The feud between Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen has become bigger than both men now, with Chael Sonnen doing a lion share of the promotional work by stirring the pot in the media for the past few months. He’s really done a tremendous job if you think about it, going as far as to incite fights with Wanderlei, make for on-screen drama and now Chael Sonnen believes that Wanderlei Silva will pull out of their scheduled fight.
This of course comes after some drama as to if Wanderlei had signed the fight contract or not. [source]
“It’s one of those things where, something stinks here,” Sonnen said Tuesday after a sparring session at the Reign MMA gym. “He’s talking more than ever. He’s saying things like ‘Chael better not get hurt’ and ‘Chael better not fall out.’ I’ve never pulled out, ever. If I’m hurt or I’m sick, I just show up. Never do I complain or I pull out. What that’s telling me, he’s going to claim he’s hurt. He’s just doing all these things to tip his hand here, and something stinks and I don’t know what it is, but something’s going on.”
