Anderson Silva recently spoke in a conference call about his upcoming bout with Chael Sonnen at UFC 148 and more. Check out the highlights:
On Sonnen: "First of all, Chael is a criminal. He's been convicted of crimes. He doesn't deserve to be inside the octagon. And when the time comes and the time is right, I'm going to break his face and break every one of his teeth in his mouth."
On his narrow win over Sonnen at UFC 117: "People who live in the past, and things that are in the past, are in museums. Right now, I'm focused on what's going to happen in the next few weeks, and right now, playtime is over. I'm going to beat Chael like he's never been beaten before. The joke is over. There's no more talking. I know he's on the line listening, and the game is over. I'm going to beat his ass out of the UFC. He's never going to want to fight again after I'm done with him."
On how he'll do things differently from the last fight: "It doesn't matter if I'm on the bottom, the side, the top – it doesn't matter. Chael Sonnen's going to get his ass kicked like he's never gotten his ass kicked before. What I'm going to do inside the octagon is something that's going to change the image of the sport. I'm going to beat his ass like he's never been beaten before. I'm going to make sure that every one of his teeth are broken, his arms are broken, (and) his legs are broke. He's not going to be able to walk out of the octagon by himself. I can guarantee that. And I know that he's listening, so the game's over. No more [expletive]-talking. It's on now."
On wanting to make Sonnen pay for all his trash talk: "I"m going to make him eat everything that he's said, not only about myself, but about our country (and) about everything. I'm going to make him pay and make sure he never disrespects any fighter. Not only Brazilian, but any fighter. I'm going to beat him maybe the way his parents should have beat him to teach him some manners. Because he's disrespectful, he's a criminal, and I'm going to beat him up like he's never been beat before. He can say whatever he wants, but I'm not playing anymore."
White on Silva's comments during the conference call: "I've promoted every Anderson Silva fight since he's been in the UFC, and I've never heard him talk even remotely like this. He usually doesn't say anything negative (or) disrespectful. I've never heard Anderson Silva talk like this."
