Chael Sonnen: ‘I got lucky against Shogun’
“Here is what you have to understand. I caught him, I got lucky. That was a lucky move. If we would fight ten more times, I would never catch that move again. But he has never said that. He let me have my 15 minutes of fame. He shut his mouth and walked out. I would do the same thing. But very few guys follow that code. Say what you want before the fight, but when it’s done, you accept the result. You let the other guy be happy, if he gets his hand raised, he gets his hand raised. Until this day, ‘Shogun’ has never said ‘that was lucky’ or ‘give me a rematch’ or ‘I didn’t feel good’. So, I’ll say for him. It was lucky and I don’t think that was the best ‘Shogun’.”
During his recent scrum in Brazil, Chael P. Sonnen discussed his first round submission victory over former UFC champ, ‘Shogun’ Rua.
