Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Bizarro World Technique Video of the Day: Omoplata from Guard by Chael Sonnen

WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?   VidProps: BlackBeltMagazine/YouTube

Some things you just never expect to see.  You never expect to see a picture of Brock Lesnar with spectacles, or BJ Penn and Matt Hughes broing it up.  We will probably never see Cheick Kongo hit a flower sweep to triangle choke, or Jared Shaw look like anything but a giant bag o’ douche, or Dana White say anything nice about MMA websites.  I have seen some things in my time, Nation, but this … this is a whole ‘nother thing.

What we have here is some truly unexpected video evidence of Chael Sonnen on his back.  Doing jiu jitsu.  Explaining jiu jitsu.  Attempting, if you can believe it, a submission maneuver.

Mind is asplode.

As if that were not enough, after the jump you’ll find more video of this alternate-universe Sonnen being interviewed by a Brazilian reporter for RedeTV and saying nice, respectful things about Brazil and its flag.  Lest you start to believe that one of Sonnen’s other personalities has completely taken over, relax — he’s still full of piss and vinegar whenever he talks about Anderson Silva.


I’m not sure what all this means, Nation, but i’m scared.

Someone hold me.

Hilarious as usual, and I was impressed with Chaels sicerity when accepting the flag and talking about his brazilian coaches, like Sho Nuff said he's jokes aren't really mean spirited. That said Andersons going to knock him silly if they meet again :)

yeah, -200 that tattoo is ridiculous. I never know who to pick in a leben fight.

Munoz? I'll tell you what, let's see if he can dispatch the Crippler first. If so, its time to get a seat in the front of the bus.
. long as he can shake the rust and have his eyeball pop out, why not?

Opps, I got one good reason.
Dana went on the record and says Belcher has to get the fucking tattoo fixed or removed. There has got to be an ink gun master somewhere who would be able do it for free if he understood how big the stakes are for Alan.

Gotta love Chael, dude's hilarious. His trash talk is witty, skilled, not truly mean spirited, and he manages to be a good ambassador for the sport at the same time. Big Nog is my favorite fighter of all time and I still find Chael's antics funny, trying to feed the bus, good times...

Its like I just stared into the sun.

seems like sonnen finally realized that no one believes what he says anymore, and hes starting to regret talking mad shit about brazilians

*Belcher has fought for a while either cuz of any injury. But, I'd still like to see him get a title shot.

*if Chael beats Anderson

Xeno- I like Chael but I'd actually like to see a couple of other fighters get a title shot before Chael. Chael's just coming back from being suspended and there's a few other fighters that have been fighting while Chael's been away. Not sure they'd beat Anderson, but I'd like to see Belcher, and Munoz get shots at the title first. But, I wouldn't complain if Chael got the title shot and then Belcher and or Munoz got the first title shot against Chael.

I know many Brazilians who feel that Sonnen should run for political office inside their country. They have pointed out to me that when in Brazil real estate swindles are common, and the use of PED's is not an issue.

If Okami wins, Sonnen with work him. If Anderson happens to fend off Okami he won't get lucky a second time if he can't keep his feet under him. Even then he had little impact over the wrestler.
Chael Sonnen is soon going to be the next Middle Weight Champion for the UFC. Absent injuries, it will take place in less then 6 months.

I think I was more surprised he didn't make remarks about how Anderson Silva doesn't know how to apply a omo plata.

You guys are surprised that a high level pro fighter can explain a white belt technique?

@ReX Wow, your mind really must have asploded. Do you realize you signed off as {XR}. Take the rest of the day off. Come back tomorrow with clean clothes. Get yourself together.

I learned better technique from that video then I did in my free lesson at Batista's new gym.
k-onda- August 17, 2011 at 9:16 am
What, no reach around? No dick in the ear?

Yes, i know -- the interview video was in the Link Party this morning. I'd already done this, so suck it.
