Chael sonnen at it again lol

AUSTIN, Texas Prior to his now legendary UFC 117 clash with Anderson Silva, UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen launched a months-long verbal assault of epic proportions.

While an official date has yet to be announced for the forthcoming rematch, Sonnen is already up to his old tricks.

And while it's Silva on whom the challenger is most focused, he's got some kind words for "a French-Canadian Minnie Mouse," the UFC's heavyweight champion with a "$5 haircut and a knife tattooed on [his] chest," and a certain "Axe Murder" who Sonnen says "used to be a fighter."

"I'm ready to go,' Sonnen said at Tuesday's special Q&A session at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. "Is Anderson here somewhere? I'll kick his ass from Austin all the way to San Antonio.

"People keep saying, 'Chael, you're hyping the fight.' No I'm not. Hyping a fight is when I tell you guys, 'This is going to be a great fight.' I did just the opposite (before the first fight), and I'm going to do just the opposite now. This is not going to be a great fight. This is going to be him getting beat up for 25 minutes or until he gives up."

Sonnen appeared well on his way to victory in the pair's August meeting after dominating the champion through nearly four-and-a-half rounds. But the fight took an unpredictable turn in the fifth and final frame when Silva latched onto a desperation triangle choke and elicited the tap from Sonnen.

Sonnen predicts it will be different this time around, and he was less-than-complimentary of Silva's vaunted standup attack even after witnessing it first hand.

"I think [Silva] is a great fighter, but he's not as good as me," Sonnen said. "He's not as good as Yushin Okami, either. He's not the best guy in the world, and he never has been. He's a sham.

"He's one of these guys that throws leg kicks. So what if you get get kicked in your leg? What a bunch of [crying]. Getting kicked in the leg and admitting that hurts is like admitting you're scared in the dark. It may be true, but if you say it, you're a real wimp."

Sonnen said he's not discounting the danger that Silva presents in the rematch. Nevertheless, he believes the belt will be wrapped firmly around his waist after the second meeting, and he's already considering a few superfights afterward.

Sonnen said he'd be willing to move down a bit and face welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in a catchweight contest or jump up a class and challenge current light heavyweight title holder Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

"'GSP' had better pray to heaven above that 'Shogun' accepts my challenge because one of those two is getting beat up," Sonnen said.

When called on his bluff by a fan in regards to a potential matchup with St-Pierre, Sonnen immediately launched into one of his patented tirades while insisting he was more than serious.

'If GSP said he wanted to fight me, the first thing I would say is the same thing I say every time I hear GSP talk: 'Dang it that guy sounds like a French-Canadian Minnie Mouse,'" Sonnen said. "That's the first thing I'd say. Then I'd say, 'Hey, GSP, let me ask you a serious question do you have a designated driver? Do you have someone to get you home safely? Because clearly you are intoxicated.

"'GSP, do you have a hankering for pain? GSP, did you lose a bet with God? GSP, bring your $3,000 suit, bring your $3 date and get the three-cent tan knocked off your socialist back.' If you see GSP, give him that message for me."

Sonnen didn't limit his challenges to fighters outside his own division. There were brief mentions of Michael Bisping ("I don't think I'm going to help his career") and Wanderlei Silva ("used to be a fighter"), for instance.

But as testament to his belief that it's simply not possible to bite off more than he can chew, Sonnen took his challenges all the way to the top UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.

"If Brock Lesnar was here right now, I'd take my boot off and throw it at him, and he'd better polish it up before he brings it back to me," Sonnen said. "Talking about he's the baddest guy in the UFC? Brock, quit eating so many raw eggs and doing push-ups because it's affecting your realm of reality. Are you kidding me? I'd slap you in your face, and you wouldn't do anything.

"'I'm Brock Lesnar. I've got this $5 haircut and a knife tattooed on my chest.' I'll shove it up your face if you get in Chael Sonnen's way."

So with another shot at the UFC's middleweight title on the horizon, Sonnen's trash-talking range once again knows no limits. And in an effort to step up his game from the awe-inspiring levels of his UFC 117 clash with Silva, Sonnen has now taken to operating with completely different mediums.

With that in mind, Sonnen debuted a poem-in-progress, currently titled "Anderson, who you gonna send?"

"Anderson, who you gonna send?"
Anderson, think it through.
There's still a few months before they lock the cage door behind me and you.
Last time, they raised your hand, but it was plain to see
I took a lot more about of you than you took out of me.
I broke the mirror, and I blew away the smoke.
It was me who tapped, but it was you who broke.

-Chael Sonnen

Nice.
+ rep man!
I posted something similar in the smacktalk area, but only the poem dedicated to Silva.
He's crazy...
Glad to see he is back.

BELIEVE!

Sonnen is just having fun. I know it annoys some people, and I can understand why, but it also makes several others laugh. I think he's embracing that. Fight, but have fun and get a few laughs at the same time. It's certainly a unique brand of comedy, but it's obviously worked for him. I, for one, find a great deal of what he says to be hilarious. I may be one of the biggest GSP marks you'll ever find, and even I can have a chuckle at 'French Minnie Mouse'.

I really thought Sonnen couldn't be a bigger douche bag but he proves me wrong. And just when I thought I couldn't despise him more... I do.

It takes a LOT to make me root for Silva, but Chael does that.

I think Anderson wasn't more than 80% the first time around, and he saw all Sonnen had to give.

Silva in the 3rd.

Man, I hope someone at the UFC makes Sonnen one of the coaches on the next TUF series or gives him a guest commentator spot at live events. I would pay good money to see Chael Sonnen conduct a post-fight interview with Brock Lesnar.

Man I really don't like this guy... He was, undeniably, impressive in his last performance but he is such a disrespectful guy (I know it sells PPV's but sell them with your damn fighting abilities instead of your big mouth) and I just don't like him :/

I just want to say for the record that my opinion of Sonnen has nothing to do with Anderson being one of my all time favorites

EDIT:
This guy needs a good ol'-fashioned behind-the-bleechers humbling, and I can't wait for him to get it... And him jabbing at Wand just straight pissed me off, know your place man!
Man I hate politicians!

I normally don't get mad and I know that is what Sonnen wants to accomplish, he wants to piss people off and he is doing a good job... At least after his last fight he took his defeat like a man, but apparantly he has grown even more delusional... I hope Silva lives up to his potential as well in the rematch and beats this guy for 5 straight rounds...

War Silva!

Another masterful troll by Sonnen, I love the guy.

For those of you who engage full nerd rage, the joke is on you
