Silva: Sonnen will be the next President


It's no secret that Chael Sonnen is perhaps the best self-marketer in all of mixed martial artists, and two time-foe Anderson Silva believes he could parlay that into a political run:

"This guy will be the next president of the United States (laughs)," Silva said during an interview to Metro. "He’s smart, political, knows how to promote himself. He’s not an athlete with great results, but he knows how to promote himself. He knows how to use the UFC, and that’s something that many other athletes can’t. He’s very intelligent."

Sonnen moved up to the light heavyweight division after losing to Silva for the second time, and the Brazilian discards that possibility in case he loses again to Chris Weidman on Dec. 28, at UFC 168.

"There are a bunch of 205-pound guys on my team," he said. "Rafael Cavalcante, Rogerio Nogueira, Glover Teixeira… I have no intentions to move up."

LOL, calling somebody stupid for one-sided bias doesn't require being mad, it's like being a teacher in LD, somebody gotta tell them they're stupid. I'm the insult champ so you give it and I shove it up your ass.  The fact is you started crying over a percieved peripheral insult even AFTER Anderson said your hero could be President. You couldn't take the slightest marginalization of your disgraced politician, PED, TRT king getting the business. I called you a hypocrite. You are. Worse than that you used the word 'groupie' but groupies suck dick, and nobody is sucking a dick harder than you're sucking Sonnen in this thread. I'm soooo sowwy Andeweson told your middle-of-the-road kingpin he was middle of the road. It had to happen, never has a C student been so celebrated, but then again my guess is that C was top shelf in Bumfuck, Idaho or wherever you Chaelite douchbags are cropping up from. Just a guess. Also, Tito Ortiz hasn't won a truly significant fight since SEG, Forest Griffin was the champ who beat the top of the division. I dare you to name who he SHOULD have beaten to be in your 'elite' status. All this opinion about what 'Andy thought' is just more hypocritical bullshit you don't know, you're just saying it because you think it makes a point you don't have. There is no more to the 205 division Forest could've beaten, and there is very few others at this point that he wouldn't at least hang with. The other big names I listed fought before April '09 so naturally you have no knowledge on them that doesn't include 'pedia' in it's name.  You know all of this was just trying to portray Anderson as not fighting the big fights. Even more hilarious while calling Hendo elite, the same Hendo who got beat by a 170lbr. I'd like to see that happen to Forest Griffin. C'mon son. PS: Anderson and Chael fought twice, Chaelites like to forget the second one, you only hear about the '4 rounds', never about that knee to the chest that folded your king in 2 parts. In fight #2 he GOT HIS ASS WHIPPED. Ass WHIPPED. Like most Chael fans it's all about fight #1, just like insults are comedy for Chael but it's a deadly serious diss for Anderson calling your super-gatekeeper a super-gatekeeper. It's true, you're just stoked that somebody who likely has your hairstyle can actually do the things you'd like to do. He's who you aspire to be, talking shit and taking people down like a true gun-slinger. First it was John Wayne, then Mel Gibson, now it's Chael. You're Chael in your mind, aren't you super-nerd?  I'd say that was else enough.

haha you're mad, excellent.  yeah, a few things whine and moan? all i said was a super quick reply to someone who called bonesshogun a hater for stating a pure fact and i said if u want to play the hate card direct it at andy for not giving proper due, to a another fighter after the rivalry is long finished.  chael talked shit DURING their rivalry, and he's a known funny man WWE type.  andy isn't even giving credit long after the time for pre fight shit talk,  for having a good career (that's fine, it doesn't bother me but that doesn't mean i didn't notice it).  bonesshogun simply said u can say the same about all andy's opponents then, w/the exception of 2.  how many legit A level fighters in their prime has andy beat during his reign? it's a very short list, that is a fact.  no shame in that, he's had a great career.  u have to know when to get butthurt.  on andy threads you're like a goalie and comments about andy that aren't glowing praise are the pucks flying in.  you park yourself in each andy thread like a beiber groupie trying to stop every puck.  like tim sylvia as a goalie and all the pucks are hamburgers.  you want to talk about "sad," look at that everyone knows the deal on forrest including forrest who will be the first to tell you he's a mid level fighter that fought with a ton of heart and got by on that for a little while.  seeing the fight with andy, it was pathetic.  never seen a fighter fight more scared or serve his head up on a platter.  andy knew it'd be a one sided beating which is why he accepted.  andy would never fight a legit killer at LHW and u know it.  that's my only issue with andy. shit name gets brought up, he's down.  a killer gets mentioned, him and soares shoot that shit down quick. if andy fought tito too you'd be all about the "former LHW champ Tito! He beat him!" when you know tito is a shell of his former self, because it suits your bias better.  and if andy pimped slapped Mohammad Ali in his wheel chair you'd say "he beat the greatest!" so whatever, suck that teet goalie lol.  look man, you can say andy won in chael/andy #1.  but u can't say Chael got his "ass whipped."  that is a joke that further shows your beiber groupie bias.  i have NEVER seen a man get his ass "whipped" for over 4 rounds like Andy did in that fight and i challenge you to name one fight where someone, for 4+ rounds, had more of a one sided beating.   anything else?

You have literally just proved why there will only be one Chael Sonnen.People love Chael because they look past his shtick and see a guy who they'd like to be.And then there's people who love Anderson 'the no.1 p4p goat all things mixed martial arty' Silva's nuts so much, they hate Chael for saying things to their hero with no fear.And the fact that you've remembered all that stuff about Chael means you've taken notice of him and care, to a degree, about what he has done and will do.
