Sonnen: Media distracted me between rounds
On Fuel TV’s “UFC Tonight”, Todd Harris, show host, asked Chael the question that the media will continue to hound him with until the end of his fighting days, “Chael, what happened at UFC 148 vs Anderson Silva?”
Chael Sonnen: “Listen, you wanna really know what happened? Everything’s going fine. I’m minding my own business. I’m out there, in the middle of a fist fight. I look up–in between rounds–and this is a true story–I see Kenny Florian and he’s got like a buffet style [dinner] in front of him. He’s stuffing his face. And I get completely distracted. Next thing I know, the ref says ‘are you ready?’ And I’m thinking, ‘no I’m not’. And I’ve gotta walk out there anyway.” video
After all of this time of being on the opposite side of Chael Sonnen, I think I’m finally understanding his sense of humor. He is hilarious. I’d buy a ticket to see Chael and UFC commentator, Joe Rogan in a face-off stand-up comedy show.
