UFC Middleweight Wanderlei Silva

UFC superstar Wanderlei Silva (pictured) just dropped the ultimate diss, he called archenemy Chael Sonnen a “butt face.” Not to be confused with butt hole, which was the popular term when I was in elementary school.

Silva released a dark and ominous video Friday where he goes off on Uncle Chael … for four minutes and 58 seconds. The clip comes two days after UFC president Dana White said he would have Silva vs. Sonnen co-headline UFC 167 if “The Axe Murderer” was healthy, and one day after White revealed to MMAFighting that Silva wouldn’t take the fight unless he was offered a pay-per-view percentage.

Silva blasts Sonnen, calling him a “coward,” a “lower-level fighter” and of course, a “butt face.”

“I’m only waiting for the date and the location, because people want this fight and I want this fight,” Silva stated, among countless other things. “I’ve already shut you up, face to face, and you were not man enough to step up to me. Sonnen, you are afraid of me, and I can see it in your eyes every time we meet.”

Silva does not mention White’s claim about demanding a piece of the PPV pie.

UFC 167 takes place November 16 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
