Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen is one of the UFC's most famous and successful rivalries. How that makes you feel depends on how well Sonnen's shtick connects with you, but they did good business in large part because of Sonnen's over the top style of trash talk.
But now, removed from the heated lead-up to the fights, Silva tells Whoa! TV that Chael is a good guy. MMA Mania with the transcription:
"Chael talk too much, but is a good guy. He's not bad, he's a good guy. Chael is (always) in the media for fight. Chael fight for the belt against me two times. Chael fight Jon Jones, Chael fought "Shogun," Chael fight now. Chael is working for Dana White all the time. Dana don't need to talk nothing because Chael is working all the time. It's normal. Chael talk."
That's just one part of the sprawling, interesting interview you can watch above.
