Emilio Estevez Isn’t Impressed With Chael’s Letter to Anderson Silva [VIDEO]

(“When I was a teenager and I was having problems in West Linn, my mom sent me to live with my Auntie and Uncle in Bel Air. I’ll never forget how bad the cab driver smelled that took me to their house.”)

It appears the Gangster from America is back to his old tricks copping material and claiming it as his own.

You might recall that Chael “borrowed” his post-fight UFC on Fox 2 speech from former pro wrestler “Superstar” Billy Graham. Now it seems, as pointed out by several of our astute readers, that the number one UFC middleweight contender has claimed artistic license on a bit made famous by Emilio Estevez in the 1988 movie Young Guns.

In the scene, Estevez, who played William H. Bonney, AKA “Billy the Kid” in the flick, dictated a heartfelt letter to fellow Regulator Josiah “Doc” Scurlock, played by Kiefer Sutherland in which the outlaw seemed to be negotiating his surrendered to the governor of Utah.

Here’s the video and transcription:

Dear Governor Axtell,

I’ve heard that you will give 200 dollars for my head. Perhaps we should meet and talk. I am at the Juarez village at the border. Send three men and instruct them not to shoot, as I am unarmed. In short, Sir, I surrender.

Your obedient servant,

William H. Bonney.

P.S. I changed my mind.

Kiss my ass.

Sonnen recited an eerily similar letter to nemesis Anderson Silva last night during his weekly “Piper’s Pit”Chael’s Corner” segment on Fuel TV’s UFC Tonight, proclaiming a truce and relinquishing his title shot this summer.

The only thing missing was the bathtub and the cigar.

Over the last several months, I’ve disparaged your name in an attempt to garner respect and attention for my own. That was wrong and I apologize. My actions were unsportsmanlike. They were uncalled for. Though they weren’t mean-spirited, I do regret them. As you know, I’ve recently become the number one contender, which is a position that respectfully and immediately I am resigning from. I wish no further confrontation with you in the Octagon or through the media. In short, I surrender.


Your friend, Chael P. Sonnen

P.S. I changed my mind.

Anderson, you can kiss my ass.

Come on, Chael P. Mencia, At least come up with your own schtick.

Next thing you know he’ll be ripping off Mr. Belvedere.

That video was great. Typical Chael. I can't wait til the rematch.

Chael is hilarious, anything to poke fun at Anderson Silva. But this time around, I don't think he is going to do as well against Silva as the last time. Silva was obviously hurt and still managed to win, Chael blew his chance.

"The Win is out there, you pick it up, it's yours. You don't--I have no sympathy for you. You wanna go out in that Cage, tonight and finish, FINISH- it's yours. If not you're going to be shining my Championship Belt."

Can all you Silva nut huggers get over yourself? DO you even know what Sonnen did to get charged in the Real Estate Scam? Probably not. Let me clear it up for you fools. He was advised by 3 people way higher on the food chain about an investment scheme they were working on. After much persuasion he gave in not knowing what the true situation really was. He was duped just like the ones who lost money in the scam. Thats why he testified against all those 3 guys and was let off with a slap on the wrist. It was his idea nor did he help to orchestrate any of it. Big fkn deal. We all would have taken the deal to make some coin. So get over it Brazilian cock lovers.

Streaks on the china, never mattered before ... WHO CARES!?!?! Fuck yeah, MR. F'N BELVEDERE.

We all know that Chael did this b/c he knows that this movie hasn't been released in Brazil yet. He's just hoping that it gets released soon and everyone in Brazil will think that he was the originator and the movie copied him.

Chael's version was better.

The amount of time this guy must spend thinking about what he's going to say in his next interview is just mind boggling. He seems like one egotistical son of a bitch. And I love it! Go, Chael! I just hope you don't get murdered in Brazil before the fight actually takes place.

i see very little comparison between both of the speaches, just liberal spin
RwilsonR- March 7, 2012 at 10:50 pm
So what does the "P" stand for?
ArmFarmer- March 7, 2012 at 9:46 pm
Get off me sure is going to be upset when Anderson gets manhandled by Chael for 5 rounds. That's going to suck. Also, palmtreeguy is either a dumbass or a troll.

Chael is cool. It just disappointed a bit by not doing original stuff. It really should not be that surprising given his background but disappointing nonetheless.

"Silva drawing badly after the Maia fight" He fought Chael and the buyrate was 600k... Maia was 500k buys, Forrest was 850k, Leites was 650k and Vitor was 725k... Don't confuse a fighter cleaning out a division and the company not being able to offer quality challengers with a fighter not wanting challenges or not wanting to be entertaining... Please make the argument that Chael saved Silva's draw power/fan interest though, I'd like to hear how a guy who got cut by the UFC, came back fought on undercards, always to decisions or only losing inside the distance ended up saving Silva's drawing power? April 1st is a ways away my friend. Again, Silva has done so much for Chael, but the shows over and you will understand inside a year from now, just how little influence Chael has had on Anderson's career as well as the UFC in general.
edhedicus- March 7, 2012 at 5:45 pm
That is the funniest thing I have seen all day! You can tell that even Chael has a hard time believing some of the shit that comes out of his mouth. As much as I like watching him perform in his attacks on Silva, and he is fun to watch fight, I cannot wait until he is retired and a broadcaster. Lets not forget that this is supposed to be entertainment.

You can drown in a tea cup, if you can find a big enough tea cup.
ccman- March 7, 2012 at 5:25 pm
@get off me, I disagree, lest we forget spider was drawing badly and getting nothing but ire after the Maia fight. He had to many lazy performances and the 2 dance and showboat fights and his draw power was rapidly dropping. I defended him on this for a while but it was very apparent he didnt want challenges nor be entertaining anymore You could easily make the arguement Sonnen saved Silvia's draw power/fan interest.
ccman- March 7, 2012 at 5:18 pm
I'm pretty sure it was young guns 2 and I'm also positive that was my comment about it this morning. Anywhoo, don't matter, spider won't respond.
