Now, we aren’t sure if it’s because he paid a visit to his buddy Matt Lindland‘s shed before shooting this impromptu “interview” or because he was playing a few rounds of ”puff, puff, give” with Eddie Bravo, but Chael Sonnen seems a lot more relaxed and squinty-eyed in the latest edition of Mastering the System.
As Sonnen, who claims he has never used “any slang or profanity ever” pointed out, he and Bravo really didn’t talk about anything of substance, but the king of the soundbite did provide some comic gold when poking fun at himself.
When talking about one of his “great celebrity heroes,” Mel Gibson’s highly publicized divorce and court case, Sonnen added that wiretapping was, “Not to mention, federally illegal,” before looking away from the camera and looking downtrodden. Bravo apologized for veering the conversation into personal territory and asked Chael about blaming disparaging comments he made about UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva and his manager Ed Soares during an ESPN interview on a Hispanic guy, to which he explained that he really thought the guy in the audio from the interview (which was clearly him) sounded Hispanic.
“I thought that was [a hispanic guy]. I really did. You know, there’s nothing that a saboteur with technology and enough time can’t produce,” he explained to Bravo. “You give me 20 minutes and I’ll produce a picture of me riding a 20-foot shark. You give me 25 minutes and I’ll produce a picture of you riding a 20-foot shark.”
