    Chael Sonnen says GSP superior athlete to Anderson 

    Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva is widely regarded as the greatest fighter in the history of Mixed Martial Arts and the top pound for pound fighter, but according to his one time nemesis, the Brazilian is not as good as the UFC has people believe.

    Chael Sonnen, who suffered two consecutive defeats at the hands of the Brazilian believes former UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre is a more complete fighter as well as the better athlete when compared to The Spider.

    And the American Gangster says he talks from experience when he makes the comparison and as a result, he is the best person to make a judgement.

    Sonnen was speaking to Nate Diaz in a talk show as the UFC builds up to the Nick Diaz v/s Anderson Silva fight at UFC 183 in January, 2015 where he said that he has fought with Anderson Silva twice and he has worked with Rush as well and he had a much tougher time against the Canadian than the Brazilian.

    Chael Sonnen said that was his own experience, adding that he knows style and swagger do make their way into the comparison but in terms of pure athleticism and talent, Rush was far superior compared to Anderson.

    He told Nate Diaz that he believes his brother has been in fights that have been a lot tougher and he doesn’t think Nick Diaz will realize that a few minutes into the fight. But Chael Sonnen reiterated again that Silva is very good and his comments are in, no way, meant to be derogatory towards him, but he is just not as good as the UFC has people believe.

    The American said that Nick Diaz has a good chance of beating Anderson especially now that he is coming back from injury and is not in prime condition.

    White says GSP, Anderson Silva absence wonโ€™t hurt UFC 

    Those avid fans of Mixed Martial Arts, especially the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC know its president Dana White to be a man of passion.

    While there have been debates over his comments in the past, such as when he said that the UFC was bigger than the NFL or his opinion of the best Pound for Pound fighter in the world, he is a man known to never back off from his stance.

    And recently, he mentioned that he is not at all worried despite the recent loss of star power from the UFC with the sabbatical undertaken by Georges St. Pierre and the injury to Anderson Silva. Both will not be seen inside the UFC Octagon for quite some time but White believes the UFC is in a position to make do without two of its biggest pay-per-view cash cows.

    White stated that until recently, when the legendary Brazilian Vitor Belfort was kicked right in the face by Anderson Silva, nobody cared about him. And all of a sudden he became a huge star and White mentioned that people were starting to ask him what he would do when he left.

    But according to White, the window of opportunity in sport is very little, adding that there will always be someone there to take up a place when it is vacant and another one after that.

    He also thinks people will change their stance again if Chris Weidman manages to beat Vitor Belfort to retain the UFC Middleweight Championship and he is even sure that there will be comparisons with Anderson Silva as well.

    The UFC boss also said fighters like Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture and Matt Hughes helped elevate the status of the UFC but they have all left and the UFC has survived and it will survive now too.

    Glover admits overconfidence almost cost him 

    Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Light Heavyweight Championship contender Glover Teixeira earned his shot at the gold belt held by Brazilian compatriot Jon Jones beating Ryan Bader via technical knockout in the first round of their match at UFC Fight Night 28 last month but he is the first to admit that he came extremely close to letting that opportunity slip between his fingers.

    Before he landed the deadly combination that floored Bader and earned him the win, the Brazilian was actually rocked on the feet, something, he says never even saw coming. And speaking to a media outlet, he stated that it was a lesson that he will keep in his memory forever. He mentioned that he was really confident ahead of the fight, maybe a bit complacent even.

    MacDonald wanted Condit but got BJ Penn 

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC and its president Dana White wanted The Prodigy BJ Penn to come out of his retirement so badly that over the past two months, they had been cajoling the former UFC Welterweight fighter with two huge draws; first with the winner of The Ultimate Fighter Josh Koscheck and then again with Rory MacDonald, the up and coming 22 year old fighting sensation from Canada in an attempt to goad the former two division champion to end his premature retirement from the industry.

    And although the first of their attempts fell on deaf ears, Penn has decided to end his retirement and come back to the octagon to fight against Rory MacDonald at UFC 152, slated to be held at Toronto, Canada. Although the young UFC Welterweight fighter acquiesced to the requests of the UFC hierarchy, he wanted to fight against Carlos Condit, the only man who has managed to blemish his near perfect record in the company by inflicting on him his first loss in the UFC.

    And the 22 year old with a 3-0 record since the knockout victory of Condit over him made no secret that he wanted to fight him again but did say that the chances were bleak as the interim UFC Welterweight Champion busy at the moment when the UFC approached him with a proposal to fight BJ Penn, which he gleefully accepted.

    Penn has not stepped inside the UFC octagon since he was defeated by Nick Diaz back in 2011, but The Prodigy will be looking for victory against Ares and sending out a signal to Georges St Pierre, the poster boy of Tri-Star. And MacDonald, too, knows that a victory against BJ Penn will also land him a match with the man who has been his conqueror once as well.

    MMA Pound-for-Pound Fighters by UFC 

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S based MMA promotion. In 2009 They published a MMA Pound for Pound list. Today i am going to share that best MMA Pound for Pound fighters list with you. there are many few webs which published that list in 2009. thats why I decided to share with you guys the Best MMA Pound for Pound Fighters of 2009 by UFC

    10 – Brock Lesnar
    It’s hard to include Lesnar in the pound-for-pound discussion given his hulking physical dimensions, but something tells me that the reigning Heavyweight Champion would be a formidable lightweight contender if Rick Moranis happened to accidently hit him with the shrink ray.

    9 – Michael Bisping
    Bisping is only 29 and just coming into his prime as a fighter. His only loss in the UFC came via split decision to the undefeated “Sugar” Rashad Evans, and he’s currently on a three-fight win streak.

    8 – Matt Hughes
    Hughes is another fighter who’s past his prime, but still a legitimate threat to anybody he gets into the Octagon with. Hughes still has the strength and experience to get it done.

    7 – Chuck Liddell
    Liddell’s best years may be behind him now, but that doesn’t mean he’s through. “The Ice Man” is still one of the best punchers in the business and he’s still got the ability to end fights quickly and in spectacular fashion.

    6 – Wanderlei Silva
    Although “The Axe Murderer” has lost two of his last three fights, he remains one of the most dangerous strikers in the sport and a force to be reckoned with in the Light Heavyweight division. sh” will get a shot at “Spider” Silva for the Middleweight Championship.

    5 – Forrest Griffin
    If guts were gold Griffin would be one of the wealthiest men in the world. The reigning Light Heavyweight Champion seems to win on sheer force of will some nights.

    4 – Kenny Florian
    “KenFlo” absolutely dismantled Joe Stevenson at UFC 91, emerging as the No. 1 contender to Penn’s Lightweight title. However, he’ll have to wait until the dust settles on the Penn-St. Pierre fight at UFC 94 for his title shot.

    3 – Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
    Jackson may no longer wear the gold, but his devastating hands and raw power remain as formidable as ever.

    2 – B.J. Penn
    Penn has matured as a fighter over the past two years, blossoming into one of the very best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. His consecutive wins over Jens Pulver, Joe Stevenson and Sean Sherk speak for themselves.

    1 – Anderson Silva
    Silva has completely dominated the Middleweight division since coming to UFC in 2006, showing that he’s truly a complete fighter and, pound-for-pound, the best in the UFC today.
