Despite two fights worth of Chael Sonnen trash talking, it seems Anderson Silva still thinks very highly of his former rival.
“Chael talk too much, but is a good guy,” Silva said on a recent interview with Whoa! TV. “He’s not bad, he’s a good guy. Chael is [always] in the media for fight. Chael fight for the belt against me two times. Chael fight Jon Jones, Chael fought Shogun, Chael fight now. Chael is working for Dana White all the time. Dana don’t need to talk nothing because Chael is working all the time. It’s normal. Chael talk.”
Silva’s positive outlook on Sonnen may be a good omen for TUF: Brazil 3. Sonnen has previously stated that he’d like to bring “The Spider” on board his coaching team when he goes up against Wanderlei Silva next year.
