Chael Sonnen’s promos leading up to UFC 117 have been arguably the best UFC interviews since Ken Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz. Chael Sonnen has single-handedly turned a forgettable fight into one of the most anticipated UFC fights of the year. Sadly, this Chael Sonnen video will probably last longer than his fight against Anderson Silva at UFC 117.
If you are watching this and thinking to yourself that there is a little bit of a pro wrestling influence here, you are right. Chael Sonnen grew up in Oregon and I don’t think there is any coincidence to the fact that he sounds a lot like Roddy Piper. I don’t know how big of a pro wrestling fan Chael Sonnen is, but he was a big enough fan to have tried out at the WCW Power Plant several years ago. For the record, Sonnen passed the tryout.
It was nice knowing you Chael.
