UFC Middleweight Wanderlei Silva

Alright, these dark and ominous black and white videos UFC middleweight Wanderlei Silva (pictured) is now releasing are getting more and more scary – like leave the lights on at night scary.

In Silva’s latest video, he addresses Saturday’s heated confrontation with Chael Sonnen at the Olympia Expo in Las Vegas.

“You messed with the wrong guy!” Silva said to Sonnen. “Now your time will come. I will get you. You are afraid of me. And I will beat you up. I wanted to beat you up [Saturday]. But I’m a professional, and I don’t fight in the street.

“Real men talk face to face. With me the talk is straight up. I will punch your face. Everything you said about me will have a payback.”

I’m sure plenty of intensity was lost in the translation, but the message in the clip is still crystal clear.

The UFC was hoping to pair Silva and Sonnen up at UFC 167, but a back injury will keep “The Axe Murderer” on the sidelines until January. Sonnen will now co-headline UFC 167 against Rashad Evans.

However, it appears a Silva vs. Sonnen showdown will eventually come to fruition. Soon.

Sonnen said he will address the near-rumble on this week’s edition of Fox Sports 1’s “UFC Tonight.”
