"You want me to let you in on a secret, Anderson Silva speaks perfect English. He just has such a low amount of respect for you and all the rest of the media that he pretends he doesn't. I've had conversations with Anderson Silva in perfect English, and on top of that he's so boring to listen to that he and his rocket scientist manager, Ed Soares, who is also about as exciting as watching grass grow, have decided that Ed is better on the mic than Anderson, so just let Ed do the talking."

Sonnen is about as relevant in the UFC's 185 division as Jason MacDonald was...

Considering that Sonnen defeated what many considered a top-five middleweight in his last fight, a solid top-twenty fighter in Dan Miller in his fight before that, and is next fighting Nate Marquardt in a title eliminator, I disagree.

Chael Sonnen's got a character to sell.

Sonnen has to draw in the headlines while the edge of the spotlight is hovering over him. witht hat said, i can see what he is getting at. it is funny to me how we once saw Anderson as this humble warrior, but as time went on the real Anderson came out and we saw the nasty, cocky side of him. i just can't wait for the guy to lose.

HE could at least call Silva out on the Vaseline rubbing while entering the ring against Thales Leites....

If it is true, it does not surprise me from Silva. He is not the fisrt and will not be the last that does not care about american opinion(see fedor) ...It was kind of ouvious since he understood all questions asked without any traductor help and that usually means that he can talk! Ed is doing a great job and i cannot help but wonder if he would have such a mystic cloud surrounding him is he talked perfect english in interviews!

Chael is going to beat the crap out of Anderson
























i do like him though and I think it'll really make things interesting if he could beat Nate but Nate is a monstrous man.

Sonnen like Soares says needs to be focusing and talking about Nate Marquardt not Anderson Silva. He has a fight with one of the best MW's in the world and he's talking about the champion? IF he gets by Nate then he can start this to build a fight but this is just stupid to attack Anderson like this other than to build himself and get a fight with him by making Anderson mad which when we saw everyone was bad mouthing him and he got mad what happened to Forrest Griffin. Doesn't seem very smart and just a way to get people to not like him but meh whatever. I don't see him getten past Nate.

he can talk his crap but it wont do him any good if he loses to marquart. i dont see him pulling out the victory over marquart, i think marquart should get another chance at a title shot.

Call me a hater, but there's nothing I dislike more than a boring lay n pray wrestler talking like he's the king of the world....

Chael was talking the same crap about silva before Chael's fight with Maia. He was saying how him and maia are the two best middleweights in the world, silva can't hang, blah blah etc....and ended up tapping before the midpoint of the first round.

Nate should beat Chael, but i'd LOVE to see Silva against Chael. Chael can pretty much pick his poison in that fight. We all know he can't stand with silva, so he'll prolly take him down, where silva will easily submit him.

Marquardt is gonna boss Sonnen around. We'll never see Chael fight for the UFC MW title.

first off anderson would murder chael sonnen. the only reason sonnen is talkin all this crap is because no one knows who he is (casual fans i mean). he's gotta be the most boring fighter in the ufc. He's an asshole to (read sherdogs pro's picks) everytime he's asked about a mainevent he talks $hit about both fighters. he has no respect for any fighter, he's a politician so he's good at makin stuff up, he dominated okami, but then again its not hard to dominate someone when they do nothing at all. i have no respect for sonnen, and think marquardt is gonna hurt him, badly

i have to agree, that i used to think he was silent because he is humble, i kinda think that now... he is silent because he's too good for everyone

Sounds like a hater to me does anyone really care if Silva doesn't talk if he just destroyed a top 10 MW or LHW it shouldn't matter IMO dude proves himself to be the best with every fight without talking trash
