Wanderlei Silva's reaction to Chael Sonnen submitting Shogun Rua is priceless

Wanderlei Silva's reaction to Chael Sonnen submitting Shogun Rua is priceless

Perhaps your reaction was similar to Wanderlei Silva's when Chael Sonnen slapped a nasty guillotine on Shogun Rua to earn a first-round victory over a guy many thought he would lose to. Two Pride FC veterans were finished in the first round at UFC on FOX Sports 1, and I'm sure if you look deeper into that statistics it reveals some intricate meaning about the Pride FC roster that you will probably ignore. Gone are the days of Pride FC competition steamrolling entire divisions in the UFC -- I mean even Anderson Silva got it in the end.

It's sad to see your heroes fall, especially when they fought aside you years ago. Team Chutebox members Wanderlei Silva and Shogun Rua gave us the infamous grappling photo which turned into the 'BJJ isn't gay if you don't make eye contact' meme. They've been buds for years, despite changing affiliations. So when Wanderlei Silva watches his old teammate get submitted by a guy that he vehemently dislikes -- frustrating isn't even the appropriate word to describe the emotion coursing through Wand's veins. Check out this live video reaction captured at a bar in Barrie, Ontario, Canada and props to @pegson for the find.

upset maybe?

You're next Wanderlei. Run away now whilst you still can boy.
+7 # Muthafucka Jones 2013-08-18 14:43
You know what they say it's better to be silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Wand doesn't run from fights. He's a gunslinger, he will go out swinging rather than run away.

And it's also worth mentioning for the record that Wanderlei has NEVER been submitted in his MMA career and he's gone up against better grapplers than Sonnen.

you're an idiot. hahaha. there nothing more to it. :lol:
+89 # UGH 2013-08-18 09:10
the reaction of Chael calling him 6'1 stacked high pile of crap would have been a lot more priceless.

wanderlei threw a bottle of alcohol at the television screen and mumbled something
+68 # Tango? 2013-08-18 09:22
His reaction is priceless? All he did was put his hands on his head.
+39 # bpm400 2013-08-18 09:28
where is the priceless reaction
+30 # layzboybc 2013-08-18 09:29
would have loved to see the call out reaction alot more
+31 # YO 2013-08-18 09:30
Shogun took care of Arona for him. It's now time to return the favor.
+16 # Kuroshimaru 2013-08-18 09:35
Wand: "oh my friend, my 100k"
+18 # Crap vid. 2013-08-18 09:40
Cut it before he calls out Wanderlei? F*cking morons.
+31 # Whaaaaat 2013-08-18 09:46
6 minutes I will never get back. I was expecting him to punch through a wall or something. Thanks ME...

One Brazilian down, one more to go.

USA, USA, USA!!!!!!

'priceless' in the title confused with 'worthless' methinks.

only thing worse than watching sonnen choke out shogun is doing it through a grainy as fuck recording in which silva places hands upon his head.

and whyyyyyyyyy reem, whyyyyyyy you no guard. if he fought at half pace, he'd have demolished browne by end of the round. he actually has a sliver of defence when he's fresh.
+8 # Stgutfree 2013-08-18 10:33
The only reason I would watch any fight in a bar would be if I knew Wanderlei would be there.

Too bad this guy miss the call out reaction.
+6 # Darth Gay-dar 2013-08-18 10:34
He was getting pretty touchy feely with that Mike Stratka look a like. Just sayin'
0 # Mando Man 2013-08-18 10:47
Yeah good one on getting the reaction, his reaction on Sonnen's poem after would have been interesting to see also.
0 # kuddlesthekid 2013-08-18 11:17
Ahhh why wouldn't you film the post fight?!?!?
+16 # AFrontKicktotheFace 2013-08-18 11:29
Jesus Wanderlei talks a fucking earful man. Your fucking friend is fighting, you might wanna cut back on the chit chat and pay attention to the fight.
+3 # Chris2Kills 2013-08-18 11:29
Looked like Wand was ignoring the fight for the most part. He still talked afterwards.

Chael is tenacious with testosterone therapy. I think Rua overlooked him and expected an actual fight instead of straight wrestling.

He anticipated punching Sonnen and got negligent leading to the choke.
+29 # Joe from Brampton 2013-08-18 12:10
What a stupid, oversensational ized title. What the fuck was so priceless about putting your hands on your head?

MY reaction was more priceless than this
+3 # spinningshit 2013-08-18 13:12
I wish I was the guy that Wand was all over, gotta be the best way to watch a fight.
+13 # BATTLE PENIS 2013-08-18 13:16
Apologise middleeasy... fucking apologise
+7 # BATTLE PENIS 2013-08-18 13:17
Apologise middleeasy....f ucking apologise

WOW Middleeasy, fucking abuse of Hyperbole.


You Absolutely Suck
+6 # BigEyeGuy 2013-08-18 13:57
I knew it, Wanderlei is one of those "Must put their hand on the shoulder" when they talk to you
+1 # Handicap Diareha 2013-08-18 14:41
Why are they watching that tiny TV when there is a giant one right next to it?
0 # jt33 2013-08-18 15:41
how cool would it be to watch the fights with wandy in a bar?

how scary would it be to watch the fights with wandy in a bar?

also damn at the upvotes in here..where did all these people come from...
+2 # Hooha 2013-08-18 16:25
firstly, yes that was not a video worthy of the headline - the man just put his hands on his head.

secondly: WHAT THE FUCK WAS WANDY DOING IN BARRIE ONTARIO? there is like, NOTHING there! It makes your average suburb look like Manhattan!

and last: i agree, watching him watch Chael call him out would have been priceless.

In fact, it was a normal reaction.

No way that's wanderlei. Wtf is he doing at a bar in Canada...w one guy watching on a shit little tv,
??? Fuck, the guy in vid doesn't even watch half the fight. Calling bs. Great fight though
+3 # MMAsshole 2013-08-18 19:43
That can't be wand. This guy looked jacked on roids
+3 # AuntieRazor 2013-08-18 19:55
It appeared that Wany was more interested in slipping a roofie into the drink of the guy he was caressing, than the fight on the TV. Well, the bright side to that scenario is he won't have to worry about paying child support after ass-raping another dude. Viva Brasil!!!
0 # NoHomo 2013-08-18 20:43
Wand does have a beautiful rape choke as displayed in the Keith Jardine fight
+1 # CoreySabien 2013-08-18 21:29
If you go to the youtube video it says:

"Wanderlie was awsome, he was so good to his fans. He was to busy taking pictures with everyone, so he missed chaels interview."
+2 # Hobbletop 2013-08-18 22:59
He looks so fucking scary/dangerous from the back...look at that fucking thick, battle-tested skull, those face shredding elbows and those arms that are capable of instantly windmilling you into unconsciousness ....shit i just came in my pants
0 # NordKing 2013-08-19 06:59
The person who should apologize is the camera man who didn't get Chael's speech, Wandys reaction to that may have been "priceless".
+1 # NOT 2013-08-19 11:23
Not Wanderlei --- no tattoos on either forearm.

Nice try.
