This is the biggest fight ever imo. 2 years in the making after an epic first fight and mountains of trash talk from Chael. The GOAT and his arch nemisis settling the score once and for all. It's the biggest rivalry ever.
I agree with Fossilkid, GSP/BJ 2 superfight is the only one that comes close.
Honestly it doesn't really crack my top 10. Obviously it's a huge fight, but I just don't feel like it has a lot of potential to be a great fight.
Either Chael will either get a UD from takedowns and beating Silva up, or Silva will find a way to get a finish. The finish might be spectacular, but thats not the same thing as a crazy back and forth super exciting fight.
For example, I was much more excited for Hendo vs Shogun than this fight.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm still pretty amped to see it.
I know what you're saying and kinda agree that the actual fight may not be that great, but it's what's at stake that matters more imo.
I see tons of non-main event fights, or even prelim fights, where I think "wow, that's gonna be an awesome fight" but I just can't get as hyped up when it's two guys I don't know so well, or don't care about too much, or there's nothing really at stake in the fight. Also I've come to realise that "FOTN potential" often doesn't really mean anything. All too often the best fights come from unexpected places, and the ones we think will be awesome turn into snooze-fests.
El Diablo, El Diablo, little miss Diablo
You root for a coward not a hero like I do.
Dress fancy to a conference, and kiss a man on his cheek
Only to have his legs wobble when Chael punches that beak
Two years of running, faking injuries and such
The pressure from the wrestler will just be too much
Single leg single leg, double after double
Problema for Anderson, that's Brazilian for trouble
As the story goes, real simple and sweet
There's a man from the mud, And a man from the streets
One dances and prances, the other carries his nation
After the results are read Saturday enjoy your week of vacation
"My name is Chael Sonnen(R), and I approve this message.
but it was on his tv show so idk if you can get it on the radio
didn't end up being that great tbh, posted that at start
Ah lol I just typed Dan Lebetard into Google and streamed the first thing I could find. Think it was an off-air radio station that was just blasting out ads. At least I know where to go now if I find myself in the US and in over $10k worth of debt, or needing life insurance.
