After a outspoken Anderson Silva promised to break Chael Sonnen’s teeth, arms, and legs earlier this week the UFC middleweight #1 contender finally broke his silence about the threats to ESPN earlier today. It sounds like he isn’t that scared.
“He says he’s going to knock out my teeth and break my jaw and break my head and all this,” Sonnen said. “He acts like I’ve never been to the orthodontist. I’ve fought 49 men, all professionals. He acts like I’ve never had a jaw set before. He acts like I’ve never had my head stapled shut in an emergency room before. Who gives a damn? He can do all those things.” he added. “But one thing he didn’t say is that he’s going to beat me. One thing he didn’t say he’d break is my will. One thing he didn’t say he’d do is win this fight. We’ll be in the middle of a cage stupid; I’d expect you to do those things.”
The two men will step into the Octagon next Saturday in Las Vegas to settle their differences in what will be the most anticipated rematch in the promotion’s history.
