On Friday, Chael Sonnen returns to the program he walked off last month, claiming he is done with Anderson Silva and after his fight on January 28th with Mark Munoz, he wants either Georges St. Pierre, Jon Jones or Junior dos Santos in a title match next.

Sonnen will appear on TSN's Off The Record with Michael Landsberg at 5 PM EST and a preview clip released today has the top middleweight claiming his pursuit of the current UFC Middleweight Champion is over.

"I'm done with the guy. He and I have no business. He's cold product. He's like jheri curls and Pepsi Clear. He's yesterday's news. I destroyed this guy back when he was tough. That was years ago. He's so far over the hill and so far past his prime that it's not worth talking about.

I'm going to become the No. 1 contender on January 28th and despite what you may think, I'm not going to use that voucher to fight Anderson Silva. I'll be looking at (Jon) Jones, (Junior) dos Santos and possibly (Georges) St. Pierre. I will take that voucher to Dana White and pick one of those three guys. My time with Anderson is done."

His entertainment value is diminishing. I don't see him funny anymore.

dos Santos vs. Sonnen would be fun, though.

Chael Sonnen with diminished entertainment value > Every other fighter in the UFC

Seriously, MMA fighters are generally horrible at hyping fights. I believe part of that is because you are more likely to get your ass kicked and seriously F'd up than in say, boxing. Like the Klitchsko vs Haye match, bunch of talk, no show. Same with Mayweather. Generally MMA matches are the opposite, and that's just one of the many reasons I enjoy them more.

Also, you hear Overeem trying to "threaten" Brock. "I am going to tear this guy limb from limb". What? Is this some sort of cheesy 80s action flick? Is he fighting Frank Deux?

No apparently he's fighting Kurt Angle, or at least should rehearse his stupid bullshit. Fighting is about fighting, not WWE antics. You know who could hype up a hell of a fight.... Kimbo. Why dont you go be his fan.

I feel like the UFC is destroying the sport as an art.

What you left out of your post is aside from these antics he does fight, very well. Universally accepted as the 2nd best middleweight in the world by every respected ranking on earth. Only fans on this site dont acknoledge that because they dislike him. Let him get his name out there anyway he wants, hes not the first mma fighter to market himself & he won't be the last

Here we go again.....well I believe after he loses to Munoz a fight with Jones would be nice. I don't mind all the hype and shit talking but win something first then talk shit lol This guy is the biggest shit talking "also ran" in the business. From ring girls to Brazilian's, nobody is safe but he hasn't won a UFC title and in the last 2 years he has been surrounded by more scandal then gold so keep talking shit but until you beat a champ for a belt you are nothing.

HUH? Am I confused as everyone else reading this is? Kimbo couldn't hype anything up.


And I think the reason Chael is saying all of this, is because the performance drugs are wearing off, and I think he actually realizes, he is NOT the champion. I think he actually believed he was.
This guy is funny, but I honestly think he just says way to much, and just sounds stupid after listening to him for 5 minutes.

Man let him fight Jon Jones he will definitely regret that...He could beat GSP though...Dos Santos would hurt him too...

Or.....

Maybe fans on this site are educated. I'm fine with him being ranked number 2. It wouldn't bother me at all because it would be a very short lived reign on top.

Whether you like him or not, his career has been rather unimpressive. He had good performances against Marquardt and Okami and a GREAT performance against Anderson. Thats it. That's literally all he's done.

He's also lost a lot of fights and in the same fashion. A guy with such a glaring weakness doesn't deserve to be at the top and there's no way he can stay there long.

If you ask me, Chael is finally starting to realize that he has zero chance against Anderson in a rematch. He's regretting all of the nonsense spewing out of his mouth.

Let him go pick on the WW GSP. Anderson would chew him up and spit him out.

The only thing that Anderson is chewing and spitting out is Burger King......Chael regretting? Nah, he's bored for picking a fight with someone that doesn't want to fight back.

After he smashes Munoz, it's time to pick a fight with someone that actually wants to fight back.

And if he didn't hype fights you'd bitch about that. Then you'd bitch about the mat being too blue in the octagon, then you'd bitch that your chair is too small, then you'd bitch about your doritos being too cheesy, then you'd bitch that it's too dark when you turn the lights out, then you'd sleep and dream about bitching some more. At least that's what I'll assume your day goes like based on your posts.

Chael is badass. Everyone in here dogging him is just jealous of what a badass/well rounded person he is. he's one of the toughest guys on the planet and he is the smartest man in MMA. His speaking abillity is awesome and 80% of the other fighters are dull as hell when they speak. Have fun listening to boring guys give one word answers in interviews... Tools.

How many other 185ers are calling out Chael to fight him? Munoz is saying what he has to, but deep down, he knows he's in big trouble.

Nobody wants to fight Chael, you can call him a tool, a troll, or whatever....the dude can talk smack like no other can also throw down like nobody's business.

He had some good performances in the WEC too.

He beat Filho down pretty good the two times they fought.

He lost to Filho the first time.

I also don't put much weight in those wins because Filho was bat shit crazy at the time.

Chael must have been reading the forums because a lot of people think he's going to get KO'd by Anderson this time who wont be overlooking him or injured or whatever.

He Wants JDS... the guy who just destroyed two top HW wrestlers? good luck Chael I say give him that fight for opening his mouth about it.

He wants Jon Jones? the only fighter on the roster he gives props to because he doesnt want anything to do with Jones and he still doesnt. I dont buy the sudden interest to fight Jon Jones, we all know Chael would get elbowed into next week including himself.

GSP? at least thats more realistic for him, unless GSP works on this triangles
