Things are beginning to heat up for a possible middleweight title match between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen as Silva's manager Ed Soares spoke this week with MMAJunkie.com about Sonnen's recent antics and comments towards Silva and his family.

During a pre-UFC 136 interview with Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen told him “You tell Anderson Silva I'm coming over and I'm kicking down his backdoor and patting his little lady on the ass, and I'm telling her to make me a steak, medium-rare, just how I like it.”.

Soares broke down the situation this week from the champ's point of view:

“First the guy gets in trouble for fraud, then he tests positive for steroids, and now he wants to kick in someone's door and slap their wife in the ass? This guy should be in jail; he shouldn't be fighting.”

“Chael is not the person that's going to determine when [Silva] is going to take the fight. When he's going to take this fight is when his shoulder is completely healed up, and he's ready to start his training camp for the fight.

“It's not because Chael says he wants to fight in February. Who is Chael to determine that? Chael needs to take a number and wait his turn. He got his opportunity, and he tapped. It's not the first time he's tapped, and I guarantee you it won't be the last.”
