Silva: Sonnen needs to train, not talk

by Michael David Smith | source:

Silva told Ariel Helwani on Fuel TV's UFC Tonight that he believes Sonnen would be wise to keep his mouth shut and get to work on training.

"Chael talks too much," Silva said. "Chael needs to train. No more talk, train. Going to Brazil? Big problem."

Silva gave the interview in English, perhaps another sign that he's hoping to match Sonnen's talk before matching up with him inside the Octagon. But Silva also said that Sonnen isn't going to get under his skin.

"I don't care about Chael Sonnen," Silva said.

Really hope to see Silva embarrass Sonnen and in literally brutal hyperbole...Sonnen deserves to be brutalized and destroyed by Silva.I almost never wish to see someone hurt, the only other person that comes to mind is Cantwell.

Yeah right. Sonnen has nothing else he can do to make a living. He will drop to 170 after Silva pushes his shit in.

^ true, he talks alot, but he is always on! I think Bisping went into the Sonnen fight with nothing to lose. Ever since the Dan Henderson fight he has been fighting like that! I think he is a real good fighter! Dangerous. Chael is dangerous as well , but the first time he fought Anderson he used his awesome wrestling, and strength. Anderson will be alot stronger, and more prepared. Silva 2nd rd. Tko or Submission.
