Silva told Ariel Helwani on Fuel TV's UFC Tonight that he believes Sonnen would be wise to keep his mouth shut and get to work on training.

"Chael talks too much," Silva said. "Chael needs to train. No more talk, train. Going to Brazil? Big problem."

Silva gave the interview in English, perhaps another sign that he's hoping to match Sonnen's talk before matching up with him inside the Octagon. But Silva also said that Sonnen isn't going to get under his skin.

"I don't care about Chael Sonnen," Silva said.

To be honest, this Silva-Sonnen talk back and forth is boring now.
Just fight and get it over with, my god.

When I want your advice I'll beat it out of you, Stupid. Now go back to singing to hamburgers and telling Segal he's legit.

I think because our collective last image of Chael Sonnen was a squeaker over Michael Bisping (and Silva's was a humiliation of Okami).

I have faith in Sonnen's trash-talk though. It will probably be what fills our UFC news during their six week layoff between March and April. He will all make us love him or hate him again.

"telling segal he's legit"



If Anderson really wants to piss Chael off, he should come to the cage with Micheal Landsberg from OTR in his corner, Chael might just walk out.

haha

if he fights like he did against Bisping, he won't be beating anything outta anyone. I have no doubt he will be training hard for this rematch but he might just get into his own head and think he's gonna walk through him, kinda like he did against Bisping

if silva wants to piss chael off he'll walk in the octagon with KENNY RICE. i just hope sonnen performs better than he did against bisping. i think both the sonnen and the bisping that fought that night would get KO'D by silva. im still very interested in this fight, especially now that its in brazil.

Sonnen lost a lot of credibility after the Bisping fight. I can see Sonnen getting knocked out very quickly from a flying knee if he runs in with his head down like he did agenst Bisping.

Wise words from a Wise man. Sonnen should take Andersons advice and just SHUT UP! & train for his ass whooping.

I'll always love his trash talk, but his trash talk on Silva is kinda getting boring. With that said, I hope Sonnen wins. I really do LOL.

maybe Sonnen didnt look as great vs Bisping because Bisping has pretty good TDD? it is far superior to Anderson's

Bisping also displayed awesome clinch work against Sonnen, he had him pressed up against the cage alot in the fight and imo was better than Sonnen through the fight in the clinch.

Silva is getting much better at TDD every fight. Watch Okami lose his game in the clinch.

Silva is gonna murder him this time round. I bet the fight will be similar to Silva vs Okami. Anderson will let Sonnen get into the fight then he will toy Sonnen til he gets board then land some special kick or punch to take him out !!!
