Anderson Silva: If my rib wasn't broken, I'd have finished Chael Sonnen in the first roundPosted on June 29, 2012, 09:20 AM by Mike Drahota
Hot on the heels of his heated words from the UFC 148 media conference call, UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva shows a rarely seen side of himself in a video from FoxSports.com. Stating that he is ready to go for a big war, he believes that he would have finished Chael Sonnen in the first round at UFC 117 were it not for his broken rib. We have seen endless trash talk from Sonnen leading up to this fight, now we are starting to see more and more from the usually calm and reserved Brazilian champion. UFC 148's main event may be the most anticipated fight in UFC history. The video showcases some of Silva's greatest highlights. There is no doubt that he is one of the greatest fighters to ever step into the Octagon. Does Chael Sonnen have what it takes to destroy a highly motivated and healthy Anderson Silva? We will find out on July 7th, in what promises to be an epic match regardless of the result.
