UFC 117 Preview: Chael Sonnen Is Doing His Best To Hype This Fight With Anderson Silva On Twitter

New, 2 comments

I know we have several UFC events coming up before Chael Sonnen will face Anderson Silva.  However, it appears that Sonnen is doing his best to build some bad blood between himself and the 'Spider'.  So much that he's using his twitter account to lauch venom more frequently now.  Check it as it all began on April 7th:

Does anybody have the Maia/Silva press conf clip? I'm wide awake and out of Nyquil. Listening to them should do the trick.

Then on May 26th:

Anderson, you are going to be on your back more than a pornstar with a mortgage.

May 30th:

A.S. Your run is T- 70 days. I'm not a math teacher from Ohio, I'm a gangster from Oregon. Talk is cheap, it takes money to buy whiskey.

Today he took aim at Silva's manager Ed Soares:

Ed, pray to whatever Demon effigy you prance and dance in front of with your piglet tribe of savages that I decide not to CRUCIFY you.

For those thinking he's just doing this for Anderson Silva, it's nothing new as he was talking smack to Nate Marquardt before their fight as well. Check it:

Nate doesn't have enough shiny trinkets or horse blankets to get into this POW WOW. He's going to be known as, "Chief go home Lumpy."

I'd have to say he called the correct on that one.  I wonder how his fight with the Anderson Silva will turn out for him?
