Machida to fight Sonnen with one arm

MANILA, Philippines – Former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida called out outspoken mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Chael Sonnen.

Sonnen’s trash talking on Machida’s friend, long time middleweight champion and fellow Brazilian Anderson Silva, didn’t sit well with the Dragon.

"Chael Sonnen, just got out of surgery, but can give you your gift inside the Octagon with one arm and only you accept the fight," Machida was quoted as saying by Yahoo! Sports blog, Cagewriter.

Machida recently lost to reigning light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones.

Sonnen fired back by saying he "doesn't have time for pee-pee mouth," referring to Machida's practice of drinking his own urine.

"All the time I can spare him is the time to cold cock him and walk away," Sonnen added.

Sonnen is set to fight on January 8 in UFC on FOX 2 against Mark “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Munoz.
