Chael Sonnen ladies and gentleman.
The most interesting man on the planet has been talking yet again, this time to Jim Rome discussing disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong. Appearing on the show to promote the season premiere of The Ultimate Fighter 17 on FX, Sonnen began proceedings by “accepting an apology” from Rome who ridiculed Sonnen’s comments on Armstrong two years when Sonnen called Armstrong out for being a cheat.
On Armstrong being called a bully Chael had reservations:
“Why are they calling him a bully? That’s what I can’t wrap my brain around. Lance is a dweeb, the only thing he’s missing is the tape on the glasses and the high water pants.”
On the aftermath of his comments about Armstrong giving himself cancer that Sonnen made two years ago, Sonnen made the revelation about Armstrong allegedly wanting to sue him.
“I felt it, after coming on your show. He threatened to sue me and I threatened to kick his ass. And the whole thing went away.”
Sonnen also had some choice remarks for Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and his opposing coach and next opponent, Jon Jones.
Here’s the original piece with the audio of the show.
Season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter debuts tomorrow night on FX.
