Chael Sonnen actually gives Anderson Silva a little credit

It wasn’t the straight-forward “best in the business”-based comment Anderson Silva is used to, but during a recent press conference for UFC 148, Chael Sonnen actually extended a bit of politeness Silva’s way.

When asked to describe Silva’s legacy, Sonnen offered up a different side of himself – at least in the beginning.

“His record speaks for himself. He’s good; he’s a durable fighter. He’s the champion,” Sonnen said before adding, “But I am the best. And there can be only one. He’s a martial artist, I’m a cage fighter.”

UFC President Dana White was far more complimentary of Silva, calling the talented Brazilian, “The best ever. He is still the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world.”

This Saturday night’s main event meeting will mark a rematch two years in the making, as Sonnen looks to avenge a 2010 submission defeat at the hands of “The Spider.” Sonnen was winning the first encounter, dominating Silva by taking him to the ground and landing well over 300 punches, kicks and elbows. However, with just two-plus minutes left, Silva locked on a Triangle Choke-Armbar combination forcing the tap.
