Chael Sonnen did not disappoint fans at the UFC Fight Night Q & A this week. If you think the UFC 117 loss humbled Chael Sonnen, well you would be mistaken. Sonnen unleashed insults on everyone from Anderson Silva, GSP, and even Brock Lesnar in the video.
It was at a Q & A back in June where Chael Sonnen put himself on the map. Chael Sonnen answered questions from fans and ripped Anderson Silva to shreds. The video soon went viral on You Tube and in the blogosphere and all of the sudden a match not many people cared about seeing turned into one of the most anticipated UFC fights of the year.
Here are just a few Chael Sonnen classics from the Q & A
On Anderson Silva, –“He’s not as good as Yuskin Okami, he’s a sham.” “Who has he fought that’s supposed to be so impressive?” (You Chael?)
“Machida beat him up in practice and now all of the sudden he and Machida are buddies. This is a scam.”
On Georges St. Pierre – “He’d take me down a total of zero times and I’d take him down every time I wanted to.” “Bring your $3,000 suit, bring your $3 date, and get the $0.03 tan beat off your socialist back.”
On Wanderlei Silva – “He used to be a fighter.”
Chael Sonnen turned himself into a real fan favorite with his outspoken remarks towards Anderson Silva leading up to UFC 117. It will be interesting to see if UFC fans start getting turned off by the pro wrestling trash talking and turn on Chael Sonnen just as quick as they embraced him.
