Chael Sonnen: PRIDE as fake as Wand's eyebrows


Wanderlei Silva made a name for himself dominating in Japan's PRIDE organization. At one time Silva was undefeated in four years after debuting in PRIDE, but rival Chael Sonnen doesn't put too much weight on his time spent there:

"This guy drives me crazy. This guy has driven me crazy for years. I used to watch this guy fight in something called the PRIDE Fighting Championships. This was as fake as Wanderlei Silva's eyebrows."

Apparently/Supposedly Wanderlei failed to show up for his medical exam and has been replaced by Vitor according to cagedinsider. Chael didn't call Wanderlei bailing at all did he? ...

Chael has jumped the shark. I wish he would just shut the fuck up already but whatever. I guess this type of crap appeals to "wwe" fans and the like.

  Lol, Chael subbing a well past his prime, 3 knee surgeries into it Shogun Rua is more impressive than Wanderlei's Grand Prix win, where he KO'd Page cold (twice by the way) Oh wait, you probably have never watched any of the sport before 2012, and just go by what your hero says If you are truly being objective and not buying in to Chael's gimmick, it's impossible to compare the 2 legacy wise. They started their careers within a year of each other in MMA and while Wand was the 5 year reigning champ of the most prestigious org in the world (UFC was nowhere close to PRIDE at the time)... Chael was losing in the B leagues. A lot.

  This sums everything up perfectly. Good job. I like Chael, but this is how history will remember both. Chael has had some good performances though. But yeah, Wand is world's above him legacy wise and always will be. Chael's a great talker though. Truly a student of pro wrestling, I see a lot of Scott Hall and Billy Graham in his schtick. It certainly got him over and made him a star, so that's cool I guess. Fighting wise, though.. yeah.
