Everyone's favorite zany middleweight Chael Sonnen recently weighed on a topic that has made the round a bit since UFC 134 - the fact that Anderson Silva said he went into his fight with Yushin Okami with an injury and took anti-inflammatories for the injury. Silva also said he was injured entering his fight with Sonnen at UFC 117, so Chael wasn't about to pass up an opportunity to say something about it. This dandy of a quote was said to Paul Lazenby:

"I don't think that treatment for Anderson's problems is prohibited by the UFC, even right before a match. Some medications are limited, as you know, but Anderson is in a state of medical legitimacy because I don't think that Midol is prohibited, nor are chocolate or Gerard Butler movies. I have never personally had to deal with his sort of condition, but I feel for him and I really want to see what his top fighting form actually is, since we apparently haven't seen it yet. I can't remember the last time that he didn't say he was hurt for a match, and it's starting to alienate the fight fans. So he should take care of himself when he's suffering, or else the public will be stuck with the same unengaging fights and lackluster victories until he either dies or finally hits menopause."

nearly every fighter comes into a fight w/ an injury, so i usually don't consider it news when a fighter says they were injured in a fight, including anderson, unless it was obvious it affected them during the fight.

i wish chael had a podcast

You and me both! His trash talk is so witty and not just the average "He's a p***y, and I'm going to whip his ass." I could listen to it all day.

I don't see the point in Sonnen mentioning it, aside from staying relevant in the media. All fighters suffer injuries during training, guys like Alessio Sakara and Big Nog can seem to walk down the street without getting hurt. The only issue I have with injuries are when they are used as serious excuses, like Tito does. Sure, Silva has mentioned that he has some sort of injury after almost every fight, but it's not like he's losing. Aside from Sonnen himself, Silva is dominating everyone, so what's the big issue about stating his injuries to the public?

being a sore winner? trying to make himself appear more invincible than he pretty much already is?

i think he comes off more arrogant and cocky by acting like "hey i won fighting at 80% hahahahaha" even though i believe its false and he is babying a little bruise or something.

I'm sorry but chael has never had my interest with his gibber gabber :-s
Everyone can state such things, he just knows how to 'sell' it. I for one do not follow on his 'hype' of trashtalking.
True, he can trashtalk, but that's all..
I mean trashtalking a fight like he does, ok.. But then trying to back that up by using roids.. Get some balls instead of roids?
If you can never live up to the expectations you build yourself, let it be..
And yeah let him talk about Silva.. wtf, he lost to him while on droids (When Silva may or may not have been injured =)

Legitimate point? You think Anderson Silva was actually on his period?

Anway.... Anderson won. If a guy complains about injuries after a loss, no bueno. If he mentions a loss after a victory, so what?
