By now, you have probably seen the “infamous” Wanderlei Silva-Chael Sonnen video from a recent incident concerning the two fighters.
Really, it’s hardly watchable, as the filming is down-right second-class and nothing of note happens.
However, UFC president Dana White was asked his thoughts on it during a recent media event in Brazil, and he didn’t let back when talking about Silva.
“The guy’s name is the (expletive) ‘Axe Murderer,’” White said. “What do you expect? This is the way he is.
“Brazilians are very proud people. He’s always had a beef with Chael.”
White added that “as long as they don’t exchange punches or get into a fight outside of the Octagon, they can say whatever they want.”
It appeared they were poised to finally settle their score later this year, but Silva remains unable to train due to an injury. Sonnen has since signed on to face Rashad Evans.
