Wanderlei Silva responds to Chael Sonnen

After Chael Sonnen was defeated by Jon Jones at UFC 159, he mentioned the possibility of finally meeting Wanderlei Silva in the octagon.UFC on FUEL TV Logo

Sonnen then went to Twitter and said Silva had 24 hours to respond on the two facing each other at UFC on Fox Sports 1 in Boston on August 17th.

Silva did not respond to Sonnen but did make a statement to Ariel Helwani of FUEL TV and stated he has not been offered this fight by the UFC.

“Jon Jones and Anderson Silva have been too nice to Chael,” Silva said. “I want to suck his blood. I want to smell it. Not just fight – I want to hurt him. Chael is a joke, man. He’s going to be second forever. He’s never going to be first.”

After Helwani read the statement of Silva, Sonnen responded to the comments in a way he could only respond.

“I think the real breaking news there is that Wanderlei Silva put together a coherent sentence that somebody understood,” Sonnen said. “But I can assure you, Wanderlei, I will not be signing a contract for you to suck on any part of me. I suggest you go to a bath and find yourself.”

All signs point to this fight happening and the only question is whether the fight will take place on August 17th in Boston or a later fight card.
