Haha that was exactly what I was thinking near the end of the video he was totally acting like The Rock. "They can roll those tickets up and stick them straight up their asses".

I wish he had said "candy asses".

I can't help it, I've been swept up by the awesomeness of last night and dumped on his bandwagon. Was never a hater, more just interestingly watching him from afar, enjoying some of his antics, getting a bit wound up by some of his other antics, but now I really hope he takes the title and we get a Sonnen title run !!

I still don't get what people see in this guy, he still makes me cringe with his WWE-talk.

That interview was hilarious. Chael looked superb last night. I think so long as people take half if what he says seriously, they will understand that he is doing nothing more than self promotion.

Funniest part for me was his face when Silva dancing with Beiber was mentioned. Looked like the 'real' Chael then rather than Mr Promotion.

Sonen has a remarkable gift for keeping people off balance. I mean I knew the shtick was coming, but it's hard to predict how he'll field certain questions. He goes from the most egregious insults, to gushing all over Anderson's dancing with a big smile. It was like he really genuinely admired the guy for that split second, and then back to just the most outrageous unfair character assassination. He flashes back and forth from decent to obscene, from likable to disturbing, from super competent to delusional.

There's some serious artistry going on here. I'm just not sure if I like it or hate it.

I can't get enough Sonnen, personally

I love how he gives Anderson props on his dancing skills with a huge huge smile

Funny interview but being funny doesn't some how mask the fact that this guy is roided out of his mind, a cheater and a compulsive liar.

I will laugh at some of your jokes Chael, but know this, I will always root for the other in any of your fights. I have absolutely no time for cheats in any high level sporting competition.
