MMAartMartial.com | Mixed martial arts veteran Wanderlei Silva has never been much of a Chael Sonnen fan, and the Brazilian MMA legend continues to work towards getting a shot at “The American Gangster.”
The last round of negotiations between the two mixed martial artists went sour when UFC officials refused to give Silva a piece of the pay-per-view revenue. Sonnen is now set to face Rashad Evans at UFC 167.
Wanderlei got into Sonnen’s face at the Mr. Olympia expo, hurling insults and threats at the man who recently choked out one of his close pals, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, at UFC Fight Night 26.
The MMA purist in me feels that there’s no place for pro-rasslin-style fight promotion in mixed martial arts, but I must admit this stuff was funny.
