Wanderlei Silva made a WWE-like promo calling out Chael Sonnen, and you really need to watch it

Let's not forget this isn't the first video threat Wanderlei Silva made to Chael Sonnen. The first was actually three years ago in the back of a car when Wand basically confronted Chael regarding everything he said negatively about Brazil. It could have gone down in that backseat, but instead both fighters have used every social media outlet to make personal attacks instead of actually settling their beef inside the Octagon.

While both fighters still aren't scheduled to tangle, Wanderlei Silva decided he would cut an epic WWE-like promo in which he calls out Chael Sonnen for five minutes. Speaking of minutes, a main event fight doesn't last 30 minutes, Wand. It's actually 25, but we're defintely not telling him that. Props to AFrontKicktotheFace for the +100 news tip.

The disrespect of Wand is mind blowing. Who the fuck is Cheal Sonnen? Wand was cleaning peoples clocks on the big stage when cheal was still oil checking wrestlers in college.
Fuck cheal sonnen.
I hope we get this fight so we can see the furry of Wand once again.
...And if this fight does happen... RIP Cheal Sonnen.

Let me say this again: 'You never go full retard.'

If it wasn't for the heavy metal music playing, I wouldn't have been able to tell if Wanderlei was serious or not.
+13 # BurntToast 2013-08-23 18:08
It's hard hitting jabs like 'buttface' that show Wanderlei really does deserve some of that PPV cut
+2 # Joe O. 2013-08-24 09:37
Well, maybe something got lost in translation. Like Kalash said, maybe he was calling him assface but it got translated to buttface.
0 # BurntToast 2013-08-24 15:12
Most likely. Thems just jokes though. Still assface is pretty lame.

Wanderlei deserves some PPV for what he's accomplished in MMA but on the other hand I'm not sure how much he actually moves the needle on a PPV these days and so doesn't necessarily deserve it. Maybe there'll be a compromise.

I've got Sonnen by decision if this does go down eventually.

Sonnen is going to smother Wandy.

PLEASE let this fight happen

you know you are getting long winded when you start calling someone a "butt face."
+5 # Kalash 2013-08-23 20:49
People make a big deal out of this childishly sounding "buttface".

But it's actually a very common, not that childish abusive word in Spanish/Portugu ese (I don't know how it sounds in Portuguese, but Spanish version is "caraculo" (cara = face, culo = ass).

I also lean towards version that it was more of marketing stun than real Wandy talking, but the "buttface" is getting too much attention for no reason.
-1 # han solo 2013-08-24 09:15
buttface is the translation of chicken in portuguese, like that expression chicken out, nothing more than that (just to sound a little more clever)

How do you say "Ya dun goofed?" in Portuguese?

Some people loved the Ultimate Warrior growing up, with his long brilliant speeches,electr ifying personal, then one day realized he was just a retarded drunken fool when all the lights and cameras was off. Im just saying.

I don't care what you guys say, that shit was fucking awesome.

EDIT: I should read the articles first..
+3 # jt33 2013-08-23 20:29
all of a sudden i kinda want to see this fight..part of me knows that chael comes out for the immediate takedown but the other part wants to see wand swing for the fences...dana needs to give wand his ppv points and add this to the next brazil card.
-1 # spinningshit 2013-08-23 20:39
maybe if that was half as long it would've been ok, MAYBE
-1 # Stgutfree 2013-08-23 20:57
I love Wandy but this should have come out on Tuesday at the latest. Why the delay? I feel like he's trying to save face and doesn't really want this fight.

the lighting is a lil much wand

What a fucking Brazilian retard.

I never realized how close together wandy's eyes are.
+5 # PeteDaMeat 2013-08-24 02:42
Yo Zeus,

Do you even WWE bro?!

That was AAA: LUCHA LIBRE at best.

I hope Wand gets some ppv points and calls it a career. Let the guy get paid, cause i doubt he'll have a deal like chuck, Hughes, or forrest lined up.

Gonna be a good fight i hope. Like both fighters
+5 # DENV3RtheDESTROY3R 2013-08-24 02:51
You never know they could always use him as a commentator for Brazilian UFC broadcasts. or something. He would deserve it.
+4 # PeteDaMeat 2013-08-24 03:07
Yeah true i guess.

Kinda short sighted on my part but i really became a Wanderlei fan from the Pride days. Gettin my hands on a new dvd with him fighting was so awesome. I hate to see him get beaten up.

All the guys from that special time are going.

Gracies, BJ, Chuck, Shogun, Coleman, Tito, Randy, Overeem, Fedor, Cro Cop, Rampage.

They are all fading away.

That hurt just to type that out.

Now adays, I can see Chael taking a Decision over Wandy, no way he subs or Ko's him. In Pride Rules/Days, it'd be Wandy by Murder.
I'm still of the mind that the reason why alot of the top Pride guys havent done as well is due to the rule changes. Hesitation kills folks..and thats exactly what the unified do imo. That an the roids prolly helped abit. Either way, War Wandy!!!
+2 # ShaelConnen 2013-08-24 15:38
There _was_ a mistranslation, although the original doesn´t sound too harsh in portuguese either:

He says "bunda mole" = soft ass, meaning coward.

It´s an old expression and I don´t know the story behind it, though.
-6 # DickNiaz 2013-08-24 18:48
Can't wait for Chael to rid the MMA world of this overrated tranny faced piece of garbage.
