Former MMA fighter and actor Paul Lazenby spoke with former UFC middleweight No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen to get his thoughts on Anderson Silva's first-round knockout win over Vitor Belfort at "UFC 126: Silva vs. Belfort" in Las Vegas. Silva retained his UFC middleweight championship with the win.

From PaulLazenby.com:

"Thank you, Anderson, for revealing yet another weakness for me to exploit in our rematch. Beating that poor punching bag doesn't impress Uncle Chael, guy. You tipped your hand like a chump poker player at a $5 table in Atlantic City. You may have beaten Vitor, but in the process, you LOST your edge. By beating that husk, you gave me the last page of your playbook. Revel in your time, [because] it ENDS the night you face me. I will mow you down like autumn wheat, AGAIN."

It's good to see Sonnen hasn't lost his sense of humor despite all the tough things that have happened to him in recent months. It's interesting he chose to comment at this time because he's been silent for so long now. Could this be a sign Sonnen is going to let it all loose once again? Time will tell.
