Hard-hitting legend Wanderlei Silva is tired of hearing fellow UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen spout venom in his direction from afar. Sonnen, who is as known for his trash-talking and self-promotion as he is for his accomplishments inside the ring, has thrown a number of insults in Silva’s direction associated with his nationality (Brazilian) and knockout losses.
However, from the sound of it, Sonnen better start looking over his shoulder at UFC gatherings if he plans to keep Silva in his smack-spouting sights.
“If he wants to say those things looking me in the eye, come here. But that way, saying things when we’re distant, he’s an ass face. Only pussies say things at your back,” said Silva in an interview with TATAME where he also warned Sonnen that saying things to his face could prove costly. “If he does that he’ll leave with a red burning ear.”
Before the possibility of laying hands on Sonnen, “The Axe Murderer” will face Vitor Belfort in June at UFC 147 to settle their own personal rivalry as well as a recent stint as coaches on TUF Brasil. Meanwhile, Sonnen himself is busy, fighting Anderson Silva for the middleweight title at UFC 148.
