For those of you that just can’t get enough of the hoopla surrounding middleweight champion Anderson Silva and his chatty challenger Chael Sonnen, in steps today’s UFC 117 pre-fight press conference from the Hilton San Francisco Fisherman’s Wharf Hotel in California.
In addition to the middleweight studs, UFC president Dana White, Jon Fitch, Thiago Alves, Matt Hughes, Ricardo Almeida, Roy Nelson and Junior dos Santos are all expected to attend today’s media session.
The superstars are scheduled to take the podium at 4PM ET/1PM PT.
Although Sonnen has done more than his fair share to promote this scrap, Octagon brass decided to put another mic in front of the realator so he can continue his creative sales pitch. While most people on this side of sanity aren’t buying what he’s selling, his comments have been outright entertaining nonetheless – if not completely outrageous.
UFC 117 will be jumping off this Saturday inside Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA. The live pay-per-view broadcast starts at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
