Despite having the biggest match up of his career coming up this weekend when he faces Anderson Silva at UFC 148, Chael Sonnen still found some time leading up to the fight to discuss two of his other middleweight division counterparts in Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva and didn't pull any punches.

Check what Sonnen had to say about the former Champions(via MMAFighting.com):

“Vitor Belfort pulls out of more fights than he agrees to. He's fantastic, but he's such a chicken and he's such a liar. To say you're going to fight, to sell tickets, to sign your name, to film the TV show, and then to pull out? Against an invalid? That's insane. It's shocking they're able to say that with a straight face. My opinion of Wanderlei is constantly evolving, because as atrocious as he is skills-wise, he shows up and fights. He goes hard in spite of the lack of talent and gives the fans his best…. Vitor's a dork, but he's a tough fighter, man. I really think he's an excellent fighter.”
