Not only did "The Axe Murderer" have to witness the demise of his PRIDE FC pal, Mauricio Rua, he was also forced to keep smiling for photo ops with mixed martial arts (MMA) fans while his mortal enemy, Chael Sonnen, called him out on live television.
"Dirtbag move," part deux?
Sonnen was able to secure a first-round submission win over "Shogun" in the main event of UFC Fight Night 26, which took place at the TD Garden on FOX Sports 1 last Saturday night (Aug. 17, 2013) in Boston, Massachusetts. Following his stunning victory, "The American Gangster" laid down the gauntlet.
Here is Silva's reaction.
There is no guarantee these two will hook 'em up, even if they should. Sonnen was a popular man following his efforts in "Beantown," getting called out himself by a trio of eager light heavyweights. In addition, Silva may not return to action until December.
And he wants to settle this score in Brazil.
