Oh, The Irony: Chael Sonnen Blasts Disingenuous Fighters on ‘UFC Tonight’ [VIDEO]


Chael Sonnen is back with more surreal statements in his latest “Chael’s Corner” segment for Fuel’s UFC Tonight. Here a sampling of Sonnen’s sincere and deep thoughts:

“Fighters have recently seen it as their quasi-job to continually put out misinformation.”

Recently? Naw that’s nothing new, Chael. Fighters have never had a problem, say, screaming in pain and tapping out to a submission, and then claiming that they did not. Heck, some guys have even gone on pr campaigns questioning the professionalism of refs who save fighters who ask for fights to be stopped. Maybe it doesn’t count as misinformation if the obvious truth is caught on live national television.

“[Some fighters] just refuse to answer a question, head on.”

True. Like, for example, answering questions with non-sequitor quotes ripped off from western movies and pro wrestling promos.

“There’s a tremendous difference between what fighters say vs. what fighters mean.”

I would imagine so. Like when Chael said on the radio that Lance Armstrong gave himself cancer by using steroids when, in fact, he must have meant that he himself was using performance enhancers in an unsanctioned manner while scamming people out of their homes with his day job.

“If a guy hits you hard and it hurts, is your ego so small that you can’t pay him a compliment?”

Agreed. Heck, we’d go so far as to say that should go for guys who lose by submission. I mean, what kind of insecure fighter would say that they actually won a fight like that¬†instead of complimenting their opponent and trying to improve?

Our favorite quote from this week’s Chael’s Corner is what he ends with.

“I don’t need to come to the media and lie.”

We’ll just let that one stand on its own.

we've been in the internet for so long so you guys should know what a trollbait/trollbaiting is. So yes he's one of the biggest trollbaits atm and most of you guys just don't get it and get pissed, offended, etc. Just sit back and enjoy the show. Uncle Chael is one funny guy and most people don't get it.

Oh I know. Let's idolize some jackass scumbag because of his clever wit and stolen punchline.
That will be clever and original on our part. After all he says everything that we can't even conceive but would like to say anyway. Imagine Silva with the same shtick now that would be a hoot. Unfortunately Silva barely speaks English so he's out of the idolizing spectrum. Really, who the fuck is this scumbag's audience?

@mDino Depends on what your headlines are? I mean who else have you discussed today? As far as I can see its only been Chael P Sonnen. So technically that would make it the top of your headlines. Wouldn't it?

Go away common sense and rational thought. I'm trying to watch Uncle Chael say funny things.
mDino- April 4, 2012 at 2:36 pm
@HandsofGold I just don't respect him as a person. He may be on the top of your headlines but not mine.

Christ. If you can't tell that he's clearly having fun with this whole ridiculous segment then you're a window licker. He's also one of the few people alive who actually revels in the fact that human beings are a fickle bunch and it doesn't take much to get a rise out of them. Dig the guy, dig his schtick (which his entire MMA "persona" absolutely is) and dig his fighting.

Chael Sonnen is an internal irony unto himself. He is simultaneously both the most sincere and disingenuous fighter out there, and I love every minute of it.
HandsofGold- April 4, 2012 at 1:44 pm
@mDino You don't care about him or what he says yet it bothers you enough to post a comment about him. Like I said before he will always be top of the headlines whether you like him or hate him.

So am I...

Don't mind me, I'm just bored at work.

Et tu, Elias?

Et tu, Dead-Cow? :(

Yeah the comments are ironic. Its part of what makes them funny.
The_Dead_Cow- April 4, 2012 at 12:16 pm
There's a troll here alright, but it's not Chael.
mDino- April 4, 2012 at 12:13 pm
sonnen is the ultimate troll. sure hes funny, but he has absolutely zero credibility. hes a scumbag human being even before he talks all this nonsense. this isnt the WWE chael, and i've officially stopped caring about anything you say. once anderson smashes you in the first rd, (ok, maybe rd 2) than no one will have to even pay attention to you contradicting yourself with anything that slurrs outta your mouth! i AM a sonnen hater, but I started out as a fan.

Roses are red

I'm schizophrenic
And so am I
Elias- April 4, 2012 at 11:51 am
Listen, logdog, my butt hurts, it's true. But what does that have to do with Sonnen's trolling?
RwilsonR- April 4, 2012 at 1:45 pm
I hear Dakota Cochrane has an ointment for that, Elias.
logdog52- April 4, 2012 at 12:10 pm
Fair enough sir, fair enough
logdog52- April 4, 2012 at 11:35 am
I'm not sure if you meant it this way but the article reads as if you think Chael was being serious. Like you actually think these comments are his honest opinion and not specifically designed to be ironic and funny (which your title hints at but the article doesn't seem to follow through on). I thought we have all agreed and recognized that the stuff Sonnen says is purely for entertainment and that he must know how much he contradicts himself. Right? We all know that and can laugh at it instead of getting butt hurt can't we?
HandsofGold- April 4, 2012 at 11:34 am
I can't wait to see what it will be like "if" Chael beats Silva in Brazil. Thats going to be insane.
