Ask people about Chael Sonnen's mic work, and you're bound to receive a list of polarizing adjectives in return: funny, racist, xenophobic, mean, unprofessional, over-the-top, entertaining, rude, rambling, and so on. I prefer irreverent. I like irreverent. I also like absurd, and it's amusing to me that people take Sonnen's words to heart considering how weird and absurd and audacious he tends to be.

Brazil's Terra Esportes spoke with Lyoto Machida and Jose Aldo about Sonnen's proclivity for promo (translation by Tom Mendes):

"Everyone has their own way of hyping a fight," says Machida. "My way is inside the Octagon. It's my fight. The media gives a lot of opportunity in the virtue of MMA growth in the world and he takes advantage of that, he knows how to market and sell himself well."

"flipper babies in Chernobyl" ??? I'm not sure what that means, but if it means what i think it means he's plumbing new depths.

Gotta give it to chael, he knows how to ruffle some feathers and in turn, market the fight. But until he learns how to defend a submission, he should probably keep his pie hole closed

Responding with more nonsense to people giving out real talk? Gotta love those "special" tea baggers.

Chael cornering Yushin alone is worth the price of 2 ppv's

Jose Aldo should sneak up behind Chael and give him the ole' Nancy Kerrigan with leg kick.

I'm still amazed that so many people get offended at what he says.....they just don't get it.

I'm just curious how everything will go down in Brazil. Those Brazilians don't have much of a sense of humor.

No kidding, we gave them the internet, maybe we can give them some of our sense of humor ...I hope security is beefed up.

When he says "flipper babies" he is referring to the children born with deformities due to the radiation emitted from the Chernobyl nuclear accident.

This. It's going to be a really interesting couple of days for Chael down there. I really hope he keeps a vlog or blog while he's there, but he doesn't seem the type. I'm sure there will be some great stories afterwards nonetheless.
