Chael Sonnen: Lance Armstrong gave himself cancer

source: Pro MMA Radio

"When you screw up, you have to own it. That stuff really gets under my skin. Take Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong did a number of things and he gave himself cancer. He cheated, he did drugs, and he gave himself cancer. Well, instead of saying ‘Hey listen, I cheated and gave myself cancer, don't be like me.' He actually made himself the victim and then went out and profited something like $15 million dollars from this ‘Hey, poor me, let's find a cure for cancer' campaign instead of just coming clean and saying, ‘Look, here's what I did, I screwed myself up, and I hope people learn from my mistakes.' You just watch these guys and can't help but think, God, what a fraud. You got the whole Michael Phelps being a pothead thing too. I'm just glad I'm in the business I'm in so I can get them in the cage and kick the crap out of them."

 Chael knows after Anderson pounds him into bolivian and he drops his next 3 fights he'll be cut, so he's starting the trash talk for freakshow fights when he signs with Strikeforce.

Wow I have now gone from wanting Sonnen to smash Silva to wanting Silva to tool him like he did Leben.

Dude has either lost his mind, says so much stuff he doesn't remember, or IS trolling. I guess the egg is on my face. Thanks Chael!

Does he say "Lance gave himself cancer." on the interview, I don't have speakers at work. Blatant lie?
