oh anderson,is there nobody you havent completely incensed and cut off with your recently published autobiography? Rafael, Jose Pele and now Fedrigo...


The Chute Boxe owner - who managed Anderson's career in the past, when the academy was in its prime with several fighters on PrideFC roster - is taking legal action for ‘damage to reputation’ because Anderson’s book alleges he is “a bad person” who troubled many people over the years.

Rudimar sued Anderson and is claiming for moral indemnification due to the accusations contained in the biography. Fedrigo also requires the book to be prohibited to be sold - and an initial court hearing sided with him yesterday.

“It saddened me so much, I'm very upset it got this this point. Not once did Anderson ever tell me anything face to face, eye to eye. It is lamentable that after so many years he shot me in the back and in such a cowardly fashion,”

Wouldn't his issue be with the author and publishers?

Someone is pissy that his fighter became the best in the world after the fighter left his gym.

Technically Anderson is making a book from his POV and in the book he defames these characters. This book is bringing in Anderson money. So he is making money from defaming these characters. Its fair game to sue imo.

Regardless i believe there is 3 sides to every stores. in this case Andersons, theres and the truth.

 Fedrigo fucked Anderson and many Chute Box members over back in the day.

Someone put out the WhistleBlower Bat Signal so he can help recall exactly what went down. He will always have a little anti-Anderson bias, but it should be mostly accurate recollection.

 That's not how the law works here in America, but who knows in Brazil.

If Anderson wrote that book FOR THE PURPOSE of defaming those characters there would be legal grounds. When it is just a couple pages in an autobiography it is very very difficult to win a defamation suit.

More and more people keep coming forth telling stories of Anderson's personality.

This isn't the first we have heard that he is a coward...meaning he says shit behind peoples back rather than to their face..it was said before the book too


makes you question..maybe Chael is not that far off.



Just because he is a fantastic fighter doesn't mean he is a fantastic person......Michael Jordan anyone???

You mean the money-laundering TRT cheat who creates stories about being the champion and disses people's countries?

Yea, that's the guy you should take the word of, lol

And just because you can type on a keyboard doesn't mean you are not a fucking idiot.

So I guess your analogy made perfect sense, look how well I used it!

I have an old FIGHT! Magazine that had a big article about Silva.

If what was true in the article, he did get fucked over by Chute Boxe.

Long story short. He was having money disputes with Chute Boxe and was planning on leaving and then Fedrigo told PRIDE execs not to give him any more fights.

He told them that he would pull Wanderlei if they did.

Anderson quits fighting and gets a visit from Big Nog. Nog offers him money to help him out on one condition; He has to start taking BJJ seriously and train with them.

Also, Nog tells PRIDE execs that if they don't give Anderson another fight, he won't fight for them either.

I don't know how true the article is, but that's what it said. Phone Post

I don't think that Anderson is a coward. I just think a long time ago he was abused by Chute Boxe and other organizations/people and couldn't do anything about it. Now he doesn't care who he pisses off. I think everyone has that point in life where you don't have to be scared of something anymore and so you speak what you believe is the truth. Whether it be an old boss, a parent, coach or teammate. People hold stuff in and now he's just letting it out. However, I do think that he could have handled all this better.

Is this a reading comprehension problem????


I didn't say I agreed with him...I said maybe

I've never met the guy...but Chael isn't the only one to call Anderson a coward...my point is there MAYBE something to it.


Please drop the 10 year old little girl mentality that no one can have any criticism of your idol..Silva's is one of the greatest fighters ever, there's no argument from me....but this is real life and like I said being a great fighter doesn't = being a good person.

Again I'm saying maybe...IDK...but please grow up a little and we can have an adult conversation

 Anderson seems like a douche... sure do love watching him fight though, and that trumps everything.

I've never met the guy...but Chael isn't the only one to call Anderson a coward...my point is there MAYBE something to it.

And my point was that you're picking the wrong guy to take his word from. Chael is likely to say anything about anybody...and it wasn't like I didn't put an 'lol' on the end to not make it so serious.

Please drop the 10 year old little girl mentality that no one can have any criticism of your idol..Silva's is one of the greatest fighters ever, there's no argument from me....but this is real life and like I said being a great fighter doesn't = being a good person.

Maybe you should stop assuming that Chael Sonnen has a point and then getting offended when other people don't agree with you. Should we have all said.....'oh yea, maybe he has a point'? I gave you another opinion, you acted even less than 10 because you obviously couldn't handle it.

Again I'm saying maybe...IDK...but please grow up a little and we can have an adult conversation

I'm down for adult conversations, but I'm also down for differing viewpoints. Just don't act like we're dissing you personally for having one. Like I said, I even put an 'lol' on the end just to come off less serious.
