Listen to the entire UFC 148 conference call where media asked questions to those participating in the main event and co-main event- Chael Sonnen, Anderson Silva, Forrest Griffin, Tito Ortiz, and UFC President Dana White were all present.
Within this call you will hear Dana White explaining how he has never heard Anderson Silva speak like this leading up to a fight. Here’s just one example of several remarks made by UFC middleweight champ Silva to Sonnen: “I’m going to beat him like his parents should have. I’m going to smash his face and smash every one of his teeth out. He will never fight again and he will never again disrespect my country or my family.”
From a very pissed off Anderson Silva:
“Chael is a criminal, he is a criminal. He has been convicted of crimes and he doesn’t deserve to be inside the Octagon. When the time is right, I am going to break his face and every one of his teeth in his mouth. Playtime is over, the jokes are over. I am going to beat his ass out of the UFC. He is never going to want to fight again after I am done with him. It doesn’t matter if I am on bottom, side or top. Chael is going to get his ass kicked like never before. What I do inside the Octagon is going to change the image of the sport. I am going to make sure his legs are broke and arms are broke he will not be able to walk out by himself. I know he is listening; no more sh*t talking, it is on now. I’m going to make him pay and make him eat everything he said about myself and my country. I’m going to make sure he does not disrespect any other fighter. I’m going to beat him like his parents should have beat him to have manners. He can say whatever he wants, but I am not playing anymore. It will be the same like the first fight. He walked out the loser and this time he is going to walk out the loser. The only difference is that this time he is going to have to visit a plastic surgeon after the fight.”
