Chael Sonnen Responds To Wanderlei Silva’s Threats

Well, that didn’t take very long now did it?

Chael Sonnen, via his Twitter account on Sunday, responded to recent comments made by Wanderlei Silva about the No. 1 UFC middleweight contender.

Sonnen, who is set to face Anderson Silva for the belt later this year, continued his verbal warpath against Brazil and the native people, including both Silvas, during a press conference last week in Rio.

Silva, Wanderlei that is, was quoted in a recent article in which you can read on MMA Convert by clicking here. Sonnen’s response went as follows.

Wanderlei: If I have to find you face to face every time I choose to ridicule you….my frequent flyer miles would go faster than you can say ‘former Brazilian who lives in Vegas.’

That would be Sonnen’s way of calling out Wanderlei for leaving Brazil to train and live in Las Vegas. He was born in Curitiba, Brazil, but trains at his own gym, The Wand Fight Team Training & Conditioning Center, in Vegas.
