James Brown made a career by telling an entire planet to ‘get down’ whenever possible. Chael Sonnen made his career from having the ability to take down any middleweight on this planet. I’m sure I could spend my entire day drawing comparisons from Chael Sonnen and James Brown. Chael is notorious for giving the most entertaining interviews in the MMA industry — and James Brown did this interview on local television. The fact is, if aliens visited this planet and our government had to provide them with the single greatest performance humanity has ever witnessed, they would undeniably show them this video of James Brown on stage in Zaire, Africa from 1974. That’s as good as it gets, Chael Sonnen can only aspire to be a close second.
We all witnessed Chael Sonnen take down The Spider at will during UFC 117 only for Anderson to submit Chael off his back in the fifth round with an illustrious triangle. Now it appears Anderson Silva added some points to his takedown defense skill tree, and this video just may prove it. [Source]
