I've come across the type before a few times, dirtbags with mouths to match - inevitably they get themselves out of trouble, find a new niche, eventually fail again, get thrown out, have no real friends and are failures at life.
He may have a future as stand-up comedian, maybe he can run the Oregon comedy circuit.
I really do think you got a bad read on Sonnen. Her never used to talk nearly as much until the Silva fight. Once her did he gained fans... Why stop when that's what made you popular? it was all to hype the fight and himself. He became one off the fastest growing fighters in the world.
I see dirt bags with mouths to match daily. I truly don't believe Sonnen to be one. He really does appreciate every fan he has. He's never not responded to an email. Remember when his phone number got leaked? He actually responded to just about every person who texted him that bight all night. There are very few pro athletes in the world who would put up with stuff like that for their fans.
I would bet money on it if you or I were to meet him, he would be nice as can be.
