It seems Chael Sonnen has the same idea many of you had. He wants to teach Michael “Spitsbing” a lesson about professionalism inside the Octagon. Somehow MMA Weekly obtained a copy of an email Sonnen sent to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva requesting the opportunity to “mince him through the fence like a boiled potato.”

Re: Spitsbing & his tainted victory
If you get a chance to talk with him, please mention to your idiot-in-residence Michael Spitsbing it’ll be a little tougher to knee ME in the head when I’m charging at him like a runaway train and mincing him through the fence like a boiled potato, should we ever have the pleasure of each other’s company for a few (VERY few) moments in the Octagon.
Oh; and I’d suggest to him being a little careful about spitting on any of MY cornermen, since any one of them can beat him up as badly as I can. Thanks ever so much.
Hope all is well.
There’s a lot of directions Joe Silva could go with the middleweight division this summer. Everyone wants to fight everyone it seems and they’re all great match-ups, but this one is an absolute no-brainer once they reinstate Sonnen and figure out Bisping’s punishment. Vitor Belfort wants a piece of Bisping too, but it might be best to let Uncle Chael take this one and let Vitor fight Wanderlei Silva. There’s no doubt Sonnen vs. Bisping would result in some epic trash talk. If Bisping got pissed off at Jorge Rivera’s videos, Chael will probably give him a brain aneurysm.
