Wanderlei Silva Back On Board Fighting Chael Sonnen, Wants 30-Minute Battle

Wanderlei Silva Back On Board Fighting Chael Sonnen, Wants 30-Minute Battle

Wanderlei Silva seems intent on fighting Chael Sonnen now.

After it seemed as if the on-scheduled fight was off, Silva has issued an intense video message to Sonnen in which he makes it known plans to fight his rival.

However, “The Axe Murderer” doesn’t want the contest taking place in a co-main event slot, as he wants a full five rounds to face him.

“I want a full 30 minutes to punch your face,” Silva said. “With me, it’s face-to-face. I am for real. I don’t say things only for the cameras; I will say it to your face.”

Here’s the complete tirade from Silva:
