I actually do feel a lot of the Anti-Silva comments are racially charged and thats coming from the heart. It's not as visible or "in your face" here because certain rules and guidelines have to be followed. However in other places (work, Youtube, other forums with loose rules) racism runs rampid.
Again I literally see Sonnen as a redneck with a pair of MMA gloves on and a license to conduct himself the way he does. For me this had little of anything to do with the skill sets of each fighter. As you said before it was much more deeper for me which was an accurate assassment.
I can't put it in words but I guess I felt the way Silva felt when he was fighting Maia. It wasn't just a regular fight to him it meant much much more.
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.
