If, and according to Chael Sonnen that’s still a big if, Wanderlei Silva makes it to their fight later this year, “The American Gangster” has plans for his next fight.
Sonnen, in an interview with Gracie Magazine that you can view in the video below, believes he needs to face Belfort before calling it a career. Sonnen has called out Silva, Belfort and all other Brazilian fighters over the years with comments regarding the country and their way of life.
“Vitor and I’s paths will cross. There’s two guys that, for my career to be complete, I have to fight,” Sonnen said, of Silva and Belfort. “The UFC will tell you the same thing. Sooner or later, that will happen.”
Sonnen also made several bold proclamations, calling himself the “highest paid fighter the UFC’s had,” but that he’s “not in this for the money. I’m not in it for the fame. I do believe a person should just be themselves.”
Sonnen and Silva are the head coaches on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 that is currently airing on Fight Pass.
