‘UFC 147: Sonnen vs. Silva’ Confirmed for June 23rd at ‘Engenhão’; Chael Unleashes Latest Verbal Assault

(Fans outside the Engenhão await their national hero.)

The UFC has confirmed the date and venue for UFC 147: Silva vs. Sonnen 2, slating it for June 23rd at Estádio Olímpico João Havelange in Rio de Janeiro. Known to the locals as “Engenhão,” the multi-use stadium seats nearly 47,000 people, and is the home field for the Botafogo soccer team. Engenhão will host the athletics competitions at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

With the main-event building steam, Chael Sonnen has gotten a head-start on his trash talk, responding to Anderson Silva‘s recent claim that Chael should quit talking and start training. His latest promo clip is vintage Sonnen. Here’s a taste:

I’m not fighting you in Brazil, I’m not fighting you in Chicago, I’m not fighting you in Florida. I’m fighting you in the Octagon. And when you get in there and I get in there, I’m gonna stomp you this time the same as I did last time. You can complain about your rib. I’m sure your rib *did* hurt. Your rib is inside of a coward. That’s the problem your rib’s got. It’s got the same problem your hands and feet have — they’re attached to *you*, dummy! I’m gonna be attached to you too, for 25 minutes or until you give up.”

Chael knows how to hype a fight. Im routing for him to beat Anderson (cause I like underdawgs). Im very curious to see what it would take to be SIlva (finally). If Silva wins.... It needs t be GSP next. There are no options left. And forget Nate. And forget Cote. There's nobody left.

Justin Bieber vs Manhood.......

I don't know guys I have Manhood taking this one, but Bieber does have that look in his eyes.

Could it just be Anderson Silva vs. Justin Bieber instead?

"I’m gonna be attached to you too, for 23 or so minutes until I give up, like last time.”
