Usually when we hear Chael Sonnen say he’s mad it seems like a promo. This is different. The damage that Anthony Smith took from Glover Teixeira at last night’s Fight Night was very hard to watch. It’s great that people are praising his toughness and grit but it was so bad that he lost teeth. His face was battered and he was thoroughly exhausted well before the referee finally stepped in to save him in the fifth round.
