Chael Sonnen has said some crazy things, I mean there is an online quote generator with a bunch of his quotes. This time around he states that if he beats his upcoming opponent Brian Stann at UFC 136, he would like to give up a title shot in order to take on Anderson Silva. This is obviously Sonnen’s tongue in cheek way of saying that Yushin Okami will defeat Anderson Silva and take his title at UFC 134 this upcoming Saturday.
“Dana [White] and I are at a crossroads. Dana wants this to be a number one contender’s match and wants me to fight for the championship. I don’t have anything against fighting my friend Yushin Okami, who will be the champion by then, but I have unfinished business with Anderson Silva. For me, what I am lobbying for, is win or lose, I will fight Anderson Silva next. Anderson will be working his way back up, or I should say working his way down. I’m going to grab him and beat him up anyway, just for laughs, just on principle. Just for my sheer entertainment, I’m going to go slap that guy around. I don’t need his little tin belt. I’m already the champion. -Chael Sonnen stopped by Bruce Buffer’s “It’s Time” radio show on The Sherdog Radio network. To read more from this interview head over to Sherdog.com
