Sonnen Was Ready To Put Wanderlei And His ‘Scumbag’ Friends Down During Public Scuffle
“I don’t like street fighting. I don’t like to hear about it. It’s unprofessional and I’m not advocating any of this. However, I will not let a guy within arm’s distance. Wanderlei, if his finger he was pointing touched me, I would have put him down right there. I would have had no choice. I must defend myself. And he had three friends — these odds aren’t great for me. I want to take down as many of these scumbags as I can while I can. You’re going to show that you had to build up this courage to come and mutter at a guy, with three friends? I think that was the most confusing thing, for me. If I was doing the publicity stunt, I’m going to go, â€˜All right, guys, listen. That backfired. That thing goes in the fireplace.'”
During last week’s Mr. Olympia event, Chael Sonnen was confronted by Wanderlei Silva.
In a recent interview with sherdog.com, Chael P. Sonnen, discussed the incident and what may have happened if it escalated beyond just an exchange of words.
