“Listen, you wanna really know what happened? Everything’s going fine. I’m minding my own business. I’m out there, in the middle of a fist fight. I look up–in between rounds–and this is a true story–I see Kenny Florian and he’s got like a buffet style [dinner] in front of him. He’s stuffing his face. And I get completely distracted. Next thing I know, the ref says ‘are you ready?’ And I’m thinking, ‘no I’m not’. And I’ve gotta walk out there anyway.”
Sonnen lost to Anderson Silva after a spinning backfist attempt went bad and he found himself stumbling to the ground. Silva finished the fight shortly after via TKO due to strikes.
