I know I shouldn’t feed the trolls, but what can I do? Chael Sonnen is a very good troll.
“As soon as Anderson tries to punch me, I’m going to stick my forehead in his chest, run him against the fence, pick him up, put him on the canvas and that’s the end of that round. As soon as Anderson tries to kick me, I’m going to stick my forehead in his chest, run him into that fence, put him on the ground, that’s the end of that round.”
“I am five strike attempts by him away from being the UFC champion.”
Of course, this ignores the fact that some fighters are actually able to scrap on the ground. While Travis Lutter and Dan Henderson both had some success against Anderson down there, did everyone forget that Lutter met his end in a triangle from hell eating elbows to the dome? And Dan Henderson …
Yeah. I know everyone thinks Chael Sonnen is the second coming of Christ all of a sudden, and I agree: if someone’s gonna beat Anderson Silva, it’s gonna be on the ground. But five rounds is a long time. Chael Sonnen is NOT Jesus. And as we’ve seen many times before, five strikes is more than enough for Anderson to win.
