Chael Sonnen

“Tim Kennedy is one cranky and bitter son of a bitch. Have you seen some of the stuff he’s saying lately? He’s threatening to never come back to the sport because he’s so upset about ‘stoolgate.’ This guys is one of these guys that, for me, he gets a pass. I’m an American, he’s an American hero. He served the country well. He did some things. He’s a hero. That’s where it ends. But the guy says some stuff that if he wasn’t a hero… Somebody needs to tell him to shut up. Tim, you gotta stop, man. You’re so bitter.”
Taking to his own Podcast, Chael P. Sonnen discussed Tim Kennedy’s recent gripe with the outcome of his last fight.

Michael Bisping was also in attendance, and the two discussed:

“They allowed the fight to continue, he got knocked out,” Bisping said. “What can you say? Take it like man and say, ‘Congratulations.’

“I completely agree with that,” said Chael. “The outcome of the fight is the outcome of the fight. You just walk away.”

“You can’t change history,” said Bisping. “You can’t change what happened. You got knocked out, you got finished. It’s not like he went to a decision and maybe [Romero] should have had a point removed. [Kennedy] got finished decisively. There you go. It’s the end of the matter.”

“Tim was so worked up about it,”
said Sonnen. “I’m going, ‘Tim, anything that you want to do and all of this anger, man, we’re for that before the fight. But when the fight’s done, when the pay-per-views are sold and when the cage is being torn down, shut up. Give the other guy his 15 minutes whether he earned it or was gifted it. Give him his 15 minutes and walk away.”
