“He’s a big fan of yours”: Sonnen and Silva shower praise on each other in act of mutual respect

Chael Sonnen and Anderson Silva perhaps share one of the greatest rivalries in the history of UFC. However in an interesting turn of events, they were seen in a conversation with each other on Sonnen’s Youtube channel.

In the interview with Silva, ‘The American Gangster’, said that he found Silva’s move to boxing ‘crazy’.  

“Well, Anderson, I’ll leave you with this. I agree with those people. I also think that you’re crazy, but I also think I also think you’re going to win. I think you’re going to beat him.”

Sonnen further added, “I think this is something you’ve wanted to do. I’m not sure he knows fully what he’s getting into. That is my opinion. I wish you the best of luck. Let’s catch up again down the road. Thank you for your time champ.”

Silva later mentioned offering to train Sonnen’s son in Los Angeles. “No, thank you so much for you give us this opportunity Chael. And I know your son started training. You know when I have time when you stay in your LA. Oh, and when you have time, just come in I go help your son to train,” Silva said.

“I appreciate that. And he’s actually right here. He’s oh, now he’s nervous. You wanna say hi to Anderson? I won’t do that another now. He got shy he’s actually a big fan of yours.

“He- I very much appreciate that offer. And I know that you meant it. Oh, he’s now he’s running out. He’s going to his mom,” 

Even though the duo’s battles are ranked as the best fights in the UFC’s history, their relationship getting mollified makes it even greater for the fans to celebrate.
