    Did they translate this to Portuguese and then back to English? Babel fish working overtime. It's still decent insight from Chael. He's always pretty sharp about calling fights. Good interview none the less.

    All fighter interviews should go through this process.

    In related news, Chael can:

    • Beat Anderson Silva...twice
    • Run a real-estate business without being fradulent
    • Win an election

    Why does anyone still listen to this guy?

    Glad Chael gives Bisping the credit he deserves. I agree that if Bisping can survive the first round and grind a little, he can end it late, or get the UD for sure.

    1) Maury Povich
    2) Jerry Springer
    3) Real Houswives
    4) Various rapper + baby mamas reality shows
    5) Listen to the radio lately?

    The bottom line is that most people like hearing BS. I can't blame Chael for feeding it to them. If people insist upon being morons anyway, why not profit from it?

    Chael would UD Vitor without any trouble.

    I don't see Bisping surviving the early onslaught, though.

    He'll survive it and he'll give it back. Bisping is better than people give him credit for.

    perhaps you're the moron for thinking people take what chael says serious? it's not that people like hearing BS, it's that people like to be entertained and don't hang on every word a complete stranger says.

    you're so much more advanced than everyone.

    Yes if he doesn't get tagged with that left in the first round, he'll most likely win. I want Bisping to win, but Vitor worries me.

    So Chael uses MMAth pretty hard.

    Win...?

    Feck, nvm, that's Brazilian Chael. Somewhere, in the barrio, there's an olive skinned man who looks exactly like Chael but with a tiny pencil mustache that works as a moped mechanic.

    I don't think I'm a genius or any such thing. My point is that when you listen to Chael talk seriously and analyze fights, you can tell he's an intelligent man. But he knows that insightful comments about MMA don't sell. Instead, he plays the character of a clueless egomaniac, because that's what sells. If you think people don't take Chael's words seriously, read more threads. He has a large contingent of MMA fans that hang on his every word.

    The very idea that trash talk gets people more excited about fights is pretty stupid by itself, don't you think? Suppose Bisping started to trash talk Jones endlessly, to the point where Jones overreacted, and it fueled a longstanding hatred between them. Would that really make the idea of that fight any more exciting? Its still a ridiculous mismatch. On the other hand, would Anderson vs. Mousasi or Cain vs. Overeem be anything but mouth-watering, even with no trash talk to hype it? Plus, most of what Chael talks about (especially his funniest material) has nothing to do with hyping his own fights. Its just random commentary about other fighters, or even topics non MMA related.
