Dana White: Chael not afraid of Anderson Silva's 'Tyson aura'

source: prommanow.com
 

"I don't ever give predictions," said UFC President Dana White. "But a lot of people don't like Chael or like Chael, whatever the case may be.

"I do believe that Anderson Silva is the greatest fighter ever in MMA history, not just the UFC... He's broke every record in UFC history, and Chael Sonnen is the only guy to almost beat him.

"I think it's going to be a fun fight. It's going to be either an absolute war, or Anderson's going to go out and destroy him quickly, or I who knows."

"The thing I like about Chael, he's nutty as hell, I mean half the s--- the guy says is like what, right? But, he backs it up. When the guy goes in there and fights man he fights. I know this, most guys go in and they're scared, when they fight Anderson. They're intimidated. He's got like that Tyson aura. People are scared and afraid.

"Chael Sonnen is not afraid of Anderson Silva. He's not. And that makes it a completely different fight than anybody else he fights."

People dont beat Silva from the clinch, where Bones gets all of his takedowns. Look at the Hendo fight, first round gets taken down. Second round Hendo tries to clinch and gets kneed in the face and beat down for the rest of the round.Chael shoots for double legs. Totally different. In reality i think Silvas a much worse matchup for Bones than vise versa
