Sonnen: Wand has 'suspect chin'


Is this the end for mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Wanderlei Silva? It could be, according to top middleweight and light heavyweight contender Chael Sonnen (via UFC Tonight), who's no stranger to Silva bashing, once calling him a "stupid immigrant" and a "walking punchline."

"Wanderlei has kind of been at end of the career for a while now. He loves this sport. He is very sincere when he says he loves to fight, he loves to train and he loves to compete. The problem is he isn't winning a lot of fights. If he gets knocked out one more time, I suspect that will be the end of the road. Brian Stann has the ability to knock him out. Wanderlei has the same ability and can definitely win this fight. But he really needs it and Brian doesn't. Wanderlei's heart is big, but his chin is more suspect than Blade Runner. Brian Stann, the All-American, KO's him in the first round."

Sonnen would probably wrestlefuck Wand to a decision in the cage, but in the back of a van, I bet Wand would kick his ass, Sonnen knows.

It wasn't hilarious it was sad. It was like watching a young guy placating a senile old man who just doesn't get it.  Sonnen is playing a game, that much should be obvious to you and everyone else by now.  The fact that Wand thinks it's real is just depressing.

Said it a many a time. I far more enjoy Chael in front of a camera than in the octagon. At a pretty average 27-12-1 If I were him I’d give the training and fighting away and just concentrate on the next phase of his career.Made to commentate this man.

I understand the love for Wand but people really push their dislike of Chael no matter what he says. Wand does have a suspect chin nowadays because of the numerous wars he has had. Stann has more than enough power to put Wand away. All Chael did was make a valid point. Regarding the car video, I merely saw it as Chael yessing and kind of brushing off what Wand had to say. He gave him his due and that was that. Many may disagree but at this stage of his career, I feel Chael would own Wand and that is with no disrespect, it just is what it is.

Oh shut up. He isn't talking any trash about Wand here at all. He's giving his honest opinion and evaluation of this fight as an analyst for Fuel. He says a lot of good things about him and he's right
