Quote of the Day: Chael Sonnen Says Nobody Cares About Anderson Silva

"It was hard to watch…I didn’t watch the whole thing, but I tried.  I saw the beginning and I saw the end.  I was having plenty of conversations during it, I’m in the same boat as the rest of the world.  Who cares?  Nobody cares about Anderson Silva."

"He talked about retiring and nobody cared.  He talked about going heavyweight and nobody cared.  Now he talks about going to 205, and nobody cares!  I did an autograph signing with Anderson Silva, there was a line around the building to get to my room.  You could have heard a rat piss on cotton in his room!  Nobody was in there.  Nobody cares about Anderson Silva, it’s the hardest sell in the world.  Nobody shows up to see him.  If BJ Penn wasn’t on that card that building’s empty Saturday night."

"I’ve stuck my finger in this guy’s chest for 3 and a half years and he’s fought everyone in the world that isn’t named Chael Sonnen. I can’t tell you what a nuisance he is. This isn’t like some exciting thing to get to fight him, it’s just truly an annoyance, and I’m looking forward to it being over with just so I can move on and be done with the jerk."

Chael Sonnen, speaking to Mauro Ranallo on the Fight Show about Anderson Silva..  Who knows how the fight will be, but the build to the fight will be tremendous.  Behind all the bravado, Sonnen has to know how dangerous this fight is, but if he finds a way to pull it off he could become the most popular fighter in the UFC.

Can Sonnen steal one of the first 3 rounds and then grind out 4 and 5?  That has to be the strategy.
