Anderson Silva’s Coach: “It’s Vitor Belfort’s time to KO or Submit Sonnen.”

Josuel Distak, the current boxing coach of UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has claimed it’s his former student, Vitor Belfort’s time to face the sports king of trash-talk, Chael Sonnen, to determine who is the real number one contender at 185 pounds.

Distak, speaking via Sherdog.com, said:

“It would be interesting. Their games don’t match, and Vitor has more ways to win. Sonnen does not have the game to beat either Vitor or Anderson. He’s been submitted by three Brazilians: Paulo Filho caught him in an armbar,Demian Maia with a triangle choke and Anderson was the latest. Now, it’s Vitor’s time to knock out or submit Sonnen.”

“It’s absurd to say Anderson is running away, especially after he submitted Sonnen with a broken rib. We haven’t been notified of any fight, but Brazil and the world wishes to see it. If this fight ends up happening, he will hurt Sonnen so badly. It’s up to [UFC President] Dana White to decide the date. If he announces it, Anderson will be there to fight.”
