Chael Sonnen held a fan Q&A session on prior to UFC on FUEL TV 2: Gustafsson vs. Silva on Saturday. The UFC middleweight No. 1 contender answered several questions, many of which were related to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Sonnen’s next opponent, UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva.
When asked how good of a chance he would have against Jones, Sonnen responded, “No – bet big on Jones. Do me a personal favor and mortage your house.” In regards to his strategy against “Bones,” Sonnen wrote, “punch him in the face, repeatedly.”
In regards to a question about his favorite and least favorite Brazilian fighters, Sonnen responded, “To watch? Favorite would probably be Vitor Belfort. I don’t know if I have a least favorite from Brazil.”
As for that demand Sonnen had in accepting the rematch with Silva, he said, “I would love to (discuss it) but not in 140 characters, but I commend you for asking.”
Sonnen and Silva will meet in the main event of UFC 147 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on June 23.
