Chael Sonnen finds his muse in Wanderlei Silva's t-shirt

USA TODAY Sports

A photo of Wanderlei Silva in a t-shirt inspires Chael Sonnen to unleash a torrent of twitter poetry.

Sometimes all it takes is a photograph.

Usually that photograph is not of a mixed martial artist standing in a gym wearing hand wraps and pointing to the words on his T-shirt. But hey, who can question inspiration when it hits?

The mentioned photograph is of Wanderlei Silva. The man who has found inspiration in that photograph is Chael Sonnen.

Sonnen is scheduled to face Rashad Evans in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC 167 on November 16. He has mentioned that Silva is proving to be a distraction leading up to that Evans fight.
