UFC’s no.1 middleweight contender Chael Sonnen continues to run his mouth as he prepares for his UFC 117 title fight against current champion Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva. Sonnen truly believes that no one cares about the 185-pound champion, claiming that he is simply a grown man who wears thug-like apparel and doesn’t belong in the UFC.
On August 7th, Sonnen will be prepared to go five rounds against Silva as they are scheduled to fight for the UFC middleweight title at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. The former WEC fighter plans on sending ‘The Spider’ straight into retirement where he feels the Brazilian fighter belongs.
From Chael Sonnen:
“He’s a grown man with earrings. He’s a grown man with saggy pants, pink t-shirts and crooked hats. Go join a gang, don’t get in the UFC. People don’t care about him. He came out and said he’s gonna go heavyweight, no one cared. So he comes out and says well ‘I’m gonna go light heavyweight,’ no one cared. ‘Well I’m gonna retire.’ Good! Beat it, this is back page news, no one cares about you anyway. ‘Well I’m not gonna retire I’m gonna stick around.’ Or do that. Again, it doesn’t really matter, you’re a nuisance. So who cares, they go make the little action figures and the two little kids that bought em, are probably pretty upset, their parents probably thought it was Quinton Jackson when they bought it for them and the kids had a disappointing Christmas I would imagine. That’s a big difference. I became the number one contender on February and February 7 he sent out a press release as to why he shouldn’t have to fight me. On August 7 he will fight me. I stand here of my own free will. He stands here because Uncle Dana is making him.”
