“(I’ve never seen) even anywhere near him. Seriously – and everybody’s going to go crazy over this – but I’ve never seen anyone who can talk like this guy can since Muhammad Ali. Seriously. Since Muhammad Ali – the stuff that just comes right off the top of his head, and is hilarious. And you don’t know what’s real and what’s not real.”
UFC President Dana White recently told the people over at heavy.com that he thinks Sonnen is on the level of Muhammad Ali in terms of his trash talking ability.
Sonnen has single handedly carved out a reputation of being the sports rudest and most offensive fighter, however it has simultaneously launched him into super stardom. Fans seem to love Sonnen and when he speaks, people listen; it also helps that he can fight a little bit too.
Is Dana correct in his assessment? Is Chael Sonnen MMA’s version of Muhammad Ali?featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
