Antonio Silva has been one of many fighters that have been targeted by Chael Sonnen's anti-Brazilian taunts and jibes, and now Silva has found an opportunity to take a jab at Sonnen via Twitter.

Yesterday, Sonnen notified his followers and fans that he will be holding an MMA seminar in the near future: "I will be doing a seminar at Team Quest in Redding, Ca. on Sept 11th at 9:30am. All are welcome. Join in, or just watch."

Silva, quick to reply, retorted with this: "@sonnench you will show how to get out of a triangle?"

Silva is referring to Sonnen's less than stellar submission defense; Sonnen has lost eight fights by submission and four of those have come by a triangle choke. Most recently, he tapped out to a triangle choke against Anderson Silva at UFC 117, late into the fifth round.

After suffering this loss, Sonnen engaged in a war of words against Anderson Silva and his training camp, Black House MMA/Team Nogueira, a camp which Antonio Silva had recently become a member of. He also went as far as to take jabs at the nation of Brazil, which drew the ire of many Brazilian fighters and fans.

Will Chael Sonnen have a retort for Antonio Silva?
