Fighter and author Urijah Faber has known Chael Sonnen since ever since (the two crossed paths when they both were wrestlers) and believes in 'the gangster from Oregon'.
“I think this sport needs guys like Chael Sonnen,” said Faber at a recent question and answer session.
“The guy was coming over from the WEC as world champion and then came over and got put on the undercard for the UFC. I think he chose to make a switch and said I need to stand out in this sport and just being the nice, intelligent guy that I am is not enough."
“He probably won’t admit to that, but the guy made a switch and decided, hey, I’m gonna stand out in this sport. I’m gonna create my own opportunities and he does it in an interesting way that people either really hate or really love.”
Is The California Kid correct? Do you love or hate Chael Sonnen?
