Wanderlei Silva 034 Pride-478x270The every-growing feud between Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen has once again reared it’s ugly head.

The two have been in each other’s face for years, ever since Silva confronted Sonnen over comments he made about then-UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and his Brazilian heritage.

In recent months, a fight between the two in the Octagon has become a real possibility. Sonnen has been angling for the fight at every turn, while Silva continues to say he wants the fight as well, and more for personal than professional reasons.

Silva, however, last fought in March when he defeated Brian Stann, and has been sidelined recently with an injury. He isn’t expected to return to the Octagon until the beginning of 2014, which has kept any fight with Sonnen — at least in the cage — on the sidelines.

The two have continued taking shots at each other at almost every turn in interviews, on Twitter, on YouTube, and any other available venue.

The latest altercation came on Saturday when Silva sought out Sonnen at the Mr. Olympia festivities in Las Vegas, video camera and security crew in tow.

The exchange didn’t last but a few seconds, numerous members of each man’s camp, holding them back as they slung schoolyard threats at each other on a convention room floor full of vendors.

In the end, little came of the incident, other than a video full of threats and promises from Silva to Sonnen, such as, “Everything you said about me will have a payback.”

There is a personal distaste for one another that is extremely evident, but don’t discard the fact that both Silva and Sonnen are savvy purveyors of their professions. Whether their feud runs as deep as they portray or not, a fight between the two appears inevitable once both men are concurrently healthy enough to fight.
