Silva guarantees Sonnen's safety in Brazil


Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva made excellent choices to coach a season of the Ultimate Fighter. But Chael Sonnen in Brazil? Sonnen has not exactly made fans of Brazilian's and the question of his safety was seriously considered, but Wanderei Silva feels like Sonnne has nothing to worry about...except him:

“He’ll be 100 percent safe,” Silva said.

“Just one guy is going to beat him, and this guy is me. Nobody (else) is going to touch you. Brazil is different.”

Silva dismissed the notion that Sonnen's hate speech was merely humorous fight promotion and that "The Axe Murderer" was being too sensitive.

“It’s a joke for you, but it’s not a joke for me and not for my country,” he said.

“But don’t worry [Sonnen] . You’re going to be safe. But you’re going to pay for that account in June.

Juarez has chilled out a lot in the past 18mo - 2years. Not too familiar with kidnapping stats, but it's been a lot more stable since the the cartels solved the problem of who is going to run the port. It's actually ranked lower in violence than New Orleans, Chicago, and Detroit lately. If Wandy snores that much while he's awake, I truly feel sorry for those who have to share a house with him while he is sleeping.

I was just bullshitting. No one knows what the number of kidnapping are because most are not reported. They're trying to clean up their image in preparation for the World Cup & the Olympics, so many areas are heavily policed.
