Superstar Billy Graham: I will be walking Sonnen to the cage


Chael Sonnen is widely regarded as the best trash talker in fight sports since Muhammad Ali. However, The Gangster from Oregon's immediate inspiration is not the 'Louisville Lip' but rather, like Ali, Sonnen learned how to work a mic from pro wrestling. Ali had Gorgeous George, and Chael has The Superstar, Billy Graham.

This is Sonnen doing his thing Saturday night:

And this is Graham, back in 1975:

And now the two will be united, cageside. Graham made the announcement via his Facebook page.

Billy Graham August 19
UFC Fighter Cheal Sonnen gave me a surprise phone call this afternoon 5:30 Phoenix time Monday, August 19th. We had a fun conversation about him using my promos and I will be looking to go to one of his fights and walk him to the ring and sit ring side to show my support for him sometime in the fall.

If you can show me Dusty Rhodes talking about large arms, most harm or pushing barbell plates and being sweeter than German chocolate cake. I will buy you a blue.

Show me where Dusty Rhodes said he had the largest arms and did the most harm. Show me where Dusty said he was the women's pet, the men's regret, what you don't see is better yet. Go ahead. Show me those.

Who believes Superstar Graham?Seriously. This guy pawned his WWE HOF ring. CM Punk, the top draw in pro wrestling a year or two ago (after his big promo) was not allowed to walk Sonnen to the cage. Why in the fuck would Superstar Graham hobble his ass down the aisle?I don't believe anything except they talked about Sonnen stealing/paying homage to old Graham promos. Graham is a bullshitter from way back so I don't buy it coming to fruition.

Yeah, and I never got why he was an announcer back then. He was bigger than half the roster and too egotistical to act scared of them. Some twerp who was shaking in his boots would've been better.
