While making his media rounds this week to help promote UFC 148, Chael Sonnen stopped by the TMZ offices and made an appearance on TMZ Live.

In the video, Sonnen lays claim to misunderstanding the rules about tapping out against UFC champion Anderson Silva, telling Harvey Levin, “We fought for five rounds; he gets a submission in the fifth. Now I didn’t understand the rules, I thought if you tapped you lost that round, so I won the first four, and then he’s going to win the fifth and now we are going to go to the judges. Now it turns out, I’ve got to plead ignorance, but now I know.”

Chael also discussed his new book, The Voice of Reason, and why he thinks if you are a vegan, it just so you can use it as an excuse to be snob. At one point the entire TMZ office applauses Sonnen for some of his comments surrounding vegans and what Chael calls, “soy boobs.”
