"I think he's just talking nonsense. He is not even a real challenger to Anderson. I think other fighters have done much more in the division, such as Dan Henderson, Nate Marquardt, whom he won against, Demian Maia, who played with (Sonnen) like a child, and Vitor Belfort. He is enjoying his 15 minutes of fame. He will take a beating from Anderson, who will beat him like a child, will beat his ass and will shut his mouth. He has no qualifications to compete for the belt -- that's the truth. He doesn’t have good boxing or ground, only good wrestling. Anderson is on another level. He hopes that Anderson will lose his control and blow up. It’s the only chance he has since Anderson is technically much better than him."
Top ranked UFC light heavyweight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira slams the mouthy rise to fame of Chael Sonnen, who faces Anderson Silva for the middleweight title at UFC 117. Of course the Nogueira brothers were part of Sonnen's rants, when he referred to "The Spider's" black belt as "a toy that you get in a happy meal." Whether or not his trash talk has gotten under the skin of Silva remains to be seen, but it definitely sounds like it's starting to irk the Nogueira's. Anyone think the former politician is going to eat his words on August 7?
