Anderson Silva Promises to Beat Chael Sonnen So Badly It Will ‘Change the Image of the Sport’


(“Well, this little red-and-white number is my killing shirt, and if you see it, that usually means this is your last day on earth.”)

The UFC held a conference call today hyping UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen 2 (you can listen to the full audio here), and somebody replaced the normally composed and respectful Anderson Silva with a murderous, rage-fueled psychopath. Fed up with all of Chael Sonnen‘s bullshit over the last couple years, Silva unleashed a torrent of chilling threats during the call that went beyond the usual boundaries of trash-talk, and were totally out-of-character for the smooth Burger King pitchman. Here are the highlights:

First of all, Chael is a criminal. He’s been convicted of crimes. He doesn’t deserve to be inside the Octagon. And when the time is right, I’m going to break his face and break every one of his teeth in his mouth.”

The playtime is over. I’m gonna beat Chael like he’s never been beat before. There’s no more talking. I know he’s on the line listening, and the game’s over. I’m going to beat his ass out of the UFC. He’s never gonna want to fight again after I’m done with him.”

It doesn’t matter if I’m on the bottom, the side, the top, it doesn’t matter. Chael Sonnen‘s gonna get his ass kicked like he’s never gotten his ass kicked before. What I’m gonna do inside the Octagon is something that’s gonna change the image of the sport. I’m gonna beat his ass like he’s never been beaten before. I’m gonna make sure that every one of his teeth are broken, his arms are broke, his legs are broke. He’s not going to be able to walk out of the Octagon by himself. I can guarantee that. And I know that he’s listening. The game’s over. No more shit-talking. It’s on now.”

I’m just gonna make him pay, and make him eat everything he said, not only about myself, but about our country, about everything. I’m gonna make him pay and make sure that he never disrespects any fighter — not only Brazilian [fighters], any fighter. I’m going to beat him maybe the way his parents should have beaten him to teach him some manners, because he’s disrespectful, he’s a criminal, and I’m gonna beat him up like he’s never been beat before.”

The first time we fought, he stepped out [as] the loser, and he’s gonna step out losing again this time, the only difference is that this time he’s gonna have to go see a plastic surgeon after the fight.”

Sonnen didn’t get nearly as many opportunities to speak during the call, although he did call Silva an “amateur,” and fell back onto his old “medium rare” catchphrase.

I don’t know, guys…I think Sonnen might be seriously fucked here. Anderson Silva generally fights with an eerie calmness that highlights what a brilliantly violent destroyer of men he is. (You might call it Fedor-esque.) But an Anderson who is clearly pissed off and committed to hurting his opponent so badly that it might lead to a worldwide ban on MMA? What would that even look like? Can you really manage to break all of your opponent’s teeth and all four of his limbs before the fight is stopped? Kind of a far-fetched threat — but hey, if anybody can pull that off, it’s Silva.

Gonne be a good one fo sho, and sorry Drano, my brutha from anutha mutha, I got spidey in this same as the first, BTW JDS stated he was gunna punish Mir and did, if Spidey goes to the same witch doctor, Ol teensy balls Sonnen may be in trouble.
PS, is it true Sonnen only uses TRT so he can fit more nuthuggers on his little scrotum?"

It's cool bro we can pick opposite opponents and its just a good fun competition between us always. It's those other nuthuggers out there that bother me. As always I wish you the best of luck, it will be a good fight. I will drink to your choice.

If Sonnen wins by some unholy cocktail of illicit substances they should bring Jeremy Horn in for an immediate title shot.

It seems as if Sonnen is finally getting to Silva. Which isn't good for Silva since he is always a calm fighter. I find it hard to believe that a guy who only has 3 submission victories in 31 wins and never broken anybody's limb. Would be a more legitimate threat coming from Frank Mir

Nobody knows what will happen in that fight, or every one of you would be betting all the money you could scrape together. Odds are, it won't be an easy fight for either of them. It's a HUGE fight that both of them absolutely have to win.
If Chael loses, it gets real hard to claim he's the best. Silva would refuse to fight him again, no matter what level of BS it took to avoid him.
If Silva loses, he's in the awkward position of having lost to the guy who threw shit at him and his entire country... and he's suddenly just a contender.
Neither of them will have ever trained so seriously for a fight, so no, Anderson Silva won't beat Chael Sonnen up like he's a defenseless kid.

im so tired of sonnen talkin shit. all silva wants to do is fight and do his job and sonnen just keeps running his mouth.

Drano"Segal"kills talking about reality? Nice
Mr_Misanthropy- June 26, 2012 at 12:31 am
I'm just here for the violence. I like silva, but if he ties a knot in the front of that shirt he's going to end up in the other position in that Polaroid somebody blew up for that poster down there in Brazil. That's exactly what a Polaroid with a telephoto lens looks like-- I should know, that's how I stalked all my victims back in the 80's with my Burt Reynolds stache and Bronson hair.

Can't wait, War Sonnen!
holeeball- June 25, 2012 at 10:50 pm
SO Sonnen thinks Silva's an amateur. An amateur that made him tap out to a triangle choke.
He's an amateur trash talker I'll give him that but how can you compete with a professional conman full of T up his ass? Inconceivable.

RIP SONNEN

@Clue-by-Four Youre not gonna acknowledge that he does in fact have an eerie calmness because Sonnen was winning until he lost? Youre advertently missing the point to push your Chael fandom by bragging on a fight that Chael lost by tapping. The comment section doesn't have to be mindless bullshit. We COULD talk about MMA."

there is NOTHING eerie or calm about Anderson Silva. well skilled talented MMa fighter fighter but nothing abnormal to me. Maybe your head is so far up Silva's ass you can't see anything else. But swinging from his nutsack thinking he is superman is bullshit, and perhaps YOU should practice what you preach about talking MMA. I find your lack of reality to be......typical of most every other post on the potato, sounds like you fit right in, so come down off your highhorse and just enjoy the fun.
smellypiratehooker- June 25, 2012 at 11:06 pm
Well abnormal in the consensus that he is by most peoples definition the pound for pound greatest. when you say that swinging from his nutsack thinking he is superman is bullshit, what other more qualifyed nut sack would you swing from? I think he will beat Sonnnen " proper fucked " but we will have to wait and find out.
dranokills- June 25, 2012 at 9:15 pm
hmmm the last person to talk this much was cock chestner, and we all know what happened to him.
I think Anderson is scared, hes pissed cause hes scared.
I still think Chael will beat Silva this time.

I always wondered how some loony politicians got so many votes. Now I know.

As long as the ass beating is 60 dollars worth I'm cool
holeeball- June 25, 2012 at 8:28 pm
Let's hope Sonnen doesn't go the whole fight dry humping Silva like last time because we all know how good that turned out to be. So much work for so little pay off. Sad. Maybe Silva spares him with a Master Steven kick.
Sempronius- June 25, 2012 at 8:11 pm
This is what he actually said in the first part. "This guy is a thug. He’s a scum of the sport. This guy doesn’t deserve to be in the UFC. He’s a guy who’s had trouble with the law in the U.S. He’s a guy who’s had issue with doping. A guy that doesn’t respect anything. An imbecile. And on the right day I’m gonna break his face. Every teeth in his mouth, I’d take it out."

Silva VIA double arm/calf-slicer triangle hold of death

icehole10- June 25, 2012 at 6:08 pm
chael dominated anderson on the ground and on the feet, then got caught with 1 minute left. this time chael finishes what he started. not sure where anderson gets all this confidence after being worked over by chael the first time around. i hope chael knocks hom OUT!!!

"Anderson Silva generally fights with an eerie calmness that highlights what a brilliantly violent destroyer of men he is."

Where was that Silva during the last fight? You know, the one where Sonnen punched him in the mouth for 4 and a half rounds? Was Silva just trying to lull him in to a false sense of security by blocking all of those punched with his head?

Intriguing strategy.
