BlackHouse responds to Sonnen's challenge

Quote:
“First the guy gets in trouble for fraud, then he tests positive for steroids, and now he wants to kick in someone’s door and slap their wife in the ass? This guy should be in jail; he shouldn’t be fighting. Chael is not the person that’s going to determine when [Silva] is going to take the fight. When he’s going to take this fight is when his shoulder is completely healed up, and he’s ready to start his training camp for the fight. It’s not because Chael says he wants to fight in February. Who is Chael to determine that? Chael needs to take a number and wait his turn. He got his opportunity, and he tapped. It’s not the first time he’s tapped, and I guarantee you it won’t be the last. Would it be a big fight? It would be a huge fight, but right now, it’s not so much who he’s going to fight and when. It’s making sure Anderson gets back to 100 percent before he gets in there.”

The above quote comes way of an interview with Anderson Silva’s manager, Ed Soares that was recently conducted by mmajunkie.com.

With Chael’s most recent dig to Anderson Silva in front of a sold out arena and live television audience, the Brazilian champions manager expresses their dislike for the proposed challenger and unwillingness to abide to his terms just on the notion that he offered them.

With Dan Henderson lurking around the corner and also lobbying for a rematch with Anderson Silva, and the bargaining chips falling in the hands of the Brazilians management team, could Chael Sonnen have talked himself out of a signed contract?

The UFC can make any match they want, they can make the calls, set the date and venue and print the contracts up for the fighters to sign, but ultimately Anderson Silva is the one who has to execute the bout agreement and make the fight official. Would the ultimate stab at Chael Sonnen be to delay his title aspirations in favor for another fight?

Just a thought… What’s yours?

More than likely, Chael trolled himself into another title fight, but I think he needs another fight. He's been on a long lay off and beating Brian Stann, who's a favorable matchup for him, shouldn't earn him a shot. That said, it wouldn't bother me at all if Sonnen's next fight is Silva, but I don't think he deserves it after one fight.

While I dislike Sonnen as much as the next guy it is really starting to look like Silva's camp is trying to avoid fighting Sonnen. It must bother them that someone was able to perform that well against Silva when nobody else has even come close.

To me it should bother Anderson Silva that he was losing that fight and he should be just as anxious for a rematch as Sonnen is.

Way easier to sell a Sonnen vs. Silva rematch than a Hendo vs Silva rematch. Chael came much, much closer to winning than Dan did, and we know Chael will sell the fight better than Dan, too.

My initial thought when Sonnen said Superbowl weekend was that he was trying to get The Spider to fight before he is completely healed. I'm glad Soares saw this too, and will likely ask for a later date so Silva can get in a full healthy training camp.

He already finished him he doesn't have anything else to prove. Hopefully Andy refuses to fight him because he doesn't deserve a title shot for out grappling Brian Stann.

I just thought of something...two things may happen.

1.) Superbowl weekend rematch

OR

Blackhouse is going to wait it out til Anderson heals up 100% which means Chael will be booked another fight with Vitor Belfort cuz I know "The Phenom" wants to step up to the plate to take him out. That would be a brilliant tactical move by not giving the loudmouth what he wants...

*Note* He fought against him injured already and we all seen what happened.

Did you read the article? Silva is INJURED, simple as that. Get over it. He's not dodging anyone. When has silva ever taken a fight and dropped out of it cause he was injured? Nada. Silva is not a dodger, and honestly, he deserves to be able to hand pick his opponents.
