[VIDEO] Chael Sonnen Tries Out Some New Material, To Mixed Reactions


(Smallwood’s “question” begins around the 2:00 mark.)

Maybe it’s the newlywed bliss, maybe its the fact that he is coming off two of the more embarrassing losses of his career*, but in recent months it appears as if a new, more humble Chael Sonnen has emerged. Aside from calling Lil Nog a “chicken” — which is perhaps the finest compliment he has ever paid to a Nogueira — Sonnen has been flying relatively under the radar in regards to his upcoming fight with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC on Fox Sports 1:1. It’s almost as if he fears, nay, RESPECTS the Brazilian! (*record scratch*)

But just as the scorpion must sting the frog, Chael Sonnen must taunt the troll.

You peons can’t possibly understand what it is like, having so many awesome insults to use and so little time to use them. And worse, having so. many. jabronis to use them on — it’s exhausting. It’s also why the former middleweight title challenger, the current FOX commentator and UFC Tonight Host, the dancing destroyer, the king of sting…decided to test out a bunch of new burns on a fan (2-3 fighter Bill Smallwood) who dared question his place in the UFC during a Q&A in Las Vegas over the weekend, resulting in a rant that ended with Sonnen using what some would consider a racial slur and threatening to whip said fans ass. As you would expect, the attending audience loved it.

As you would also expect, some people — like Deadspin’s Tim Marchman — are losing their shit over this.

Urban Legend Alert: Rousimar Palahares Being Unfairly Blamed for a Leg-Breaking He Didn’t Commit


(True story.)

Rousimar Palhares‘s reputation for unsportsmanlike leg-breaking, terrifying aggression, and general insanity is well-documented, and well-deserved. But now that he’s being blamed for leg-murders he didn’t even commit, we felt it was time to step in to defend him.

This morning, as part of their Blood Week series, Deadspin linked to a photo of a man on a table, with his femur sticking out of his leg. If you really, really need to see it, just hit the “next page” link at the end of this post. [Ed. note: Don't actually do that.] As Deadspin writes:

Click through to see what happened to Isiah Ordiz’s femur after he wouldn’t tap out of a heel hook from Rousimar Palhares. I cannot stress this enough: this is a Faces of Death-level photo and you will wish you hadn’t seen it.

Immediately, my bullshit sensors went off. I researched an entire article about Palhares’s assholish history of leg abuse two years ago, and there’s no way I would leave out something this gruesome and dramatic, if there was any record of it on the Internet. The fact that this is surfacing now makes it suspect to begin with. Surely us MMA fans would have already heard of it?
