He'll hurt him...
Wanderlei Silva recently spoke with MMAjunkie about Chael Sonnen's commens regarding him, including Sonnen saying he wants to fight Silva next but that Silva is afraid. Check out the highlights:
On Sonnen's challenge: "This is a joke – he's a clown. He's a second-level fighter. He's not Top 10 – he's not a top fighter. He can't say anything about that because he's not in the position. His results don't give him the right to talk like that."
On Sonnen vs. Rua: "'Shogun' can beat him anywhere. In the standup or on the ground – he can submit and he can knock out. I don't see any chance for Sonnen in that fight. I don't gamble, but I talked to my wife. I want to put $100,000 on 'Shogun.'"
On how the fight will turn out: "'Shogun' is going to hurt him. I think it's maybe going to be Sonnen's last fight. He's not going to fight after that fight anymore."
On his health status: "I had a problem with my sciatic in this last fight and the pain comes, the pain goes," Silva said. "I don't have that problem anymore and I'm ready to get back."
On his desire to fight Sonnen: "When I fight with him, it's going to be a great fight, it's going to be a good match. But when I fight with him, he's going to know what's going to happen. I'm not going to just fight. I'm going to hurt him."
