The awaited rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen is coming close. And, among millions of people who don’t want to miss the bout, is Wanderlei Silva. “The Axe Murderer”, who lives in Las Vegas, will be in town for watching UFC 148, next Saturday (7th).

Not measuring any words, Wanderlei Silva, who has cornered Chael Sonnen in a van, affirmed, on an interview with TATAME, that he’s excited to see Spider beating him up with spices of cruelty.

“I hope Anderson does a great job representing us and I actually wish he doesn’t knock him out fast. I’d like him to punish Sonnen and smash him out for me and for all Brazilians. I guess he went too far and he deserves to be punished. I hope that Anderson not only wins, but punches him a lot”.

Last week, Wanderlei Silva followed Anderson’s statements about breaking Sonnen’s teeth and complimented the performance of the middleweight title holder.

“I guess the champ’s star is going to shine. He’s very prepared and one of Anderson’s best skills is to train. He trains a lot. I guess he’s one great example for new fighters. He’s doing fine, he’s the champion, he’s rich and he’s training more than ever. He’s a perseverance example for everybody and I hope he smashes Sonnen on the behalf of all of us”.
