“Chael has good wrestling. The first fight, I broke my ribs, I fought with broken ribs. But that’s okay, I finished the fight and I win. But this time I am ready. I am training hard, this is a different fight. My opinion for Chael is that this guy does not respect nothing. This time in this sport is very important. The people watching the UFC, the people that watch Chael Sonnen talking, they are like ‘What? What is this sport? I don’t like this sport. This guy doesn’t respect nothing.’ I understand sometimes you need to promote the fight but, I don’t know. Chael talks about my people in Brazil, about my wife, about the older fighters. It’s his problem, it’s no good, it’s no good promotion, this is a sport. I love my sport. I love it and I respect the older people and the older fighters of the sport. This is a great time for the sport. But Chael maybe does not understand this, his problem is he talks too much. It is no good.”
Making the media rounds as of late, UFC Middleweight fighter Anderson Silva took to ESPN Radio in LA to discuss his pending matchup with number one contender Chael Sonnen.
Sonnen has made no secret of his desire to rematch Anderson Silva and in doing so has insulted an entire country. But has he bitten off more than he can chew? Will a healthy Anderson Silva shut up the “Oregon Gangster” once and for all?
The two are expected to meet in June of this year, although the bout has not been made official.
