When you’ve known someone for a long time, surprises come few and far between. But Anderson Silva’s fiery demeanor on today’s UFC 148 conference call got the attention of the organization’s president, Dana White, media listening in and the social media world.
“I’ve never heard him talk like this,” White remarked.
Silva was absolutely livid when asked about what–if any–strengths his upcoming opponent, Chael Sonnen has in their highly anticipated rematch.
“It doesn’t matter if I’m on the bottom, side or top,” Silva responded when asked how he’ll avoid a takedown.
It got worse from there.
“Chael is going to get his ass kicked like he’s never been beaten before. I’m going to make sure that every one of his teeth are broken. He’s not going to be able to walk out of the Octagon by himself. I can guarantee that. The game’s over, no more shit talking it’s on now.”
UFC 148 takes place Saturday, July 7.
