Chael Sonnen being Chael Sonnen

Here’s 20 minutes of Chael Sonnen weaving his unique version of reality for MMA Fighting’s ‘Backstage’ series. My God this Sonnen. As much as I hate him, he is one of the best shit talkers in the history of the sport. He is trollface personified. As a turd slinger myself, I cannot deny this … I tip my cap to him.

    Wow, that was a master class in shit talking. I don’t know how you could possibly hate this guy.


    He has a Steve Jobs reality distortion field around him so that when he talks he absolutely has me believing what he’s saying even though I know that it’s crap.

    He’s so divorced from reality it’s amazing…on the other hand, he’s 100% right that pound-for-pound is 100% bullshit. Gotta agree with him on that.

    All said, that was fucking hilarious.

    i will never understand why people pay attention to him. and no, i didn’t watch the video.

  • lukustra

    i love listening to him but his voice is so annoying. he sounded like a republican party spokesperson.

  • lukustra

    he is beyond delusional, i wonder if he actually believes the things he says. he doesnt check up his facts all that well however as wandy was 2-5 in the ufc not 2-7 before the leben fight. and most of the pride guys that came to the ufc were at the end of their careers as it is. and what about rampage and shogun as two individuals who went thru the “pride circuit” who were successful in the ufc.

    plus what the hell is he talking about charles bannett knocking out war wand?

    There’s a grain of truth to a number of the things he said.  Many of Fedor’s and Wand’s wins were against cans while in Pride; and Rampage has talked about being forced by Pride to fight while injured, and also being offered money to throw a fight.  Pride was run by the Japanese mafia for fucksake!  With that said, Sonnen is simply a shit-slinger, he has no credibility whatsoever.  However, his rants are entertaining, no doubt.  I must confess, the point he made about Anderson not asking for the Okami rematch is puzzling to me.  Why has it taken this long?

    You never heard that story? It’s infamous–according to myth/legend/Mark Coleman, Krazy Horse got into a tangle with the Chute Boxe boys backstage at PRIDE Shockwave 2005 and knocked out Wanderlei out with a hook. That’s apocryphal, but what isn’t is this video of him getting triangled by Chute Boxe guy Cristiano Marcello after the supposed KO took  place. Good shit starts at 1:31 or so.

    Sure the super shit talk is entertaining, he likes the attention obviously. But I don’t think I could handle being in the same room with this guy if this is how he acts.

    Fucking Crazy Horse! Thanks Skizz I saw the Wandi backstage brawl but never heard this part of it.

    I remember the story said that Bennett KO’d Wandy after the Triangle.
