    Wanderlei Silva calls Chael Sonnen a racist: 'He doesn’t deserve our respect'
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/4/22...onnen-a-racist

    Chael Sonnen is surprisingly becoming the good guy during The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3, but Wanderlei Silva wants to get his fellow Brazilians to support him at UFC 175.

    Since the beginning of the reality show, Silva has demanded Sonnen apologize for all the bad things he has said in the past about Brazil, but the American fighter always declined. Less than 30 percent of 60 thousand fans plan to cheer for Silva after his assistant Andre Dida punched Sonnen during the infamous brawl at the reality show, according to a poll from Brazilian website UOL.

    Silva wants the support back, and he’s using Sonnen’s quotes against Brazil to get it. In his most recent Instagram post, Silva showed an interview that Sonnen gave to MMA Fighting in 2012.

    Right after a submission victory over Brian Stann at UFC 136, Sonnen had this to say about the possibility of fighting Anderson Silva in Brazil.

    "If they sell 100,000 tickets I hope they put them in a nice ball, turn them sideways and shove them straight up their a--, that’s what they can do with the Brazilian crowd."
    In his post, Silva called Sonnen a "racist," explaining that his actions during the show were fueled by Sonnen’s previous statements.

    "This guy is a racist and he doesn’t deserve our respect," Silva wrote on his Instagram page. "I wouldn’t be mad (at him) if I had no reasons to be. This is just one of the things he said about us.

    "Now, if you want to cheer for him be my guest, you deserve my respect," Silva wrote. "I don’t agree with him and I think we should be united this time. We’re stronger together."
    Originally planned to take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 31, Silva vs. Sonnen match-up was moved to UFC’s show in Las Vegas, Nev., on July 5, after the Brazilian got injured in the brawl with Sonnen.

    Chael Sonnen on TRT ban: ‘My panic is going away, and I'm seeing some optimism’
    "I do feel a little bit different but I feel very encouraged with the new path we're taking," Sonnen told Fox Sports. "I'm feeling more positive than panicked. At first, I felt panic. My panic is going away, and I'm seeing some optimism, but I'm not through it yet."

    Sonnen also divulged into his reasons for calling out former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin. He gave a classic "bad guy" statement, which included a detailed storyline where he would have been champion years ago had Franklin given him a shot at the title. Now out for revenge, Sonnen hopes to get the marquee match-up with the former math teacher, who has just one fight left on his UFC contract.

    "Here the bottom line: Rich Franklin has one fight left. I would've been world champion. Way back when Rich held that belt, I would've whipped his ass back then. I would've been the world champion but I couldn't get my opportunity, and I'm still mad about it. I would've been the PRIDE champion but I couldn't get into PRIDE. I could've beaten all of those guys for years. I could've held the belt in either organization for years, and I couldn't even get my shot.

    "So, if Rich only has one fight left, if there's anybody that disputes what I just said, including him; if there's anybody that questions that Chael Sonnen was the greatest 185-pounder to ever live, then please, Mr. Franklin, give me that one last fight that you have under your contract."

    UFC 175: Wanderlei Silva blames TUF editing for painting him the 'villain' and Chael Sonnen 'the good guy'
    According to Silva, it's the editing of the TUF producers that are to blame for painting him as a villain and making Sonnen look like the good guy.

    He explained it all to MMA Fighting:

    "They edited a lot of things, and unfortunately, the production decided to paint me as the villain. But that is not right, because he said horrible things about us, and disrespected me at every moment during filming. This good guy you're watching on television is not how things are for real. He said and did a lot of things that aren't being shown. What was shown on the show is not everything that happened. Behind what happened there is the motives and the reason why I was mad that day. Beside the absurd (things) that he has said about all of us, he had been provoking me and disrespecting me. Right on the first episode, he called me stupid. Not at any moment did I go down to his level."

    This isn't the first time TUF producers have been accused of editing the show in order to vilify a fighter.

    Ronda Rousey had the same issue when she coached opposite Meisha Tate on season 18. That's one of the reasons why "Rowdy" proclaimed that she would never participate in the show again.
