Wanderlei Silva wants to 'suck Chael Sonnen's blood' and 'hurt him, not fight him'

A couple weeks ago, Sonnen told UFC Tonight that he wanted to finally resolve his conflict with Silva in the Octagon. Two days ago, Wandy gave his response.

At UFC 159, Chael Sonnen got his chance to take home the Light Heavyweight title from Jon Jones. As most expected, Sonnen came up very short and was finished within the first round. A few days later, he appeared on UFC Tonight to talk about what he wanted to do next. Chael quickly dismissed the idea of retiring from MMA and when asked who he wanted to fight next he called out Wanderlei Silva.

On the most recent episode of UFC Tonight, Ariel Helwani related Wandy's response to Chael's challenge:

Jon Jones and Anderson Silva have been too nice to Chael. I want to suck his blood. I want to smell it. Not just fight - I want to hurt him. Chael is a joke, man. He's going to be second forever. He's never going to be first.

Of course, with Sonnen on set, he had an immediate response for Silva:

I think the real breaking news there is that Wanderlei Silva put together a coherent sentence that somebody understood. But I can assure you, Wanderlei, I will not be signing a contract for you to suck on any part of me. I suggest you go to a bath and find yourself.

Helwani confirmed that the UFC has not yet brought up the fight to Wanderlei, although they have hinted that the fight could headline UFC On FS1 1. With the history behind Silva and Sonnen's rivalry, it would be a very sellable fight for the UFC and there's no doubt Chael would be willing to provide soundbytes throughout the lead up.
