Chael Sonnen is best known for his epic smack talk and controversial tapouts but he may have truely out done himself in this interview on Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable. Sonnen is seen sporting a fake UFC belt and spouting on about how he is “Undefeated” and the usual Anderson Silva is a “Fraud” schtick. Check out his thoughts on Mike Tyson and who he is going to call out in the ring after he defeats Bisping on this Saturdays UFC on Fox 2.
“A lot of guys can be fighters, but only one can be champion. Maybe I’m wired a little bit differently, but that’s the way it goes. I will correct you. You are wrong,” he said straight-faced. “Well whose [belt] do you propose it is? What do you think, I just woke up and went and took it from him? Of course it’s the belt. It says it right on there. You don’t think the belt would lie, do you? It says ‘UFC middleweight champion,’ on there. The real champion sits before you today, undefeated and undisputed.”

Anderson Silva recently talked with espn.co.uk about if it would be possible for Brazil to hold every title in the UFC.
“I don’t see any Brazilian in conditions to face him, even more so because Brazilians don’t tend to completely study what happens in there, there needs to be more studying done by the Brazilians in that division so that they can understand what really is going on in there.
“But it’s hard for me to say this, because I’m Brazilian and I wish there was a Brazilian with the conditions to beat Jon Jones, but, this is a personal opinion of mine, I don’t see anyone in Brazil that can beat him, at least not for now.” http://www.espn.co.uk/
Although Dana White has recently called Brazil the “New Mecca of martial arts” Silva concedes that no Brazilian at 205 currently has the game plan to take out Jon “Bones” Jones.
