Chael Sonnen Now Denies He Said Anything About Lance Armstrong, Ever


(Props: MMAFighting.com)

Giving more weight to our theory that Chael Sonnen legitimately suffers from multiple personality disorder, the UFC’s #1 middleweight contender did an interview with Ariel Helwani yesterday in which he denied saying that Lance Armstrong gave himself cancer by taking steroids. Keep in mind that Sonnen made those incendiary comments on a publicly-broadcast radio interview that you can still listen to any time you feel like it. Here’s the exchange with Helwani, which begins at the 4:19 mark: 

AH: A lot of people took offense to what you said about Lance Armstrong recently, to Larry Pepe. Can you elaborate on that?

CS: I never did an interview with Larry Pepe.

AH: The Lance Armstrong stuff, you never said.

CS: I never spoke of Lance Armstrong ever. Never. Not until just now.


Are we being masterfully trolled or is Chael, as they say, cuckoo for cocoa puffs? On one hand, Sonnen appears to be playing the MMA media like a fiddle, saying whatever’s necessary to ensure that we keep writing/reading about him. The other possibility is that he honestly doesn’t remember doing an interview with Larry Pepe, or accusing Lance Armstrong of being a drug-cheat.

We’re reminded of the incident in which Sonnen made offensive comments about Ed Soares on his Twitter page, then denied having a Twitter page when his comments started drawing mainstream heat (then admitted it again when he was back in the safe confines of an MMA interview show). So maybe Chael Sonnen’s not crazy. Maybe he just isn’t brave enough to stand by his words. We’ll see how that works out for him against Anderson Silva on Saturday night…

Chael should just make Anderson get him a chicken sandwich and some waffle fries, for free of course, and call it a day

No, not the "I'm gonna break his head" nonsense. I mean the random rants he goes on, like "Lance Armstrong gave himself cancer" or "what's twitter?"..

I mean, lots of fighters say they're gonna do this and that in the ring only to get their ass kicked. Happens all the time. What I wanna see his reaction to a video or audio clip proving he's a liar. "Ohhhhh, Lance ARMstrong. I thought you said Vance HEADstrong." That shit would be comedy. To me, at least.

"Twitter? You mean halfway between the twat and the shitter?? I love Twitter!"
RaginAsian- August 5, 2010 at 12:13 pm
Don't you get it by now? He's playing his own version of Anderson Silva, being a dick to the media and giving whatever answers he feels like giving on any given day. Masterful troll job, for sure.

@El Guapo

They're going to wait until after the fight. It would be much more hilarious to replay them to him after he loses.
El Guapo- August 5, 2010 at 12:02 pm
Easy now, Wifey. Nastyboy might put you in your place..

Why doesn't anybody record Shayol's rants and replay them to him when he goes into denial mode?? That'll be an instant classic! And they say Ariel's the best in the game. Playa please.

rocejize FTW. I, too, blame this on Paulo Filho.

Glad to see that things are still pretty much the same around here....

Still feels like home :)

@nickyroose

I've been on here 5 more days than you.
ooooooooooohhhhhhh

Hate to break this to you dumbshit but I've been talking shit here for a minute. At least the other folks that talk shit back, have a point or a reason to mix it up with me and talk some shit, but YOU. Who the fuck are you. I'm not sure but I don't think this is the first time I've gone back and forth with jimbonics and there are a couple others I've talked some shit with. You must have just got your commadore 64 back from the geek squad because if you were on CP regularly you'd know I think Sonnen is tied for biggest idiot with someone named nickyroose.

BossNasty just denied on twitter that he has ever heard of Cage Potato.

@jimbonics

Nice!!

I've never in my life told anyone to suck my dick
BossNasty- August 5, 2010 at 11:04 am
@knuckle

That is one of the more interesting situations being played out in the UFC. If Roy Nelson beats JDS he would definately be considered a legit contender. I still think Cain has a small chance to pull off a win but all the stars would have to be aligned. Hey never know. I think Lesnar will probably hold on to the belt with no problems until he meets Carwin again. I think he's too big, fast, and agile not to mention he's constantly learning as well. I think if he's going down it will have to be soon, he's only getting better.
jimbonics- August 5, 2010 at 10:59 am
BossNasty is Chael Sonnen. It all makes sense now. Successful Troll is indeed Successful.

@ Jimbonics

Well I guess since I've boasted so much about beeing the cage potato spelling champ that MUST make my comments ridiculous. Are you sure humerous is the word you were looking for? It sounds like the word you meant to use was intrigued. You're the only one still hung up on gay shit. I'm also convinced that when I say suck my dick, that you take that literally and are upset that you can't actually grant my request. Let me apologize, when I say that I'm just saying that to whom ever it may concern (aka jimbonics) I strongly disagree with you and please engage in discussion about your opinion. I hope that clears things up for you so that you are no longer fishing for another SMD comment. I'm flattered that you think my piece is long enough for me to perform felation on myself. You know what comes next.... I would say it, but you're obviously still thinking about it.
nickyroose- August 5, 2010 at 10:54 am
Sonnen is crazy. Silva is an asshole, Silva is the best p4p in the world as I have stated for the last 2 years.

Bossnasty is a troll. I have never seen him on this site in my life. He is probably one of Chael's nephews or some shit.
mt59801- August 5, 2010 at 10:34 am
Since both of these asshats are clearly fucking nuts, the walkout music for both fighters should be Crazy by Seal
Almost North- August 5, 2010 at 10:27 am
Clearly talking about Amber Lamps. You wily fox Chael.

@knuclesamitch
I respect Nelson as an entertaining fighter, but he reminds me of the heavy mommas boy down the street in a way. The kinda kid who was loved, spoiled a little, had friends, but it was always about him sorta thing....
At any rate, JDS has that KO thing going for him as well, against more well rounded fighters(struve cancels out). JDS has a better track record to me than Velasquez and I think he got screwed with the pro boxing talk a while back and he found himself bumped out of that title fight with Lesnar.
I think Roy has little chance, not zero, watching Mike Russow's last fight made me realize there is no such thing as zero chance in a UFC fight. I have been saying it forever that JDS has the best boxing of the heavy's and Roy will be good enough to us fans to stand up and give us all an entertaining show.

@CP

Of all the good Helwani video interviews posted on fanhouse, you had to bring this one to the CP... Come on, have some class next time...

Much more interresting at the open workout, was the actual workout, Anderson looked great, Sonnen looked tired and slow...
jimbonics- August 5, 2010 at 10:04 am
FWIW, I don't care about Sonnen either way. I've never posted a single 'homer' comment about him. I'm not offended by you. I find it humorous you like to talk about two men fucking is all.

You have a long way to go to reach "hated" status the likes that CHL or p. sample enjoyed. Until then you're just a fag with poor grammar and spelling, who thinks way too highly of himself. In words you can understand, A self-fellating troll.
knucklesamitch- August 5, 2010 at 10:01 am
@Boss -- I'm most interested in the JDS/Nelson fight. JDS clearly has the better resume, but I'm a fan of Nelson...Zero people are giving this guy a chance, but all he's done in the UFC is KO people. And personally, since I don't think Cain stands a chance against Lesnar, I want to see Big Country take the win over JDS and earn a shot at Lesnar...Because a) the trash talk of a Lesnar/Nelson fight would be hilarious, and b) When I picture a Nelson/Lesnar fight in my head it reeks of hilawesomeness (a combination of hilarious and awesomeness that I just invented)

@jimbonics

Lets analyze this

YOU have sonnens balls in your mouth. You're the fag I'm just stating the obvious

You gladly took it up the ass. You're the fag I'm just stating the obvious

Oh and for my fans: Suck my dick. You're sucking my dick so that makes you the fag and I actually find it disturbing that you are actually a fan. In regards to the story, maybe you didn't see that Videodrome requested a story so I gave him one. You know there's an old saying that if you throw a rock in to a pack of dogs the one that yelps is the one you hit. That means when I throw out ridiculous statements as I have done from time to time that the one the comment really hits is the one that speaks up. Again, and let me say this slowly so you understand I h-a-v-e a p-o-i-n-t t-o m-y s-h-i-t-t-a-l-k-i-n-g if you weren't so offended by all the pointless bullshit I said you'd know that. Instead your little sensetive feelings got hurt and you missed the fact that I'm calling out all full of shit people who are documented on CP raving about how awesome Sonnen is and how Silva is going to finally get a beating and NOW in the last 2 days have been talking about how much of a douche Sonnen is like he wasn't 2 months ago. Since I had to go into such detail to explain that to you, you know what you can do right?
