[VIDEO] Chael Sonnen Goes Back to His Old, Asinine Self, Blames Loss to Silva on “Misunderstanding of the Rules”

(This tender moment is brought to you by the word: clownshoe.) 

As we mentioned earlier this week, Chael Sonnen is basically the living reincarnation of the legend of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He has the capability to come off as a reasonable individual, but more often than not, he chooses to drink that devilish potion, the proceeding surge of bravado almost always coming at the cost of his sanity. Where as Dr. Jekyll becomes a prostitute murdering madman upon drinking said potion, Sonnen reverts into a compulsive liar on such a ridiculous level — spouting claims of certain cycling legends and PED use — that he all but but erases the belief that he is one of the more intelligent figures in the sport today.

Take his recent interview with Jim Rome, in which he discussed his upcoming title fight with Anderson Silva, set for UFC 148 on July 7th. As he did while on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Sonnen talked about the perceived danger of accepting the rematch in Brazil (as was the original plan) as well as his claims that Silva is a “fake Brazilian.” But you don’t start to smell the fish, so to speak, until his UFC 117 loss to Silva is brought up. After Rome gives the viewers a quick recap of the fight, Sonnen drops this beauty on us:

I am so happy you brought that up for the viewers who may not have seen this…what had happened was an absolute misunderstanding and misapplication of the rules by me. We’re in the fifth and final round, he locks on a submission, and I acknowledge that he has it tight by slapping my hand on his leg.

I tapped. So what I thought is you go to the cards. I win four rounds, he wins that round. Apparently, if you tap, it ends the entire contest, which I was not ever made privy to.

Jesus f’ing Christ. Words cannot even begin to describe the amount of facepalm that is necessary for that aneurysm-inducing bit of drivel. It is as if he is having a four-year old with a inoperable brain tumor scribble out his interview answers in crayon, knowing damn well that the child does not posses the ability to spell “inoperable” or “crayon.” Bill Clinton could not dream up a more ham-fisted response if you were to give him the third runner-up of Miss Plus America, an empty hotel room, and all the time in the world.

Rome is similarly perplexed by this ludicrous claim to end all ludicrous claims, asking, “Isn’t that what a tap is? You tap out and you’re done.”

“Apparently it is,” Sonnen retorts, somehow managing not to turn to the camera and wink whilst doing so.

But Rome, the brave soul, presses forward. “Chael, come on, you don’t know what it means to tap?”

“Well I do know, but at that time-” says Sonnen.

“But you didn’t before then?” Rome cuts in, a fresh stream of blood now trickling down his nose.

“I gotta plead ignorance on this, Jim. Had anybody told me that tapping would cost me the entire bout, and not just the entire round…

I don’t remember how the rest of the interview goes because I blacked out while typing that last line. Judging by the way the fruit punch I was drinking is splattered from wall to wall across my room, I apparently had a seizure as well.

Not to argue with you, Chael, because its clearly a futile effort, but unless we’ve all been in a coma these past 10 years, we’re pretty sure that the seven other motherfucking people who have tapped you out before Silva should have gotten that notion through your head by this point.

Where any other TV host would have probably stood up and stormed off of their own set, Rome continues to press Chael, and we’ll give him this, he almost manages to make Sonnen admit that he was lying. Almost. That by itself is more of a feat than even the mighty Joe Rogan could accomplish in a good two and a half hours, so a tip of the hat is in order for you, Mr. Rome.

Check out the video below. The pants-shittingly stupid back-and-forth begins around the 4:10 mark.

You know, for a site that bemoans when your sarcasm and varied ways of fucking with people go awry, you should be the FIRST to see he's fucking with Rome. I say good since rome became an idiot the nanosecond he landed on TV. I'm under the impression Sonnen doesn't take Rome serious and enjoys kicking him. I'd bet if you tracked crazy Sonnen vs sane Sonnen and the media present, that dictates more of it than anything.

If CP still wonders why they lack UFC press passes, I refer you to anything by J. Jones and the "I deleted the last round of play-by-play" guy. If they're one and the same, at least your idiocy is centralized.
BigBalluh- May 18, 2012 at 10:02 am
ALSO in joes interview, Chael says "fighters don't have to say anything true, they are not paid to talk truthfully their paid to fight" So chael basically admits he IS a troll in that interview. sooo in a way he did. nice job bud
BigBalluh- May 18, 2012 at 10:00 am
and Chael didnt lie a single time during the Rogan interview, so Joe didnt have to make him "admit" anything. Cant tell if your trying to troll us by acting like an idiot or what but its funny either way
BigBalluh- May 18, 2012 at 9:59 am
lol CP got trolled, HARD.
thenutman69321- May 18, 2012 at 8:49 am
Lol apparently CP writers don't get the most obvious sarcasm ever. Words cannot express the amount of facepalm needed after reading this article.

CP writers don't get sarcasm. Way to prove your idiocy fucktards.

Sonnen is so hilarious. I love how he gets chuckles out of Rome even though Rome is trying to remain professional. But I really hope Sonnen is training as much as he has been promoting the fight or he is going to be in a for hurting in July.

Check out this article about him

Why didn't Chael tap at the start of round 4, since he already had 3 of 5 in the bag?

Since everyone is so clever in understanding Chael's "gimmick", I wonder if anyone see's the troll job show's like SPIKE mma uncensored live and former ESPN, now with CBS sports Jim Rome pull on the UFC anytime they cover Chael Sonnen... Chael shows up to push the book(5 secs of interview) the UFC is mentioned once or twice and the rest is making a mockery of Chael. For a man with the VIP pass to enlightenment, Chael thinks he's got the world eating out of the palm of his hand, but he's got a VIP pass to obscurity in about one year from now.

I guess it's the same guy that deleted all his text during a play by play

"I don’t remember how the rest of the interview goes because I blacked out while typing that last line. Judging by the way the fruit punch I was drinking is splattered from wall to wall across my room, I apparently had a seizure as well."

lulz. Get a job hippie.

KIZ NIZEL - You're an idiot. What he is saying is that upon waking only to find fruit punch splattered all over the place he came to the conclusion that he must have suffered a seizure during his blackout. To read this as though he is texting during the entire event shows that you have the comprehension skills of a fucking turd-shoveling half-bred twat. BTW, the real lulz come from stupid ass trolls (like yourself)that fuck up their insults, showing everyone just exactly how fucking stupid they are. This article was very well written, and quite humorous.
kiz nizel- May 17, 2012 at 5:53 pm
who writes this shite?
Capital- May 17, 2012 at 4:05 pm
LOL,,are you so ignorent you have nu clue what his doing???
Clyde- May 17, 2012 at 3:55 pm
Old news guys. He's been said this over a year ago and he was clearly taking the piss. We know he's aware of the rule because every time he loses, that's how it happens.

He was not on steroids dummy, his T to E ration was off, thats it. Poor Silva nut huggers will look for any excuse they can to make their hero seem invincible
styleofnostyle- May 17, 2012 at 2:44 pm
I love how everybody talks about "Chael was winning the fight" and "he was the closest one to? beat Anderson". This weirdo was on Steroids! Noone mentions that anymore. He got suspended for that shit. It's like everyone ignores the fact he was juiced. Dude looked wack against Bisping. He's gonna get served by Anderson. And I dont know why Jim Rome would even entertain his whole "i didnt know what tapping was" bullshit. gtfoh. shit is corny
thenutman69321- May 18, 2012 at 8:50 am
Many people (myself included) don't give a crap. I have no problem with anyone using steroids.

Chael after his next fight with Silva: "If I would have known falling down completely unconscious on the floor would mean the fight was stopped instead of just losing that round, then I wouldn't have done it."

Danga may have deleted his comment, but those of us who saw the comment are aware.
Irishwolfhound491- May 17, 2012 at 2:19 pm
If you guys seriously think anyone besides a complete MMA noob, let alone an entire MMA themed website, would take Sonnen seriously then you're retarded. CP feels just the same way I do about this: Yes we know he's acting, but it's still just as annoying. I'm pretty sick of Sonnen, he stopped being funny months ago and without him hyping the fuck out of it no one cared about this douche bag. First time I'll ever say this, but I hope Silva wrecks his shit and keeps the belt.
Casa de los pantelones- May 17, 2012 at 2:11 pm
Nothing more to be said, this is how you troll like a boss. C'mon CP...nobody on the planet is that retarded to not have realized that...
Caralho- May 17, 2012 at 2:07 pm
Trolled hard by Chael P Sonnen
