Chael Sonnen to Host the 2011 Fighters Only World MMA Awards on Fox Sports

Fighters Only Magazine announced today that Chael Sonnen will host this year’s addition of the World MMA Awards. The outspoken “American Gangster” will replace last year’s host, Randy Couture and will undoubtedly inject some humor and testosterone into the program.

The show, which will be co-hosted by ESPN’s Molly Querim, will be broadcast live on Wednesday, November 30th from the Pearl Theatre at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on Fox Sports and will be re-broadcast on Fuel TV later in the week.

In a release sent out by FO today, CEO Rob Hewitt had the following to say about the addition of MMA’s biggest talker:

“I say it every year that we want to make the awards show bigger and better and every year we have done just that. However, none of it would be possible with out the support of the MMA industry, the fans, our sponsors and TV and venue partners who all believe as much as we do in this project. To celebrate the sport we love and the people within it in the way that we do is a crowning moment of the year for Fighters Only and we can’t wait to reveal this year’s winners.”

Tickets for the World MMA Awards 2011 are priced at $59, $79 and $99, plus additional fees, and go on sale on Friday, October 21st at noon. Tickets can be purchased at the Pearl Box Office, by calling 702-944-3200 or at any Ticketmaster location. Doors for the event on November 30th open at 6 pm, with show time at 7.30pm.

Break someones shit off*
KarmaAteMyCat- October 22, 2011 at 5:38 pm
I am the first person to admit I have a ton to learn every fighter does. I never claimed to be hot shit, I just claimed that I fight and love to do just that, the other day I said I would someones shit off if I had a solid Submission on a leg,arm,elbow,shoulder,etc.. I also said I wouldn't stop unless a referee said otherwise and that makes me pompous and arrogant? I've been very forthcoming from the start with everyone I don't get where you think I'm high on my shit? I don't get that and hey whatever you want to take from it take from it.. because at the end of the day "it is what it is".

If people are offended because I think my opinions are better then theirs and that I feel I might have a slight edge in the knowledge department well that's because I do.

I have nothing against you personally. I don't know you. I do know your cliched douche bag persona very well and that's what I laugh at. If you were going out there and just dominating with ease then I could say nothing to you but the fact of the matter is that your just not that good.
Now before you and all your nuthuggers say
"dude at least he fights, you probably sit in your moms basement" I will respond preemptively. Get some quality wins and some experience before you get pompous and condescending toward us regular people and you will get the respect and admiration you so obviously crave.

Chael Sonnen rocks....when his fight days are over, he needs to replace the not-so bright White as the head of the UFC

I train at several gyms actually. Rusty is about four years younger then me and we're good friends I say kid in a friendly passive way not an aggressive trollish way you see where I'm going with this? Good hit me up after the fight we'll get a beer you can't miss me I scream out "GIVE ME ATTENTION" "I wasn't hugged enough as a child" I really don't dislike you dude but obviously you have something against me don't worry though I don't take any of this to heart hell I can see the value in a troll. See you at the fights sparky.

When he falls on his back in the third its because I grabbed his leg. he might have been a bit dizzy AT THE TIME from the loss of blood and bombs. THe kid had a lot of heart and a solid chin Rusty did really well. I just did better. Now its back to the gym and more training.

Did you go to rockingham last night?
newly sober- October 22, 2011 at 8:36 am
I am going to be there.Just got my tickets.
What gym do you train out of again? I heard you had to hold a sign on the street advertising _or some shit like that_ to pay your gym fees. Is that true?
KarmaAteMyCat- October 22, 2011 at 8:21 am
I bet you thought everyone was gonna jump on your nutts and laugh at that little snide remark didn't you? Whats with the low level xbox live mentality calling me a kid and shit? You know in all honesty the only thing that comes to mind with you is that a certain poster who continues to make unprovoked attacks really enjoys the taste of my nutt's in his/her mouth shit that Poster could even hermaphroditic who knows right? God I am just so witty and mysterious...

@ccman and anyone else who had the same thought.
Have you ever seen an awards show? The host does not announce or give trophies. Other people are brought out for each award. Duh? Do you even watch the daytime soaps awards?
myklhoey- October 22, 2011 at 7:58 am

We come together
Cuz opposites attract
And you know-it ain't fiction
Just a natural fact
We come together
Cuz opposites attract

What are you doing this weekend. Want to go grab a drink or something?

Wow, newly sober is just two steps ahead of everyone, and so mysterious. He talks about a "cagepotato poster" who is an "irrelevant amateur fighter", and then follows it up by saying this person is, "a no name fighter with questionable skill who duped many cagepotato loyal followers with his TUF antics." And just when we all think we know who he is talking about, and someone suggests it is Karma, he throws us for a loop and says, "I dont think I ever said i was talking about that kid.". Well then, whoever could he mean? One step ahead of us.
Then someone mentions him being free from alcohol with a name like "newly sober", but ah-hah!... we should have learned our lesson in making assumptions about this man of mystery by now. Two steps ahead.
This man is truly a mystery, wrapped in an enigma, and squished inside a turd which is frozen solid and then shoved up his own asshole. We'll never be able to figure out his complicated insinuations. They are just beyond us.

Hmmm so does this mean he'll be presenting Anderson with the P4P fighter award this year? That should be interesting LOL
Todd M- October 21, 2011 at 10:15 pm
Yeah I don't know about this one, I think it is a bad move to put Chael as the host of a show awarding greatness in MMA. I like Chael from a entertainment POV and I think he should be able to promote himself the way he wants but having him as a kind of spokesman for MMA, this is danger no? Don't get me wrong this show will be funny as hell but Fighters Only are taking the risk of having themselves a Micheal Richards moment, and it could harm the sport. Also I wonder who will get President of the year? and Best Promoter? and Best Faceman of Company? and Best Bald Megalomaniac? the suspense is killing me.

WHAT?^^^^ I laughed so hard at that comment. I honestly had to read it twice. So are you saying my sister is a hermaphrodite that lives as a woman and has sex with my brother. Are we gay or just incestuous? And what is a sudosKFC? Is that an insult? I honestly have no idea what that means
intercept440- October 21, 2011 at 6:28 pm
@ newly reatarded

the only thing you win " sudoskfc " is a dick in your mouth from your sister, after she fucked your brother in the ass
newly sober- October 21, 2011 at 4:38 pm
oh, and one more thing. If we both know that I am here just to troll people- and by troll I mean get them to respond to my negative comments-then do you really think I am mad or riled up as you say. No, I think that every time you respond to me I win.
Gonad Gobbler FTW
newly sober- October 21, 2011 at 4:33 pm
Thanks! I think my writing style is pretty Ill too. I might have to swagger jack that.
Gobbleston- October 21, 2011 at 4:23 pm
AAahahahha look how riled up you are.
A broken heart? The emo-ness rears its head again.
But seriously. Gonad.
More like ILLiteration. booya!
