UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva typically does his talking inside the Octagon. However, “The Spider” recently showed his fangs are full of venom when it comes to his fight on July 7 at UFC 148 against Chael Sonnen. The two talented rivals were both participants in a conference call with media earlier today where Silva broke form and laid into Sonnen.
“Playtime is over. The joke is over. I’m gonna beat his ass out of the UFC. He’s never gonna want to fight again after I’m done with him,” said Silva through his translator. “What I’m gonna do inside the Octagon is going to change the image of the sport. I’m gonna make sure every one of his teeth are broken – his arms are broken, his legs are broken.”
“I’m gonna make him pay and make him eat everything he said…I’m gonna beat him maybe the way his parents should have beat him to teach him some manners,” he concluded on Sonnen.
Silva’s scrap with Sonnen is one of the year’s most anticipated sporting events given their history. The fierce foes first locked horns in 2010 where Silva narrowly escaped with his title in toe, submitting Sonnen in the final frame of a fight he was losing on the judges’ scorecards. Since then Sonnen has heaped countless insults on Silva and his fellow Brazilians.

MMATraining Take: The audio of Silva is nuts! I don’t speak Portuguese but Silva’s anger was clear. If Silva-Sonnen 2 needed any more hype it now has it. Even Dana White was shocked at how upset Silva was.
