Ed Soares: Chael should fight Maia 1st, may have a crush on Anderson

by Joe Ferraro | source: \sportsnet.ca

"We've spoken with Chael on many occasions and have the utmost respect for him. He's never really come across in this manner, and it's obvious he's just drumming up hype in hopes to get a bout with Anderson."

"We are fine if this is what the UFC wants, but if you look at this logistically, Sonnen should fight Demian Maia first. Demian beat up easily, by submission, so why not make them fight first, to determine who gets a shot at the title?"

In various interviews, Sonnen referred to himself as the "alpha male" in the locker rooms and that Silva knew who the real "bully" was backstage.

"There's not much to say about that," statEd Soares. "It's funny, but really, who actually listens to what Chael Sonnen has to say? The only time people listen is when he talks about Anderson. Who is he, really? If you walk down the street and you mention his name, does anyone really know who this guy is? Likely not, but if you mention Anderson Silva, people know the name."

"Chael's also said a few things about Anderson's choice of clothes and that he wears earrings, didn't he? Sounds to us like he may have a crush on Anderson."

so if Chael does fight Demian, but loses again, will Demian be deserving of a title shot?No, because according to Soares Demian would have to rematch Nate Marquardt and beat him.

 Dan Henderson? Nate Marquardt? Both of those guys wanted title shots. Neither got one. Must be a reason.

 "There is nothing wrong with having an opinion. Same thing with Vitor... They said Vitor has not earned this title shot.. BUT we will fight him anyways.." Exactly...who has Anderson refused to defend against?

Was Soares calling bullshit when Anderson got his title shot after only one UFC fight against Leben? Considering his views on what it takes to earn a title shot, I assume he requested that instead of getting his title shot against Franklin, he first wanted to fight Okami again before he was worthy of a title shotFor anyone saying Sonnen doesn't deserve the next title shot, look at the facts:Sonnen is 10-2 in his last 12 fightsOne of the two losses was to Filho in a fight he was dominating & avenged in convincing fashion.He beat the number 2 guy (at the time) in the division twiceFilho and MarquardtHe beat Top 5 OkamiHe also has wins over Dan Miller, Credeur, and Suloev
