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

Right on Cue: Chael Sonnen Picks Leben to Knock Out Wanderlei

Only days removed from his suspension, MMA’s best trash talker is eager to get his mug back in the spotlight. When asked his thoughts on tonight’s battle between fellow middleweights Chris Leben and Wanderlei Silva, Chael wasted little time in slinging some mud and continuing his verbal tirade on Wanderlei.

Neither Chael’s desire to face the “Axe Murderer” in his return bout nor his delusion that he is the Middleweight Champion have waned. The short video is peppered with gems which prove that Sonnen isn’t suffering from the dreaded mic-rust.

On how this fight will go:

“Eventually Wanderlei’s fights all end the same.  You know, the referee pulling his mouthpiece out and a doctor shining a flashlight in his eyes. Until that happens I think it will be a pretty fun match to watch, but I don’t think it’s going to be ultra-competitive. I think it’s going to be Chris Leben.”

On his next course of action:

“I’m looking forward to getting back in there and defending my Middleweight Championship.”

On who he’d like to fight next:

“Either of the Silvas, from Anderson Silva to Wanderlei Silva, but that’s just because I don’t like them, that’s not because they would do much for me.”

Yeah, Chael, I could see where a second shot at achieving your lifelong dream of being a UFC champion and avenging a loss to a guy that stole victory from your hands in the closing seconds of a bout is kind of a dead-end path for you. Hey, check your schedule, and if you’re free one weekend maybe you could pencil it in?

Welcome back, you magnificent bastard.

Yeah, I might have gone over the top there, but i assume you got my point? I just dont see how anyone can give this guy props for anything, he hasn't actually acheived a great deal in MMA, and nearly winning is just losing, anyhoo, enjoy todays fights and yer Holiday weekend Bro

I don't know fatbelly - listening to chael is like listening to women - ie their nuts and don't make sense, so you ignore it. But listening to Pisping makes me want to waterboard him.

My Opinion, he's a fucken assclown, fuck off Sonnen, your a fucken loser/cheat at everything you touch, I'd rather listen to Bisping on a permanent rewind than anything this fuckwad has to say

I'm sort of indifferent to Sonnen, but it doesn't make any sense to call out Wandy (like he's been doing for a while) if you think Leben is going to win. Shouldn't he be calling out the winner, or bisping (everyone else does).
