Default Wanderlei Silva rips Chael Sonnen over TRT use

From MMAFighting.com (By Guilherme Cruz on Feb 19 2014, 9:00a):
The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 has yet to air, but the season already sounds epic.

Long-time rivals Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen served as coaches on the reality show, which airs in March on Fight Pass, and will battle inside the Octagon on May 31 in Brazil. Right after the end of the taping in Sao Paulo, Silva spoke to the media and explained why he fought Sonnen during the reality show.

"It was the worst part of the show," Silva told the media on Tuesday. "I tell the other guys (on the show) Ďdonít do this and donít do that,í but (Sonnen) drives me nuts. I even apologized to the crew, but Iím not meek and mild.

"There are things I canít handle. The boss (Dana White) likes what itís fair, he was not upset about it. When they air that on TV, youíll see that I was right. I did what I had to do."

And Silva decided to add more fuel to the fire, joking about Sonnen's need for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).

"If he needs that, what can I say?" Silva said with a laugh. "I thought about using it, but my wife told me she would ask for a divorce, so I said I wouldnít. People say (Sonnen) only has one ball, so if he has to use it maybe he canít get it up."
Sonnen is 1-3 in his last four fights, but his only win in 2013 was against Silvaís former teammate Mauricio Rua.

"(Sonnen) is a good athlete, I canít underestimate him, but he didnít beat the real Shogun," he said. "Shogun gave him the neck. We canít use that fight as a parameter.

"He showed who he really is against Rashad (Evans). He goes in there wanting to quit. When I push him, his spirit will want to go back home."

Silva has never been submitted in 49 professional fights, and doesnít plan to try defending Sonnenís takedowns on May 31.

"Iíll focus on training the game from the bottom, to sweep (him) and get on top," he said. "I wonít train too much on my takedown defense. If he takes me down, Iíll attack to submit or sweep."
