Chael Sonnen Continues Crusade Against Anderson Silva, Black House At Friday's Q & A

Chael Sonnen is one of the more renowned trash-talkers in MMA, so it should come as no surprise that his question-and-answer session with fans before Friday's UFC 133 weigh-ins quickly turned into a deluge of quips and one-liners.

During the hour-long session, Sonnen appeared to be in rare form, riffing on a myriad of subjects tossed out from the audience. Still, the conversation usually winded back to his ongoing war of words with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. The 34-year-old American referred to his previous fight with Silva as "the night when I won the middleweight championship," and explained that "triangle chokes are the refuge of cowards."

Sonnen further pushed the discussion by taking the fight to Silva's camp -- Black House -- calling the camp "the bowels of society", while proclaiming that he "will personally burn Black House down." As for the future, the middleweight refused to mince words when asked if he would rather face Silva or Yushin Okami for the title, unabashedly stating, "It doesn't matter, I am the UFC champion."
