Video: Chael Sonnen Weighs in on UFC 134, Furthers Theories About Him Having Multiple Personality Disorder

Chael Sonnen is like bad sci-fi movie; you spend hours thinking “is this really going on?” only to have the rug pulled out from underneath your feet in the final act when the film tells you “It was all in your head the entire time.”

So goes his appearance on MMA Live yesterday. During a recap of the main event of UFC 134, in which Anderson Silva made Yushin Okami (a.k.a the man Sonnen had stated Silva had been ducking ever since his “loss” to back in 2006) look like a child lost in a nightmare, Sonnen flipped the switch quicker than that batshit crazy dude in The Green Mile. Speaking of, did you know THAT’S the guy who gotten all that attention for marrying that 16 year old prostitute or whatever?  All I’m saying is, the best actors often aren’t acting at all.

Anyway, Sonnen had this to say about Anderson’s performance:

“The bottom line is that Anderson Silva did an awesome job. He continues with his dominance, he’s such a good striker and what he’s really good at is keeping guys at range and having guys fight his fight.”

Wait, what?

Sonnen goes on to say that Okami simply didn’t follow the strategy, which can’t really be denied in this case, but then suggests that Okami possibly had the flu, resulting in him coming in a couple pounds underweight.

The key to defeating Silva, according to Sonnen, lies almost entirely in the mental:

“…people just aren’t getting over the mental side of it…it becomes very apparent when you stand around and watch Anderson in front of you. If you look at Vitor Belfort’s mouth, it was almost open and he was in awe right before the finishing strike. If you look at Yushin’s face, he’s almost in awe and wondering what’s coming next before the finishing strikes come.”

If one thing can be said about Chael Sonnen, it’s definitely that he isn’t in awe before the finish comes, but moreso after he realizes it was via triangle again. And that my friends, is the definition of irony.

Like rain on your wedding day, eh Danga?

Now it makes sense! I was confused for a second. But yeah, I see your point. It is funny how he has no problem saying two completely opposite comments about someone depending on the weather that day.

Regardless, I find this dude hilarious and one of the most successful public figure trolls (in mma) ever.

@ sloppy
I've become too lazy to write my name in every post, so I went with the shortest connection possible. And I'm not saying that Sonnen is wrong, but simply that its off-putting to see a man using words like "dominant" and "excellent" to describe someone he had previously said was "an easy fight", "a liar" and that he had "already beaten"

Holy shit, that girl's 16 going on 30. I bet he never even thought to ask her for ID.

I don't see the big deal.
a) I thought he always thought Silva was an excellent striker, just not the best mixed martial artist; and
b) everything he said here was completely accurate. His assessment of people basically getting hypnotized and turning into children b/c Silva drops his hands is spot on.

and who is Danga?

His opinion weil change right back by next week. After he fought Silva, he went around saying how hard Anderson hits, and blah, blah, blah. Then a few days later, he went right back to how he was the real champ, and more blah, blah, blah. At this point I just skip articles written about him. Except for this one. But this is the last time.
