GSP on Chael Sonnen: “He wanted to get in Anderson Silva’s head and he did it”

UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre gives his thoughts on the reasoning behind middleweight number one contender, Chael Sonnen’s antics ahead of his UFC 148 title bout with Anderson Silva, explaining he wanted to get in the head of the Brazilian and he accomplished exactly that.

GSP, speaking via Sportsnet, said:

“He wants to get into Anderson Silva’s head and he did it. That’s what he wants, because when you fight with emotion, you don’t fight smart. The crowd, they love it. (Silva) he’s going to go crazy but he can make a mistake if you do that. It’s a big mistake. You have to go back to the reason he’s a champion. And the reason he’s a champion is because he fights smart, he’s skilled. More skilled than the other guys … He brings the fight where he is the best. He doesn’t go crazy. That’s what Chael Sonnen wants from him.”
