The ongoing rivalry between Wanderlei Silva (35-12-1 (1nc) and Chael Sonnen (29-13-1, pictured) continued recently when the pair clashed over the weekend at the Olympia Expo, which was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The UFC veterans engaged in a war of words and while it’s unclear what triggered the confrontation, or whether it was just some elaborate set up to fuel the feud, things certainly got pretty heated.

The “Axe Murderer” Wandlei Silva later posted a video, which contains footage of the incident, where he gave his thoughts on Sonnen and a future matchup which looks almost a certainty to take place later on down the line. You can check out Wanderlei’s video below.


Silva doesn’t have a fight booked at the moment, while Sonnen has a November 16th clash with Rashad Evans (20-3-1)  lined up. Whatever the outcome in the Evans matchup, it’s looking likely that Sonnen and Silva may finally put an end to their ongoing feud, sometime in 2014.

UFC President Dana White gave his thoughts on the recent clash between Silva and Sonnen, stating;

“As long as they don’t exchange punches or get into a fight outside of the octagon, they can say whatever they want about each other”
