Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira anxious to see Anderson Silva destroy Chael Sonnen

Despite being a in a different weight class, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira has been the butt of Chael Sonnen‘s jokes. So, when UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva finally snapped and went off on Sonnen, “Big Nog” was excited to see the fire be ignited under “The Spider.”

Silva and Sonnen are set to square off Saturday night in the main event of UFC 148. Nogueira, meanwhile, will remain on the sidelines to recover from a broken arm, with his return date unknown. However, that didn’t stop the heavyweight legend from discussing Sonnen during an interview with TATAME.

“The guy’s disrespectful,” said Nogueira of Sonnen. “He’s a tough fighter, a super athlete, but his kind of fight doesn’t sell. Where he gets his popularity from? Talking.”

Nogueira remembers all of the things Sonnen has said about, “countries, the athlete, Anderson’s wife, the way he dresses,” and believes those statements pushed Silva over the edge.

While conducting a conference call, Silva claimed he will be leaving Sonnen broken and battered while changing the way people view the sport after he is done demolishing his challenger.

    I certainly hope he destroys Sonnen. For whatever reason I just don’t like the guy and hope he eats his words.

    You ain’t kidding.

    I just want to see Sonnen get cracked or tap. It will be even more glorious If he once again pisses hot and still loses.
