“The Axe Murderer” Wanderlei Silva has responded to Chael Sonnen’s challenge in a rather intense and spooky video posted on the ‘wandfightteam’ YouTube page.
With Sonnen issuing the challenge to the Brazilian following his first round submission win over his teammate and friend Mauricio “Shogun” Rua on Saturday night, most expected the rest to be a formality. However, Dana White’s admission that the fight may not happen due to Wanderlei asking for a cut of the PPV revenue had given fans the impression that Silva was looking for a way out.
However if this video is anything to go by, then “The Axe Murderer” wants nothing more than a chance to finally shut Sonnen up once and for all. He even wants to make it a five round main event.
