... because he's done it once before -- in training:
"With Sonnen, he is more wrestling [based]. I trained with him one time at Xtreme Couture and I killed him there. I think he is a good opponent for me. I think its fun, no? Because sometimes I talk, we talk, its making the fight more interesting. I like to talk about my opponents, no problem. I am not afraid of anybody. I’ve fought with heavyweights, light-heavyweights… for me its no problem, I fight with all!"
Wanderlei Silva (via Fighters Only) sounds off on middleweight loud mouth Chael Sonnen. Although company president Dana White has ruled out the two as coaches for the upcoming thirteenth installment of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), that doesn't mean they won't be squaring off against each other in their next match-up. Sonnen's six-month suspension from the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) will be done in March and the war can commence. Sonnen vs (the other) Silva, Maniacs -- who's swinging the "Axe" in this one?
