Lance Armstrong gave himself cancer says Sonnen**UPDATE** Sonnen Denies

Quote:
"When you screw up, you have to own it. That stuff really gets under my skin. Take Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong did a number of things and he gave himself cancer. He cheated, he did drugs, and he gave himself cancer. Well, instead of saying ‘Hey listen, I cheated and gave myself cancer, don't be like me.' He actually made himself the victim and then went out and profited something like $15 million dollars from this ‘Hey, poor me, let's find a cure for cancer' campaign instead of just coming clean and saying, ‘Look, here's what I did, I screwed myself up, and I hope people learn from my mistakes.' You just watch these guys and can't help but think, God, what a fraud. You got the whole Michael Phelps being a pothead thing too. I'm just glad I'm in the business I'm in so I can get them in the cage and kick the crap out of them."

Well, I gotta say I didn't see this twist coming. Chael Sonnen has turned his focus away from Anderson Silva and onto Lance Armstrong. Yes, the guy who rides bicycles. When asked by Larry Pepe on Pro MMA Radio what really bothers Sonnnen, Chael all of a sudden went on this rant about the seven-time Tour de France victor. The number one middleweight contender alleges that Lance actually gave himself cancer by blood-doping and taking performance enhancing drugs. Once again, Mr. Sonnen didn't let a little thing like facts get in the way of spewing hot air. A quick Lance Armstrong search on Google reveals that the cyclist was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1996, but won his first Tour de France while first being accused of using PED's in 1999. I'm surely not one to nitpick on facts when it comes to pre-fight trash talk, but in this case, the Oregon native has officially crossed the line. And who knows where he was going with Michael Phelps hitting the bong a couple years back. Where do you come out on this nonsense? Any cycling fans, or virtually anybody else for that matter, take offense to this garbage?
Odd rant.

I swear the more Chael opens his mouth the more I want to see Andy just smash him.

At first I thought he was really funny and don't get me wrong I still think he is funny. But sometimes he really crosses the line as in this case.

It´s not like he´s not saying the true.
Ciclism it´s probably the sport with more "X-factor" involved.

Besides, only a slower person would believe that Lance was climbing 7 miles hills, non stop at full gas only on natutar ability...

p.s. Im a fan of Lance, i wish he had achieved his 8th win at the Tour, but come on, you gotta see behind the curtain sometines!

I thought cancer was just a universal "no go area" when taking a pop at someone?
