Sonnen Explains How Easy It Is To Manipulate Wanderlei

“He is so stupid, I’m ashamed of him. He is a checkers player. In checkers you play one move at a time. If you are a chess player, you have to guess what I’m going to do and plan your next move, you have to be three or four moves ahead. He is so stupid, and I’m not trying to offend him, stupid is a word for a real thing. He comes and say: ‘the show stops if you don’t apologize for what you said about Brazil’. He did what a real checkers player would do. He would never imagine that I would refuse to apologize. When I refused, all what he could do was give up. He put himself in check, I didn’t do that. The show stopped and was almost over. They had to call Dana White and the producers. I begged him to come back and he didn’t. So he called for a cab and the cab came. One producer had to stop him in the cab and make him come back.”

“The producers told me that maybe I should apologize. I said: “No, I can’t. It’s not an ego thing, I don’t blame myself for any of that. I can’t apologize because they will be just meaningless words. I’m happy because I did that. I thought it was fun and I could do it all again today.” Wanderlei asked me why I couldn’t apologize and I said it worked, I wanted to fight against Anderson Silva, I got the fight and I liked saying what I said. It was fun. I could do it again today. Wanderlei was so angry, he looked like a cartoon character with smoke coming from his ears.”

In a recent interview with the Brazilian Media, UFC middleweight fighter, Chael Sonnen, discussed one of his many episodes with Wanderlei Silva.

What’s going to happen when these two finally step into the cage for a fight?
