Wand: I want to put $100,000 on ‘Shogun’
Chael Sonnen has recently been running his mouth about getting a potential fighter with Wanderlei Silva. Silva recently spoke to MMAJunkie about a potential fighter and how confident he is in Shogun for tomorrow’s fight:
“This is a joke – he’s a clown,” Silva told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) in response to Sonnen’s statements. “He’s a second-level fighter. He’s not Top 10 – he’s not a top fighter. He can’t say anything about that because he’s not in the position. His results don’t give him the right to talk like that.”
“‘Shogun’ can beat him anywhere. In the standup or on the ground – he can submit and he can knock out,” Silva said. “I don’t see any chance for Sonnen in that fight. I don’t gamble, but I talked to my wife. I want to put $100,000 on ‘Shogun.'”
“‘Shogun’ is going to hurt him,” he said. “I think it’s maybe going to be Sonnen’s last fight. He’s not going to fight after that fight anymore.”
“When I fight with him, it’s going to be a great fight, it’s going to be a good match,” Silva said. “But when I fight with him, he’s going to know what’s going to happen.
“I’m not going to just fight. I’m going to hurt him.”
