He bores the hell out of me, and he's a **** human-being.
I don't think that statement (in bold) is accurate at all.
After having discussed this particular topic with JB indepth
on several occasions, I think it's fair to say (especially in that last fight in Abu Dhabi) that you had two fighters wanting the other one to engage the way they wanted
the fight to go which happened to be in polar opposite directions. Demian Maia repeatedly attempted takedowns, granted with little success, but still... It wasn't Maia's obligation to take Anderson's bait. You didn't see Anderson jumping in Maia's guard, did you?

You gotta give Sonnen that much, he will deliver some good ones from time to time...
Did you (or anybody else) notice, during one of Chael's close-ups when he was answering a ? (kind of near the end), Thiago, his eyes, both of them were blinking repeatedly at the same time? It was very
strange, and weird.
