Chael Sonnen hasn't laid off of Anderson Silva one bit since Silva's outburst about a week ago at the UFC 148 media call. Continuing his verbal attack at any opportunity he can get. Sonnen took aim at his favorite subject and person in an interview yesterday, saying he's all about respect and being honest to the media. Talking about Anderson's outburst Sonnen said "Him talking like that? He’s singing my song.”
Speaking to the los Angeles Times, Sonnen said:
“I’ve always believed in answering questions honestly. There’s a part of fighting I greatly believe in: it’s called respect. I don’t manufacture conflict. I’m not saying things to sell a fight. My job is to show up in short pants and a mouthpiece and punch the other guy in the face, If you want to make it a morality play, I’ll do it. In fact, I’ll speak to him about it Saturday night while running my fist up his prissy little self for 25 minutes to see where he’s at on that.”
When Sonnen was asked about Silva's reaction at the UFC 148 media call Sonnen said:
“I kind of expected it,” Sonnen stated on the topic of Silva’s anger before throwing another insult in the title-holder’s direction. “You idiot, Anderson, we signed up for a fistfight. I’ve been looking for this fight for two years, so that kind of stuff doesn’t work with me. Him talking like that? He’s singing my song.”
“I’m out picking a fight. I’m not offering any apology to anyone for that,” Sonnen continued. “He ducked me for four years before he had to fight me, and now he’s being forced into this again. I’m a volunteer army of one. This guy got drafted, and he’d like to duck the draft.”
I don't know about the respect and honesty part with Chael, but there is one thing that is certain, he knows how to sell himself and a fight, weather or not he should have let sleeping dogs lie in waking up the normally subdued Silva, will be determined this Saturday night... finally...
