It's barely noon on Monday of the biggest week of his professional life, but Chael Sonnen is already clicking on all cylinders.

"Vitor Belfort pulls out of more fights than he agrees to," Sonnen said. "He's fantastic, but he's such a chicken and he's such a liar. To say you're going to fight, to sell tickets, to sign your name, to film the TV show, and then to pull out? Against an invalid? That's insane. It's shocking they're able to say that with a straight face. My opinion of Wanderlei is constantly evolving, because as atrocious as he is skills-wise, he shows up and fights. He goes hard in spite of the lack of talent and gives the fans his best."

"Brazil would have been a good neutral territory," Sonnen said. "Most of those fighters live here. Anderson lives in Beverly Hills, in a two-million-dollar mansion. He left those Brazilians just as soon as Wanderlei and Vitor did. They go back anytime they can reach into those guys' pockets, but the reality is they're Americans, they got rich in America, they pay taxes in America, they got famous in America, they're employed by an American company, those guys are Americans. His plane fight from Beverly Hills to Las Vegas is shorter than my ride from West Linn, Ore. So good for Anderson for getting it moved to his home turf."

Jesus Chael, just shut the Fuck up already . We get it, you hate Brazilians and your smarter than 100% of the world. you sound like a women scorned. Belfort's hand was broken dude, what do you want him to do? Fight with it broken? He never would have been cleared

I actually really enjoyed this part:


Anderson lives in Beverly Hills, in a two-million-dollar mansion. He left those Brazilians just as soon as Wanderlei and Vitor did. They go back anytime they can reach into those guys' pockets, but the reality is they're Americans, they got rich in America, they pay taxes in America, they got famous in America, they're employed by an American company, those guys are Americans.


That is some grade A trash talking! I can't wait for Saturday

I guess its a good way to set up some immediate fights, win or lose on Sunday. He could get Belfort if he wins, Wanderlei if he loses and little Nog if he decides he doesnt want to cut weight anymore. Then of course there are a ton of up and coming, 2nd tier Brazilians that probably would like a shot at Chael as a way to make a name for themselves and move up on the ladder.

Personally, I think Chael would work any of those not named Anderson Silva, and to be honest, I actually think he has a good shot at winning on Saturday. The smart money is Silva, but there is definitely a chance for an upset.

Exactly. What if Sonnen wins Saturday? Who will he fight? Maybe a top contender with a dislike for the new champion. Belfort fits that description. What a coincidence.

What if he loses Saturday? Who will he fight? Maybe a big name MW with a dislike for Sonnen. W. Silva fits that description. What a coincidence.

Seems to me Sonnen is setting up future matches and sending the hype train out of the station well ahead of time. Maybe Sonnen does not use the most commendable methods to hype fights, but they are effective.

I laughed, as usual. Chael's one of the best comics in MMA.

Here's the Vid of that car ride...

I would say Chael dropped his sack bigtime. It's kinda sad really, he seems respectful and like he does not really mean any of the trash talk. I would like Sonnen more if he could admit he says stuff he does not truly believe just to hype fights.

That's pretty funny but at the same time Sonnen was actually showing that respect that Wanderlei was talking about. Chael isn't the anti-christ but i do believe that he doesn't like Anderson so he doesn't get his respect.

*I wouldn't be talking shit back with Wanderlei sitting right behind me either
