Urijah Faber "MMA Needs Chael Sonnen"

By Evan Stoumbelis

Urijah Faber spoke recently about Chael Sonnen at a press conference. Faber talked about how he’s known Chael for a long time and how the two met while Faber was wrestling at UC Davis and Sonnen was wrestling at Oregon, Faber even went far enough as to call Sonnen an “outstanding individual”

“I think this sport needs guys like Chael Sonnen,” said Faber. “Sonnen does it [promotes fights] in an interesting way, that you’ll really hate or really love.”

Faber is set to step into the Octagon July 21st against Renan Barao for the interim championship.

    Damn Straight!!!!

  2. Nuitari X says:

    MMA needs Chael Sonnen about as much as my asshole needs hemorrhoids.

  3. stephen riddle says:

    He is entertaining and gives people something to talk about and i cant hate on that although im rooting for silva!

    • Nuitari X says:

      He gives people something to talk about and I guess that would be entertainment however, he’s very disrespectful sometimes and I think the sport doesn’t need disrespectful people regardless of how entertaining they are.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        So you would rather have a sport with a bunch of ass kissers??? Are a fuckin’ liberal, political correctness nazi??

        • mmafansaregay says:

          i understand why you have such hate towards silva. After all, he’s destroyed all your american boyfriends, i.e., rich franklin x 2 in murderous fashion, choked the shit out of dan henderson, made travis lutter and your boyfriend chael sonnen smell his nuts to submission, executed 100% connection rate against white trash chris leben, and toyed and humiliated forrest griffin to the point where he cried running out of the octagon lol! I get it. whenever anderson fights, being you must suck. you liberal obamacare supporting redneck fuck 😀

        • Yo Papi says:

          Are you sure it wasnt you “smelling his nuts” and not Sonnen? Christ. Hop off that dick. I’d have respect if he wouldnt be scared of Jones and just give the fight everyone wants to see.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I see you are a racist, you must be a Brazilian. That;s OK you have to live in a third works country that America DOMINATES and I live in the BEST NATION this world has ever KNOWN, American Ideals, Freedom and Liberty WILL DOMINATE THE WORLD because we are Christian First….HooRah…

        • Nuitari X says:

          Being a respectful person doesn’t mean you have to be an ass kisser. Other than that I’m pretty much gonna ignore everything else you said because its apparent that you are starting to become one of the biggest trolls on this site. You took bla deblah’s place so now you and keep bitch (forever) can go play with each other. Have a nice day. :-)

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Your problem is you are way too vanilla and when someone with a strong opinion comes along and speaks his mind, you act like a spoiled little brat that can’t take it. So you try and dismiss it. That is a symptom of a mentally weak person. You don’t know how to go beyond your weak little girly emotions. Now I know you don’t compete, because you have NO idea how too. Competition of ideas requires cajones, dude and your wilting to my words shows me you need work. I would have more respect if you would challenge my ideas and ignore my rudeness. Don’t you realize that you are focusing on ALL the wrong things??? You can beat rudeness by NOT letting it stop you…But my rudeness has defeated you. Don’t you see that??? So what are you going to do now that I ko’d you? Are you quitting or are you going to get stronger??? It’s up to you, I’ve done my part to help you!!!

        • Nuitari X says:

          Bro, you are about as crazy as my fucking in laws and man that’s saying something. You have a right to your opinion even if it differs from mine strong as it may be. I was talking about being respectful and It takes a STRONG minded person to ignore the rants and raves of annoying mother fuckers like you who think they can actually get a sense of who someone is by a comment that they post on an internet web site. Now you know I don’t compete? Really? You really think you can tell shit like that by a comment? REALLY? What’s my name BITCH? Jackass.

        • Nuitari X says:

          Oh and by the way, while you’re sitting here spouting off shit about being a christian and then turning right around and being judgmental towards people, you should know that goes against the very nature of being a christian as no one but GOD can judge me.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          @ N X..I KNEW I would get you to be rude. See you are a hypocrite. You want your heroes to be better than you don’t you? But you’re a slimeball little whinny crybaby girly emotion kid. You have No Idea what a Christian is and or isn’t. You once gain accuse me of EXACTLY what you do so STFU… you have been exposed you little bitch. Yes kid that’s right you are weak.

      • Irie nation says:

        So Anderson Silva saying what he said earlier this week is cool though???

        • Xaninho says:

          He’s been silent and classy for two years while Sonnen the flatsacked eunuch kept verbally abusing him, his wife, his friends and family and even his entire home country.

          He’s had enough of it now. And I can’t blame him.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          So you would be mad at me if I called you a douchebag, your wife/girlfriend is ugly (I am assuming you like girls and if you don’t please forgive me), all your friends are homosexuals, and Holland is the armpit of the world???? So if I said that would you have just had it with me????

        • Xaninho says:

          Oh I’m fully aware that mentally challenged people think I’m a douchebag, and i’m ok with that….

        • Nuitari X says:

          No, not really Xaninho said it best.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You are a know nothing bitch…apologize for your heroes and condemn your heels. What a piece of shit you are. You just revealed you have NO character and your family must be disappointed in you. A lying little whinny girly bitch. I feel sorry for your wife to be married to such a lowlife girly weasel.

  4. Truth 1 says:

    wtf is this bullshit about what the sport needs and what not ITS A FUCKING FIGHT let them talk shit as much as they want then DUke it out IMHO its the only humanly way.

  5. mmafansaregay says:

    • B-rad says:

      Lol i like your name there… but i think you should change it to ufcfansaregay because real MMA fans are not. I would say its a safe bet a lot of guys who troll and say dumb shit have not ever trained in ANY MMA, or ever watched a single fight outside the ufc But to say “I have no respect for Silva because he hasnt fought Jon Jones” Bones IS a heavyweight, only because of his youth allows him to cut so much weight. but he doesnt have to fight Jon Jones for people to respect him.. because like him or not. even if he gets destroyed next saturday, hes still going down as the most dominate champion ever..and if you dont respect a CHAMPION, your not a mixed martial arts fan, you just like to see two guys “beat the hell outta each other”

      • Contradiction in terms says:

        B-rad trying to sound all-knowing and insightful. Since when does someone have to train in a martial art to know something about martial arts? (and re-read your post and find the contradictions if you can). I dont’ train in football, but I can see who plays well and who doesn’t every Sunday during football season. (and why is it that people who train in combat sports think they’re so much more knowledgable about combat sports than people who don’t? if that was true, the greatest athletes would be the greatest coaches, but that’s definitely false).

        Do you respect a champion? Respect Jones for his fighting skills instead of implying that Jones is a heavyweight and that is why he wins. Jones has never missed weight and almost all fighters cut weight to fight in their division (exceptions? BJ and maybe Edgar, and almost all HWs).

        • Paul Harris says:

          Just wanna see Jones fight guys his size. Frame size that is. Other guys with 80 plus inch reach. When you fight guys who have a 10 in reach disadvantage, that’s just too much. Why doesn’t he fight guys his size?? Would be interesting to see. He’d have to rely on skill and not just his reach and strength.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I fuckin’ CHALLENGE every bullshit word you just wrote. These are words of a loser. The so called advantages of Jones at 05 are nothing but challenges to overcome. And any true warrior would like to fight him as a challenge…You’re a moron.

      • The Dirty Sanchez says:

        B-Rad you know Anderson cuts weight also and his regular walking weight is well over 205. Also don’t put that youth allows him to cut weight, Hendo is old but can cut down to middleweight and he can even go as high as heavy. I’m all for these superfights with champs but its going to be a wait and see deal since we know JDS and JBJ is up to doing one but Silva pretty much doesn’t want to because hes just planning his exit from fighting.

        Before you start calling me a couch potato, I do train in mma, tkd, judo, wrestling, and bjj. I know how to cut weight also I go from my walking weight of 184 to my fighting weight of 155. I’m 32.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        @B-rad…that’s so sweet…..I actually heard violins playing while I read that……The TRUTH is Silva will known to have reigned in the weakest division EVER during his time and that he got beat up twice by the best mma fighter ever and was a scared bitch for NOT stepping up into the 05 division and fighting Jones or hell even Rashad. Yah he will be known as the World’s Greatest Bitch!!!

  6. Clay says:

    I wanna see chael vs GSP

  7. some dude says:

    He is talked about more than any other fighter.

  8. Xaninho says:

    Chael Sonnen is and has always been a can. Next week Silva will kick his sorry ass back to the middle of the ranks where he belongs.

    • GRT 3000 says:

      exactly, he’s a can that got subbed by the GOAT and made a name for himself b/c he managed to dominate a fight while juiced up more than a WWE wreslter with a new thong on his way to Wrestlemania. Quite a story…

    • WrestlingRules says:

      @Xanindo… you are just getting too easy. By your reasoning then since you call Sonnen a can and that can beat the shitouta Silva twice, what does that make Silva??? an Uber Can??? What I do know is that he is going to be known as the The Worlds Greatest Scared Bitch for not going to 05 and fighting Jones or any of the top 5.

      • GRT 3000 says:

        your to easy…why don’t you add up the word count for your comments on this page alone (it’s pushin an essay); take that and divide it by the exact same number and I’m guessing the result will be the number of times you’ve been laid in the last year.

        you need to quit bad mouthing on the internet ‘witto mad buoy’ and go out and get some poon.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Thanks for the concern about my sexual prowess. I do really like reading your responses. You don’t seem to get too rude(btw: I wouldn’t mind either way) or even mad at my shit. I actually laugh out loud!!! Your ok for a lizard brained Silva zombie….

        • GRT 3000 says:

          OK-ok. For a delusional Chael chode lickin dick-wad, I suppose you’re not so bad either.

          …I’ve seen worse; @Fart! where you at Easter Island head. lol

      • Xaninho says:

        Does your can Sonnen have a belt? Does he? No he doesn’t! And do you remember why or are you in denial like all Sonnen’s fanboys? I’ll tell you why…because he TAPPED like a BITCH.

        Your can juiced up to insane levels, spent 5 rounds on top of an injured fighter, threw 300 ‘strikes’ (babyslaps is more like it) and STILL was TOO WEAK to finish the job.

        Sonnen is weak, same as his fake fighting wrestling style.

  9. King Prodigy Levreau says:

    I don’t knock anyone’s hustle…the differences of people are what makes this world so great! We all have flaws and if his friends looks past all of those and see who he really is and they believe him to be a “outstanding individual”, who am I to say otherwise not knowing who he really is. I think he is funny and entertaining. WAR BJ WAR!!!

  10. jones says:

    the sport needs guys like bj penn randy couture anderson silva gsp …guys who work hard naturally and show what martial arts is about, respect ,control,an taking care your body….its not about talking shit to make a scene..and taking so many steroids all your life that you trt forever…i believe cheal needs trt cuz he was abusing the same steriod (testosterone e) that they give you for trt long befor his body needed it….not to mention the guy is a sore lloser..he gets tapped in the 5th still claims he is champ and also claims he did not know the rules he thought tapping just eneded the round with a L..mean while the idiot lost 8 other fights to the exact choke and tapped and the fight ended so his excuses are just stupid crys for attention….hhe repeats everything the exact same in every interveiw,,the guy is 100 percent a wwe actor..wwe need cheal not mma

  11. jones says:

    and cheal is also a criminal laundering money doing real estate fraud and saying in interveiw that he is going burn blackhouse down and do something to anderson wife….hmm that not the kind of fighter i want my kid looking up to

  12. JP says:

    Im just not going to argue anymore on these sites lol its pointless
    I want sonnen to win and if he does it will be by UD if he does manage to finish i will take tko or maybe an arm triangle(although i wont hold my breath) Chael is a grinder that what he does and if silva wins it will be by sub i dont see chael getting KOed by silva he has a good chin and i pray to god that he is smart enough to not stand with him just jab overhand and go for a double leg….
