Video of the Week: Chael Sonnen Says F*ck Canada or at Least This Reporter Who Lives There

Chael Sonnen lets reporter have it – Watch MoreFunny Videos

Our favorite quote generatorChael Sonnen was interviewed on Canadian sport network TSN today by infamous pot stirrer Michael Lansberg and let’s just say that if he was acting, he deserves an Oscar.

Things got heated from the very beginning when Lansberg asked the number one UFC middleweight contender why he “backed down” from the loser leaves town challenge he issued UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva.

“You might want to take the bass out of your tone, I’m not sure you know who you’re talking to here, but I’ve never backed down from anything, so check your facts,” Sonnen said. “If I tell you I’ll sell you my car for $10,000, do you think I can just call you back a year from now and say, ‘I’ll take the $10,000 for the car’? That’s not how offers work. Is that how you do business in Canada? Cause in my country, that created business, offers expire.I made him an offer, apparently it didn’t work, he didn’t accept it. It’s not that I backed down, but apparently I need to present him with a new offer. You guys probably don’t do that in socialism, but in America, in a capitalistic society, that’s how things work.”

When Lansberg attempted to further explain his original statement, Chael  seemed perplexed by the point he was trying to make.

“What are you talking about? What is this, your first day on the job? You’re mixing five different stories here,” he snapped. “This is like doing amateur hour or something. What show am I on here? Is this for public radio?”

The Gangster from America” genuinely seemed pissed off at the tedious line of questioning by Lansberg and he let the longtime host of “Off the Record” know that he wasn’t impressed with the interview, by continually berating him and eventually walked off the set in apparent disgust.

Besides firing continuous salvos at Lansberg, Chael also took potshots at Silva and UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre during the 10-minute interview.

What a stupid interview. It's like watching monkeys throw verbal shit at each other via video conferencing. That interview guy needs to tone down on the botox, seriously.

@ HandsofGold - Clearly you're incapable of reading and comprehending my post. Nowhere did I say that I though Landsberg did a good interview. Nowhere did I say I liked Landsberg as an interviewer. My point was that Chael was clearly caught off guard by someone playing Chael's own game of being intentionally controversial for entertainment purposes and Chael came across poorly as a result. Also, I was pointing out to Karma (who I don't believe is in Canada so wouldn't know) that Landsberg wasn't trying to make his career off of someone as unknown as Chael Sonnen when he has interviewed far more impressive athletes.
But thank you for demonstrating your ignorance.
fact- November 17, 2011 at 6:30 pm
chael didn't like the fact someone finally called him on his shit. he should have destroyed him worse than he did. sonnen kept saying he was the champ. what dimension is he the champ in. he doesn't have enough class to be on public radio either. anyone with a criminal record shouldn't allowed a voice.

isnt jim rome on radio now not t.v. and if hes on t.v. isnt it with fox not espn? i havent seen so many wrestling fans b4 on an mma site as for sonnen not being paid you fools he got paid by the ufc .theyre trying to see how well liked sonnen is up here so they can dicide on where to have the fight between him and anderson since anderson wanted it in brazil but sonnen refuses to go so canadas the next option, oh and when it came time to sign the loser leaves town fight sonnen wouldnt keep his stipulation meaning he backed out of the match.thats all mike asked. i hpoe this time around anderson snaps his fucking neck.

Wow,,is Michael Lansberg retarded or something?
Get Off Me- November 17, 2011 at 4:37 pm
Please read what I wrote again...If you don't get that I think Landsberg is an asshole(from what kangerpang said) wanna be Jim Rome than I can't help ya.
Maybe it's the BC bud you scored, but c'mon man.
I'm just pissed they cancelled the John Gallagher show and kept OTR going back in the day, Gallagher was always more entertaining and enjoyable to watch.
My brother is in fort mac so I got nothing but love for Alberta.

@ HandsofGold, Are you old enough to be here? I mean, how childish a statement is that? flyingogoplata has an opinion to share, suck it up kid!

What the hell are you talking about!!! Comparing Michael Landsberg to Jim Rome???!!! Are you on drugs???!!!
I'm from Alberta and I can tell you that there isn't a single person I know who would make such an idiotic comparison. Maybe is Montreal you can think that way but then Quebec is known for its stupidity.
Michael Landsberg is a complete idiot and he always has been. I have hated him for as long as TSN has been STUPID enough to have him on the air. I PRAY that TSN will finally see how utterly stupid this fool is, sadly I doubt they will.
Wolfger- November 17, 2011 at 12:31 pm
Can we please revoke Chael's citizenship? I really don't want him ever pretending he represents the USA again.
burkanuck- November 17, 2011 at 12:25 pm
Landsberg is an IDIOT!!! I cannot stand this arrogant moron. Hopefully TSN will catch on that this guy needs to go but I'm not holding my breath.

We had to have one fag in here sucking this reporters dick and you my friend are "That Guy"
MMAposeur- November 17, 2011 at 8:22 am
If this guy is the Jim Rome of Canada... well, that just doesn't reflect well at all upon Canada. I seriously thought it was some Canadian morning show host or something.
He wasn't being "in your face" he was being a troll. You can be "in your face" and intelligent about it at the same time, this guy was neither, he was trying to get a reaction out of a guy he knew would give him a reaction no matter what he asked. He was being annoying. He was asking questions that you might ask a composed and dignified athlete as a last resort to get a reaction.
Amateur hour is right.
jfjjfjff- November 17, 2011 at 8:21 am
people who don't like sonnen lack a specific human quality: a sense of humor. the guy is clearly a troll and does a hilarious job of being one. he did seem like he was in a bad mood though and being more evasive than usualy.
at the same time though it really was a lame fucking interview because lansberg was trying to be confrontational and measure his dick with "tough questions." but in the end, to all those who all those who lack a sense of humor, please realize that the hilarious part is that lansberg got just as shaken.
this is what is known as an "epic troll"
agentsmith- November 17, 2011 at 7:58 am
To be fair, Chael didn't "back down" from his challenge to Silva. Silva just didn't take the bait, so Chael reeled it in to switch it up to something different. That's what trolls do.
jjrdias- November 17, 2011 at 6:38 am
Why ask for more "WWE" in the UFC when you've already got Chael Sonnen working everybody and ribbin' fools?
jsnthms112- November 17, 2011 at 6:33 am
@flyingogoplata - Well said
ccman- November 17, 2011 at 6:23 am
I'm a spider Dan and a sonnen fan and here, sonnen is right. Anderson never responded, at the fight he hid. He does not want this fight and can't find a way oot, which is Canadian for out.
flyingogoplata- November 17, 2011 at 5:46 am
@ Karma - Landsberg's show is on TSN on Canada and is probably the longest running sports talk show in the country. Landsberg is known for being in-your-face. Chael's management should have maybe looked into this before agreeing to do the show.
And Off The Record has had a lot of guests a LOT more famous than Chael so I highly doubt Landsberg was trying to make his career off of Chael (FYI - he's interviewed GSP, Derek Jeter, Terell Owens, Lennox Lewis, Wayne Gretzky, Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin all of whom are far more famous than Uncle Chael) and none of these guys have seen fit to act like an a-hole and walk off the set.
flyingogoplata- November 17, 2011 at 5:35 am
Chael got flat out caught off-guard with the questions and stuttered around like an ass before deciding he'd try to turn it around on Landsberg. All he was asked was, did Chael back down from his offer about leaving the UFC if he lost to Anderson. Chael couldn't give a straight answer because it would mean admitting that he did.
I think Landsberg actually did a good job not being bullied by Chael. Guess what Chael, not all interviewers toss up easy questions like Helwani.
timbulb- November 17, 2011 at 5:29 am
So why did he back down? I still wanna know the answer.

Don't worry, it's going to be Rory McDonald along with GSP very soon.
RSparrow- November 17, 2011 at 12:00 am
What a fucking faggot ass reporter. Good job Chael, no offense to Canadians but can you please do a god damn interview without mentioning GSP. It kinda makes you look desperate and ridiculous. Get the fuck over it.
