    How did Chael know Wand was going to back out of the fight? All along he was saying that Wanderlei would back out of the fight...

    This really hurts Wanderlei's reputation... He is no longer the Axe Murderer that people feared.

    Chael talks like this most of the time though its more a broken watch being right then anything else.

    I first thought he knew wand was still injured and was basically forcing him to fight injured to not look like a coward and give chael the advantage.

    He made wand look like a punk on the whow and knew if he could do it there he could do it in the octagon. Wand knew too so he claimed that weak ass takedown hurt his back.

    well wand had already backed out in one way or another three previous times. chael was just talking smack and voila! fourth time!

    chael didn't know shit. he was just fucking with wand.

    Because it was clear Wanderlei wanted no part of him.

    Wow. Weaksauce.

    As far as the new matchup goes, this matchup is now a billion times harder for Sonnen. I figured he beats Wand very easily. Vitor....not so much.

    Chael reads folks....kinda like a good DI...U study your men, U read they're character...U know instinctively after awhile how they will react under stress, under combat....he's good at it...Every bullshitter, every salesman, every politician is good at it, they have to be, to be successful..

    He didn't. He talked shit like always and for once it turned out correct. Remember he said Anderson would pull out and not fight him. Anderson would give up the belt etc? Yeah. He talks so much crap. It's bound to happen for him once in a while.

    He could probably tell by the way Wand was acting. Not that hard to read people especially when you're around them a lot when they were doing TUF.

    I think Chael must have known that wand didn't sign the contract to fight. That almost has to be the only way. Unless a Brazilian told shael

    The bookers told him. It was all in the script because UFC is fake and staged, like PRIDE. Obviously.

    because he couldn't handle the thought of losing to him after talking all his shit. the funny thing is, what he just did is far worse than losing to chael, far, far worse.
