    I've never seen Silva react the way he has in those two staredowns (press conference and weigh in). I'm not sure if he's just super confident or if he's hopelessly trying to intimidate Sonnen. That's crazy.

    gotta love it when chael looks out into the crowd, smiles and raises his fist like a true master of his own awesomeness lol....

    still hope silva pulls off some jedi ninja shit and runs a clinic

    dude, remember belfort? that staredown was legendary

    the look on vitor's face when he realised anderson was serious was priceless

    but chael is just not intimidated by fucking anything

    he didn't even blink at the shoulder strike

    ^That's how you see it?

    I actually saw it totally different, seemed like Chael wasn't expecting that at all, and since it was spontaneous, he was to much of a bitch to even react. I think tonight is going to be a bad 1 for Chael, and I honestly wish Farooq lived in Sauga so we could bet on a KO finish lmao

    ^I'd like to see it like that, but Chael didn't even have a passive reaction

    Like you saw the change in Vitor's eyes to an unnerved look, then he got into Silva's face

    Chael didn't even look surprised, like he was far too focussed.

    He looked scared to me in the first fight when Silva stared at him while he looked away

    I think Chael takes this TBH but I'm hoping for a crazy clinic that ends with him snoring on the canvas

    I like the bastard but I want Silva to retire with the belt

    I don't like Chael only because of his problems with performance enhancing drugs.

    In every-fight it is a bit B.S.

    There was a decent article on RM where a doctor explained for most Athletes to get this condition where they need TRT, they usually were taking performance enhancing drugs at a young age, causing the natural forming of Testosterone in the body to slow/stop all together.

    There are FEW people that probably ACTUALLY need TRT, and the ones who do probably aren't fighters. (somethings tells me a lack of TESTOSTERONE is going to make you an easier going, less prone to enjoy fighitng/getting into fights.)

    ^Yeah, I've heard that theory - The excessive testosterone levels make your body shut your balls down

    I say if you don't have the natural testosterone to be a fighter, you shouldn't be one

    You don't get to have your bones coated with steel if you don't have KO power

    Then again maybe you can, it's worth a try

    chael was completely unfased and make anderson look stupid by not even blinking. it kind of reminds me of that movie Undisputed when the guy smacked wesley snipes and he hardly reacted.

    but yes i am hoping for the anderson silva highlight reel ko.

    if chael sonnen wrestlefucks a victory, i will be mad but not shocked

    I have my feelings about the stoppage, but considering Yves Lavigne is the greatest ref of all time I'll keep them to myself. Chael fucked the fuck up. A spinning backfist? Since when do you throw strikes like that Mr. Sonnen?

    I think the stoppage was legit.....Sonnen wasn't defending himself....the punches may not have been landing but the rules say you have to intelligently defend yourself.....see Chuck-Tito 2
