The Anderson Silva that dialed in for a media call promoting UFC 148 was different than any heard before.
The alternately polite, dismissive and non-communicative UFC middleweight champion was replaced by a guy who breathed fire for his opponent before leaving early.
“First of all, Chael is a criminal,” Silva said. “He doesn’t deserve to be inside the octagon. And when the time comes and the time is right, I’m going to break his face and break every one of his teeth in his mouth.”
