Sonnen No Longer Interested In Wanderlei Silva Fight

“I’m not looking for it anymore, I don’t like to bully guys. I tried to fight him, he doesn’t want to fight. I’m not gonna stick a finger in a guy’s chest. If a guy says ‘no,’ I’m not gonna be a jerk about it.”

Taking to his desk job on the “UFC Tonight” set, Chael Sonnen made a shocking announcement that he is backing off the Wanderlei Silva fight.

IS this a ploy to get the Brazilian to step up or is Sonnen’s statement genuine?

    I have two words for Chael: PUS-SY

  2. Big J says:

    It’s a sales tactic, it is called the take-away…

  3. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    Nonsense…Wandy already said he’d love to fight him and break Sonnen’s nose with his knee. So Sonnen got scared.

    Who cares what he says please take him off the payroll…..Oh yeah Wand did reply. Chael got scared and yes I agree he is acting like a pussy. I hope he is never allowed to make anymore money from fighting in the UFC. He has made a mockery of the company, and Dana let him do it. Wand is legend and the man. Who cares what kind of tactic it is tell this dude to take a hike!!

    Sounds like Chael’s mouth wrote a check that his ass can’t cash!

    All this talk about Chael making a mockery of the company is BS. He almost beat Silva the first time and whilst he lost the second he competed. If Sonnen and Silva fought 10 times, Chael would get a few wins it’s just that Silva would win more often than not as he is the best. And yes, he got worked by Jones but so has EVERYONE else – and they are from the 205 weight class

      TRT 16.9:1 is you answer He is 6:6 in UFC Ok.

    • Biza says:

      TRT is the answer

    • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

      If Silva wouldn’t have choked him out the outcome would have been overturned in a loss for Sonnen anyway. He pissed hot for 16.9:1 testosterone levels remember? The second fight he fought with ‘normal’ levels and we all know how that went.

      I don’t even dislike him that much anymore, he kinda grew on me during the last TUF season. He’s actually less of a douchebag than JBJ is.

    I’m tired of people saying Chael is past his prime, but nobody is saying anything about Vitor. Both use TRT, both lost to both Jon Jones and Anderson Silva, and Chael did much better than Vitor did. Where’s this talk of a “Mockery of the company” when talking about Vitor? Chael is an entertaining talker and talented fighter, and people dislike him because he calls out everyone.

    If people actually knew that Chael Sonnen is actually a great guy in person, when not being filmed or interviewed, I think he would have a lot less hate coming his way.

    JR#1 you are one silly mother fucker. He has had his pasted in every fight that meant something and believe me Dana gave him every chance in the book. Make all the excuses you want, but when he fought the title fights he got embarrassed. He couldn’t hold on for 15 seconds longer against AS. The other night I watched Commozzi get choked all the way out didn’t tap. I watched Hardy refuse to tap Against GSP and so many others. His pussy ass tapped literally as soon as AS put it on him…Get the fuck out dumb shit. AS whooped that ass huge in the 2nd fight. JBJ treated him like a little bitch in their fight. Hit the road asshole. Take Chael big mouth pussy with you…..Test I agree with the early comment about writing a check with his mouth that his ass can’t cash. Everyone can see what your mouth does for Chael though.
