Chael Sonnen Hits Back at "Bigfoot" Antonio Silva on Twitter

Following Antonio Silva's recent taunt aimed at Chael Sonnen on Twitter, Sonnen has taken the time to reply to Silva with a taunt of his own.

Earlier this week, Sonnen tweeted that he would be hosting an MMA seminar in the near future:

I will be doing a seminar at Team Quest in Redding, Ca. on Sept 11th at 9:30am. All are welcome. Join in, or just watch.

Silva, who has been a victim of Sonnen's words in the past, replied:

@sonnench you will show how to get out of a triangle?

In this tweet, Silva was referring to Sonnen's less-than-stellar submission defense; Sonnen has lost eight fights by submission and four of those have come by a triangle choke. Most recently, he tapped out to a triangle choke against Anderson Silva at UFC 117, late in the fifth round.

Following this loss, Sonnen was the instigator of a war of words against Anderson Silva and his training camp, Black House MMA/Team Nogueira, a camp which Antonio Silva had recently become a member of. 

Soon after, Sonnen was ready with a comeback:

@bigfootsilva, I want to tell you a joke so funny it will make your head grow. It goes like this..Oh wait, I see you have already heard it.

Will Silva have a retort for Chael Sonnen? Or will Sonnen have the last word?
