Is Chael Dazed and Confused or a genius?
“Anderson has been picking his fights for years. He fought a Math teacher from Ohio and a one-legged Canadian. Things will be drastically different for him when he fights a world-class wrestler like myself.”
Chael Sonnen on Anderson Silva’s last few fights. This guy is a human quote machine.
“I don’t think Anderson has any fans. He’s the only guy in the world that has been a champion for 4 years and only has one sponsor. Nobody wants to associate themselves with him. Nobody wants to dress like him or be like him. I, on the other hand, have numerous sponsors who do very well. That should tell you all you need to know about his popularity.”
