Paulo borrachinha did not hide his frustration when evaluating the boxing match between Anderson Silva e Chael Sonnen. In an interview with 'MMA fighting', the UFC middleweight (up to 83,9kg.) was tough when expressing his opinion on the veterans' performance in the ring. The athlete even questioned fans' interest in the former stars of the largest MMA organization in the world.

“Horrible fight. They were very bad. Not even in sparring (training) is it that easy. I think Sonnen did the right thing, because he's not fighting anymore, he doesn't want to fight anymore. He is a commentator and is doing well in that job. Anderson is looking for fights, but now how can people buy his next fights in Abu Dhabi or Saudi Arabia? Nobody wants to see you anymore, because you can’t do that,” said Borrachinha.
