Sonnen Explains How He Talked His Way Into Jones Fight: “Chalk One Up For The Bad Guy” | UFC NEWS

“Let’s be clear. Nobody said Chael clearly doesn’t deserve anything. Let’s understand, not one of those fighters said “Hey Dana, I’ll fight Chael.” I called every one of those bastards out and I’ve got no problem slapping any one of them around including the Karate Kid. The only fighter to call Jon Jones out is me. Nobody calls me out and I never get hurt. They can whine all they want but not one of them has stepped up. They get jealous or envious of an opportunity but they never go out to the mound and make the call. I wanted it and I got it. I talked a cat out of a tree earlier today. At the end of it all, Ariel, good for me and chalk one more up for the bad guy.”

During yesterday’s tele-conference, Chael Sonnen discussed his abilities to get what he wants.

Check out the full audio from the call below:

    He probably still has Dana pubes between his teeth.

  2. BryanFury85 says:

    He’s right. He was the only one to step up and these whiny fighters want to complain when they had a chance and turned it down. Fuck all that he didn’t have anything to lose shit, at the end of day he stepped up and that’s why he gets the title shot. “Strike While Iron Is Hot”

  3. The Truth says:

    Not a huge Chael fan, but this is one time I can’t argue his point.

  4. Mik says:

    He is totally right all fo the other guys are fucking pussies and he is they only one who stepped up.
    Dan Henderson- had an injury three weeks before the fight and decided to tell the ufc 8 days before the fight, he is the reason ufc 151 was cancelled not Jones
    Lyoto Machida- turned down a fight with jon 8 days in advance and then turned one down a month in advance, he got two chances and turned both down
    – second his record since loosing the title is 2-2, and 1-0 since loosing his title shot he beat a 46 year old legend then got destryed in the title fight and then he knocked out a guy who is barely in the top 10, and he definately deserves it
    Mauricio Rua- in a fight with Gustafsson and turned down both oppurtunities to fight Jones and also turned down fight against Glover
    – record since last title fight 2-1 with wins against Forrest and Vera who isnt even in the top 10
    Rashad Evans- hasnt fought since being manhandeled against the champion and is talking so much but isnt fighting, also turned down a math with Glover
    – he says he isnt gonna be ready to fight until April, he barely fights and he wants a title shot

      Hendo did not turn the fight down, Machida had a mild knee injury amd didn’t even resume his training until about two-three weeks ago. Shogun could have stepped up, but that is about it.

      That said, I love Chael, I hate Chael, I love to hate Chael, I hope Chael beats Jones, then I hope the “Karate Kid” slaps Chael around and Chael can remain the bad guy, because I have a feeling the rumored “Nice guy Chael” would come out if he was champion. And that just can’t last. It would be horrible. Lol

      • Mik says:

        I just feel that nobody in the light heavyweight division has really earned the shot, like Machida’s record isn’t good but it is the best so he is considered the number 1 contender. Giving Chael the shot allows the light heavyweight division to sort itself out create real number one contender. Also Chael will definately make it an entertaining TUF giving it the revival it needs and he will definately hype the fight making it interesting.
        These are the matches I would like to see:
        Rampage vs. Glover
        Machida vs. Henderson
        Griffin vs Bonnar
        Shogun vs Gustaffson (I know its already happening)
        Davis vs Bader
        and Rashad vs well Rashad probably wont do anything
