After remaining quiet for the past few months since failing his UFC 117 drug test and being suspended by the UFC, middleweight contender Chael Sonnen quickly broke his silence on Anderson Silva’s win over Vitor Belfort at UFC 126 in an interview with Paul Lazenby:
“Thank you, Anderson, for revealing yet another weakness for me to exploit in our rematch. Beating that poor punching bag doesn’t impress Uncle Chael, guy. You tipped your hand like a chump poker player at a $5 table in Atlantic City. You may have beaten Vitor, but in the process, you LOST your edge. By beating that husk, you gave me the last page of your playbook. Revel in your time, [because] it ENDS the night you face me. I will mow you down like autumn wheat, AGAIN.”
With Sonnen forced to take added time off and a Georges St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva looming, it could be awhile before he is able to make good on his strong words for the UFC champ.
