UFC Quick Quote: Wanderlei Silva calls Chael Sonnen an 'ass face'

"I have nothing to say to him. I won't give him that kind of audience. I don't care about what he says, I'm not interested. If he wants to say those things looking me in the eye, come here. But that way, saying things when we're distant, he's an ass face. Only pussies say things at your back. (He won't have the courage to call me names in person), never. If he does that he'll leave with a red burning ear".

-- Shit just got real? In a brief interview with Tatame.com, Wanderlei Silva was asked to comment on the smack spewing from Chael Sonnen's motor-mouth aimed at the PRIDE legend and his Brazilian countrymen. His reply was short and sweet, essentially calling the number one middleweight title contender a "pussy" for lipping off from a distance instead of straight to "The Axe Murderer's" face. And with the recent news that Sonnen's title shot against Anderson Silva has been moved to UFC 148 on July 7 in Las Vegas, Nevada, that means the two won't cross paths again, at least not for a while. Wanderlei is still scheduled to throw down at the UFC 147 event on June 23 in Brazil against Vitor Belfort. Assuming he wins -- and maybe even if he loses -- would anyone care to see him get a shot at Sonnen if he fails to capture the title a second time from "The Spider?" Or is this all just yakking and nothing will ever come of it so let's just move along? You decide, Maniacs.
