Oh, that Chael Sonnen… he always comes to interviews prepared and ready to give us new one-liners to post online. Here’s Sonnen’s latest thoughtful commentary on Anderson Silva from an interview he did with Paul Lazenby, in which he states that Silva is a woman who is having period problems:
“I don’t think that treatment for Anderson’s problems is prohibited by the UFC, even right before a match. Some medications are limited, as you know, but Anderson is in a state of medical legitimacy because I don’t think that Midol is prohibited, nor are chocolate or Gerard Butler movies. I have never personally had to deal with his sort of condition, but I feel for him and I really want to see what his top fighting form actually is, since we apparently haven’t seen it yet. I can’t remember the last time that he didn’t say he was hurt for a match, and it’s starting to alienate the fight fans. So he should take care of himself when he’s suffering, or else the public will be stuck with the same unengaging fights and lackluster victories until he either dies or finally hits menopause.”
Sonnen said this in response to a question about banned substances, and I have to grudgingly hand it to him that this does serve to distract the Chuck Liddells and the Joe Warrens among us from Sonnen’s use of testosterone. Unfortunately for Sonnen, one cannot help but notice the fact that gossip about vaginas is usually a “girl thing” as well, unless one is speaking about having pounded said vaginas with a foreign object. And these days, that could be a girl thing too.
