Eventually, without any more provocation, Wandy made some semi-vague threats. Sonnen realizing that Wandy was on crutches (I think he was I'm a little fuzzy) and that if they fought he would be arrested, bit his tongue save for a very sarcastic "thank you". Ever since then everyone thinks Wandy "punked" Chael, whereas I see it as Chael was in an uncomfortable situation, but ignored it to avoid losing his title shot, going to jail, and gaining the stigma of beating up an injured aging legend.

    no he did what a true man does he knew his place and knows you can't go around hitting people at work

    So his friendly warning was don't call the Brazilians a bunch of thugs because they will murder you. Under that premise, Wandy isn't doing a whole lot to defend against Chael's sterotypical insults.

    He said if you don't show respect you can lose your teeth is a saying in Brazil. How does that have anything to do with murder or calling people a bunch of thugs?

    I don't see how the incident is a big deal at all. Sonnen didn't feel like getting into an argument so he just kept quiet. But since it was videotaped, it turned into a big deal. And now Sonnen is using that to promote a fight he didn't really care about before.

    I was joking but the disrespect thing is in reference to Sonnen calling Brazilians thugs and the murder part is about simplejack mentioning murder.

    Sonnen will absolutely MAUL Wandy, and I will enjoy every minute. If you're fighting the champs why would you use a fight to fight Wand? Now that he won't be fighting for a title soon, he might as well fight Wand. I very seriously doubt that Chael is at all scared of Wand.

    YEAH!!! Kevo, you're in the wrong here, IMO...What would be the point of him even saying anything to Wandy who was, like, a fight away from being cut from the UFC?

    He had bigger fish to fry and there's no point starting some random beef with someone who isn't even a contender...

    Wandy had all the right to speak up for feeling slighted by Chael, or sticking up for his country.

    Where it becomes seriously unprofessional is when you start making vague threats, posturing, and becoming aggressive.

    The negatives that would of came from Chael engaging in any sort of street fight would of been immense.

    Don't forget the whole injury part. I don't like the whole macho street fight crap either, but if somebody wants to go that route then they should realize Wandy couldn't even fight.
