Number one middleweight title contender Chael Sonnen held a special Q&A session just before yesterday's UFC 145: "Jones vs. Evans" weigh-ins and finally revealed his one demand for his upcoming fight against Anderson Silva.

If the fight is to be held in Brazil, here's what Sonnen wants:

"I have a demand of my own. Anderson had his list and I have but one. There will be 80,000 people in attendance. And my demand is simple ... silence. When I come through the curtain, they will sit down, they will shut their mouths, they will show respect to their American guest or I will go back to the dressing room, back to the car, back to the airport, back to America, and those ingrates aren't going to get to see me fight."

Of course, his demand may be rendered irrelevant if the fight gets moved to the main event of the UFC 148 fight card scheduled for July 7 in Las Vegas, Nevada, as is currently rumored.

To that end, stay tuned.

Sonnen also took a few more digs at the Brazilian people, saying he plans on bringing a bag of gifts once he heads down there for a special press conference next Tuesday in Rio de Janeiro. His plan? Bring them a few amenities they don't currently have, like soap and toothbrushes.

That's not all the pound-for-pound biggest mouth in all of MMA had to say, though. See him go off even more after the jump. To watch the complete Chael Sonnen Q&A session click here.
