UFC 148 aka "I'll Break All Of Your Teeth"

I am a fair weather MMA fan. I have tried, but it is just not the same as boxing. Then again boxing is not the same boxing, at least the kind I remember. However, I do like to watch the large personalities go at it, in both boxing and MMA. The most interesting rivalry in the fight game right now is Anderson Silva v. Chael Sonnen. They are going to go at it on July 7 in UFC 148, which I will be buying.

By way of backstory, Silva beat Sonnen in their previous match. Sonnen has been taunting Silva mercilessly and begging for a rematch. Sonnen is the best trash talker in the game, if not all of sports. Apparently he has gotten inside Silva's head. The problem- Silva is widely regarded as the best MMA fighter in the world. The normally mild mannered Silva has either decided he will play ball in the promotion game or is genuinely pissed. Here are some of the comments he made this week.

"What I'm going to do inside the Octagon is something that's going to change the image of the sport," the Portuguese-speaking Silva said through his translator and manager Ed Soares. "I'm going to make sure every one of his teeth are broken, his arms are broken, his legs are broken.


"He's not going to be able to walk out of the Octagon by himself. I can guarantee that."

Maybe this UFC ain't such a bad idea after all...lol...is this a participant or a round number girl Mr. Baker? Boxing is sadly fading but the saddest part is that the Heavyweight division is pathetic and has been since Iron Mike left...

I am not sure what Ms. Palmer is, but God bless the USA and the UFC for creatures like her!

Sonnen is crazy...never heard of him before...but what a great promoter. If you want to men over 150lbs actually hit each other, its mma at this point. I saw a top ten heavyweight boxer list last night on espn....2 americans and 8 euros, none id ever heard of except the brothers k. Pathetic...I guess they are all in the nfl.

Matt- Sonnen is the best fight promoter since Ali IMHO. Serious gift for promoting. Hope he can at least make a good showing tonight.

Sonnen dominated the first round, but Silva showed what beast he is with the TKO in the second round.
