    I was replying to a GSP fan, who had "lost respect for Anderson". Didnt know it was only 3, guess I miss remembered... Thought it was around 4-5.

    Sonnen has talked so much shit about Anderson, Brazil, and people close to Anderson, he still looks like he is continuing his "therapy", and gets a laugh out of the fans for it. It was his time to answer for his actions.

    If he was actually able to win in Brazil, more power to him. Now it taking place in the US is another disadvantage to Anderson. Who is just recovering from an injury.

    No not really?

    Your just reading it out of context instead of a reply and response from another poster.

    Anderson deserves this fight in Brazil. He is totally within his rights and dues to only accept this fight in Brazil. The UFC could easily make this work, they're just dragging there heels and heads knowing the security issue will be costly.

    He totally deserves to have his home crowd behind him instead of Chael getting his way considering last time they fought it was in Chael's home country.

    Unlike GSP, Anderson doesnt get to fight in his home country that often. It would only be his second UFC fight in Brazil... How many times has GSP fought in canada...

    Thats a very stupid comparison! it's not like Brazil is next door or anything.

    I can see Anderson & Soares saying this for now. Play hardball until the games almost over, and if Dana hasn't changed they will, or a nother one of Andersons injuries will appear.

    I can't see him firing Silva... Silva is a marketable guy who brings a huge amount of revenue to the UFC. Would the UFC really want to let a guy like him go rather than let him fight in Brazil and reap HUGE financial rewards from one of the most hotly anticipated rematches in MMA history?

    Looks like this rumor is somewhat squashed:

    And whatever jackass said Anderson silva would be stripped of his title is a liar. He is fighting Chael and there has been no issue at all!!

    Yea!!!

    There is no way on hell they would fire Anderson if he declined to fight some place other than Brazil. It would be forever known as the worst mistake in MMA history.
