Sonnen: ‘Cranky, bitter son of a b!^$#” Kennedy needs to shut up
Superstar/Gangster Chael Sonnen recently appeared on 'You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen' and discussed Tim Kennedy's outrage over the extended time Yoel Romero spent on the stool between the second and thirds rounds of their fight at UFC 178.
“Tim Kennedy is one cranky and bitter son of a b—–,” said Sonnen as transcribed by David St. Martin for MMAfighting. “Have you seen some of the stuff he's saying lately? He's threatening to never come back to the sport because he's so upset about 'stoolgate.' This guys is one of these guys that, for me, he gets a pass. I'm an American, he's an American hero. He served the country well. He did some things. He's a hero. That's where it ends. But the guy says some stuff that if he wasn't a hero… Somebody needs to tell him to shut up. Tim, you gotta stop, man. You're so bitter.”
“The outcome of the fight is the outcome of the fight. You just walk away.”
“Tim was so worked up about i. I'm going, 'Tim, anything that you want to do and all of this anger, man, we're for that before the fight. But when the fight's done, when the pay-per-views are sold and when the cage is being torn down, shut up. Give the other guy his 15 minutes whether he earned it or was gifted it. Give him his 15 minutes and walk away.”
