ALDO: ANDERSON HAS TO HUMILIATE SONNEN

FEBRUARY 22ND 2012 Approaching a long-awaited revenge match against Anderson Silva, Chael Sonnen is likely to get another chance to prove he can fight as well as he provokes. Despite the American thinking he is the real middleweight champion, featherweight champion Jose Aldo doubts his countryman Anderson will lose his belt if the rematch confrontation happens in Brazil this June, as is expected. For the featherweight champion, Silva has to go full force at his antagonist Sonnen. “The chance for Sonnen to win is zero. If I were Anderson I would look to humiliate him so much here in Brazil, make him never think of stepping into the ring anymore,” he told Sportv.com. Aldo also said the Brazilian fans should not pay attention to Sonnen’s various utterances about them and their country. He also ridiculed Sonnen’s recent affiliation with the Palmeiras soccer team, which counts itself a bitter rival of the Corinthians team which sponsors Anderson. “He doesn't even know what is the team. He doesn't know anything about Palmeiras history. No Brazilian can give any moral credence to him. I doubt Palmeiras will do it,” said the featherweight Scarface, who also claimed that if it was necessary, he would face Sonnen himself. “I face him of course. I will fight anyone - except other Brazilians, and very tall guys,” he laughed.

NOGUEIRA: JUDGES BIASED AGAINST BRAZILIANS

FEBRUARY 23RD 2012 Rodrigo Nogueira thinks his fellow Brazilians face an uphill battle when fighting in the US. The former Pride FC champion told Brazilian news portal OGlobo that the decision in close fights always, in his opinion, goes against the Brazilians. “Americans have a rivalry with Brazilians, that is obvious. And why is that? It’s because the UFC has three hundred fighters under contract, and from those three hundred fighters we are fifty. The Brazilians are fifty, and we have more belts than they do. “So from three hundred we are fifty, and with those fifty we get there and take care of business. They win (more) because they have more (people), they have a bigger infrastructure inside their gyms, they have support for the sport since they’re kids. But the sport is growing in Brazil and I believe that... “They look at us with (malicious) eyes, let’s say it like that. If you’re going to fight an American in the US you have to win the fight with emphasis because otherwise… You can’t win it by a thin margin.”

Cesar Gracie Says Nick Diaz Clearly Beat Carlos Condit At UFC 143, Disgusted With Judges

“No I don’t obviously [think Condit won], he clearly won that fight. I’ve been there when Nicks lost fights and have told him you kind of let that one go… But this fight it was very clear. I was kind of shocked when I was in the cage, we were pretty much all in disbelief especially when the judges scores where read… If you repeat that first round five times you’re still gonna lose because every judge had Nick losing that first round, so there was nothing we could have done… In my opinion I don’t think the judges like Nick. He talks in the ring, Carlos was running in the ring and at one point Nick slapped him and told him to stop running. Nick thought it was going to be a dog fight… I don’t know what the judges where looking at. They don’t like Nick in Vegas, they never award him a decision there except the BJ fight and we almost had to kill BJ to get that. I don’t think we can get a fair fight, I don’t think we can get fair judging in that state at all… I don’t know how they scored it that way I truly don’t. … If Nick would have been knocked out by Carlos I would have felt better about it than I do right now” Cesar Gracie just moments ago went on MMAFighting.com’s “The MMA Hour” to discuss his disgust for last weekend’s UFC 143 main event between Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit. The MMA world is still torn in half in regards to who actually won the fight but in the end, the judges, not the fans, coaches or fighters make the final call.
