UFC 148: The UFC Releases Audio of Anderson Silva Blasting Chael Sonnen
This just in: Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen do not like each other very much.
While their two-year feud has been impossible for any fight fan to ignore, the rivalry primarily involved Chael P. Sonnen throwing caution to the wind with his insults...that is until the UFC 148 conference call Monday afternoon.
The reigning UFC middleweight champion absolutely went off on his American adversary, as anyone can plainly hear by the first clip provided by the UFC.
Silva, who spoke in Portuguese, had his words translated to English by his long-time manager, Ed Soares.
What I'm going to do inside the octagon is something that's going to change the image of the sport," he said. "I'm going to beat his ass like he's never been beaten before. I'm going to make sure that every one of his teeth are broken, his arms are broken, his legs are broken. He’s not going to be able to walk out of the octagon by himself. I can guarantee that.
The second clip didn't exactly have "The Spider" wishing Sonnen the best of luck, either.
"He doesn't deserve to be inside of the octagon. When the time comes and the time is right, I’m going to break his face and break every one of the teeth in his mouth," Silva said.
The top tier 185-pounders first clashed back in UFC 117 in Aug. 2010, where Sonnen infamously dominated the champion for four-and-a-half rounds before getting submitted by a triangle choke in the fifth and final round.
Nevertheless, the trash talk from Sonnen has never stopped, and it appears that Silva has finally had enough.
Will Silva prove the first fight was a fluke, or will Sonnen prove he is truly the greatest middleweight in the world?
The answer will come at the conclusion of UFC 148, which takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 7.
