Following Antonio Silva's recent taunt aimed at Chael Sonnen on Twitter, Sonnen has taken the time to reply to Silva with a taunt of his own.

Earlier this week, Sonnen tweeted that he would be hosting 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, who has been a victim of Sonnen's words in the past, replied:

@sonnench you will show how to get out of a triangle?

In this tweet, Silva was 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 in the fifth round.

Following this loss, Sonnen was the instigator of 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. 

Soon after, Sonnen was ready with a comeback:

@bigfootsilva, I want to tell you a joke so funny it will make your head grow. It goes like this..Oh wait, I see you have already heard it.

Will Silva have a retort for Chael Sonnen? Or will Sonnen have the last word?
