"I never once disputed the tap, but I also didn't know it happened. Whether I tapped or I didn't tap -- and that's by no way me saying I didn't tap ... I haven't seen the video -- it was the right stoppage.

"Josh woke me up to let me know the fight was over. Josh was saying my name the same way my mother used to wake me up for school in the morning. 'Chael...Chael...'She'd say it over and over and it would kind of get in my dream and I'd snap out of it. That's what it was like with Josh. He repeated my name three or four times and I remember when I came to, 'Am I the champion?' I didn't know how it ended. Josh Rosenthal is awesome.

"The UFC has awesome refs, and with that being said, he's at the top of the list. Above all, his job is to keep us safe and he's always kept me safe."

 If he was WOKEN UP and had no idea what was going on, then he obviously lost consciousness.

Honest before the fight, and honest after it.

What more do people want from him?

K-Dub-"T" -  LOL.

Yeah my bad. Sonnen is a well known teller of the truth, I mean ..

? Oh wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! bu...bu..but he's honest!!!!


I think he was being a troll, but I guess you're right. Regardless he was honest as fuck *after* the fight, and that's something you don't see too often.

The guy plays his audience perfectly. On one hand, he's the epitome of what he criticized Anderson for, not being genuine, of showing contempt for the media and fans by not being honest. And let's face it, he's been caught conclusively lying, saying he didn't say what he said about Armstrong, etc.

But on the other hand, there's a kind of ubermensch mentality to it all. He's just playing the game for bucks and fame, and he does it masterfully. Ali did the same thing--he too was a consummate troll who didn't really believe half the things he said in interviews.

I guess you like to ignore the fact that the Twitter verification system doesnt work. You are a moron if you think you have anything with that.

You really do waste a lot of time in the threads of a guy you hate and who has had a much better career than you. Have you met the guy Kaydubtee?

I like Chael, but really disagree with his views on money. He's being taken advantage of, and that's pretty weak. I hope he has a manager and doesn't handle these negotiations on his own.
