In last night's UFC Fight Night main event, Chael Sonnen shocked UFC fans around the globe with his dominant victory over Shogun Rua. This video, which apparently shows Wanderlei Silva's reaction to the fight, was no exception. Fast forward to about the 5:15 mark to see the final moments.

Chael Sonnen called out Wanderlei in epic fashion after his submission of the night victory, but this isn't the first time he's tried to pick this fight. In addition to his poetry references for the last 18 days, he also tried to get Wandy to bite before the main event at FOX Sports 1 was signed.

In last night's post-fight press conference, Sonnen certainly entertained.

"Wanderlei drives me insane. Wanderlei Silva tells the media he wants to fight me. I would love to fight Wanderlei. Wanderlei insists that fight has never been offered. That's been a big marquee fight for years — to believe he hasn't been offered that fight is ridiculous, and it pisses me off. All I need for him is to say he doesn't want to do it, then I'm out. I'm not a bully, and I'm not going to pick on him — but if he continues to say it, he's going to continue to get me to respond."

Dear Joe Silva,

Make this fight happen.
