Silva's camp: Sonnen crossed the line

by Steven Marrocco | source:

During a UFC 136 pre-fight media interview, Chael Sonnen gave a racy provocation to MMA broadcaster Mauro Renallo.

"You tell Anderson Silva I'm coming over," Sonnen said "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.".

During Sonnen's UFC 136 in-cage post-fight speech, cameras showed Silva smiling and feigning concern . Afterward, though, UFC president Dana White said the champ's true feelings were hidden.

"Those guys really don't like each other," White said. "I don't know if Chael really hates Anderson, but Anderson – I don't know if any of you saw his face when [Chael] won, but he wasn't doing the whole joking around thing. He was pissed. He's really upset bout the smack-his-wife-on-the-butt thing."

Chael Sonnen crossed the line, Silva's manager Ed Soares today told

"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."

"Chael is not the person that's going to determine when [Silva] is going to take the fight. 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."

Dear 'all day gay'. If Anderson beats Chael Mary, will you complete your sex change operation and finally replace your vagina with a pee pee? Just curious.

LOL @ medium rare.Seems Chael is the only one capable of beating Silva though.Even if anybody else at mw would beat him, Chael included, they would never be as dominant as Silva was.And for what it's worth, it too think Silva should move up in weight if he's so dissapointed with the competition at MW. After all, he's the one that already been up at LHW, and he is a BIG dude. Both Silva and Jones are capable of staying champion forever as long as they get down to MW and LHW, respectively. They simply have superior size, reach, weight and height advantages in addition to their skills.

maybe team Silva puts the screws to Chael and challenges GSP if/when he beats Condit.If they push hard and get it maybe that opens the door for Chael vs Paul Harris or something. At the least it would give Chael even more ammo to fire off on the microphone.just a random thought

Though I share your dislike for Soares I would remind you, Anderson himself is bald. Doesn't make you a bad person to be bald. And this is coming from a person with plenty of hair, mind you. :)

As much as I think Anderson will dicktuck... why did he show up to the fight?He had to know it was very likely that Chael was going to win. He also had to know that Chael was going to call him out in front of thousands.Is this all one epic Zuffa marketing scheme designed to sell 1mm+ PPVs? I'm sure Anderson won't mind getting pummeled and losing quite as much once he gets that paycheck...Also if you listen to Chael's interviews leading up to 136 he seems to have some foreknowledge and certainty of his next fight/date.

Yeah, you're reading comprehension isn't very good. Please quote somewhere where I said Munoz didn't deserve a title shot. Bet you can't without editing the quote. I have actually commented in other threads that I don't have a problem with him getting the title shot. I just find it funny that his people's go to guy for the next shot when there has been no buzz around him until now.Bisping may be ranked 6th on most sites, that just shows how shallow the MW division really is. The guy hasn't beat a top 10 fighter and nothing you can say can change that. So YOU are being the retard for even bringing him up.I don't care if he moves up or not but he's going to have to do something soon unless he wants to start having rematches. Whenever Hendo or Sonnen are brought up the Silva fans say he's already beaten them. What do you want him to do just sit on the sidelines and take meaningless fights? He should just retire if he's going to do that...

Me too, I think you misread what I was saying. I was saying no one was screaming for a Silva/Munoz fight after Silva beat Vitor. Munoz name hasn't came up until Sonnen petitioned for a rematch.

 YES! Because Silva goes around "asking for fights!!!"  Derper. LOL. When he rematched Franklin did he ask for it? Deperty Derp. And when you derp, do you derpy before you derp or do you stay thirsty when you derp?
