  3. Chaelisdead says:

    Haha he looks scared. He knows he is screwed probably his only chance to not end up in a wheelchair is to miss weight. I really hope he makes weight

  4. kong says:

    wow, one phone call changed him, what a weak minded pussy

    • Brian says:

      A phone call from a Gracie changed his perspective.. are you that surprised? The Gracie’s are infamous for being some of the most down to earth and level-headed people in combat sports.

  5. KPS says:

    That was probably the most “real” Sonnen interview I’ve seen. I love the respect for Renzo and the Gracies in general. He even apologized for stepping on someone nearby during the interview. I think the Chael Sonnen character is entertaining, but I much prefer the real one.

  6. Brend0magic says:

    I want Chael to win, although I won’t be butthurt if he loses. And is it just me or does he look kinda small in this vid?

  7. M says:

    How’s all the dildos in the bkgr trying to get in the video?!?

  8. Itzjenesus says:

    If Chael conducted himself like this in everything he did, I’d have so much more respect for the guy.

  9. CMolina says:

    If Chael coducted himself like this in everything he did, I’d have so much more respect for the guy.

  10. Tapitout21 says:

    This the part of Sonnen that’s annoying. Sometimes he’s in character other times out in the same interview…they weren’t the 1st 2 and won’t be last to get into each others faces at a press conf

  11. WrestlingRules says:

    Sonnen is a gracious person and gives the Gracies respect. Silva is so over matched in this one. Silva is done….RIP…Silva….

    What the fuck is chael bi polar.this is how I remember chael in his past fights.a humble,respectful,well spoken guy.i like this version of chael much better.almost makes me wanna root for the guy.honestly if he was fighting anybody else I would want him to win,always did in his other fights.if I watch this interview again i just might want him to win…I gotta stay away from this fucking video man.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Did you ever compete in team sports or even individual sports??? The stuff Sonnen says is just mind games. Why does it bother you?? I wonder why this bothers so many posters on here? I don’t think people have been very competitive that post here. It’s funny how sensitive so many kids are on this site.

      • GRT 3000 says:

        quit acting like your the foremost authority on all things fighting. We all know your a fatty that blogs too much.

        p.s. getting your gitch ripped up your ass 3 times a week as a kid does not make you a fighter…& daydreaming that you got all those bullies back for chafing your ass does not make it real. lol

        • WrestlingRules says:

          And you are so sensitive I am beginning to think you might be a girl…you always have anger issues….that mean’s you are WEAK…..rofl….HooRah

        • GRT 3000 says:

          fatty just rolled over f***in giggling then yelled Horray! …whatever.

          I’m just sayin’ you blog like a fat kid with no life.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          hahahahahaha…yah you’re a genius kid…just right on with that analysis….lmao…..Yup , you are girl….all hormonal and such…..your just plain stoooooopid kid…rofl…and it’s HoooooRaaaaaaah………….

        • GRT 3000 says:

          whatever dude…your a fatty that mouths off on the internet for a living. & your acronyms imply that you find yourself hilarious cuz you’re always giggling and high fiving yourself. and you love to say Hoooorraaaayyyy………

          ne-who’s I gotta life so I’m out, you keep up your fatso-blogger work in here.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Kid I am your worst nightmare….an educated badass. I see your pretty successful in all you do……lmao…..yep you are weak…You are a liberal right???

        • GRT 3000 says:

          nah I’m a conservative and a former bodybuilder and I reside in California. I’m the star of your three favorite shows: Conan the Barbarian, Kinder-garden Cop, and Junior.

        • Brian says:

          He isn’t just talking about fighting. In every sport, athletes often try to “psych-out” their opponent. For some reason, in the sport of fighting, the fans get easily offended by what is said and get their panties in a bunch like you. The OP was just remarking how it’s funny how fight fans are so sensitive. Again, like you. Look how angry and aggressive you got at a simple comment. You think talking tough makes you tough like Anderson Silva? Everyone here knows you’ve never been in a fight once in your life. So stop pretending that you have.

      • Mike b says:

        I never said it bothered me dude..damn I said I enjoyed the interview.this coming from a silva zombie?yes…I love this sport so I like a lot of fighters but I have my favorites also.i really dont dislike no fighters.that’s ok with u right?i never take this sport too personal it’s not like it will effect my well being or anything.these guys are not running for fucking president.everybody is different and has there on opinions so everybody can’t think like u if that was the case the human race would be doomed…just joking all seriousness I respect ur opinion cause ur speaking ur mind and don’t care what other people think,I can u should respect mine.hooorahhh!

        • Mike b says:

          I played baseball when I was a kid for seven yrs and play softball now.i train at ultimate mma in north haven ct but I’m about to go to a school that renzo has in west haven I have been pretty and still am competitive.and it’s obvious chael’s playing head games bro. Chael never talked so much trash when he fought horn,renato,Mia,or Nate,I know this sport bro come on…he started going crazy with Anderson.i noticed right up Sunday mr America.peeeaaaace!!!!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          And you know why he has done that to Silva, because he knows where Silva is weak mentally and he did it to get to him. Silva is the champ for a reason he is strong mentally and took more to break him. That is why Sonnen has backed off because he broke him and made him get mad. Up until then, he needed to go further. Silva was not easy. He may be the most mentally strong second only to GSP and Sonnen perhaps….You post up too. And don;t want to hear any excuses like last time. If Sonnen loses than I will give my analysis of why, just like last time. And I do mean Peace…

        • WrestlingRules says:

          And I do RESPECT you, but I never respect opinions. That’s what life is about challenging each other. I don’t mind the challenges I get on here at all. NONE of this bothers me. I can see you are more honorable and powerful person because you don’t seem to get mad. That is the character of a superior person.

          Just remember opinions and beliefs are a dime a dozen. They are to be challenged. Poor beliefs and opinions are to be discarded like worn out socks. I love ALL people because we are all ONE of the one race the human race. But I hate beliefs and beliefs are NOT people….HooRah and Peace….

  13. GRT 3000 says:

    He’s switching gears now cuz he knows the show is over after tomorrow night; now he wants to play the good guy. bullshit all day long.

  14. stan871 says:

    i seriously wish i knew what Renzo told him, he seems humbled now. Even at the weigh in he seemed humble. Somethings not right here….. And no i dont think its because hes scared or any of that shit that other people will say, i think he reality checked him, but i dont think Chaels gonna flop like everyone says. I love the Gracie’s and their legacy, Im just really curious to what he told him.

    • GRT 3000 says:

      he told him he was a fag and a phony…

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Go read the post on Renzo, he states what he told him. But I can tell you why he has backed off. It is because Sonnen got to him mentally. He made him mad and now that he got him where he wants him there is no need to continue. I know most posters on here have little competition skills in sports or fighting. And if they do, they must not have been very successful. Silva is one of the mentally strongest fighters in the UFC. How do you think a fuckin’ counter-striker has been able to be champ so long??? His skill level is low, but mentally he is one of the top. All the talk by Sonnen was to break down that mental strength. Once Silva lost it, Sonnen knew he got him and why beat a dead horse. You see anger needs fuel to continue and when Sonnen removed the fuel, Silva has to continue to stay emotionally unstable to keep up the intensity, but he gets it form himself and NOT Sonnen. Do you not see how Superior Sonnen is mentally??? Renzo just told him that he believes he will be champ and he can now tone it down. Anybody disagree??? lmao…..

      • GRT 3000 says:

        nah, the Brazillian just filled his mind up with what to think and how to act and Sonnen obeyed. he knows what time it is; all the bullshit is over and that’s the only part he’s good at.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Nice to see some humor from such a sensitive person….lol…..Renzo knows Sonnen will beat Silva and wants him to be more champion like. Whereas Silva;s true character has been revealed here. So when Sonnen wins tonight will you say he is the BEST??? Cuz I see Sonnen-Silva III in the works for a soccer stadium in Brazil…..Will that be your excuse, the fight was fixed????

        • GRT 3000 says:

          oh the fat kids blogging – it just never stops when you have nothing else to do.

          Hey! look out the front of your trailer – not at the swamp, look up. Is the sun shining?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You’re a genius…pure genius…..hahahahahahaha….HooRah…

        • GRT 3000 says:

          Hey dickwad…Hoorah still said the same in Portuguese?

          Looks like you’ve had about a books worth blogging (on your leather ass) disproved in under 2 rounds…which basically means you know sweet fuck all; but I already knew that.

          In other news – The Greatest of All Time retains his title for a 10TH! consecutive title defense and 15TH! consecutive win in UFC.

          Soak that into your meathead. lmao

  15. Dee says:

    This dude is such a con artist. All of a sudden he’s the good guy. This dude has disrespected Silva for 2 years, and now that Silva is pissed off he’s the good guy. It’s like throwing the brick and hiding your hands. I don’t buy it. Sure he might be a good guy, but he started this BS.

  16. Kong says:

    Show some respect to that 2nd round tko. Haha

  17. DJ says:

    plz let there be silva vs sonnen 3. sonnen really fucked up with that back fist i hope sonnen makes his way back to another title fight its gonna be a long road.

    • Brian says:

      Nah, it’s over. Anderson has Chael’s number now.
      You saw, Chael couldnt get a single takedown in Rd 2. He threw the spinning backfist in desperation and Silva took advantage of it completely.

      Another fight will probably end up the same way. Let Anderson retire so we can rejuvenate the MW division.
