Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira: Of course Chael Sonnen isn't coming to Brazil, the people would kill him in the street (Video)

It was initially reported that Chael Sonnen would corner Yushin Okami in his fight against Anderson Silva before it came to light that sponsorship issues prevented as much. Or at least that's the story.

The details are still murky but the fact remains -- Sonnen won't be in Rio de Janeiro for UFC 134: "Silva vs. Okami" this weekend to answer for the various slanderous statements he's made about the country and its inhabitants.

It's a good thing, too, if Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is correct in his assumption that the people of the South American country would "kill him in the street."
