The only pressure on Spider is to win. Same as for any other fight, including when he beat Sonnen first time around

Beat worse? Sure, nobody had been as dominant. But he wasn't really beaten up.

He lost almost all of the fight, yet he left without a scratch or a bruise, and was injured coming in.

This time he's most likely gonna be looking for a KO, rather than a sub.

Or was the surprise that Chael elected to take him to the ground and work him over?

Chael fought Anderson the same way he fights everyone. Move forward to attack, look for the takedown, ground and pound. There were only three surprises in that fight. 1) How easily Chael controlled Anderson. 2) That Chael was twice able to knock Anderson down with his fists. 3) That Anderson managed the miracle submission after losing every minute of the fight prior to that.

The surprise was him getting in his face.

Nobody, other than Sonnen expected him to do that standing.

Anderson now knows that Sonnen is capable of doing that when Anderson has his hands down waiting for a takedown.

It was the best 23 minutes Sonnen has fought his whole career, and it still wasn't enough.

Can he duplicate that, but for 25 minutes?

Anderson always knows he can beat him. Sonnen just thinks he can.

Oh, god...every time Silva decides to showboat it ends up being a shitty fight.

I hope he comes to fight instead of showcasing his various taunts.

LOL yeah i was pretty shocked to hear my boy go off like that, but just think for a second guys, remember Andy's documentary "like water" when his manager and Dana were urging him to promote the fight but he wouldn't rise to Cheal's smack talk? perhaps this time Andy agreed? because looking at the reaction it's certainly got more people pumped up,

I don't for one second believe Silva will fight with his emotions, he's way too experienced for that, but the question is what will Cheal be thinking? he was way more quiet than usual i think, for three years it's been him doing all the talking, now i think this will give him something to think about,

As a Silva fan i'm on edge about this, the first fight was very hard to watch, but imo there can be no doubt that the injury played it's part, it f#cked with his training and in turn effected his performance, what gives me hope though is round 4 of that fight, Anderson suddenly got some movement going and caught Cheal with a lovely elbow, after that Cheal was in retreat mode, and when he's going backwards he's vulnerable i think, plus Andy managed to snuff two takedowns in that round aswell,

No doubt it should be a *******, and i'm hopeful that Andy will have his hand raised at the end of the night again!! .

"Chael is a criminal, he is a criminal. He has been convicted of crimes and he doesnít deserve to be inside the Octagon. When the time is right, I am going to break his face and every one of his teeth in his mouth. Playtime is over, the jokes are over. I am going to beat his ass out of the UFC. He is never going to want to fight again after I am done with him. It doesnít matter if I am on bottom, side or top. Chael is going to get his ass kicked like never before. What I do inside the Octagon is going to change the image of the sport. I am going to make sure his legs are broke and arms are broke he will not be able to walk out by himself. I know he is listening; no more **** talking, it is on now. Iím going to make him pay and make him eat everything he said about myself and my country. Iím going to make sure he does not disrespect any other fighter. Iím going to beat him like his parents should have beat him to have manners. He can say whatever he wants, but I am not playing anymore. It will be the same like the first fight. He walked out the loser and this time he is going to walk out the loser. The only difference is that this time he is going to have to visit a plastic surgeon after the fight.Ē
He seems quite disgruntled

It's just the non-stop trash that Sonnen talked and got under Silva's skin.

Spider was always a calm, cool, calculated assassin and goes about his business the same way everytime.

Sonnen gave us thrills the first time and will probably again, but Anderson is just one complete fighter to just beat.

Has trash talk proven to make the actual fight more entertaining? Style wise Sonnen is a pretty good matchup for anderson, but I still think Silva takes it. Submission probably by the second round.

Holy shit if he carries through! Eagerly anticipating a prolonged beating like Tyson-Biggs.
