Fans have waited four long days for Chael Sonnen (pictured), MMA’s most articulate smack talker, to address Saturday’s confrontation with Wanderlei Silva at the Olympia Expo in Las Vegas. Sonnen said he would discuss the situation during this week’s edition of “UFC Tonight,” and true to his word, Sonnen kicked off tonight’s show by calling Silva out on his “publicity stunt.” “I’m all for him having a little fun, but a little advice: if you’re going to do a publicity stunt, do not bring your own camera, it looks staged. It insults your audience,” Sonnen stated. “Accosting a gangster can be hazardous. If you want to have a conventional interview, we at ‘UFC Tonight’ will pay your way to come on the show.” ‘Thanks, but no thanks,’ is likely what Silva’s thought bubble reads. “The Axe Murderer” knows full well Sonnen used to walk the mean streets of West Linn. Silva and Sonnen have been exchanging pleasantries for years, with Uncle Chael turning up the heat an extra notch since he submitted Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in August. However, Silva will be out until early 2014 with a back injury so the inevitable shootout will have to wait for now. Sonnen, meanwhile, co-headlines UFC 167 against Rashad Evans on November 16. Just in case you missed it, here’s the video Silva released from Saturday’s confrontation:
