"It will be tough. He's a douchebag, but that's part of the deal. I'm here to work. We do what we have to do. But it won't be easy to live with him [on TUF]. Whatever I need to say, I'll say right to his face. I know that in the end, I'll make him pay inside the Octagon for everything he says. I expect a great win and I want a knockout. I won't have any injures when I get there, I will be ready to give him everything he deserves. Rashad will destroy him. He doesn't have what it takes to defeat Rashad. And I will beat what's left of him next."
I guess we know who Wanderlei Silva is picking when Chael Sonnen collides with friend and fellow light heavyweight Rashad Evans in the co-main event of UFC 167: "St. Pierre vs. Hendricks" later this month (Nov. 16, 2013) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Win or lose, Sonnen will get little time to recover, as he's already slated to coach a team of up-and-coming mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters (again) on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) "Brazil," which begins filming in early 2014 (we hope). That's where the self-proclaimed "Bad Guy" will chew the South American scenery opposite "The Axe Murderer," who is giving Sonnen (via MMA Fighting) a dose of his own verbal medicine (sorry, no camera this time).
