So Now Chael Doesn't Want Wandy...

Not really sure what his angle is here. Maybe he realized no one wants to hear him trash talk a legend. I mean it's all fun and games when your taking shots at the current champs, but taking shots at Wandy is kinda weak. then again Sonnen had no problem ripping into Big Nog and some other big names.

Maybe Sonnen is getting offered something better?

Is he being honest or is this just another angle? Chael Sonnen is now stating that the time has passed for a possible bout with Wanderlei Silva. The bout, rumored to be the main event of UFC's first Fox Sports event in Boston later in the year, might or might not be a legitimate option for the UFC. But Sonnen stated in an interview with MMA Heat's Karyn Bryant that he's not interested anymore:

"I'm not looking for it anymore, I don't like to bully guys. I tried to fight him, he doesn't want to fight. I'm not gonna stick a finger in a guy's chest. If a guy says 'no,' I'm not gonna be a jerk about it."

Silva claimed last week that the UFC hasn't offered him the bout, but he is also the guy that played an elaborate April Fools prank on fans, media, and Gegard Mousasi last month. They're both good at playing games, so it could just be another way to toy with some emotions.

I think the bout will happen, and it will happen in Boston. And it should be pretty entertaining.

I think it is what it is.

If they offer him the fight he would take it. But constantly asking for it and it not happening is just foolish on his part. He let his desire for the fight known so its up to the UFC now imo.

It's not that he doesn't want the fight. It's that he threw it out there, and now it's up to the UFC.

I swear he said those exact words about Anderson before they fought again. This fight is not off.

am i the only one that would rather see Vitor vs Chael? Battle of testosterone? As all of Chael's recent defeats have came at the hands of champions, I dont drop his stock value very much. Vitor has lost to the same 2 champs. It makes since right?

dont get me wrong, id watch Chael vs Wandy all day long. Wandy will come out like a ball of aggression and Chael will have to get him to the ground. fun for everyone.

Wanderlei is done , its a waste of time fight.

Sonnen at this point in his career should be fighting bigger fish.

if the fight was to happen it would be like Evans Vs Ortiz POINTLESS.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Wanderlei would end Chael's life.

Notice the use of the word 'Bully'

He's implying that he can bully Wandy but chooses not too.

Its psychological, Wandy will either say nothing about, but more likely he'll retort the comment. Thus a war of words will break out which will hype the fight and net Chael another big pay day.
