How does Chael Sonnen promote his next fight?

I know we're looking at another Chael Sonnen thread but seems to be a legitimate question seeing as there is a lot of interest involving Chael.

So, how do you think Chael Sonnen is going to promote his next fight?

Is Chael going to come out and pretend like nothing happened and keep talking a big game?

Is Chael going to come out and say he's going to try and make it up to his fans?

Is he just going to keep his mouth shut?

Is he going to keep his TRT program going and stay within the guildlines for his next fights?

Are we going to see another Sonnen vs. Silva matchup before the end of 2011?

Anyways, I'll leave it open to discussion. I personally think that Chael is avoid this issue like the plague. I think he is going to continue the TRT program and he's going to keep flapping his lips like he did before.
One thing I do expect from the UFC is that he's going to get a lot of bad matchups style wise. Don't get me wrong, the amount of bad press that Chael got from this fight still generated a lot of interest in the UFC. Chael will get main card fights and tough fights too. Unfortunately for him the leash is very short.

I definitely think that this is what's going to happen.

Honestly, I think he's gonna keep his regiment going but not mention it (unless asked point blank) and since he sells his fights with his trash talk I don't think he'll stop. He definitely doesn't sell his fights with his fight style. I imagine he's just going to evade, escape and deny where possible.

I also think he'll have his rematch before the end of 2011, possibly even before Okami has his, he'll probably just have to win his return fight. You did mention that he was going to have tough matches but he hasn't had the easiest before his title fight either, if Dana wants to punish him, he'll just set up matches with BJJ blackbelts with dangerous guards (Maia rematch maybe). I think there's too much money to be made with a rematch though and it will probably happen.

In his mind he is innocent, thus no reason to bring it up but will still call anyone else out on cheating if he even dreams that they did it.

I see Chael being Chael. The dude turned a fight that no was really that interested in into huge ppv numbers. Even if he wanted to be more reserved and not talk as much trash, id bet the UFC will tell him to keep doing his thing. The guy can hype a fight. Lets be honest, he is a completely one dimensional fighter, but people still love him. Chael isnt going to change, even if he wants to.

Of course he'll still be on HRT. That's like asking if a diabetic will continue with insulin. His T/E ratios were skewed, but his total free test was within normal limits.

There's a difference between taking HRT to produce a homeostatic level of testosterone that a healthy adult male of his age should be producing and taking anabolic steroids for hyper-test production.

I would honestly hope that he lets his actions do the talking rather than his mouth. He put on a great performance against Anderson Silva, whether Anderson was really hurt or it was an excuse because he got dominated 90% of the fight, I dont really know but honestly I think whatever Sonnen accomplished (and he did some impressive things) I think that its been tarnished. I especially think the comments bout Lance Armstrong for instance made himself look like a tool.

Personally I just hope that he promotes his next fight by keeping silent and letting his actions do the talking. I hope hes learned something from this whole debacle.

"You see that guy over there with the Rocky Horror Picture Show hair-cut, he's a D.O. and says I have small testicles, so I take steroids. If I didn't, I would die. End of story. blah blah blah, I've fought every fighter and beat them, there's a lot of good fighters, but I am the best."
