It’s no secret Chael Sonnen has been relentlessly sounding off on Anderson Silva for months now, dropping all kinds of notable quotables week after week, since Silva’s questionable performance against Demian Maia at UFC 112. Amidst all the smack talking that Sonnen’s been doing, he’s undoubtedly dropped more than a couple of zingers as of late, including this beauty:
“He’s a grown man with earrings. He’s a grown man with saggy pants, pink t-shirts and crooked hats. Go join a gang, don’t get in the UFC.”
Despite keeping relatively silent this whole time with respect to Sonnen’s smack talking bonanza, “The Spider” retaliated in his own right during yesterday’s pre-fight press conference by living up to Sonnen’s style assessment and sporting, of all things, a pink sweater, baggy pants, crooked backwards baseball cap and earrings (indirect translation: “F-you Chael Sonnen”). All of this topped off with one of the most intense (almost uncomfortable) post-presser photo sessions in UFC history. Bottom line, it’s going to get mighty interesting when the cage door slams shut on August 7th, 2010.
