Sonnen is going to get crushed tomorrow. The last thing you want to do is motivate Anderson Silva. This is gonna be fun to watch.

Yeah, Chael is a really brave talker outside of the ring. Once he steps in the octagon with a motivated Silva he is going to be realizing that he is going to be added to Andersons highlight reel.

I think the UFC is behind Sonnen's smack talk. I think they knew he would talk shit but told him to take it to the extreme. Fans are down on Anderson right now, if they hate Sonnen more than Anderson and he destroys Sonnen like he should it will restore the luster he's lost.

Conspiracy!!

This isnt extreme for Sonnen. This is how he always talks about his opponents

It's a little more than the norm. I have never hear Sonnen talk so much shit and ridiculous shit at that. I was totally kidding about the conspiracy thing though, but it's pretty convenient for the UFC that Sonnon is actually making Silva the good guy in all of this.

Sonnen is a trash talker, but I think he is going overboard because this is the first time he has really been on the big stage. He's trying to make a point that we don't forget about him.

Yeah there isn't a conspiracy. This is how Sonnen is. Of course it is louder and bolder now because it's a title fight against one of the P4P kings. It's only natural that he kicks it up a few notches.

By the way, if Anderson is pissed off I think Chael has accomplished something. Whether it pays off or not I don't know but he is in Anderson's head now.

For anyone that cares, you can watch the weigh-in live at 7pm EST on the UFC site.

I said it when it was first announced and I'll say it now, I like Chael Sonnen in this fight.

Chael is the best wrestler Silva has EVER faced. Silva will be taken down. Chael will control him and win this one.

I could be wrong and I have had second thoughts given Sonnen's inability to finish people. But I am 100% picking Sonnen.

I am on the exact same train of thought. I am picking Silva though. I think he will catch Sonnen eventually. I am curious to see how Silva reacts if he can't stop Sonnen's takedown or get up from his control. Silva wants this standing at all times believe that. If he can't keep it there he will get frustrated.

I'm picking Silva. Chael has some great TD's, but then what? He doesn't have real damaging GNP, he's not a guy known for finishing fights even when he's winning. Silva has good enough submissions to where Sonnon won't be completetly safe even if he gets a takedown. I don't think Sonnen can finish Silva and I don't see Sonnen being able to avoid either being KO'd standing or subbed in a full 25 minute fight.

I don't think Sonnen can finish Silva and I don't see Sonnen being able to avoid either being KO'd standing or subbed in a full 25 minute fight.

Not being able to finish Silva is my biggest fear with picking Sonnen. The idea of being in the cage with someone as dynamic as Silva for 25 minutes is scary.

But I stuck with my pick for one reason. Silva hasn't finished anyone during his UFC run after 2 rounds. Cote went 3 but injury stopped him not Silva. So if Sonnen makes this a ground war and avoids a KO or submission for 2 rounds while making Silva work, who knows what Silva can do after that.

We saw him fade against Maia in a fight that had little drama. So I honestly think Sonnen can wear him down and take it beyond 2 rounds. After that I think Silva will be less dangerous in almost all aspects.

And again, Sonnen is hands down the best wrestler Silva has ever faced.

War Chael!!!!!

I agree with a lot of what your saying. We will see what happens tomorrow night. I love this card though, Alves vs Fitch should be good and JDS vs Big Country should be fun too.

Who are you guys picking in the other main card fights?

Jon Fitch is one of my favorites so I am taking him again.

Is there anyone that doesn't want to see Roy Nelson win? I just love this big fat dude with a mullet being interviewed after fights. That being said, Dos Santos knocks him out in the 2nd.

It's the main event of a PPV. Sonnen is going to be interviewed much more often than normal, and a guy with a mouth is of course going to have the time to have even more to say.

Do you think Dana White would ever tell a guy to cool it on the "disrespect"?
Let's not forget they're also trying to sell tickets.

The UFC doesn't care if he gets humilated if they cash in on a lot of buys.

Hendo?Hendo is world class Greco Roman, but that doesn't do much for you on the ground or takedowns. Hendo's strength is in the clinch which is where everything transpires in Greco. Sonnen is a collegiate wrestler where the strengths lie in takedowns and ground control. Different styles of wrestling.

I find it hilarious that some of you clowns are actually being fooled by the Dana White hype machine. Dana has you believing that Sonnen actually has a chance in this fight. Chael is an absolute bum who is going to be destroyed by Silva. Dana is just hyping this fight to try to get Anderson back in everyones good graces again. Just because Sonnen grinded out a decision against Marquart he is going to beat Silva? Gimme a break, Silva by anything he wants. Sonnen will look like a fool.

Yes, it's true. You were not right. Sonnen gave him all he could handle for 4.5 rounds. That's better than anyone has EVER done against Anderson. If Sonnen avoided that triangle, he would have won a decision.

And the truth is that none of what Sonnen said pre-fight ended up being hype. He took the fight to Silva. He made Silva work harder than he's had to work in his entire UFC run.

He fell short due to his biggest weakness and the greatness of Silva.

But he definitely showed why people were legitimately picking him. His wrestling is better than anyone else at 185 and his top control is amazing.

YOU'RE Actually Responsible for Putting Chael Sonnen on REED's MMA Radar & EVERYTHING U've Said about him (Pre AND Post-Fight) has Been ACCURATE...His Top Control was VERY Impressive...There were NO Traces of the Lay & Pray Tactics that MANY Wrestlers R GUILTY Of:ohno:...

Sonnen was CONSTANTLY Working as he he had Silva on his Back...
