Just wrapped up the UFC 117 conference call with Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. Not sure who will win the fight on Aug. 7 just yet, but Sonnen definitely won the conference call battle.

Silva chose not to engage Sonnen and his smack talking, so we'll just give you a few of Sonnen's greatest hits here, and then you can read more on my Twitter account at

"There's never been a guy with earrings that can out-tough me, and he's not the first."

"I'm gonna take his belt on August 7th, and Dana is gonna fire him on August 8th."

"I could drag Anderson Silva outside the hotel and beat him up anytime I want. I've made a committment to do it Aug. 7."
