The Life and Death of Chael Sonnen


Skywalk

Recommended Posts

A very sad and beautiful poem to be read at Chael Sonnen's Eulogy following his August 7th fight with the GOAT #1P4P fighter in the world, Anderson Silva.

 

 

A division one wrestler and a clever one too,

There was no telling what this man could do.

 

He tried pro wrestling but luck was not on his side,

so he joined MMA and began to whoop some backside.

 

In two thousand two Chael's father died,

So he vowed to be champion to instill some pride.

 

In his very first fight since, in two thousand three,

his achilles' heel would then come to be.

 

Poor Chael Sonnen try as he might

he could not manage to win a respectable fight.

 

With his weakness to submissions and lack of punching power too,

he knew that pure talent alone simply would not do.

 

His first stint in the UFC seemed pre-mat-ure,

for the mid level fighters made him look ama-te-ur.

 

It wasn't until his second go-round,

that an ounce of talent would come to be found.

 

Then in two thousand ten he met Dana White,

and promised him he'd capture fight of the night.

 

Pictures in his mind Chael surely drew,

He knew not what he just got himself into.

 

He then sealed his fate with ill words towards "the spider",

in hopes that he would gain plenty a forum **** rider.

 

But deep inside he truly knew,

that all of which he said; NONE he could do.

 

He felt very sick as the fight grew closer,

but he couldn't help loving the media exposure.

 

He hoped for an ending like Rocky Balboa,

or maybe an upset like Rua-Lyoto.

 

But I assure you and sadly so,

that what Chael thought isn't how things would go.

 

He entered the octagon with his signature smile,

but stared straight at death where he stood for a while.

 

He tried to hold the glazed look he had in his eyes,

as he told himself no one in MMA dies.

 

As the bell rung Chael knew the end was near,

Anderson Silva approached and confirmed this fear.

 

With a Muy Thai clinch and knees thrown high,

A trapped Sonnen let out the shrillest of cries.

 

He tried his best not to look bad for the fans,

unfortunately death came before the ambulance.

 

Rest in peace poor Sonnen right next to dad's grave,

for you now have consolation in "going out" brave.

The LAST thing MMA needs is a "Politicain" trying to be a fighter.

The guy is a joke.

Clearly by his Voice his balls have yet to drop.

I would expect nothing other than for him to drop out "claiming" the "Ortiz Clause".

He's the only guy that I would place money on Kimbo slice to Whoop his soft lip service havin ****.

 

We can't wait to watch you bleed Jr.

Nice. but i want someone to beat silva...not because i hate him or anything' date=' hes awesome....i just want to see new champs emerge![/quote']

 

It seems like everyone's legacy is being tarnished by either losing matchups that honestly never should have been made or continuing to fight way past their prime. I would like for one fighter to go down in MMA history as untouchable until he chose to leave. I think Anderson Silva should be this guy. The only other possibility is GSP, but he hasn't done anything "amazing". Silva does very surreal things in his fight for which he will be remembered should he keep his record untarnished.

Thanks for the compliments everyone, but to Micloudon:

 

Nate Marquardt -> Sonnen outwrestled a wrestler with surprisingly less credentials than him

 

Yushin Okami -> He outwrestled another wrestler that hasn't used a submission since 2005 and whose only claim to fame is beating Anderson Silva by DQ.

 

Dan Miller -> I'm not sure why you pu thim on your list twice, but he's clearly another wrestler, but a stupid one (see Bisping fight).

 

Paulo Filho -> He beat a despressed crackhead fresh out of rehabilitation that didn't make weight or even want to fight, but needed the money for more crack.

 

Jason Miller -> He won by decision before either of them were even relevant. Miller still isn't.

 

Tim Credeur -> He isn't good or relevant. His record is just deceptive to MMA Noobs. He hasn't beaten ANYONE relevant, and only three guys that even have Wikipedia entries.

Well if you put it that way? :eek:

 

If you talk about those guys the way you just did, anyone would look bad.

 

Anderson Silva -> How could someone lose to a flying scissor heel hook? What an idiot, Chael could practice it and win.

 

Fedor -> He lost to a UFC reject in Werdum, he ain't even Champ at a 2nd tier org what a chump.

 

GSP -> He has zero stand up, he was easily caught by Serra who is even a BJJ guy.

 

BJ Penn -> He's not even relevant anymore, he couldn't defend his title against Edgar? Who the hell is this guy?

 

Shogun Rua -> He doesn't even have good leg kicks which are his specialty, he tried them on Machida and lost. He's washed up

 

They aren't good either, oh wait nobody is good. I guess they're all idiots until they get a 100-0 record i guess right?

 

Got anymore brain busters?

There is a fundamental difference between what I said and what you had attempted to say. Aside from the obvious fact that my post was "chalk full" of logic, it didn't attempt to discredit a fighter based on specific losses, but their lackluster career as a whole. So, for mentally challenged logicians such as yourself, I will make my point a little less complex so even a "ButterFinger" can understand.

 

"Chael Sonnen's wins are either against what the majority of MMA fans would consider unproven fighters OR one dimensional wrestlers like himself. This fact makes his accomplishments irrelevant when it comes to fighting a well-rounded opponent in Anderson Silva. Especially when his most notable win in Nate Marquardt was a three round battle seeing as Silva put him away in a single round."

 

...And before you try to use "people tried to use this logic with mir for Carwin v. Lesnar". They both finished Mir handily AND I wouldn't count on Anderson punching himself out in the first round :P

A very sad and beautiful poem to be read at Chael Sonnen's Eulogy following his August 7th fight with the GOAT #1P4P fighter in the world' date=' Anderson Silva.

 

 

A division one wrestler and a clever one too,

There was no telling what this man could do.

 

He tried pro wrestling but luck was not on his side,

so he joined MMA and began to whoop some backside.

 

In two thousand two Chael's father died,

So he vowed to be champion to instill some pride.

 

In his very first fight since, in two thousand three,

his achilles' heel would then come to be.

 

Poor Chael Sonnen try as he might

he could not manage to win a respectable fight.

 

With his weakness to submissions and lack of punching power too,

he knew that pure talent alone simply would not do.

 

His first stint in the UFC seemed pre-mat-ure,

for the mid level fighters made him look ama-te-ur.

 

It wasn't until his second go-round,

that an ounce of talent would come to be found.

 

Then in two thousand ten he met Dana White,

and promised him he'd capture fight of the night.

 

Pictures in his mind Chael surely drew,

He knew not what he just got himself into.

 

He then sealed his fate with ill words towards "the spider",

in hopes that he would gain plenty a forum **** rider.

 

But deep inside he truly knew,

that all of which he said; NONE he could do.

 

He felt very sick as the fight grew closer,

but he couldn't help loving the media exposure.

 

He hoped for an ending like Rocky Balboa,

or maybe an upset like Rua-Lyoto.

 

But I assure you and sadly so,

that what Chael thought isn't how things would go.

 

He entered the octagon with his signature smile,

but stared straight at death where he stood for a while.

 

He tried to hold the glazed look he had in his eyes,

as he told himself no one in MMA dies.

 

As the bell rung Chael knew the end was near,

Anderson Silva approached and confirmed this fear.

 

With a Muy Thai clinch and knees thrown high,

A trapped Sonnen let out the shrillest of cries.

 

He tried his best not to look bad for the fans,

unfortunately death came before the ambulance.

 

Rest in peace poor Sonnen right next to dad's grave,

for you now have consolation in "going out" brave.[/quote']

 

DUDE you need to be paid for this.
