Sonnen: Media distracted me between rounds

by Cheryl Ragsdale | source:

On Fuel TV's "UFC Tonight", Todd Harris, show host, asked Chael the question that the media will continue to hound him with until the end of his fighting days, "Chael, what happened at UFC 148 vs Anderson Silva?"

Chael Sonnen: "Listen, you wanna really know what happened? Everything's going fine. I'm minding my own business. I'm out there, in the middle of a fist fight. I look up--in between rounds--and this is a true story--I see Kenny Florian and he's got like a buffet style [dinner] in front of him. He's stuffing his face. And I get completely distracted. Next thing I know, the ref says 'are you ready?' And I'm thinking, 'no I'm not'. And I've gotta walk out there anyway." video

After all of this time of being on the opposite side of Chael Sonnen, I think I'm finally understanding his sense of humor. He is hilarious. I'd buy a ticket to see Chael and UFC commentator, Joe Rogan in a face-off stand-up comedy show.

I had no idea. This should definitely be reviewed before a commission and there should be a rematch without calorie consuming media in the building.It's the least we could do.

"Chael would destroy Rogan in a comedy face-off"Yes he would, he would probably give any comedian a serious schooling, the guy is hilarious, quick with a comeback and totally unscripted. If he ever lands a TV deal I will tune in without question. Chael for president !!!

That was pretty funny. I think I would enjoy Chaels sense of humor more if he didn't try and talk down to everybody all of the time. When you have to start every sentence with "Listen,..." you just sound like a prick.

Boring fighter who talks a ton of shit to put himself over... yeah what's not to like? Making a funny once in a blue moon doesn't make up for it.
