Chael Sonnen didn’t forget to throw one more disparaging remark towards UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva this weekend.
Sonnen, who helped train Yushin Okami for his fight with Silva Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at UFC 134: Silva vs. Okami, was very vocal in regards to believing Okami would defeat Silva.
“We call Andy ‘champ’ like we call developmentally disabled animals ‘champ.’ Good boy, Andy, good boy!” Sonnen wrote on his Twitter account.
“The Spider” had no trouble defeating Okami and avenging a DQ loss to him from 2006. That was the last defeat Silva suffered, as he went on to enter the UFC later that year and capture the title from Rich Franklin.
Silva currently owns a 15-fight win streak, including a submission victory over Sonnen last year.
Sonnen, who is set to meet Brian Stann in October at UFC 136, has been out of action since the Silva loss due to a failed drug test and his involvement in a money laundering scheme.
UFC President Dana White has made mention of the Sonnen-Stann winner receiving the next shot at Silva and the middleweight title, but there have also been rumors of a Silva-Dan Henderson fight being looked at, as well.
