Chael Sonnen Complimentary Towards Brian Stann Ahead of UFC 136 Bout

Quote:
"It's a lot harder fight than I thought I was going to have. I didn't think I was going to have the #6 guy in the world right out of the gate," Sonnen said candidly.

...

"That's a really hard match, and that's a really great guy," continued Sonnen. "We have to meet up at some point; we're ranked very close to each other. That fight is going to happen at some point whether I want to do it or not."

"I wasn't ready for a Brian Stann style fight; I was ready to take on a Wanderlei or a Machida or something like that. I'll need to sit down and reevaluate and up the intensity, that's for sure.

"He's doing such a good job. Rewind to his match with Chris Leben. I really would have lost whatever they would let me bet; I would have lost it all. I thought Leben would beat him.

"I think Stann's an awesome guy. I didn't think he could get by Leben. Nobody has dominated Chris Leben like that — ever — in his entire career. That was kind of like an "Oh Wow" moment when I saw that in my living room. That was a special performance.

"Then they gave him a really easy fight after that, and he went out and did some more great things. Even an easy fight, you've still got to go do the fight, and he did. He's really good."

But when asked point-blank if Stann was going to escape his patented trash talk, Chael made it clear that he's not going to skate completely:

"I wouldn't count on that," Sonnen answered with a snicker when asked if he was planning on toning down the trash talk. As for whether he's worried that his verbal barrages may alienate fans who idolize the decorated former Marine?

"Well, any statement's true if you throw the word may in there. We may be doing this interview from Mars right now. We may not wake up. Anything is true if you include the word may."
This guy really grinds my gears. There are several retarded things he says in this interview.
(1) That fighting Stann is a lot harder fight than Fighting Machida. That doesn't even make any sense. How is stann any different than any other standup fighter that Sonnen has faced? Machida definitely is.
(2) That he'll have to up the intensity for a Stann fight, vs a Machida fight. Simply stupid... nothing really to say besides that.
(3) That nobody has dominated Leben like Stann did... ever. I know he doesn't like Brazilians, but now he is simply ignoring reality and making crap up. Typical republican . Silva smashed Leben far worse and faster than Stann did.
(4)That they gave him a really easy fight after the Leben fight. More disrespectful crap against a Brazilian fighter that has never said anything or done anything to him. Santiago, while he did get smashed, isn't an easy fight for anyone.

I seriously don't like this guy. I hope they deny him his license or he pops for jacking up his testosterone levels again.

Sorry if this is a repost. I searched for it but didn't find it.

Sonnen is like the uber-troll on the brazilian forums. It's like every sentence he says he calculates to piss of Brazilians and entertain a certain demographic of Americans.

As expected, as part of that demographic he's catering to, he's playing it safe and not going hard on the Marine war hero.

The shot at Anderson is to be expected. Like I said in the last Sonnen thread the man is now a comedian and he is testing different bits on us. He doesn't believe anything he says and the fact that he said no one has beaten Chris like that...EVER...means that Anderson is still on his mind. Chael can't fool me he knows that when he loses to Stann that no amount of talking is gonna get him another decent fight. So get ready for a big show against Stann, and by show I mean the show before the show, cause he knows this is his last audition for his next gig.

You are obviously taking what he says too seriously, I had a bit of a chuckle of over how serious you're taking it. This is no different then GSP saying this is his hardest fight or any other fighters saying something like that.

Is it true that GSP faces a tougher opponent every time he fights? no.

Sonnen is your typical Brain-Washed American Republican Patriot who thinks everything else then his beloved homeland is a shit-hole. It's no different than what we see with the people in North-Korea, just that these people don't have access to the outside world and so also cannot actually see beyond their borders which would allow them an objective view.

Exactly! I have to laugh at the guys here breaking down what Sonnen is saying, as though he's saying it straight faced, and not tongue-in-cheek. Sonnen is an agitator, and an entertainer. I think the guy is Brilliantly funny. He's def my top draw, next to GSP. War Sonnen!

I get what you are saying about him talking up Stann to boost the appeal of his fight. However, this is another example of Sonnen deliberately taking shots at brazilian fighters for no reason. He's an asshole, and seems to be racist against Brazilians, though it might be him simply creating a WWE-esque persona.

Is he trying to make himself out to be a "gracie-hunter", only with Brazilians, without ever having defeated a notable brazilian fighter? Hell, his biggest claim to fame is ALMOST beating Silva, and then getting suspended for using test.

I wonder, if it weren't for those darn Republicans, would you be allowed to watch the great Chael Sonnen perform his mastery of the Martial Arts?

Just curious Bob, which side of the wall are you from?



It may never have occurred to people that Chael is respectful to people who he feels deserve respect.

Or you could bring up Republicans trying to stop MMA... cough cough... McCain...

And I do think that he shows respect to those that he feels deserve it. It also just so happens that all those people that he feels deserve respect are white americans... hmmmm...
