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

Video: The Official Chael Sonnen Trash Talk Reel


"We don’t have to fight. I issued him, in writing, I sent it over, my demands: He leave the UFC for no less than 12 months. He issue an apology to the fans. Simple things. And he erect a statue in my likeness in his living room that he bow to each evening. He didn’t accept ‘em."

Like the Ultimate Warrior before him, Chael Sonnen goes into a kind of fugue state whenever there’s a camera around, in which he’s only capable of making insane statements. The UFC has never made any attempt to muzzle the one-man promotional machine, and his mouthiness now seems to have the company’s public endorsement: This is the first time they’ve produced a highlight reel of a fighter just talking shit about their opponent, with no fighting clips whatsoever. Showing Sonnen lying on top of Dan Miller or Nate Marquardt would only interrupt the fun. Of course, it should be noted that this isn’t the Ultimate Talking Championship.

(Editor’s note: When Sonnen says "CP" at the 2:15 mark, he’s referring to his initials, Chael Patrick, not CagePotato. Though we could also kick Anderson Silva‘s ass if we wanted to, but we don’t, because what would that prove?)

Chael Sonnen hasn't been a guy to keep his tongue. Within the run up to their fight at UFC 117 he spoken more trash than any foe Silva has faced, in true Sonnen fashion obviously. Talking with The MMA Hour, "The Spider," had this to express.

To the CP staff, I would also like to put in for a list of "Greatest Shit-Talkers of MMA," but can we get the results of the relevant fights? Maybe we should wait till this one finishes.
PS, god day-aamm!! This dude's voice is annoying.

What was supposed to be a teaser to the fight is becoming extremely boring. Ok, fine, we got the message. Sonnen is brave, Silva is a fake fighter... bla bla bla

Please, stop posting Sonnen rants.

I think Chael must have negotiated for a cut of the PPV, and he is planning on retiring off of this fight. I gotta admit, I am pumped as hell to see this fight. It will prob be a hyooge disappointment, but Chael is right, people pay to see fights they are excited about. If he had done the same as Anderson, we would all be taking about how this fight was not that exciting of a matchup.

We've seen it time and time again, idiot! Talk the smack . . . receive your ass kickin' . . . . back to your doghouse with your tail between your legs.

If I wouldn't have know better, you are probably getting $10,000 to fight but make most of your money by sucking the people with viewership witnessing your pathetic self fail.

Go Silva . . . beat the toughest real estate agent of Compton.

Even Sonnen knows he isnt gonna win this fight. Look at the freeze frame above, he is clearly preparing to be caught in a RNC, get back to his old self and scream tap like the Choad we all know and hate.

this is the most trash talking ive seen, he better win this one or he'll be just a big joke in ufc.
he already IS the joke of the UFC.
Seriously there is no way he can back up that mouth he doesn't have a license to drive a truck big enough to haul that much shit.
I think it is sad, it's sad cause this dumbass is talking so much shit it might actually inspire Silva to dispatch with him early in round one, thus, keeping his job, and being talked about as being a badass again instead of the retarded dancing monkey that he is.
This is a losing effort all the way around. Sonnen is so batshit insane he will go right after him, he believes his own hype, and will get destroyed...and most likely run out of the cage without a soundbite or anything. It will be the worse fight ever, and fucking Anderson will come out smelling like a rose, instead of the striped ass ape he really is.
I am so disappointed, I really wanted to see Dana fire Anderson.....fuck you CHOAD sonnen for causing this.

I'd bet all my CP chips and maybe even some real cash that everyone who thinks Sonnen is funny is also upset that Mind of Mencia is off the air.

*whips out toilet paper*

You know, in order to mop up all that verbal diarrhea.

In all seriousness though, this guy is an expert in self-promotion. Nothing more. I don't think he even cares about winning the strap. He just wants to show everyone how good a talker he is. If after the fight with Silva we don't see those two hugging and waxing poetic on how talented the other one is I'd be shocked.

Every time i see the CP initial, I think you're talking about Child Porn.
sevvi- July 29, 2010 at 1:15 pm
Ha, you just gotta love this guys trashtalk. I wonder if he believes half of what he spews out. Oh well, let's hope for an entertaining bout atleast. I would love for him to win over Anderson. Personally i think Anderson acts like a douche and i just loathe him but. He is still an awesome fighter.
Omelette Platter- July 29, 2010 at 11:17 am
i hope ed soares is showing all these reels to anderson; maybe he'll actually show up to fight. also, i hope chael beats the piss out of him.

also, i'd like a pony.

p.s. - i'm just gonna leave that 'piss' comment there, if anyone wants it for a machida joke.

Im so sick of Sonnen... Im taking Anderson Silva 2nd round via Death...
Titos Head- July 29, 2010 at 11:07 am
HAHAHA! love Sonnen he cracks my ass Rat pissing on cotton! hahahaha

CP needs to do a top P4P list of trash talkers. Sonnen has jedi trash talking skills on the level of the jedi striking skills Silva showed in the FoGriff fight. This reel was epic. Can't wait for the fight!
BossNasty- July 29, 2010 at 10:43 am

Yes please fill us in on who the other 4 guys are.

Would bisbing be one of them?
Stak40- July 29, 2010 at 10:39 am

Dare i ask who else is in your top 5?
Stak40- July 29, 2010 at 10:25 am
Just because there is a thousand reels of Sonnens dillusions doesnt mean that CP has to post everyone of them! I dont even listen to the garbage anymore i just wait for Rex to tell me about it.

I feel that if you talk this much shit and lose you should automatically be fired! Of all the garbage that has come out of Sonnen's mouth his demads are possibly the only funny thing he has said.

BLUF: Fuck Sonnen!
Deadpanda- July 29, 2010 at 10:22 am
ROFL, holy shit! If all else, I want to see this fight. I want to see if this kinda shit talk will make Anderson show up to fight. I want to see if Chael can do what he says. I want to see one of these heels get punched in the face... a lot.
just some dong- July 29, 2010 at 10:16 am
"Incredible win, Anderson - you've proven once again that you are indeed the cream of the crop in the Middleweight division. Tell us how you're feeling right now."

"Chaow Sonnon... hava horseshoe up he ass... I tell him dis, year ago..."

Sakuraba3900- July 29, 2010 at 10:15 am
"he erect a statue in my likeness in his living room that he bow to each evening"

what a fucking beast... seriously Chael has snuck himself into my top 5 fighters I shamefully love.
Cronic- July 29, 2010 at 10:05 am
Him and Rampage need to negotiate a deal with the ufc so that in every fight they have a extra round of nothing but trash talking that is scored by the judges. That way they would probably at least win 1 round per fight. It would have to be prior to the start of the real fight how ever or they would just look / sound stupid with swollen lips ect ect.
Ballkick- July 29, 2010 at 9:59 am
There are no repercussions to someone talking shit,....unless you want to count the beating he is about to receive in just a little more than a week.

Chael is full of himself so much I must believe that it is only to self-aggrandize himself. A consummate self promoter that much I will give him. But I do not think he has the chops to dethrone Silva. Props to Cheal though,....he really believes he is the next champ and as his coach or corner man that's all I would want to hear.
