Chael Sonnen comments During a phone interview with FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight,"
"Well it was nice to see the real Anderson Silva come through. Ya know, the guy's a dirtbag, like I've told you for years. He made a lot of statements like, he's gonna break my teeth, he's gonna break my jaw and beak my skull. Ya know, I've fought 49 men. It's not as if I've never been to the orthodontist before, or my jaw reset or my scalp stapled shut in the ER. There's a couple things he didn't say he was gonna do, starting with beating me, starting with breaking my spirit and leaving with the victory, cuz he's not. Go ahead. Take the the teeth, take the jaw, take the staples in the head, whatever other crap he's gonna do. We're in the a fistfight in a steel cage on a Saturday night, anyway. I kind of expect it. I think he was one off from saying, 'I'm gonna give you a knuckle sandwich.' I'm kinda sitting there thinking, 'Well, duh. We're in the middle of a cage fight, dummy!'"
The question was asked if Silva had finally snapped and Sonnen had got into his head however the Middleweight number one contender believes Silva simply revealed himself for who he truly is.
"I don't care about being in his head. There was no gamesmanship here. It was very nice to finally see the real Anderson Silva come on through. He must have thought I'm Vitor Belfort. He wants to put on a mask and look down at me and have me wilt. That's not gonna happen, gentlemen. I'm a gangster from West Lynn, Oregon, and I've been picking a fight for years. He thinks I'm gonna be upset because I've found what I was looking for? There's a venue where we can figure this out on 7-7 at 7p.m., 10 in the east and only on pay-per-view, I will be in that Octagon. If he wants to meet me like a man, fine, but if he doesn't, I'm gonna spear-double, run him into the cage and put him on his ass and run my fist into his head for 25 minutes or until he gives up."
The two men will face off at UFC 148 on July 7th 2012 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. For all the latest MMA news and fight updates stay tuned to BJPENN.COM
