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

Rashad Evans Drops Jerry Sandusky Joke, Chael Sonnen Declares Himself the ‘American Idol’ at UFC on FOX 2 Press Conference [VIDEO]


Got an hour to spare? Then check out the full video of yesterday’s UFC on FOX 2 press conference, which was held at the United Center in Chicago and featured all six fighters that would be headlining the show. Here are some of the highlights, most of which belonged to the Gangster From West Linn:

Chael Sonnen on his checkered past: “I actually held public office, and I left the only way a person should — in handcuffs.”

Sonnen on his illegal kneebar during a college wrestling match with Mark Munoz: “Mark’s explanation of ‘heat of the moment’, I appreciate that but I can assure you it was a calculated and premeditated event, and I offer no apology. And secondly, I don’t even remember college. I’m driving around in a car with no insurance, a pocket with no money and the biggest thing on my mind was which kid to sit next to on exam day, so as far as a wrestling match, that was about the fourth thing on my mind. I assure you on January 28th, I will be ready. It will be one more in the win column, one more above the mantle, and one more for the bad guy.”

Michael Bisping on Dan Henderson’s recent tweet regarding Anderson’s injuries: “Well he’s just another person that had his shot, weren’t he? I seem to remember him getting tapped out just like Chael did, so both of these guys have a problem with submission defense. If he’s bitter about it, don’t talk shit about me about it just because you blew your shot.”

Sonnen on humility: “I think everybody up here is grateful to be on FOX. They say, ‘FOX, thanks.’ Everybody but me. I would say, ‘FOX, you’re welcome.’ You’ve been telling people for years you’ve got the American Idol and now you finally do.”

Sonnen on fighting Mark Munoz: “Everybody’s got guys they don’t want to fight, and Mark is definitely on the top of my list, and not just because I like him. Because he’s a hard match — I’ve competed with him before and I’ve never beat him. But look, we have to do this, and on top of that, Mark and I agreed to fight to set an example for the rest of the guys. This is just competition. Basketball players don’t not play each other because they’re friends, or they practice together, or any other excuse that guys have for saying no. The answer is yes, and we will compete and we will shake hands and we will live with the result.”

Rashad Evans: “I prefer to bring out the knockout [artist side of himself as opposed to the ground-and-pound side] because Phil, he needs to get knocked out.”
Phil Davis: ”Glad you mentioned that because one of your buddies, Jon Jones, said you don’t have much of a chin.”
Evans: ”You’ll have to find out for yourself, right?”
Davis: ”I was already thinking that!”
Evans: ”I bet you won’t be able to put your hands on me, though…I guarantee you’ll be the first one to take a shot…’cuz I’m gonna put those hands on you worse than that dude did to them other kids at Penn State.”

The audio fades out at the 1:10:20 mark, but if anybody knows what was said here, let us know

I don't care about Rashad's joke but to me it could be taken as far more offensive than what Miguel Torre said. Miguel's joke was about rape but it did not get specific where as Rashad's joke was about a recent offence involving child rape, much worse IMO. Miguel's joke was on par with Forrest's joke a few months ago, both mentioned rape but didn't get specific and Forrest gets a slap on the wrist while Miguel gets fired, a serious double standard.

Phil Davis' acting career:

That was pretty adorable. Phil Davis trying to get cute with Rashad. First off, who the hell is Phil Davis? Its not a rhetorical question...i think he's had a few fights in the UFC, but honestly...who is this guy? 9-0-0 with 5 fights in UFC. Its a respectable record but with only two finishes that were some what impressive over guys we dont recognize. Rashad will annihilate, dominate and anally lacerate this Phil "?" Davis character. Buhlee dat.

Phil Davis is an undercover brother?

I think you will find that we are all one chromosome away from being retards.

I think Chael is a funny motherfucker, no doubt about it. I think he is the king of fight hype. I also think he is a tad unstable, and is just one chromosome away from being a mental retard, but that is what makes him , HIM, and he is a funny dude for it.

chael sonnen is fucking hilarious. if people don't like him by now they have absolutely no sense of humor.

@Fried Taco
Bisping uses "F" when pronouncing "th".
And if you want to learn to read lips all you have to do is watch english movies with english subtitles and turn the volume lower and lower until it's on mute. It's the best way.

Bisping says: "I don't f/think so mate! That's what you always say, and you're always wrong!"
Fried Taco- December 8, 2011 at 7:59 am
The first part kind of looks like "I don't feel so bad" - really need to know what someone was shouting in the audience to understand the context.
Fried Taco- December 8, 2011 at 7:57 am
Second part Bisping says is "That is what you always say" and then I think he says "and you're always wrong".

It would be one thing if Chael talked so much and didn't back it up, but he goes in there ready for war every fight so that makes it even better. Put him and Bispin on TUF that would be the highest rating yet.

Gross, Rashad. I'm not watching that fight anymore if that is his game plan.
fuji311- December 8, 2011 at 7:20 am
Sonnen is the trolls champion. And I love him.
SnackDaddy- December 8, 2011 at 7:11 am
I would marry Sonnen if he'd give me the privilage.
Sloppyspray- December 8, 2011 at 7:02 am
That's pretty good by Rashad. I didn't know Phil went to Penn State. But, you know he was waiting all day to say that line. He probably had that planned out for weeks.

Chael Sonnen is my new favorite fighter. they need to make him a coach on TUF. Now!
