In case you hadn't noticed, Chael Sonnen is back.

And he's not wasting anytime in picking a fight. Earlier this week, he asked for a "tune-up" bout against Lyoto Machida in the light heavyweight division. While the UFC considers his request, Sonnen continues to run roughshod over (who else?) some of the promotion's most popular Brazilian fighters.

My man crush on Sonnen grows by the minute. Not because I agree but because he makes me laugh every time he opens his mouth. And we all know that a sense of humor is much more important than looks!

I would love to see him on the Rio card. It's likely too soon for him to be ready to fight but the reaction he'd get from a Brazilian crowd would be hilarious

His comments were funny about Wandy and Aldo.
However, he sounds like an idiot. He clearly isnt champ, you can hit a guy and get knocked out with one punch, does that still make him a "champ".
Im sorry but i dont like the guys, i hope Machida embarrasses him. I'm going to take Machida by Sub.

Agreed. Though he may end up getting kidnapped and beaten to death.

Sonnen vs Machida would be a fun fight, I think sonnen will pound him out actually, but you never know what kind of secret kung Fu stuff that Steve has taught Machida and the rest of his Flock of Seagals.

The guy clearly has a gift with the English Language and a sense of humor, but he's the kind of guy who is funny, then gets annoying, then he becomes funny again, then you're like "Just STFU already!"

Some of the stuff was funny:

"Hey Wanderlei, let me give you a threat. I will cut the power to your house and do a home invasion. You will hear me climbing up the stairs in a pair of night vision goggles I bought in the back of 'Solder of Fortune' magazine. The next thing you'll hear is me picking the lock of your bedroom door and taking a photograph of you in bed with the Nogueira brothers working on your jiu-jitsu. I will post said photograph at www.DorksFromBrazil.com with password: not required, username: not required."


Some wasn't funny:

"It's like this annoying Jose Aldo that they've got number three pound-for-pound. Hey guys, excuse me, but there's no such weight class as pound-for-pound. There's no such title. The pound-for-pound does not exist but just in this pretend world.

Some was just stupid:

"I should be the reigning champion. I punch a guy 300 times, he punches me a couple and they call him the champion? In what parallel universe does that make you the winner? I am the champion. I've been the champion."


However, the funniest thing he said in the whole interview was this:

"To act like I've got some kind of submission or jiu-jitsu deficiency just isn't true. I know how to get out of triangles"

Sonnen's thrash talk to is just white noise at this point.

Absolutely. That's a huge concern down there. Rio is the most dangerous city in the world, right?

Oh Chael, you silly goose.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
