Chael Sonnen’s Terrible Post-Fight Speech Was Actually Ripped Off From ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham

(Props: foxsports)

Of the many painful moments during Saturday’s UFC on FOX 2: Evans vs. Davis broadcast, the worst were the two appearances by Chael Sonnen‘s pro-wrestling heel character, which didn’t exactly help MMA’s reputation as a serious sport. Before the fight, Sonnen compared himself to a pack of cigarettes then leered directly into the camera, in a promo that would have gotten him immediately eliminated from WWE NXT.

After the fight, Sonnen launched into a self-aggrandizing monologue that had nothing to do with the battle he just had with Michael Bisping. If it reeked of low-budget wrasslin’ trash, there’s a reason for that. Sonnen was actually doing his own version of a 1975 post-match interview by “Superstar” Billy Graham, from a World Wide Wrestling Federation show. Watch the video above, then watch the video after the jump, and you’ll see what we mean…

(Props: BloodyElbow)

Really, Chael? This is who you’re modeling yourself after? The women’s pet and the men’s regret? Jesus. “As real as it gets,” it ain’t. Sonnen closed out his memorable night with one final bit of bizarre pre-rehearsed trash-talk:

And all you blowhards with your blow darts can make any threats you want. And I encourage you, follow through on ‘em. Send anybody you like. But don’t send anybody you’d like back.”

Everyone who somehow cannot figure Sonnen out should watch this post-fight interview on youtube. How much of this is in jest is pretty obvious to me because of interviews like this one. Note the expression on his face when he is asked about "the belt" he has been carrying around. I had sent an interview to CP a while ago that he gave regarding international wrestling and the US team. They did not post it of course because some of you might have to reconsider if he is crazy or not! Watch this link:

Skywalker, give your mom back her laptop and get ready for school.
Yes I think Bisping is a dick, from the TUF shows. But he was classy in defeat and that is something I appreciate. Sonnen may trash talk but he said nothing but good things about Bisping. There is a difference from being a genuine dick and from lipping off for some harmless entertainment. I think it's around grade 3 that you can tell the difference.. another year and you won't be so pissed off about somebodies post on an internet forum.

This post fight interview just piqued the interest of several hundred thousand rednecks and teenagers watching this on Fox. (maybe more). They may just stick around now to watch his next fight on PPV. Those types aren't reading news boards like this, but they do make up a large part of the population who own TV sets. Cheesy to many, but non cheesy and possibly taking seriously by that many more. A subscriber is a subscriber. Dana will be happy.

Rocky Blunt = Moron. Douche bag. Waste of space.
SuckMySkyWalker- January 30, 2012 at 7:58 pm
Joe Dirt you are a FUCKING moron you 3 faced hypocritical poo pusher. You praise Chael`s embarrassing behavior yet have the nerve to say, you appreciate Bisping now because he showed "class"? Stop being a cherry picking douche bag you fucking ape.

Who cares where he stole it? I LOVED IT.
fuck off haters.
fatbellyfrank- January 30, 2012 at 4:24 pm
@Onan, apart from your first sentence, I agree100%
@google thanks for clearing that up, I near fell of my chair!
And whether or not I just dont get it, or have sand in my vagine, IMO Sonnen is an overrated clown.

Quit taking this crap so seriously. These guys, for all their skill, devotion, practice and study are doing something very simple: fighting. There's a place for all kinds of characters in a sport so simple. There's a place for honorbale and stoic champions, cerebral cockasses, and total shitty heels. Chael Sonnen is simply being entertaining, and having fun. He's a whole lot easier to listen to than Bones, stumbling over 1 sylable words. I like the fact that he knows the whole world knows that he is a POS. He seems to embrace it. No need in hiding it.
Rocky Blunt- January 30, 2012 at 2:38 pm
chael's post speech was the most entertaining thing of the whole night... whats with the hate cagepotato? not only did chael school bisping.. he schooled billy graham on how to speak
Palmtreeguy- January 30, 2012 at 12:53 pm
Ya Chael's promos hurts the UFC growth as much as Nick Diaz being an Asshole to everyone out there !!!!
TehBeej- January 30, 2012 at 12:39 pm
I thought Sonnen's post fight speech was hilarious!
ScarTissue- January 30, 2012 at 11:55 am
So it's ok when Josh Barnett rips off wrestling promos and does also fake wrassle over in Japan but Heel Sonnen doesn't get a pass. Got it.
intercept440- January 30, 2012 at 11:38 am
@google he isnt dead???
i could have swore he was...hmm.
there's always randy savage's corpse i guess.....OOOOHHH YEEAAHHHH. SNAP INTO A SLIM JIM!!!
PHISTAKUPHS- January 30, 2012 at 11:12 am
His trash talk was already stupid enough, now he's not even coming up with it on his own. What a dumb ass. What's next? Oiling up, wearing feather boas, and starting every sentence with " let me tell ya something mean gene".
beef_kurtains- January 30, 2012 at 10:22 am
*Golf Clap CP, long golf clap*

First, it's a stretch. Second, if Chael rips something off, go ahead and assume it's on purpose and he's referencing something tangible and important. He's smarter than you, trust me.
google- January 30, 2012 at 9:59 am

You scared me there for a minute, had to look it up, but mean gene is still alive.
TheWarsawExpress- January 30, 2012 at 9:57 am
btw Micheal Bisping should probably go up the standings for this loss.
bootystar- January 30, 2012 at 9:52 am
pure gold, nothing but rectum, no not net but rectum
intercept440- January 30, 2012 at 9:43 am
*golf clap*
great now all we need is stone cold steve austins music to cue while chael is talking and have him storm down to the ring and give him a stunner then have the crowd throw beers at him to drink...
maybe the'll replace buffer with mean gene's corpse next.
