Chael Sonnen further explains his challenge to Anderson Silva

Chael Sonnen further explains his challenge to Anderson Silva

I wonder what Chael Sonnen’s demeanor is like when his drive thru order at Wendy’s is incorrect. I can’t imagine any conceivable way he doesn’t turn his car right back around and challenge whoever made his order to some sort of face off that will leave one of them standing and the other one still working at a burger joint. Albeit face down in pickles and tiny packets of ketchup.

Sonnen is a man who just gave Anderson Silva an incredible opportunity: If Ando wins, Chael leaves the UFC and presumably Anderson alone for the rest of their days. If Chael wins, however, he wants Anderson Silva to leave the middleweight division forever. Chael spoke to MMAFighting.com to clarify his post fight ultimatum.

“he’s a coward and I don’t think he’d accept,” And you’ve gotta play by a coward’s rules sometimes. I’m trying to lure him into a fight so I gotta stick that carrot out there – something that I think he’ll do.”

“If Joe Rogan hadn’t taken the microphone out of my mouth I would have told him, ‘Anderson Silva I want your answer right now. If you accept I will wait till Super Bowl Weekend but if you reject I will walk over there right now and whip your ass in Houston, Texas!’”

“I have seen Anderson dance and I will tell you, he’s got some pretty good moves. He’s a pretty good dancer, I’ll give him that. I caught him at a club one time dancing and was like, ‘You’re a pretty good dancer.’ He can move a little bit.”

“These guys are tough guys. Stann is no different. He hit me hard in the body. Man, it hurt. I can still feel it. All these guys are tough. There’s really nothing I can say. You go do these matches, you do the best you can, but I am not here to be one of ‘these guys’. I’ve got plenty of money and plenty of fame. I’m after twelve pounds of gold and that’s it.”

If it’s a draw then I call for a dance off.
