Sonnen: Lance Armstrong threatened to sue me, I threatened to kick his a$$
Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong is so disgraced that he disgraces the word disgrace. He has sued so many close friends, roommates, teammates, business partners, associates, and others that he recently said he could not recall the number, or even confirm if he had or had not sued certain individuals when asked by name.
Apparently among those he threatened to sue is at least one figure from the MMA world.
Chael Sonnen recently appeared on the Jim Rome show, and revealed that he was one of the countless figures that Lance Armstrong threatened to sue, after he said Lance gave himself cancer on an interview with Pro MMA Radio.
Two days later Sonnen flatly denied ever having said a word about Lance Armstrong.
Now the Gangster from Oregon wants to talk about Armstrong, but chiefly to dismiss media references to the cyclist as a “bully.”
“Why are they calling him a bully? That’s what I can’t wrap my mind brain around,” said Sonnen. “Lance is a dweeb, the only thing he’s missing is the tape on the glasses and the high water pants.”
“Who is he bullying? The guy the holding the cups of water at mile marker 6? The old lady that swerves into the bike lane? I don’t even understand the whole thing.”
“I felt it, after coming on your show. He threatened to sue me and I threated to kick his ass. And the whole thing went away.”
