    Default Sonnen says A Silva speaks perfect English

    "You want me to let you in on a secret, Anderson Silva speaks perfect English. He just has such a low amount of respect for you and all the rest of the media that he pretends he doesn't. I've had conversations with Anderson Silva in perfect English, and on top of that he's so boring to listen to that he and his rocket scientist manager, Ed Soares, who is also about as exciting as watching grass grow, have decided that Ed is better on the mic than Anderson, so just let Ed do the talking."

    "It's quite ironic that all the media comes on and talks about how great this guy is for reasons that are completely un-understandable to me. How great Anderson Silva is, and all of us fighters are in the back going, 'jeez, they're out there massaging his ego, Anderson hates them so much, he pretends he can't understand them,’"

    i doubt it, im sure he speaks decent english although a little different having a one on one convo as opposed to speaking on the mic in front of millions.

    sonnen seems to be a loud mouth who is trying to get some pub off of silvas name. Not the worst idea, although he will be trounced in a few weeks by marquardt.

    I hope MMA doesn't reward this self-created/self-motivated-hype.

    You are talking about Sonnen?

    What's so bad about this? He wants to fight Silva, he had a nice win over Okami recently, and the UFC always rewards people who call people out and talk about them. They love the build up.

    So it might result in him leapfrogging others, but its not like there are a lot of guys in the UFC dying to fight Silva. GSP doesn't want to (even though PJ will say that he does) and Henderson is gone. That just leaves Marquart as the obvious #1 contender. Should Sonnen beat Marquart, I say let it happen. He's as worthy of a title shot as Hardy.

    Barnett also said Fedor can speak English. Other fighters try to say whatever they can; it is weird if Silva is at least conversational and doesn't say anything.

    CL, that is a big IF. I think that Sonnen is going to get stomped by Marquardt, but if Sonnen should beat Nate, Silva will give him a lesson Portuguese that he won't forget..

    Claudale has already begun bulking up, if marquardt gets the next title shot and loses bank on that fight taking place.

    Sonnen would suffer a truly grisly beating at the hands of silva so he should not push to hard for that fight.

    I read it and it sounds as if Sonnen is just goofing with the reporter and not expecting anyone to take him seriously.

    He would take him down, and Silva has lost on the ground before. I'm not saying he'd win, but he knows not to stand with him.

    Marquart is the obvious guy to get a shot; he has the best shot to win even though he didn't do well the first time.
