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 MMAjunkie.com.
"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."
