Now that the heavily-hyped rematch between middleweight king Anderson Silva (Pictured) and Chael Sonnen has been agreed upon, Silva claims it’s time for the chatty challenger to put up or shut up – well, at the very least, shut up.
“A fight is a fight, Chael is good, Bisping is good but a fight is a fight, but I don’t like this fight,” Silva said on ‘UFC Tonight’ of the last month’s top contender bout. “The Chael Sonnen and Bisping [bout] I don’t like. Bisping is good but Chael talk too much and not working.
“Michael Bisping is good he did a good job but Chael needs to train, no more talk just train. Going to Brazil, big problem … I don’t care to talk about Chael Sonnen [anymore].”
After manhandling Silva for nearly five complete rounds at UFC 117, Sonnen was abruptly submitted by “The Spider” with only 110 ticks remaining on the clock. Since the August 2010 defeat, Sonnen has been doing everything within his power to land a rematch.
Although Sonnen solidified another shot at Silva with a victory over Bisping, the talking has only just begun for the one-time political hopeful. Shortly after last night’s episode aired on FUEL TV, Sonnen responded in true Uncle Chael Fashion.
The arch enemies are slated to meet this June in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
