Yushin Okami meets Anderson Silva in Brazil at UFC 134 on Aug. 27 for the UFC world middleweight title, in a rematch of a fight he won by disqualification. Okami, presumably after seeing Chael Sonnen dominate Silva at UFC 117 for four rounds (before losing to a triangle in the fifth and final round), chose to train with Sonnen in preparation for UFC Rio. Although the choice of training partner is an obvious one, in an interview on Sunday with Brazil's O Globo newspaper, Silva had dismissive words for the decision.

“You have to find the best people to train with, and I think [Okami] chose wrong,” Silva said. “I’d never align myself with a loser, a loser in every sense. He didn’t win the fight [between us] and got caught doping. You want to be a champion? Get with good people, with winners. Moreover, Sonnen wasn’t a tough opponent for me. I was injured with cracked ribs and fought five rounds. If I hadn’t been injured, the fight would have been different.”

“Brazilians are involved in MMA; they’re talking about it. Many people call me to talk and to tell me they’ll be at my fight. They want to see me live. It’s a different emotion. I’m starting to feel like Brazil vs. Argentina, not the rivalry but the pressure. I’m trained not to feel pressure, to approach it as just one more fight. And I’ll have to train because [Okami] will be well-trained, just like the Argentines when they come to play here [in soccer].”

RickMartelsArrogance -
The broken rib myth was cracked when the pre-fight footage backstage came out of AS practicing one flying knee after another, something most people obviously do with a broken rib...

 TRUTH


And go back to the pre fight interviews, Chael fought sick. He had a nasty respiratory infection that affected his breathing ....it was obvious he was really under the weather from hearing his voice in the interviews

 Silva speaks the truth. Phael is a double loser at least. Three or four-time loser if you consider his realty and political failings.

 Yes, Chael is a loser.

He requires extensive testosterone therapy just to live a normal life and still kicked the crap out of Silva for 20+ minutes before he gassed due to a terrible upper resperatory infection and got caught with a sloppy triangle.

Loser in every sense of the word.

The nasty respiratory infection also never happened, much like the interview about Lance Armstrong. Phone Post

Chael even said it in the press conference 2 days before the fight...

“I'm sore, tired, under the weather, over trained, under motivated and still tough enough to kick this guy's ass."  There's video of it. You can tell by his voice, he was sick

 As a Chael fan, I love this.

It's good to see Silva with some venom, some personality. Makes him interesting.

Looks like he learned something from his bout with Chael, after all.

Jeremy Botter of Heavy.com confirms Chael was sick when he fought Anderson:

Sonnen was sick with the flu in the days leading up to the fight and was taking medications for both — medications which are known to trigger false positives in drug screening.

Did Chael beat Anderson? No. LOSER.

Did he beat his steroids test? No. LOSER.

Did he beat the judicial system? No. LOSER.

Did he beat Kizer and CSAC ? No. LOSER.

ANDERSON IS CORRECT.

 Is Jeremy Botter a liar too? He posts on this forum. Maybe he can chime in. He covered the event the entire week... from Tuesday through Saturday night. You calling him a liar too?

 The Nogs are brain damaged. What do you expect from them? At this point, they'd tell you the Easter Bunny is their boxing coach

Machida actually claims Seagal is a real coach. You lose credibility when you start talking about Seagal being a real coach.

The Nogs also said AS was moving to 205 which AS said was not true.

Convenient that Anderson opens up after Sonnen gets shelved. Convenient also that Anderson is a farly elderly man who will likely retire before a reinstated Sonnen would be able to rematch him.

I hate to say it, but Anderson comes across as cowardly in this interview. I hope Seagal catches wind of this shamefulness and wristlocks the budo back into him.
