At the Olympia expo in Las Vegas last weekend, Chael Sonnen was signing autographs at a booth, when Wanderlei Silva suddenly appeared, accompanied by a camera crew.  "The Axe Murderer" and Sonnen went nose-to-nose and ended up having to be pulled apart.

Then Wand released an over the top video commentating on the altercation.

"Real men talk face to face," said Wand on the video. "With me the talk is straight up. I will punch you face, it will happen soon. I didn't smash you today because I'm a professional, and professionals keep it out of the streets... I heard the fear in your voice when you started talking with that thin voice like a girl. You were shaking in fear. You loser."

On Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight, Chael Sonnen took the oppotunity to respond.

"I'm all for Wanderlei having a little fun," said Sonnen. "But Wanderlei, three things. First off, if you're going to do a publicity stunt, do not bring your own camera. It looks staged, which it was. It insults your audience. Assume that they're going to connect the dots. Show up somewhere where a camera is, and then go into your little routine.

"Secondly, In this country and in this industry, if you refuse to fight a guy, like you did me, you forfeit your right to then talk about that person in this type of fashion. Accosting somebody in public, can be regrettable. Accosting a gangster can be hazardous."

Third, Chael invited Wand to be interviewed on UFC Tonight. Sonnen also said that UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis had his back.

"I turn about a quarter inch. Here's Anthony Pettis," said Sonnen. "And he's ready to fight. Now they've got four guys against Pettis... Say what you want; Pettis is a handsome, nice champion. But at the end of the day, he's a street kid from Milwaukee. Wanderlei, be very careful about doing these things."

Wand is apparently thinking long term, as he is out with injuries likely until 2014, and Sonnen is signed to fight Rashad Evans at UFC 167 on Nov. 16 in Las Vegas.

It was pretty gay of wand to do this at the olympia while not agreeing to fight chael.

I think this is all fake btw, i think chael is trying to cover this up by saying wand's part was fake to throw us off. Phone Post

Chael brought more in that one paragraph than any of Wand's long ramblings on his strange non intimidating over the top dramatic vlogs with bad music. Phone Post

Pitbull3744 - Wow Chael is unbelievable lol. He was scared shitless of Wand that day and in the car that time but only waits for either twitter or tv to talk shit. Man if this guy wasn't a fighter he would be the definition of a tough guy when no one is around him. Phone Post 3.0
Please elaborate on how chael was "scared" in that video. He got surprised by a mob of people, one of them being the axe murderer, and stood his ground. Phone Post

Chael has two modes: "normal" and "showtime." In the car with Wand he was normal, which for him is polite and respectful. Pretty easy to figure out by looking at how he grew up.

he wasn't scared in the car, what's he supposed to do when he's a professional fighter, get in a fight in a car or just take the higher road and not start escalate the situation to a fight? It's fuckin car you idiot, he's not gonna fight in a car

If it does, I'm flying out there and ordering a mean street pizza, but I might need some homies to have my back in West Lin.

No.Hes actually a good fighter and a nice guy too, are you too dumb to see he has a promotional side as well that has done wonders for his career?Say whatever you want about his UFC record, his only losses in years have been to Jones and Silva.

Wand is coming out of this situation looking silly. Phone Post 3.0
