Quote of the Day: Chael Sonnen on Anderson Silva "He's a Grown Man With Saggy Pants, Pink T-shirts and Crooked Hats. Go Join a Gang"

New, comments

"Who cares who is better? I just want to know who is going to win? --- If one guys better you just have to set that aside, and find out how to win."

"Anderson Silva's doing anything he can do to get attention. He's doing it because he's been champion for years and no one cares who he is."

"People don’t care about him. He came out and said he’s going to go heavyweight, no one cared. So he comes out and says well ‘I’m going to go light heavyweight,’ no one cared. ‘Well I’m going to retire.’ Good! Beat it, this is back page news, no one cares about you anyway. ‘Well I’m not going to retire I’m going to stick around.’ Or do that. Again, it doesn’t really matter, you’re a nuisance. So who cares?"

"They go make the little action figures and the two little kids that bought them, are probably pretty upset, their parents probably thought it was Quinton Jackson when they bought it for them and the kids had a disappointing Christmas I would imagine. That's a big difference."

"At the end of the day he is trying to catch a headline like Brittany (Spears) did by shaving his head."

"I have beaten every champion of every company there's ever been. I have beat the Elite XC champion, I beat Strikeforce's champion. I beat the IFL champion. I beat the WEC champion, twice. I even beat the Bodog champion. I beat them all except for one guy who won't fight me."

"I became the number one contender in February and February 7 he sent out a press release as to why he shouldn't have to fight me. On August 7 he will fight me. I stand here of my own free will. He stands here because Uncle Dana is making him."

"People go "Well Chael, are you scared of him?" Well, sure, of course, we're going to fight, that's a scary thing. But it won't stop me from fighting."

"He’s a grown man with earrings. He’s a grown man with saggy pants, pink t-shirts and crooked hats. Go join a gang, don’t get in the UFC. If you want to hang out as a street thug, go do it. But if you stand in my way, I am going to run right through you."

"It is my moral obligation to beat this guy. Society's had enough of this guy."
