You can add Antonio Rogerio Nogueira to the Loooooong list of Brazilian fighters who are lining up for a shot at Middleweight motormouth Chael Sonnen. In the last couple of years, Sonnen has made a name for himself as a tormentor of Brazilian MMA, laying into the likes of Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida and even Nogueira's big brother.

Now, speaking to Sherdog.com, Lil Nogs had voiced his own opinion on the controversial Republican:

“It sure would be a great fight with Chael Sonnen. He’s a guy everybody wants to beat. He’s not a good example for the sport. He talks too much and says a lot of nonsense."

I absolutely agree with Nog. Sonnen has no respect for the legendary fighters. He thinks he's accomplished so much. The only thing Sonnen has accomplished is being able to beat Anderson Silva for 4 1/2 rounds. Yet he still lost. Sonnen needs to get over himself and show some respect.... or at least show that he knows how to defend the triangle... or quit being a cheater in life.

At least he's not hurt every other fight like two twin bros I know.

Had he beat Silva NONE of the other Brazilians would have mattered.

This whole conversation is a little ridicuous. All this article did was give Sonnen another headline without working for it.
