In a rare moment of clarity, former UFC star Chael Sonnen appeared on Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” yesterday and admitted that both he and Tito Ortiz suck.
If you’ll recall, Sonnen and Ortiz fought recently in the Bellator cage, with Ortiz choking the former middleweight contender out. That didn’t sit well with Sonnen, and, well, here’s his quote, courtesy of MMAFighting:
“Tito sucks,” Sonnen said. “I mean, Tito is so bad. And when you lose to a guy, then you suck. That’s the way it works, man. I wouldn’t put that guy without putting myself down. Tito is the worst fighter I ever fought and that makes me the worst fighter. And I just didn’t know that about myself.”
“When we got into the back and he was still a jerk about it, that confused me,” Sonnen said. “It’s like, Tito, you’re terrible. I’m the name that’s gonna move this company forward. You’ve gotta pass the torch.”
