Sonnen On Silva Fight | I Don’t Even Have A Bout Agreement For That Fight Yet
“Couple of things: First off, I don’t even know if I have that fight. I’m telling people I do. I’m reading about it in the media. I don’t have an agreement for that bout. And, second off, I’m gonna start ]training camp] in April. So, we haven’t even begun yet.”
“Listen, here’s the deal with Anderson. My beef isn’t so much with him, it’s with everybody else. I get real sick and tired of seeing guys in the back asking him for his autograph with him, and then when they get on camera themselves, they portray themselves like they’re tough guys. If you put a microphone in somebody’s face, and he calls out anybody other than the champion, he might as well just turn in his pink slip. If you’re not here to be the best, get to the end of the line. You don’t belong. I’m not sidestepping this guy or anybody else. You know, any time someone publicly slaps Dana White in the face, publicly spits on Lorenzo Ferttita, I don’t understand that. When Anderson comes out and he publicly says, ‘I disagree with you’ to the decision makers, the guys who put the process in place, who say, ‘Here’s how we’re gonna determine a number one contender,’ tells these guys he’s got a better idea of their business than they do, I don’t really understand that. So, that’s not really a slight at me when Anderson says that, but he is telling his bosses that he disagrees with them.”
If you missed it, Chael Sonnen was a guest on last night’s SPIKE TV “MMA Uncensored” and he discussed a lot of topics.
The interviewer got Chael on the subject of Anderson Silva and his thoughts surrounding their upcoming fight. Sonnen also used the opportunity to reply to Silva’s claims that the UFC bosses should go against each other as well as Anderson’s statement that Chael doesn’t deserve the rematch.
