Anderson Silva | Chael Sonnen Doesn’t Deserve This Rematch


“(What does Chael Sonnen represent for my career?) Nothing! He’s possessed by a demon. That’s the truth. He’s an athlete that failed the drug test, I fought him while injured, and he had problems with the American Justice system. He respects nothing and he didn’t respect our country. What does he represent? Nothing… I respect the opinions and the positions of the promoters of the fight and the owners of the event, but in my opinion he shouldn’t get the chance to fight me again. But that’s not something that I can decide. I will get ready for the fight just as I would with any other… He disrespected our idols that made history in the world of sports, such as Lance Armstrong. This guy is complicated, he’s got personal issues. The attention that the Brazilian media gives him, the attention that Palmeiras gave him, it’s very bad. If any Brazilian would be in the position that he finds himself in, if they would talk about the US and he does about Brazil, and the American idols, we wouldn’t even have the same opportunities of going in their country or talking to the American media. I think that Brazilians should be more patriotic, like the Americans.”

UFC middleweight Anderson Silva is no longer sitting on the sidelines and taking the brash trash talk from Chael Sonnen quietly.

As he tells it to Brazilian media outlet, SportTv, he believes Chael Sonnen is a disrespectful American possessed by a demon.

As this matchup gets closer the heat and talk will surely pick up, who ya got BJPENN.COM?
