Sonnen to Rampage: I accept

Friday, July 20, 2012

Chael Sonnen speaking to MMA Uncensored about a potential fight with Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson:

“If stupidity was a disease that was treatable by medicine, ‘Rampage’ would be the ifrst one in line at the pharmacy, every morning. If ‘Rampage’ wants to fight with me, let’s fight! But, the reality is, he’s on a two-fight losing streak, he can’t make weight, nobody cares about him, he doesn’t keep his word, and he’s out of the company in a matter of months. If he wants to fight, I accept.”

Sonnen on potential matchups at lightheavyweight and what’s next:

“Probably none of the above. I’ve had a couple of names thrown my way. It was none of those three, but those guys are all studs that would put you in a line for a championship match. I’ve never had a fight in the UFC that wasn’t against a top ten guy.”

“I really don’t know. That’s the biggest choice I’m trying to make now: Which has a likely path to the championship? Ultimately, I’ll have to sit down with my coaches. Mike Dolce will weigh in on that. It’s his job to get me to weight. I’ll kinda do as I’m told, more than what I think is right.”

Sonnen on who deserves next bout with Anderson Silva:

“Deserve is the key word there. Nobody deserves a shot. There’s a lot that goes into that: The bureacracy and politics and, basically, who can sell the most tickets often elevates you to the top in this sport. That’s where Michael Bisping comes in. Who’s the best fighter? Chris Weidman. The question is: The fighter that beat up Mark Munoz, can he duplicate that, or did he just have a really good night?”
