Wanderlei Silva on Chael Sonnen TRT use: “Maybe he can’t get it up”

Cagewriter

There is little love lost between UFC fighters Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen. Ever since the former Pride champion put Sonnen in his place verbally in a car years ago (video above) for "The American Gangster's" frequent and often bigoted insults of fighters and the nation of Brazil, the two have flamed one of the sport's more heated feuds.

Now, they're coaching opposite one another on the coming next season of The Ultimate fighter: Brazil, and are set to fight one another afterwards at UFC 173. Reports had it that they didn't wait to lock up, however, and actually fought on the set of TUF.

Silva spoke with Brazilian outlet UOL Tuesday about Sonnen and their reality show fight. "The Axe Murderer" maintains that he was in the right and was instigated by Sonnen's actions.

"It was the worst part of the show," Silva said.

"I tell the other guys (on the show) ‘don’t do this and don’t do that,’ but (Sonnen) drives me nuts. I even apologized to the crew, but I’m not meek and mild.

"There are things I can’t handle. The boss [Dana White] likes what it’s fair, he was not upset about it. When they air that on TV, you’ll see that I was right. I did what I had to do."

Silva, of course, didn't limit his criticism of Sonnen to that particular incident. The long-time champion was also critical of Sonnen's use of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), especially after he failed a drug test once before and lied during subsequent athletic commission hearings.

Of Sonnen's hypogonadism and the TRT he uses to treat it and maintain healthy testosterone levels, Silva mockingly said, "If he needs that, what can I say?"

"I thought about using it, but my wife told me she would ask for a divorce, so I said I wouldn’t. People say (Sonnen) only has one ball, so if he has to use it maybe he can’t get it up."

And, that's pretty much where we're at with this feud between Sonnen and Silva. Sonnen has repeatedly taken to twitter and video interviews to insult Silva and apparently urinate on a car with his likeness on it. For his part, Silva has confronted Sonnen directly, in person, several times now.

We've had the talk, had the run-ins and had more than our share of silly tweeting. All that is left now is for the two to square up and fight inside the Octagon.

Who are you rooting for in the finale of this feud? Let us know in the comments section.
