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

Video: While You Were Enjoying the Holidays Chael Sonnen Was Pwning Michael Landsberg *Again*

(The question is, whose wife cooked him the steak?)

If you were busy getting hammered off of rum and egg nog and exchanging token gifts with annoying relatives you thankfully only have to see once a year, you may have missed Chael Sonnen’s second appearance on TSN’s “Off the Record” show Friday night.

Don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered, homies.

As usual, Sonnen took the reins of the Q&A early from “the ghost of David Hasselhoff” and barely gave them back the entire 13-minute interview.

Of note is the self-proclaimed “real UFC middleweight champ’s” revelation that he is done with Anderson Silva and will instead be seeking a superfight with Georges St-Pierre, Jon Jones or Junior dos Santos since he feels that “The Spider” is “no more a champion than the man on the Moon.” Whether or not he’s serious is a moot point since it’s up to the UFC when where and against whom he fights, but that doesn’t make the fighter who describes himself as “217 [pounds] of muscle, steel and sex appeal’s” banter any less entertaining.

“I don’t get caught up in that [weight class] stuff. Whan I became a fan of the sport it was in the early 90s and we didn’t even have weight classes. Everyone just kind of went out and competed with each other,” Sonnen explained. “I’ve never got caught up in weight. That’s something that was put in after I had already agreed. So whatever a guy weighs I don’t pay any attention to it.”

Sonnen also explained why he was so pissed off the last time he spoke with Landsberg and what drove him to walk off the set of the closed circuit interview and pointed out that he felt like he was going to be set up again by the Canadian host.

“You know, Landsberg, you’re being very nice to me today. I really don’t trust this. I’m getting a bad feeling here. You’re being a little overly nice to me. I kind of liked the perception of you I had when I showed up, which was disdain and now you’re winning me over to like being a nice guy. For some reason I don’t really like the feel I’m getting here,” he explained. “[The people who told you I was a nice guy] told you wrong. It’s just a disguise. I am candy-coated poison my friend. Trust me. And you’re the one that showed up with mascara running down your face, holding a box of chocolates and a DVD wanting to make up. You shouldn’t feel bad about it because one day, sooner or later, they all come to the champ and they all kiss the ring.”

Line of the interview from the Gangster from America:

“I find it inappropriate that we would talk sports while the Turkish government continues to deny Armenian genocide,” Sonnen stated flatly. “Let’s get into some real news here.”

@Kurgarra u Galatur

He has taken some shots at Matt Hughes and Rich Franklin to name a few.

And i'm pretty sure XENOPHON is high 24/7.
XENOPHON- December 28, 2011 at 8:45 am
Your alright bro, your on the "A" list, not clumped together on the "B" list. That's why they are so angry. They spent their lives as the "B" league. Yet, here we all are on the "C" List like caged potatoes.
Yes MOFO I was grinning. You are (not your) not the only stupid dummy around here that I like to see post.

RwilsonR wins many internets..
Sonnen should get another crack at Silva. Muñoz, prepare for my voodoo schtick
Mofo- December 27, 2011 at 10:22 pm
@todd - oh god I can't believe you said that. YOU EEEEEDIOT. Now xeno is grinning ear to ear and his appetite is sated for another cycle of the moon. And then he will have to feed all over again.
Todd M- December 27, 2011 at 9:21 pm
To me Xeno is the Chael Sonnen of CP, Even when I don't agree with him I have to laugh, I just can't quit either of them.
RwilsonR- December 27, 2011 at 9:10 pm
Can someone please pry the schtick out of XENO's ass and beat him to death with it?
tysonmcneely- December 27, 2011 at 8:31 pm
Anyone else notice Chael thought the N in ESPN stood for news? Maybe not a big deal except when you realize that he works for them on MMA live. Or is creating new acronyms part of his schtick?
cursed5- December 27, 2011 at 8:29 pm
Am I somehow involved in this intense battle between xenophon and ccman because i used the word "shtick" in my post? Sweet.
RSparrow- December 27, 2011 at 7:47 pm
Don't talk back to me MRuss!!! You guys cant take breaks. Did Seal Team 6 take a break?
Mike Russell- December 27, 2011 at 7:10 pm
RSparrow....Some of us were off for the weekend celebrating the holidays, hence the headline.
confusean- December 27, 2011 at 7:03 pm
Bravo to Landsberg for putting up with this no talent ass clown
ArmFarmer- December 27, 2011 at 6:02 pm
I really love Chael's shtick.
RSparrow- December 27, 2011 at 5:32 pm
This interview happened on FRIDAY. Damnit CP
XENOPHON- December 27, 2011 at 5:28 pm
Your all fucked up. I am not married, and never mentioned anything about Montana.
Tell me, which other profile do you think I have?
Your like weak-sauce, take your Shtick and go to the Indian casino to learn how to play cards without leaving a tell. One of the key skills most good poker players have is the ability to read their opponents at the table. In this case, you have been rolled up, and outed.
Wonder how long you will try to keep the "shtick" up? Before you reply, search the Cage Potato website for the work "shtick" and look at the screen names who use it. Bingo. Your goose just got cooked in front of your subscribers.
..oh and lose the sidekick with the "asshat" comment. You can search that one too...all courtesy of CP and GOOGLE
ccman- December 27, 2011 at 3:27 pm
Xeno. Please only direct your comments to your other profile or address me as king cock like your wife does. I know your still buttsore from me blasting your make believe laws arguements and Montana mountain side conspiracy theories but move on.
XENOPHON- December 27, 2011 at 3:00 pm
So you also seem to have an affinity for the term "schtick"...
Uhmmm, I think there is a pattern with all these online screen names that "schtick" it to the people who frequent this Potato Nation.
...some one is lying again.
HandsofGold- December 27, 2011 at 2:15 pm
So he is from America he should be rooting for the Americans. Thats part of the problem with this country already. Everyone looking out for other countries while in the mean time we are going under. WAR CHAEL BITCHES
keepyahguessing- December 27, 2011 at 2:05 pm
cursed5: so he does some blow before his best interviews?
cursed5- December 27, 2011 at 1:56 pm
I can't believe people think this is real. Sonnen is the Morton Downey Jr. of MMA. Pure shtick.
soultaker- December 27, 2011 at 1:34 pm
Sonnen is classic and a refreshing personality in the UFC. On top of it all... he can kick some SERIOUS ass. Good luck to him and I am a fan.
SnallTrippin- December 27, 2011 at 1:19 pm
I find it amusing he's on Facebook during the interview...
Kurgarra u Galatur- December 27, 2011 at 1:07 pm
While I love listening to him, after a while, his rhetorical strategy gets kind of creepy. He *only* speaks ill of guys not from America. Jones gets passed by, Stann gets complimented (not in this interview though). He jabs only at GSP, Silva, Wandy, Noguiera bros, etc.

MMA is an international sport. I've never heard Chael criticize an American. This makes me want to yell alternately, "Fuck yeah!" and "What the hell is he doing?"
Mofo- December 27, 2011 at 12:17 pm
@warsaw - Good point. But Blackzillian is.
HEY- December 27, 2011 at 12:09 pm
You can kiss the ring but you can never touch the crown.
TheWarsawExpress- December 27, 2011 at 12:06 pm
@Mofo: Brazilian is not a race.
