Sonnen not afraid of lynching, knife attacks in Brazil


Chael Sonnen is not the most popular fighter in Brazil; he may actually be the most detested. But that won't stop Chael Sonnen from coaching opposite Wanderlei Silva on the next season of TUF Brazil:

Interviewer: You made attacks to Brazil. Do you believe somebody can take a gun and shot you? 

“[Silence] I… I wouldn’t have thought on shots, but I think it is possible. I was more concerned with the possibility of lynching, maybe knife attack. But yeah I think it’s possible.”

“But because I am a gangster, I don’t live with fear. I do whatever I want, wherever I want… I would like to go to the beach.”

‘The American Gangster’ from Oregon revealed he demanded extra security to take part in this show and said great measures have been taken by UFC president Dana White. “He suggested very sophisticated measures, more than I could have suggested.”

You guys ever hear about the ref who fatally stabbed a player in Brazil? Ya the fans killed him with rocks, decapitated him, quartered the body and put his head on a stake in the middle of the field. Good luck Chael.
