The trash talk between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva spilled over nearly into a fight at yesterday’s Olympia Expo from the Las Vegas, NV’s Convention Center. The encounter was caught on cell phone video.
At the convention, Silva apparently confronted Sonnen and was the aggressor of the two. The video is far from the best quality, but Silva can be heard telling Sonnen “his time is going to come” before they are separated.
The two have been going at it for a while now, in a feud which has started to turn personal.
Sonnen returns at UFC 167 in the co-main event of UFC 167 on November 16 against Rashad Evans. Silva has no Octagon return date since finishing Brian Stann in March.
For the video, which remember is on the choppy side, check it out below and thanks to Larry Pepe for uploading it.
UPDATE: Silva posted the following video from the altercation, which is much clearer.
