consequently repeatedly (and helplessly) slammed to the mat. Just like last time. He’s had his entire life to develop his takedown defense. Two additional years won’t make any difference against the best in the business. Also, don’t pin any hopes on the fact that Chael had a hard time with Bisping. Bisping is way underrated, and on a much higher level than Anderson when it comes to takedown defense.

      • Xaninho says:

        Sonnen had his entire life to learn how to defend submissions, if he finally learned how to do that in the last two years I’m sure Silva can perfect his takedown defense.

        And don’t pretend Silva’s takedown defense is weak because it isn’t, he willingly let Sonnen take him down.

        • Nuitari X says:

          I saw the documentary “Like Water” and he did actually say he was gonna do that to noguira weeks before the fight. Anderson is amazing (pun intended) and people who think it mattered about chael’s pitter-patter pillow punches in the first fight are gonna find out this time around. I totally agree with you man, chael’s fans are as delusional as he is. I’ve ordered my shit already, one more week left on the map for Mr. Sonnen.

  4. Zack says:

    Just like in any sport the ball never lies. In mma the fist never lies. Chael WILL be knocked the fuck out. He will taste karma first hand for all the cheating he’s done.

  5. Kong says:

    I bet Randy and Chael share a little secret.

  6. GRT 3000 says:

    Chael will lose the fight.

  7. Yo Papi says:

    Hopefully Silva loses like he should of the first time. I want him to lose already so he won’t be scared to lose his streak against Jones

  8. Anti-Hater says:

    I thought it was a great interview. Questioner and Couture said a lot of things that were true and insightful that many others simply aren’t discussing right now. What is the reality of the situation.

    • GRT 3000 says:

      …except of course that Chael was 17:1 in that fight and cheating his ass off. I’m over it man…not even taking a shot at Chael (its been flogged enough) it just seems that there is no mention of this enormous advantage by anyone other than bloggers. The UFC must have a “no talk abt Chael’s insane TRT levels clause” somewhere – I swear. i mean the guy had a kentucky derby race horse up his ass for that fight…why no mention by Randy? or anyone?!

      wtf?!@

  11. jbeamazing says:

    Chael is the only man in the ufc to ever give silva a fight people blame a legal substance for his success because they hate him but it’s not like he went in there and looked like reem he was smaller then anderson why not give the guy some credit

    • GRT 3000 says:

      I don’t hate him man – kinda think he’s a douche…but 17:1?! you gotta think abt that level of TRT for a sec. and then consider what kind of a beast that would make you. 17:1 is fuckin’ insane levels dude…and yes to his credit (cheating his ass off) he did dominate the fight. but then he lost! so where does he deserve credit exactly? even TRT was embarrassed by that.

      • Dante Niro says:

        HAHHAAHA “even trt was embarrassed by that”!!! pure gold
        u da man grt3000 lol

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Have you ever taken steroids dude? If yes, then YOU KNOW it doesn’t make you into an x-man. If you haven’t then you have ZERO idea what it does. Either way you are full of shit.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          why don’t u school us on taking roids then clown. you seem to be a first hand expert…and agro too. what’s next WWERules? Nipple surgery?

    • Xaninho says:

      He wasn’t as big as Overeem no. But take a good look at Sonnen’s frame when he fought Anderson juiced up, and then take a good look at his frame when he fought Bisping with legal levels.

      If you can’t see the obvious difference in frame you’re in denial.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Frames don’t change, only muscle and fat mass…..Another factual error.

        Oh yah, I did forget the other snake-oil reason for the Sonnen-Silva 1. The DW reason……

        Raise the game, raise the game.

        • Xaninho says:

          You can try to bury the fact his BODY looked totally different onand off the juice, but me using the wrong word for it doesn’t change he was way more muscular and bigger when he fought Silva on the juice than he was off the juice against Bisping!

          You know what I mean by it don’t you? Have you compared the two Sonnens?

          I think I’ll keep this game level, you haven’t reached it yet so no need to step it up …..

        • WrestlingRules says:

          So you consider, the snake-oil of DW and Silva allowing Sonnen to take him down as the high level of your game??? I’ve already exposed those 2 cons and Sonnen looked no different from Silva and /or Bisping. The only thing that changed was YOUR perceptions clouded by your bias and hatred. Its called the lizard zombie silva brain.
          Step up your starting to lag behind old man.

        • Xaninho says:

          “…………..”, that’s what I read. Because every single letter you typed right there is bullshit.

          I don’t believe you did not notice the difference. Every fool could see when he fought Bisping his body didn’t look anything like he did when he fought Silva…Every fool, including you and the rest of Sonnen fanboys with blurred, biased hater vision.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Sorry Bro…I have pure spring water running through these veins. I don’t drink. drug, soda, meat, etc. I only eat and drink pureness. So yah I see things clearly unlike you. Get off the grease your perceptions will clear.

        • Xaninho says:

          The way your blurred perception works doesn’t have anything to do with what you eat , use or don’t use. Sonnen’s body just looked different when he was on the juice. No room for debate or opinions, it is what it is.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Nope, you’re eyes are playing tricks on you again. There was ABSOLUTELY no difference in those 2 fights. It is your lizard zombie silva brain WANTING to see some differences…. Your hallucinating. Get off that shit you sell, it’ll killya bro.

  12. Xaninho says:

    Sonnen against Silva:

    Sonnen against Bisping:

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Yah exactly the same??!! One shot is a closeup and the second is farther away. Is this what you are using to make your point. rofl…Oh I see where you have gone wrong…..you are being eyes are being fooled by a phenomenon called…perspective…..you have none.

      • Xaninho says:

        Look at his latissimus dorsi for example, you really can’t tell the difference? See? I just don’t believe you don’t see it, you’re just sticking to your story even with proof on pics.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You can’t tell anything about this, your grasping at straws, one pic is up close and the other is farther, Of course the up close one is bigger and the other smaller due to the optical physics of perspective. I cannot believe this is what you are using to make your point!!! Let’s look at the arms, they look just the same and they are easier to see…Come on now…Your like guy who looks at Rorschach inks and see Sonnen juicing, when everybody else sees ink on paper, You WANT to believe it so you SEE it.

        • Xaninho says:

          Haha don’t get me started about wanting to believe shit. Sonnen and his fanboys keep insisting he won the first fight. So you shouldn’t try to run your mouth about wanting to believe shit that didn’t happen.

    • Irie nation says:

      Terrible way to prove your point…you can’t tell shit from these and if you can see something yourself, then I want what you’re smoking

  13. Majestyk says:

    Your Rorschach analogy was brilliant. Clearly no discernable difference in his physique.

  14. Bj penn says:

    Lol wrestlingrules it’s gonna be funny when chael doesn’t even get a takedown …
    Did u not realize sonnen is soo jacked up now ..
    That he looks like shit at 185 …cuz of the cut

    All u little wrestling faggots are the same !!
    I’m from Kane county Illinois bitch
    And I been watching wrestlers my whole life
    Your all mentally week ..
    And can be broken easily …
    Like watching ben askren talk about
    The Big brother effect aha
    I know U know what that is wrestlingrules
    And it’s just something u pussies made up
    In that sweaty wrestling room to your
    Faggot teammates about why u can’t beat someone..
    Fact of the matter wrestling doesn’t rule .. At all
    In fact it’s very minuscule in “mma”
    A takedowns a takedown whether u have a wrestling background or jiu jitsu
    And trust me any “wrestler”
    Will SURELY get submitted in a fight ..
    And if u r a “wrestler” and u learn one bit
    Of submission defense ..
    Well guess What…you a grappler now !
    “wrestlers” are afraid to get punched.. Punch like little girls no matter how “big” they are …
    And get choked out QUICK in fights
    Trust me !

    • GRT 3000 says:

      …I agree with you, but I think in this case he’s talking about WWE-Rules; you know closet homo’s on roids play-fighting in their underwear. I guess some people think that rules…?!
