Chael Sonnen: Rampage is a crybaby and a nuisance
“I think (Rampage) is going to come out one more time. You know, Quinton is really good, and I’m not sure why. I don’t have the foggiest idea what he’s good at. He can’t wrestle a lick, I don’t believe he knows any submission, he’s got no real competitive boxing or kickboxing, but he is a fantastic fighter when you stick him in the cage and you turn him loose.
“I think he’s got a place, but he’s a crybaby, he’s a real ‘poor me’ guy. He comes in, he takes all the money, he takes all the money, he takes all the spotlight, and it’s still not enough.
“And it’s coming down to, you know, guys showed him respect for a lot of years but now he’s just a nuisance. You want to come around me talking that crap; I’ll smack you down so fast. You think you have problems with Ryan Bader, you know don’t even try that stuff with some of us that have, you know, kicked and scratched and clawed while you, you know, you’ve been eating at the trough for years.
“So Rampage’ has a place, but if he doesn’t want to fight anymore, he doesn’t have too.”
“These two bums (Wanderlei Silva vs. Vitor Belfort) already fought and it lasted 16 seconds, that’s a no brainer. You know, look. Every time Wanderlei fights I get the same feeling, sincerely. ‘Man, I hope he gets up and can walk out of the ring’. It’s the same thing this time, you know, and I think he’s got a big heart, I think he’s got a tremendous place in martial arts from the wrasslin’ he did over in Japan to the competitive stuff he did here. At the end of the day, this isn’t work he can do.”
“Good news – first punch I throw (at Anderson Silva) might not land. Bad news, there’s going to be five more coming right behind it. I will still be the man with the biggest arm, the greatest charm and that does the most harm and when it’s all said and done, I will stomp you for 25-minutes or until you give up and Bruce Buffer will once again announce, ‘And still undefeated, and still undisputed, and still Chael P. Sonnen’.”
