Линчуването на Chael Sonnen в Рио.

Recommended Posts

Бразилски фенове са направили следната facebook страница, в която призовават "Американският Гангстер" Chael Sonnen да бъде линчуван, когато пристигне в Rio за event-а на UFC:


It was bound to catch up with him. Chael Sonnen has been spouting off about Brazil for the past year and it seems that finally MMA fans have had enough. Over 2500 Brazilian fans have "RSVP'd" to a Facebook event called "Linchamento do Chael Sonnen" (English: Lynching of Chael Sonnen). The page has the following description:

"Guys, everyone is aware of what this insect has been spewing about Brazil, the fighters, of the people of this country, of our culture. I think we should give him a 'warm welcome' when he comes to attend UFC Rio on the 27th, since Brazilians carries the fame of being sympathetic, hospitable, warm people, how about a big party for our friend Chael Sonnen?"

Now, obviously most people are taking this in jest. They aren't likely to actually lynch Chael Sonne when he arrives in Rio. However, there are those that likely do feel that Chael's words have crossed a line to being offensive in nature. He's made statements that some see as xenophobic regarding not just Anderson Silva and the Nogueira's, but also about the nation as a whole. To his credit though, his comments have helped some Brazilian fighters such as Demian Maia receive more exposure in their home country.

While Brazil is ramping up their infrastructure and security for the 2016 Olympic games, in the current state, they still have many social issues for the UFC to deal with. There are rumors of extensive identity theft and counterfeiting of tickets for this event. While I don't believe fighter safety is an issue, there could potentially be issues with the populace that will be turned away at the door. Hopefully this event is just a joke and that no one crosses the line into actually forming a lynch mob.

UPDATE: It seems this story is picking up steam not just in the US but also Brazil. There are many who are concerned that this page may influence some individuals into actually attacking Chael Sonnen should he be in Brazil. News outlet SRZD reached out to the creators of the page who had the following to say:

"My master always teaches us that, the use of fighting is only for good things, I am of peace, I hate violence, I always try to resolve my issues in conversations" says Raphael, who created the page.

When asked if they didn’t fear it being misinterpreted, he replied: "That was my biggest fear, I even mentioned to Rafael (the other guy who had the idea for the page) jokingly that we could be sued, people could take it seriously and all. That’s why we put a lot of small jokes in the text, we didn’t put anything serious so that we wouldn’t be promoting violence"

It should also be noted that it is very likely that Sonnen won't be able to attend the fights because of his probation following his Federal money laundering case. In the unlikely event that he actually is able to leave the country, I would say it is in his best interest for him to travel with security during his time in Brazil.

Аве, Chael какво пак ги филмира. :D

Общоизвестна тайна е, че е на пробация, заради прането на пари, и няма право да напуска страната.

Yesterday I posted about a Facebook event calling for the "Lynching of Chael Sonnen" in Rio. While the event was made as a joke by the creators, it is very much possible that some of those "attending" were looking forward to causing bodily harm to the outspoken middleweight. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on your point of view, they won't be getting the chance.

Yushin Okami's trainer's spoke with SPORTV and according to them, Chael Sonnen will NOT be in Okami's corner when he faces Anderson Silva for the middleweight belt. While there aren't any direct comments from trainers, the article states:

If the threat of lynching has changed the mind of Chael Sonnen, it is not known. The fact is that the American will no longer be coming to Rio according to the coaches of Japan's Yushin Okami, who arrived on Saturday. Sonnen will not be in the country for the event.

Disliked by most Brazilian fighters like Anderson Silva, Wanderlei Silva, Lyoto Machida and the Nogueira brothers, Sonnen said in several interviews that he would come to Brazil for UFC 134. Yushin Okami, his teammate, will face Anderson in the main event of the night and Sonnen was expected in his corner. The American even said during the week he would come to Rio on Friday.

However, the coaches of Team Quest denied that the Sonnen has or will come to Brazil. According to a post by the official UFC Brazil twitter, Sonnen was just "trolling" and will not be in Rio for the fight. Sonnen has a fight scheduled for Oct. 8 at UFC 136 against Brian Stann, and will be focused on training for the occasion.

Well that pretty much answers the $64,000 question. Looks like Chael Sonnen has trolled everyone into believing he was going to actually be crazy enough to show up in Brazil. While it is wrong to speculate on why, it is known that he is still on probation from his Federal money laundering case. Those on probation are unable to leave the country, though I doubt that Sonnen is a flight risk.

Chael Sonnen си е явление в ММА-я. Силен talker и добри умения в октагона. Не е като само да говори и да го бие всеки..И във всеки trash talk, който той прави, виждам доста истини. Явно бразилците ги боли много щом му обръщат внимание. Стига с тия неща за ребра и т.н.

^ Кой ти го каза това, neshev?

Американската конституция.

TUALATIN, Ore. – Chael Sonnen wanted to be in Yushin Okami's corner for UFC 134, and he still has a plane ticket to Rio de Janeiro.

It's Brazil that doesn't want him there.

Sonnen said a major sponsor of Okami's requested he not attend the pay-per-view event, which takes place Saturday at Rio's HSBC Arena.


Chael Sonnen няма да е в Бразилия. Това за спонсорите е пълна простотия. Просто има забрана да прекосява границата. Както се вижда през ден си сменя позицията.
