    I don't know whether this Vitor fight is going to be in Brazil or not, either way, if Chael fights in Brazil, following this apparent change in Brazil's feelings towards him, does he get cheered?

    I suppose, given how nationalistic Brazilians are, we have to ask:

    a) Would he get cheered if he was fighting a non Brazilian

    b) Would he get cheered fighting a Brazilian (not at the expense of the other guy)

    If it's a Brazilian it would probably be mixed but if he fights another american yea he's getting cheered.

    I think he gets cheered by some of the crowd, he's definitely won them over.

    Wand got booed. Chael got applauses.

    To answer TS question, if he fights a non brazilian, he gets cheered. If he fights Wand he gets cheered. If he fights another brazilian he probably gets mild applause, but the crowd will be with the other guy.

    Brazalians rarely if ever cheer for Americans or anyone other than a Brazalian!

    They pretty much do everything american audiances do and get critisized for 10 times more but no one says one thing about it

    Yes, Chael Sonnen would be adored by the Brazilian fans. he would be thrown flowers, cheered louder then anyone in the history of the world
     
  16. They will build him a statue and kiss it's shiny ass each time they have an opportunity to see the Republican, Chael P. Sonnen, the gangster from America bless them with the privilege of witnessing him expose one of their frauds.

    He would get boo'd when he walked in and cheered afterwards like Bisping. It seems to me like the brazilians like fighters with attitude, even if its in a love to hate them kind off way

    Why do people think Brazilians suddenly like Chael? Did you not watch the TUF Brazil finale? He got the living shit booed out of him.

    Yeah, some of them have gone off Wandy, but they still fucking hate Chael
