Chael Sonnen's lobbying for a fight against Anderson Silva has seemed to fall on deaf ears as Silva has yet to accept Sonnen's ongoing challenges.
Sonnen himself appears to be growing tired of no reaction from Silva and while on ESPN radio this week, he talked about what his plans for the future will be if Silva doesn't eventually take the fight:
“As it played that through my head, I saw a lot of different outcomes, but not in a million years did I think (Anerson Silva going silent) would happen,” Chael Sonnen told ESPN1100/98.9 FM in Las Vegas this week.
“That is not the heritage of a Brazilian fighter or a Brazilian man in general. Brazilians will fight. Brazilians will come forward with courage. If you challenge them, they will step forward. That's not in his culture or his heritage to just sit there and get clowned in front of the world, but he did it.”
“The fight's going to happen for sure. I'll be Anderson's next fight. I don't know that he'll be mine.”
“I'm not going to sit around and wait for him ,,, I don't just need the title, I need to be the best fighter in the world. If there's someone who can knock me off and beat me then I don't deserve to be there. So god bless them and let that guy have his shot.”
