It seems like a lofty goal for a cage fighter who has already tried his hands at politics and not done very well to reach for the highest elected office in the country, but according to Anderson Silva, he believes that Chael Sonnen will be the next President of the United States of America. Now, he was really talking about how Chael does a great job of talking his way into situations that are beneficial for him than anything else, but we can imagine a world where Chael Sonnen is President, right?
“This guy will be the next president of the United States (laughs),” Silva said during an interview to Metro. “He’s smart, political, knows how to promote himself. He’s not an athlete with great results, but he knows how to promote himself. He knows how to use the UFC, and that’s something that many other athletes can’t. He’s very intelligent.”
