Anderson Silva Breaks His Silence On Chael Sonnen

“Chael, as a fighter, is a good politician. As far as all the trash he’s talking, when both of us are inside the Octagon, he’s going to have an opportunity to make good on all the things he’s saying. The night of the fight, he’s have the chance to show the world what he thinks he’s capable of. There are idiotic things coming out of his mouth. Chael’s saying I’ve never fought a wrestler. In my opinion, Dan Henderson is one of the best wrestlers in MMA. With him being a politician, he should really pay attention to what he’s saying. First Chael says he want to be a fighter, then he says he wants to be a politician. Which one is it? You can only choose one. I’ve chosen to be a fighter. After the fight, Chael will have a different idea of what choice he wants to make, but for now, we’ll have prepare ourselves for the Octagon. I’m going into this fight well trained technically, mentally and physically, and I’m going to give it my all. If there’s one thing I can tell my fans and everyone who’s watching is that I’m going to go in there and give the best performance I can.”
