Chael Sonnen said a major sponsor of Yushin Okami's requested he not attend UFC 134 to corner Yushin Okami.

A source with knowledge of the situation told MMAjunkie.com  that Praetorian, a Brazil-based MMA brand, threatened to pull the Japanese fighter's sponsorship if Sonnen attended.

"There's a line of people that want to kick his ass," the source said.

Brazil-based MMA manager Alex Davis said Sonnen's words have united Brazil's MMA community.

"Brazilians don't get together on other things, but they've gotten together on this," Davis said. "He is talking about people that a whole generation of fighters worship."

"This is serious business," said Sonnen. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and it's not my place to disturb it or shift any type of attention to me. This is his moment, his night, his time to be the world champ."

How is it Okami's night to be champ if Sonnen already thinks Sonnen is the champ?

 Or trolled = "put your training partners income and your personal safety in jeopardy because you talk too much shit".

He should be thankful he can use this as an excuse to tuck from showing his face in Brazil......

 I think it should be mandatory for ''big'' countries to have a sense of humour.

Obviously Brazilians are not quit there yet......

Then again,i would also be pretty mad if they said i tried to feed a carrot to a truck. I mean come on now....if a men confuses a truck with a horse there really in no point in living anymore.

exactly

I'm gonna cheat on my chick and then when she finds out I'll just like "lol trolled ya boo"

I should run a ponzi scheme and then when I get arrested I'll stand before the judge and announce "lol @ you idiots falling for the troll"

then all the 19 year olds on the UG will talk about what a genius I am

Northside Strangler - He was just in Brazil talking shit and NOBODY did anything. Who cares if he corners Okami besides Praetorian. <br type="_moz" />


the difference is this time everyone knows exactly where he's gonna be

a little different from hanging out in your hotel room talking shit on twitter

i'm glad that there is still a nation around that has enough national respect to kick the ass of someone who brutally disrespects their country... americans are generally too zoned out on the TV to give a crap.

 Sonnen is probably just giddy at the idea of helping Okami win with his vastly superior sub defense so Chael can then say they cant train together anymore and push for a fight.
