From the annals of now I've heard everything, here is the "Quote of the Week" from trash-talking king, Chael Sonnen. On the March 6th episode of "UFC Tonight, Chael apologizes to UFC champion, Anderson Silva. "Anderson, over the last several months, I've disparaged your name in an attempt to garner respect and attention for my own. That was wrong and I apologize. My actions were unsportsmanlike, they were uncalled for."

That's deep. Much respect to Chael for apologizing for bullying the champion by ridiculing Anderson in front of everyone. Chael's behavior towards Anderson reminded me of kids on the playground. Anderson can handle himself, of course. But for every kid who was ever bullied by a bigger, louder kid, that has to mean something.

Last thing I would have guessed he would say on TV. What I would do to find out what actually goes on in Chael's mind.

You ruined it for me by telling me there was a catch but yeah - You can smell something coming during the early part of the segment.

It was still amusing though...

There's no apology, don't waste your time on the video. It's a Fuel/FX/Fox produced "Apology" for the purpose of hyping the fight. Sonnen "apologizes" then he cuts himself off (complete with cliched record-scratch foley interrupting the cheesy music) and he basically tells Anderson to fuck off.

I'm disappointed, but not surprised, that Fox and the UFC would not just OK this, but actually spend money producing what is essentially a Chael commercial at the expense of their P4P champ. But that's Fox for you.

I did you a favor, don't waste your time.

yea it is as the expense of the p4p champ who won't speak english and doesn't do much promo stuff, what else are they suppose to do??? they have a hype machine in chael and will beat it to death because Anderson by him self isnt a seller, to bring more fans you need stuff like this. FOX & UFC didn't sign this contract for normal ratings, they want to blow the rating to the sky

I take it he didn't want to get killed as soon as his plane landed in Brazil so he purchased some time until he gets destroyed in the Octagon. What would be cool now is if Anderson just comes out and calls him a bitch lol

There is nothing wrong with hyping a fight.

Just makes if more intense when it finally happens.


Fans get into it. They start talking.

It's called publicity. Plain and simple

The guy tries hard to be an entertainer. I'll give him that.

To bad he's better at talking than finishing fights.

WAR ANDERSON!!!!!!!!!!




P.S.- This stunt really wasn't even that funny. He's done much better before. This came across as forced and fake.

The only thing forced and fake is Andy stuffing down a Whopper from BK.
