    LOL, Vitor almost subbed Jon Jones. You don't think he would submit somebody like Chael Sonnen?

    No way he'd sub Chael late in a fight maybe in the first 2min of the first rd.
    I believe James Toney could sub Chael.

    I'm not gonna claim to know alot about BJJ, but I do know that unused skills diminish over time.

    while i would agree with vitor not subbing anyone, chael on the other hand is susceptible to subs.. so...... yeah...

    He never implied that he was offered a contract, signed it, and then Belfort refused to sign it or anything like that.

    Holy shit, you guys are really nitpicking at reasons to hate the guy now, lol.
    Contrary to what some people think, I'm not a Sonnen hater. I actually dont dislike Chael's personality, he has an enjoyably witty sense of humor, I just greatly disliked him when he started insulting Brazilian culture and hiphop culture in hyping up his fight with Silva.

    My reaction to this article was really from the point of view of one of Vitor's coaches. If I were his coach, I would've interpreted this as a bullshit gesture from Sonnen to try and look tough in the media: he could blame their inability to fight on contractual obligations to fight Jones, thus avoiding looking weak.

    To put it simply, I would've called what I perceived as Sonnen's bluff. Sonnen could potentially win the belt from Jones in 4 months, so if Vitor could get the hype started now by calling the bluff, he could potentially shit talk his way (ike Sonnen) into an immediate title shot. After all, Dana has given 2 title shots to undeserving hype-able shit talkers, might as well give another undeserving shot to their love intrest, Vitor Belfort.

    once again with the plural, what other fights has Chael been offered that he "does not deserve at all" (even though he clearly deserves this fight since no one else stepped up and took the fight to begin with.)

    What people fail to realize is that refusing to fight someone is just as bad as taking the fight and losing to someone.

    Aside of that, he is a cheater, he talks his way to title shots, he is not exciting to watch, his fake Troll persona is not funny, what reason there is to be his fan??
    TITLE SHOTS? Plural? like more than one? please show me the other title shot he "talked his way into"

    Not exciting to watch - Marquart/AS 1 and 2/Stann all exciting fights, you just dont like sonnen.

    what resaon is there to be his fan - He actually steps up to the plate and fights. He backs up everything he says in the Octagon and the same cant be said about many of the other "fighters" in the UFC

    Yeah I agree with you, but they probably should. At least feed somebody to Sonnen, and then give him Belfort.
