Chael Sonnen Goes off on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira for Fight Withdrawal

Calling out of work sick nearly five months in advance seems unacceptable in just about any professional circumstance, which is the same way that three-time UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen looks at fighters who pull out of fights.

When longtime rival Antonio Rogerio Nogueira pulled out of his March 8 fight with Alexander Gustafsson, per Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting, "The American Gangster" ripped him a new one on Twitter.
 
Lil Nog: the only man who has 'no-showed' more times than Axl Rose.

He signs his contracts in disappearing ink

He gets hurt more than Johnny Knoxville

Too bad he can't list his profession as "Fight Avoider" on his tax return

Maybe Dos Santos can lend Lil Nog his heart while his face heals

He's the "Carmen Sandiego" of MMA

Instead of a contract, Joe Silva faxes him a Missing Person's Report

it's Halloween. Lil' Nog went as a FIGHTER

But he didn't fool anybody and got no candy

While Sonnen arguably went a little overboard, it is hard to overlook the fact that "Lil' Nog," who is 37 years old, has not been durable in recent memory.

The famed Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt has only fought four times since September 2010, although he does boast back-to-back wins over former champions in Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans.

Additionally, the Brazilian fan favorite has now withdrawn from two fights in a row due to a back injury. He previously pulled out of a rematch with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 161 in June.
Sonnen, always a game competitor, was willing to fill in on just a little over a week's notice, but he didn't end up meeting Rua until UFC Fight Night 26 in August.
 
The Team Reign Training Center fighter won the bout via a first-round guillotine choke.
Sonnen is set to take on Evans in the co-main event of UFC 167 on November 16. Afterward, he will embark on another season of The Ultimate Fighter, this time coaching opposite another rival in Wanderlei Silva.
Therefore, a grudge match between Sonnen and Nogueira doesn't seem to be in the cards anytime soon.

How do you not like Chael? These were all great.

Does Chael sit at home and think about this stuff at night, or is he really that good?

Agreed.  He is 95% attention whore/ 1% fighter/ 4% TRT


Yeah can you imagine what he would do to the likes of Mauricio Rua if he was like, 2% fighter?

I love Nog but god damn some of those tweets were gold. I used to genuinely hate Chael a few years ago, but once you can appreciate and understand his brand of trash talking, there's really no one else that does or even could do it like him Phone Post 3.0
