Chael Sonnen was in this sport for 10 years. for 10 years he was as respectful and as good a sportsman as his mentor Randy Couture. Did any of you know who Chael was in 2007?
Matt Lindland pulled out a crystal ball and showed chael his future in the prelims and on to strikeforce and helped him grab his own destiny by the balls and change it.
The fact that you and so many others get so worked up coupled with the fact that he is about to fight Anderson instead of Luke Rockhold is proof of what a great success he is.
This post sums up exactly what Chael is all about. He's just a guy trying to promote himself to make a coin. He's actually a good fighter (not a great fighter in my mind, but an exceptional wrestler) who is using the media as a resource to get people riled up and talking about him. The more exposure he gets, the more potential money he can make.
He's the best I've seen at using his voice to get an audience.
