Top 40 Chael Sonnen Quotes

by

UFC fighter Chael Sonnen has turned into arguably the greatest sound byte in all of sports.Today we celebrate Sonnen’s wit by looking back at his top 40 quotes. Why 40? Because anything less wouldn’t be enough!

Sonnen is an equal opportunity offender but appears to take more pleasure out of insulting his foreign peers. The bulk of his material has been directed to Anderson Silva yet Sonnen has had plenty of insults to toss the way of Michael Bisping, Wanderlei Silva, Mirko Cro Cop, Cyborg Santos, Georges St-Pierre, and Lyoto Machida. In addition to the insults, Sonnen’s high opinion of Chael Sonnen also makes for fun fodder. Thanks to the wonderful archives of Twitter and You Tube, here is a look back at Chael’s greatest hits.

Wanderlei Silva Out, Vitor Belfort In vs. Chael Sonnen at UFC 175

by

The UFC has lost its biggest grudge fight of the year. Wanderlei Silva vs. Chael Sonnen is off but fear not Brazilians. A new Brazilian hero has stepped up to fight Sonnen and his name is Vitor Belfort.

News broke early Wednesday evening that Wanderlei Silva had not shown up to get licensed to fight Sonnen on July 5. According to a report, Silva no-showed the procedure and left the Nevada State Athletic Commission hanging. It didn’t take long for the UFC to step into action and sign a new fight.

The UFC released the following statement to the media. “Due to issues related to Wanderlei Silva’s licensing in the state of Nevada, the UFC was forced to seek a replacement opponent to face Chael Sonnen at UFC 175 on Saturday, July 5 in Las Vegas. Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort has accepted the fight with Sonnen, subject to ..click here to read more , ,

Top 20 MMA Fights Of 2013

by

In honor of the UFC’s 20th anniversary this year, I figured it only appropriate that my year end fight countdown involved the top 20 fights from the calendar year 2013. Although not all of these fights took place in the UFC it’s hard to ignore the UFC’s place at the head of the class in terms of mixed martial arts promotions. Although there are a number of other promotions represented in the list including Bellator, Maximum Fighting Championship, ONE FC and Invicta. Enough rambling, let’s get to the year’s top fights.

#20 – ONE Fighting Championship: Moment of Truth – Featherweight Championship Bout: Honorio Banario vs. Koji Oishi – December 6, 2013

The opening round of this bout wasn’t the most exciting, but the second and third rounds really make up for it. In title bout rematches, this is often the case, especially in a fight between two proven power punchers like ..click here to read more , , , , , ,

Wanderlei Silva Wants To Suck On Chael Sonnen’s Blood

by

I know Wanderlei Silva has been hit in the head a lot over the last 20 years but this may be one of the strangest fighter-to-fighter threats I have ever heard. The Axe Murderer has a taste for Chael Sonnen’s blood and he wants to savor it.

As a pro wrestling fan I love a great war of words in the UFC. It doesn’t happen enough for my tastes. That is why I have come to enjoy Chael Sonnen’s verbal assaults over the last few years. Chael is a wrestling fan and he gets it. Sometimes what is even better is when Chael’s opponent plays along and it appears that he and Wanderlei are ready to do some serious business.

Just days after being obliterated at the end of the first round and ironically seconds away from winning the UFC light heavyweight title (Jones’ toe would have stopped the fight between rounds), ..click here to read more ,

Chael Sonnen Wants Wanderlei Silva Next

by

The future of Chael Sonnen in the UFC has been in doubt since he was stopped in the first round against Jon Jones at UFC 159. Sonnen didn’t take long to put those retirement rumors to rest and even has an opponent in mind.

Not even a brutal beating can humble the mouth of Chael Sonnen. A few days after being embarrassed on pay per view Sonnen is already running his mouth. Sonnen is back at war again with the Brazilian fighters and has his eyes set on a fighting legend to break his 0-2 losing streak.

Sonnen wants Wanderlei Silva. Sonnen and Silva have had a beef on Twitter going back to when Sonnen was cutting promos on Brazilians in the UFC 117 build up. According to Sonnen, “I’m not going anywhere until me and Wanderlei straighten this thing out once and for all.”

“Wanderlei called me out before, but the fight ..click here to read more , , ,

UFC On Fuel TV 8 Japan 2013: Silva Vs. Stann Results and Takeways

by

It was a night filled with some bizarre scorecards and some bizarre in cage action, but the main event made up for all of that and more. Brian Stann and Wanderlei Silva engaged in a highly entertaining brawl for just under ten minutes and delivered an early candidate for Round of the Year during the first round of their Light Heavyweight tilt. Strange scorecards and Split Decisions plagued many of the other main card bouts, but overall the event has to be considered a success for the UFC and for the fans in Japan if for no other reason than seeing former PRIDE Fighting Championship heroes Mark Hunt and Wanderlei Silva emerge with emphatic victories. As usual, we’ll take a look at what happened in the fights and what’s next for the main card fighters.

by

Fresh off the successful debut of Women scrapping inside the UFC octagon, the UFC is bringing another weekend of free fights. The octagon returns to the land of the rising sun for UFC on Fuel TV: Silva vs. Stann live from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The main event of the evening features a Light Heavyweight bout between two Middleweight brawlers who decided they didn’t want to cut weight for this fight as Wanderlei Silva battles Brian Stann.

The rest of the main card features a number of Japanese and Korean fighters for the local flavor, as is the norm for overseas events. The card also promises a lot of potential excitement and there are a couple of bouts which could move fighters ever closer to title shots in their respective divisions. In the co-main event Heavyweights do battle as Stefan “The Skyscraper” Struve battles former PRIDE FC fan ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 2012-13 Winter Events Preview

by

Happy Holidays, CamelClutchBlog faithful.  I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed whatever holiday they may or may not have celebrated this year.  I don’t think there is a politically incorrect way (and if there is, please tell me) for me to address the arrival of 2013 so I’d like to start by wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

Speaking of healthy, I think we’d all like to wish a healthier 2013 for so many fighters who’ve been injured.  Yes, there is the purely selfish part of all of us who wants them healthier so they can entertain through this sport we love so much, but they obviously suffer from the lack of a paycheck.  Is GSP’s “Camp For Only One Fighter Like In Boxing” approach the answer, as Dana White recently mentioned? I have no idea.  If I knew how to stop fighter injuries, I feel like that information would be very valuable to promoters, gyms ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Wanderlei Silva Wants To Test Brian Stann’s Chin

by

Wanderlie Silva has no problem sharing his fight strategy for his upcoming UFC on Fuel TV 8 main-event against Brian Stann. Wanderlei is going in there to try and knock out his middleweight foe.

Wanderlei Silva will be stepping into the Saitama Arena on March 3 to fight what some people think may be his last MMA fight of his career. At 36-years old the UFC fighter has probably absorbed more punishment from his popular fight style than most fighters his age. Yet the pressures of retirement don’t appear to be slowing down the Axe Murderer one bit.

Silva is set to fight Brian Stann in the upcoming UFC on Fuel TV 8 headliner from Japan. The fight pits two top middleweights at the crossroads of both men’s careers. The style of both fighters has the potential to make this one an early candidate for Fight of the Year. If Silva has ..click here to read more , , ,

UFC 147: Franklin Vs. Silva II Results – Franklin Wins A War

by

UFC 147 turned was turned into a joke on blogs and in social media in the days leading up to the fight. Yet the joke was on any fan who passed on watching the event as they missed out on an outstanding main-event between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva.

While the undercard for this card was terrible on paper, I never understood the outrage at the main-event. Many criticized the headliner as a weak fight and mocked the two fighters as if they were past their primes. In the end pride took over and these two warriors went out there and had an absolute war for five rounds silencing critics and having fans scrambling to order the replay.

Rich Franklin defeated Wanderlei Silva in the main-event by unanimous decision in the Fight of the Night. All three judges gave Franklin the fight with 49-46 scores. Franklin controlled most of the fight but ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Rich Franklin & Wanderlei Silva’s Awkward Elevator Meeting – Video

by

This is an awesome video! What would happen if two UFC rivals were to wind up in the same elevator a day before they are scheduled to headline a UFC event? Well you are about to find out as Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva find themselves in an awkward situation.

I love this video. It really shows the class of both Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin in my opinion. The video was shot on Friday after the UFC 147 weigh-ins. Franklin is about to get on the elevator before realizing Wanderlei and his team are in the elevator. The guys have a lot of fun including one of Wandy’s team members who yells, “Let’s get him!”

You can check out the video for yourself here. As much crap as these guys are taking online for being a subpar main-event, they appear to be loose, calm, and in fun spirits. It is obvious ..click here to read more , ,

UFC 147: Silva Vs. Franklin II Predictions & Analysis

by

The second UFC event this weekend is a Pay Per View offering from Brazil. Originally scheduled to be headlined by Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen 2, the inability to secure a national soccer stadium began a downward spiral for this card. The card then shifted to an indoor venue, the Estadio Journalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil for Saturday June 23, 2012. The new main event was announced as a battle between the two coaches of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil; Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort. Unfortunately for the UFC the injury-bug then proceeded to continue reeking havoc on the card.

A broken hand suffered in training forced Vitor Belfort to withdraw and brought in late replacement Rich Franklin, a man who has already defeated Silva once in his career. Another major injury took out Daniel Sarafian a Middleweight finalist on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil. He is now being replaced by ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
