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

Quote of the Day: Did Jon Jones Beat Some Much-Needed Humility Into Chael Sonnen?

(“And you tell Anderson that if he wants the true middleweight belt, he can ask me nicely and I will have it back by lunch!” Photo via Getty Images.)

When asked by MMA Heat’s Karyn Bryant about the likelihood of a potential fight with Wanderlei Silva next, Chael P. Sonnen recently stated the following (emphasis mine):

I’m not looking for it anymore, I don’t like to bully guys. I tried to fight him, he doesn’t want to fight. I’m not gonna stick a finger in a guy’s chest. If a guy says ‘no,’ I’m not gonna be a jerk about it. 

We shit you not, that quote (not the caption one, that’s fake and you damn well know it) came directly from the mouth of Chael P. Sonnen. As in the Chael P. Sonnen who once threatened to smack Anderson Silva’s wife on the ass. As in the Chael P. Sonnen who once declared that Lance Armstrong gave himself cancer through PED use (which to be fair, he got the PED part right). As in the Chael P. Sonnen who called Wanderlei Silva a “dirtbag” some three weeks ago when challenging him to a fight in the first place.

Either Jon Jones succeeded where Anderson Silva failed and managed to actually beat some humility into “The American Gangster” or Wandy’s threat to “suck his blood” was just a little too far outside the comfort zone of his Christian, conservative-Republican background to tolerate. Or Wandy has been offered the fight, turned it down, and is pulling another prank on us. Or Joe Silva dropped his cell phone in the toilet and hasn’t had access to the Internet since April.

Whatever the case may be, we suddenly, like, really need to see this fight. So touche, Chael. Tou-fuckin’-che.

-J. Jones

Maybe Chael feels less motivated to chase after Wandy because A) It's not a title fight and B) He's got the cushy analyst job locked up so he doesn't feel he needs to go after fights when the other guy isn't biting. He already succeeded in building his brand so he doesn't need to do the shit that got him the Anderson fights anymore.

This is just Chael's version of Hogan joining the NWO. The cocky heel gimmick can only stay fresh for so long.

Beartrap went snap!

And to be fair, Chael was very respectful, even complimentary to Jones even before the fight, and you gotta give props, he walked in KNOWING he was out of his league and showed up anyway.
Tough talk in here aside, not many of you have ever picked a fight you knew you were gonna lose. THAT takes balls (see what I did there?)

You have fallen right into Chael's trap.
