The odds of Chael ko'ing Silva with a slam on the concrete after he gets out of the van would be better than Wand knocking him out from the back seat imo.
The van is moving, that should give Silva a little time, right?
And frankly I was talking about what Sonnen was probably thinking, not what is necessarily going to happen. For a guy like Sonnen, being stuck with a power puncher with no room to execute a takedown really is probably the second to worst case scenario to being in Demian Maia's guard.
But really I don't think he'd talk shit either way, so whether it was out of being scared or not is kind of academic. Sonnen doesn't like to do his shit talk off the cuff, and rarely in person. Like I said, it's more about promotional value, he doesn't actually mean any of this shit and has no real beef with any of these people. He doesn't have a very flashy style so for him this is a good way to stand out.
