You'd think that UFC Middleweight Wanderlei Silva would have his hands full. What with coaching the first season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil and preparing to face old rival Vitor Belfort at UFC 147 in June. But "The Axe Murderer" feels compelled to respond to Chael Sonnen's taunts and insults.
Sonnen came to Brazil briefly this week to announce that he and MW champ Anderson Silva won't be fighting at 147 but will instead take their scrap to Las Vegas on July 7th for UFC 148. Cheal, in his usual style, took care to insult virtually every Brazilian fighter in the UFC at the press conference.
He called Wanderlei "disabled" while he was at it.
Tatamegot Wanderlei to respond, that's after the jump...
"I have nothing to say to him. I won't give him that kinda audience. I don't care about what he says, I'm not interested. 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."
When asked if Sonnen would have the courage of calling him names in person, Wanderlei Silva didn't think twice before answering.
"Never. If he does that he'll leave with a red burning ear."
