Chael Sonnen spoke to the Wrestling Observer about the aftermath of his brawl with fellow Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 coach Wanderlei Silva and Silva's assistant Andre "Dida" Amade. Sonnen took Silva down quickly and was landing punches from top position when Dida jumped on his back and began punching his head.
"I felt like I was okay, but I had dialog with some guys, including one guy in production the next day and he told me the dialog wasn't coherent the next day. I told him a story that I thought was a pretty good story, but I wasn't getting much of a reaction. He said, `The problem is, you told me the story yesterday,'" Sonnen said.
One would think the NSAC would be interested in Sonnen's health before sanctioning the fight.
Nonetheless, Sonnen is preparing seriously for his UFC 175 bout with Silva.
"We're going to have to work hard. I can tease Wanderlei, but he's got tremendous heart, he hits extremely hard, especially early. He's a little wild, but if the shot lands, I'm not above being in trouble."
