Chael Sonnen is the only guy to hand Paulo Filho a lost and consequently sent Filho spiraling into some dark void of depression, strange tattoos, fishing, and his mother covering for him whenever he’s out of his anti-depressant medications. Sonnen is scheduled to be locked in a cage with Nate Marquardt at UFC 109, but before that goes down, Chael has a little information about Anderson Silva that he needs to share with you.
“That guy’s no more the top fighter out there than Bigfoot is roaming the woods. That is an absolute myth, and all these guys can buy into it, but there’s a young man out in Portland, Oregon, that is not signing up on that bandwagon.”
“It’s quite ironic that all the media comes on and talks about how great this guy is for reasons that are completely un-understandable to me. How great Anderson Silva is, and all of us fighters are in the back going, ‘jeez, they’re out there massaging his ego, Anderson hates them so much, he pretends he can’t understand them.’
“If Anderson ever signed to fight me, which is highly unlikely, he’ll be getting a verbal beating like you’ve never seen. And his language barrier won’t be the point of interest.”
Props to Chael Sonnen using the elusive ‘un-understandable’. That’s one of those words you keep in your back pocket and only use when you want to make someone’s head spontaneously explode from grammatical error. [Source]
