In a recent interview, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva described himself as being a metrosexual.
So, as you might have guessed, the comment came up during a Q&A session hosted by Chael Sonnen prior to the UFC 145 weigh-ins.
And, as only he can, Sonnen gave a very calculated, well-thought-out response.
I am shocked. Really? That blows me away. What’s next, you’re going to tell me a UFC ring card girl got naked for a few bucks? You are blowing my mind. The hell you say, young lady. I don’t believe it. That’s like telling me that (Alistair) Overeem) was positive. I mean, convincing me of that is like convincing me that Roy Nelson is clean. I’m just not going to believe it.
In one answer, Sonnen took a shot at the UFC’s Arianny Celeste, defended Overeem, and even fired off a one-liner against “Big Country.” No doubt, Sonnen was on fire during the session.
The planned rematch between Silva and Sonnen has become a question in regards to the date, as the United Nations peace conference set for Brazil could change the Silva-Sonnen fight to July and Las Vegas. We should know more next week when UFC president Dana White, Silva and Sonnen take part in a press conference planned for Rio de Janeiro.
