Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Like a Typical Politician, Chael Sonnen Retracts His “Loser Leave Town” Remarks

(And for my next trick, I’ll make my transcribed threats disappear.) 

Who didn’t see this coming? Though we’ve long questioned/marveled at Chael Sonnen‘s mental stability, or lack thereof, his recent appearance on the Jim Rome Show has more or less confirmed or suspicions that most of what comes out of his mouth is utter bullshit. For instance, when asked if the “loser leaves town” scenario that he proposed to Anderson Silva during his post fight interview at UFC 136 was still valid, Sonnen, like a typical politician, said that the offer had expired. We’ll let “The Oregon Wankster” explain:

That was a spur of the moment type of thing. I’m trying to pick a fight with this guy…That offer was good when I made it, but it’s like any offer, you know, they’ve got to expire. Apparently, that didn’t work. I’m doing anything I can to lure him out, and yes, I would have absolutely done that. I’d have done a winner-takes-all, I’d have done any stipulation he wanted. All he needed to do was stand up and give me a thumbs up. He wanted to accept that offer, all he needed to do was nod to me, or have one of his handlers come into the back and says ‘Anderson accepts.’ He did the exact opposite. He went to the media and said ‘I do not want to fight that guy.’ So what can I do? Now I have to come up with a new offer.

Apparently an offer from Chael Sonnen explodes faster than one from IMF. And I gotta say, this latest move makes Chael Sonnen seem much less confident in his abilities heading into a possible rematch with “The Spider” than we’ve seen before. Then again, we’ve seen this kind of behavior on so many occasions that it’s getting harder and harder to take anything Sonnen says seriously. For instance, this is what Sonnen had to say about the possibility of a superfight between GSP and Silva in the future:

Me fighting the air is a bigger fight than those two turkeys … Apparently because I’m wildly popular … A mop and a garbage can in the ring with me would be more interesting than those two.

Truly the words of a “People’s Champion.” Then again, that title is really starting to lose some of its valor. Check out the full audio of Chael’s appearance below.

I just hope Sonnen's smack talk forces that yellow fool Silva to face him again. Sonnen will walk through him and finish him this time. No question about it !! Oh and Bossnasty get from under Silva's ballbag and get a grip of yourself !!!

The battle rages on, Listen Chael is an asshole but he is without a doubt the number 1 contendor and this rematch needs to happen. Anderson is possibly my favourite fighter and I think Chael has crossed the line with some of his remarks but for me that is all the more reason to want to see Anderson fight him again. I don't think Silva is ducking him either, he just chooses his words carefully, Dana said Anderson was pissed after hearing the 'Pat his wife on the ass' comments and I think Anderson wants this fight but he is taking the high road. I will not deny Soares trying to downplay this fight but if Dana signs the matchup there is no way Anderson will turn it down. Finally to the people who say Chael does not deserve a reamtch who else is there to fight Silva right now?

What can I say; I love those enormous, perfectly smooth Brazil nuts.

And don’t get me wrong--I actually like Chael, and I can’t wait for this fight. I just find people who disrespect Anderson entertaining.
BossNasty- October 19, 2011 at 6:11 pm
bunch of dumbshits. all these people swore belfort was going to do it then they said okami was going to do what chael couldn't now you circle right back around to sonnens nuts. hey cp I could use my dick sucked and you are just the fucking fags to do it. anyone saying sonnen was beating silva's face in is a fucking lie blinded by sonnens ballsac. facts are he out wrestled and completely controlled silva for four and a half rounds and during that time he managed to get his face beat to shit while in silva's guard. for those who are going to say i'm on silva's's not nut riding to tell the truth. blowing up a performance to act like your boy was some devastating in a fight he lost is the definition of being a sac riding fuckboy. this isn't to everyone but to those i'm talking to you know who you are.

There are more men fighting at 170 and 205 because of Anderson Silva than men fighting at 185 in the UFC. Who thinks that Anderson is going to be worse the second time he fights someone? Yeah, he is always weak after you let him feel someone out. Keep great white hoping.
Gobbleston- October 19, 2011 at 3:05 pm
RoJoegan, you do not get to call anybody a nuthugger. Possibly ever. You're hugging Anderson's nuts so closely that he thinks his low-fro needs a barber dedicated to it.
Secondly, you absolutely CAN'T compare Chael to Fitch. Look at the people after Chael fights them. There is no question that an ass-whupping took place, whereas Fitch.. well, mostly I just feel like my ass was whupped after watching him.
Don't get me wrong, I like Anderson. But I think it's weird that someone who claims to want to fight the best, and be the best, has no desire but to haunt a division where nobody available has any chance of beating him.

This is good. Talk trash if you want, but he's an entertaining guy who I don't want to see go away.
RoJoegan- October 19, 2011 at 1:30 pm
Just because I’m an idiot doesn’t make my opinion invalid. I’m all for the ground game, but you’re a fool if you don’t like watching Anderson fight. You actually prefer wrestle-fucking? You must be a big Fitch fan. I don’t blame Anderson for having control over his career. He’ll take the fight the UFC sets up. Fuck responding to Sonnen. This article is about how Chael’s a (low-T) pussy. I guess you’d call a Sonnen nuthugger a pouchhugger?

Can’t wait to see the fight.
Joedirt- October 19, 2011 at 1:23 pm
Silva, great or not knows his best chance of losing is Sonnen. I wouldn't be surprised if Dana put a stop to the "loser leaves town" idea... he'd be the real loser regardless of the outcome by losing either of them he loses one of his top fighters. AND fighters that are under contract to have more than just one more fight against each other.
JohnnyBlaze- October 19, 2011 at 1:19 pm
its funny how people can hate on A. Silva as he is one of the best P4P. he could KO most of the light heavyweights and already beat chael when chael was at his best. Silva doesn't give a fuck about what any of you think, hes a legit champion and has no reason to duck anyone.
joshuan29- October 19, 2011 at 12:12 pm
Im sure the thought of a Chael rematch isn't too appealing to Silva because Chael is perfectly suited to beat him. The second fight probably will look alot like the first one because Silva will not KO Chael, and Chael won't let Silva stand long enough to get dominated on the feet. Sonnen has obviously stayed in shape (see Stann fight) and if he will hang out with Maia learn some sub defense like was offered to him, I'd pick Chael to win this fight no questions asked.
Joe Rogaine®- October 19, 2011 at 12:04 pm
Sequence of events:

1. Chael beats Stann (a top contender) and become number one contender.

2. Chael calls out Silva and insults his wife.

3. UFC president Dana White states that Chael is the most deserving of a title shot.

4. Ed Soares and Silva's camp say Chael doesn't deseve a shot because despite kicking Silva's ass, he managed to get subbed seconds before beating Anerson in their last bout.
joshuan29- October 19, 2011 at 12:04 pm
I fully believe that had Silva stood up and accepted, Chael would've held up his end of the bargain. However, just because Silva didn't accept right off the bat doesn't make him a coward.

The facts are these: Anderson Silva is the best in the world until he gets beaten.
Chael Sonnen came within 2 minutes of doing just that in completely dominant fashion.
Chael is THE top conteneder to Silva, and the fight should be made.
HandsofGold- October 19, 2011 at 11:50 am

You shouldn't be aloud to speak on this matter your an idiot. Its obvious Andersons camp its trying to get out of this fight because they know that Chael is the only fighter in the division that has a shot at beating Anderson. You are one of those people who love watching Anderson fight people like Damian and watching Damian pull guard for five rounds huh.... Well i can speak for most people when i say its a lot better watching a guy "Chael" go straight after Anderson knocking him down in the stand up and dominating him on the ground, then to see a fag pull guard for 5 rounds just saying...... That is all.
SnackDaddy- October 19, 2011 at 11:49 am
As far as i know, Anderson Silva hasn't ducked this fight. All his manager said is that Anderson will fight when he's a 100% fit. why should he fight otherwise? And why should he be peer-pressured into fighting anyone? If the UFC thinks that Chael Sonnen is the top contender then they will sure as hell make a fight between him and Silva. I don't see what Sonnen is getting his panties in a twist about? Why should anyhting be on his terms? He thinks he can run his mouth and get what he wants, well fuck him. Also, Anderson has nothing to fear when it comes to fighting Sonnen. Anderson's fought much better fighters than Sonnen. Sure, Sonnen got a better of 5 rounds in their last fight, but those were under highly questionable circumstances. To think that Anderson won't be more prepared to fight Sonnen this time and finish him far more easily is actually laughable. You really think this douche stands a chance against the pound-for-pound best ever. Wow...

I love when internet folk accuse the best fighter in MMA history of being a coward. I also love when people even dumber than Sonnen excuse his insanity/hypocrisy—he’s made you his bitch and brainwashed you. This fight is not up to Chael, Anderson, of Soares—it’s up the UFC. Personally, I like that Anderson is not giving Chael exactly what he wants when he wants it. Silva won’t run from the fight when it happens, he’s just waiting for it to officially happen and not listening to the ratings of a low-T sociopath.
WarpedAcorn- October 19, 2011 at 10:30 am
The author has failed to sway me. As a Chael Sonnen fan, I know that the words that erupt from his mouth are a molten hot explosion of awesome. But as a Chael Sonnen fan I also know that his words are mainly entertainment. I had no illusions that the Loser Leaves Town stipulation would be shot down, if by no one else other than the UFC brass. But Silva really does not want to fight Chael again.
Kimbos Bread- October 19, 2011 at 10:28 am
How can you be considered P4P best when you're ducking fights?
How can you be considered a real man when you have to resort to telling the world you have no balls in order to weasel your way out of repercussions for cheating in professional sports?
Gobbleston- October 19, 2011 at 10:27 am
I bet one of his famous home invasions would get a fight out of Anderson.
But seriously though, my life is more enriched with Chael still remaining in the UFC if he loses. His antics are by far the best drama in the sport. I need them.
And really cage potato captcha? Himier? Raaaacist.
Magic Wandy- October 19, 2011 at 10:22 am
Anderson Silva is a coward.
intercept440- October 19, 2011 at 10:20 am
look people this isnt a hard one to figure out. that whole instance after beating stann was to publiclly hype the fight by getting the crowd into it. he knew silva wouldnt jump at the bait .
he also already knew head soreass doesnt want anderson to fight him again.
it worked getting the crowd into the euphoric yes mode he wanted, even though it was a faggy WWE style setup.
we all know chael is a lunatic anyhow. this shouldnt even be news period. unless he said something even more over the top than wanting to spank silva's wife's ass.
