By now, we’re used to Chael Sonnen making bombastic statements, but his recent comments about arch-rival Anderson Silva’s wife seemed to be a bit much even for the master of over-the-top trash talk.
“You tell Anderson Silva I’m coming over and I’m kicking down his backdoor and patting his little lady on the ass, and I’m telling her to make me a steak, medium-rare, just how I like it,” Sonnen said during an appearance on Mauro Ranallo’s The MMA Show.
Never one to leave well enough alone, Sonnen launched into a pro-wrestling-inspired call-out of the champion following his two-round blitzing of Brian Stann last Saturday night. Silva and his camp usually don’t play into Sonnen’s game, but the West Linn, Oregon native did enough this time around to draw a response from the champion’s manager, Ed Soares.
“First the guy gets in trouble for fraud, then he tests positive for steroids, and now he wants to kick in someone’s door and slap their wife in the ass? This guy should be in jail; he shouldn’t be fighting,” said Soares.
During his call-out, Sonnen asserted that their meeting should take place on Super Bowl weekend. Currently, The Spider is out rehabbing a shoulder injury and Soares said that this will determine his return date and not a challenge issued by Sonnen.
“Chael is not the person that’s going to determine when [Silva] is going to take the fight,” Soares said. “When he’s going to take this fight is when his shoulder is completely healed up, and he’s ready to start his training camp for the fight. It’s not because Chael says he wants to fight in February. Who is Chael to determine that? Chael needs to take a number and wait his turn. He got his opportunity, and he tapped. It’s not the first time he’s tapped, and I guarantee you it won’t be the last.”
