UFC NEWS | Demian Maia Wants You To Know That It’s Obvious Sonnen Is Joking

“We have talked a few times. I think he’s very intelligent, he knows what to say. I think he sometimes pushes the envelope, but he’s good in attracting the media to himself. He’s a very tough fighter, and deserves to fight for the title. I have nothing against him, and it’s obvious that you don’t need more than two brain cells to see that he’s joking. I told him that he should become a comedian. There’s a lot of passion in the sport, and there are people that don’t like him. He has his style, he’s more conservative, different than myself. But I think Sonnen is a very intelligent guy.”

While talking to SporTV, UFC middleweight fighter Demian Maia discusses the many antics of Chael Sonnen.

Sonnen has built himself up to be this larger than life character. He openly insults anyone in his path and pulls no punches in his verbal assaults, especially when it comes to Brazilian fighters.

Maia is one of few Brazilians who doesn’t hold this behavior against him and in fact he seems to actually get it.

  4. Michael says:

    Wait, there are people who take Chael Sonnen’s comments seriously? I’m a big fan of him, because he’s funny, and that’s all I took it as.

  5. dankbuds says:

    “hes more conservative, different than myself”?? how the hell is chael conservative

  6. yeah, and hopefully Maia will actually attempt to fight Sonnen, instead of just laying on the mat in guard position hoping Sonnen is dumb enoigh to jump on him (which he prob is)

  7. andyboy says:

    you guys realize SporTV is a brazillian media outlet… whoever translated this probably mixed the conservative comment up, he probably meant HE”s mroe conservative than Chael………look at dat douche who translates for Anderson and all the other Brazillian guys, he messes s*** up all the time. and he even speaks FOR Anderson without anderson knowing hahaha WTF?

  8. follow @BmoDollaz twitter says:

    Maia submitted Sonnen in the very 1st round of their fight with none other than… you guessed it a TRIANGLE. I wouldn’t mind seeing a rematch of them because Maia subbed him with ease.

    I agree with maia. dont feed the troll. why bother? apparently it gets you nowhere. let his fools do the talking and we can sit back and acknowledge and laugh at how big these douches are.

    Let me ask you this, does sonnen and trolls deserve your attention? If you dont like the guy then your answer should be no. If you want to give your attention to him or snort his cock, then please do feed the troll.

    Yes we’ve been trolled hard, but its up to you to not give a shit. stop talking about him and you will have one less headache. stop talking about him and the trolls will go back under their bridges and caves. and let a brazilian put this fool to rest and wrap up his career. nuff said.

    Yea technically, maia owned chael bad when they fought. He threw chael to the ground and landed in a mounted triangle position. Then baited to chael to roll over, which he did, then finished da choke. Maia most dominant performance in the octagon.

  11. Chartmonster says:

    Maia is the only one that’s smart enuf and gets Chael’s infamous game! All in on Chael!
