Anderson Silva has been doing a whole lot of not agreeing to fight Chael Sonnen lately. Until a few days ago when he finally said them magic fightin’ words:
“I don’t like this guy,” Silva said. “This guy (wants to) fight me? Go to Brazil. No problem. Chael talks too much. I’m ready to fight Chael. But you have the chance – go to Brazil to fight me.”
“I accept Anderson. Brazil it is. Now then, about that meal,” wrote Sonnen through the social networking site.
Sonnen’s meal reference was to comments he made concerning Silva’s wife in a past interview where he mentioned going into the Silva house and having her cook him a steak. The comments upset Silva quite a bit, obviously Sonnen’s plan all along.
As you can see from the above picture taken at UFC 139, Sonnen isn’t exactly backing off from his controversial demands for a well cooked steak. Unfortunately, he may have to wait a while for that Brazil fight. Anderson Silva’s shoulder injury will apparently take until June to heal … right around the same time as a big card in Sao Paulo. What a nice coincidence! And because that’s so far away, there’s a very good chance Chael is gonna have to fight again before he locks up his revenge match with Silva. Possibly on the next Fox card, possibly against Mark Munoz.
