Anderson Silva’s (Pictured) outburst during Monday’s conference call was out of character and unexpected, but the UFC is going to milk his lambasting of Chael Sonnen for all it’s worth.
In the latest UFC 148 video promo to hit the airwaves, the organization pieced together some of Sonnen’s banter over the past several months and ended it with Silva’s tirade from earlier this week.
Their rematch has been two years in the making, and the anticipation and hoopla is starting to hit a fever pitch.
UFC 148 takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
