Chael Sonnen Claims he is the Best at MW and Silva is a Thug
UFC middleweight number one contender, Chael Sonnen has made the outlandish claim that Brazilian superstar, Anderson Silva may be the man currently holding the belt, but he’s the best fighter in the division.
Speaking via UFC.com, Sonnen said:
“You can watch him walk into a weigh in and the place is silent. He doesn’t endear his fans and he pretends he doesn’t understand them. He doesn’t embrace the media, he pretends he doesn’t understand ‘em… And yeah, I’ve had conversations with Anderson, and he was a gentlemen. He was a really nice guy. At the same time, look, he’s a grown man with earrings. He’s a grown man with saggy pants, pink t-shirts and crooked hats. Go join a gang. Don’t get in the UFC. So if you wanna hang out as a street thug, go do it. But if you get in my way, I’m gonna run right over ya.”
“He’s the champion and I’m the best. He’s the champion of the weight class, I’m the best fighter in the weight class. I acknowledge he’s champion, he must acknowledge I’m the best. There’s some reason why he’s trying not to do this fight.”
Sonnen secured his shot at the title after putting impressive wins together over the likes of Yushin Okami and Nate Marquardt. Has his recent spurt in form seriously affected his thinking or could the Team Quest fighter be telling the truth? http://www.mmabay.co.uk/2010/04/28/u...-the-division/
