With Chael Sonnen defeating Michael Bisping at UFC on Fox 2, it set up a rematch between Sonnen and UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva. Silva beat Sonnen with a literal last minute submission in their first meeting after Sonnen had dominated the fight.

Since, it has been non-stop trash talk about Silva by Sonnen. Silva talked about the fight on UFC Tonight. Via MMA Fighting:

Silva told Ariel Helwani on Fuel TV's UFC Tonight that he believes Sonnen would be wise to keep his mouth shut and get to work on training.

"Chael talks too much," Silva said. "Chael needs to train. No more talk, train. Going to Brazil? Big problem."

Silva gave the interview in English, perhaps another sign that he's hoping to match Sonnen's talk before matching up with him inside the Octagon. But Silva also said that Sonnen isn't going to get under his skin.

"I don't care about Chael Sonnen," Silva said.
