Well, Chael, why didn’t you do it then? Or maybe it’s just that hotels are Anderson Silva’s kryptonite and the only way he can lose is if he’s beaten up inside of one. Either way, Sonnen tasted defeat against “The Spider” at UFC 117 and got destroyed in their rematch at UFC 148. Bottom line, don’t say it if you can’t back it up! Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE This quote was referencing steroid use in MMA. Has good old Uncle Chael forgotten that he too is a “fraud”? Testing positive for elevated testosterone after his fifth-round submission loss to Silva at UFC 117, Sonnen faced a one year suspension by the CSAC and a $2,500 fine. Sonnen then stated, “It’s really not fair.” Can you say hypocrite? Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE Usually that’s the kind of statement you’d hear coming from a champion like Jon Jones, Anderson Silva, or Georges St. Pierre – not Chael Sonnen, who’s been nothing more than a contender his whole life.

He might just get the beating he’s been wishing for. Mandatory Credit: Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports It has been proven by science that head impact may lead to brain damage. Coming off two consecutive technical knockout losses to Silva and Jones, it’s about time for Uncle Chael to consult a doctor. After all, he’s been making some pretty bold statements lately, none of which have been backed up. Maybe Sonnen should hang up the gloves and pursue a new career as a ring girl. Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE Wrong, Jones is the undisputed light-heavyweight champion and the UFC’s pound-for-pound king. Jones also holds five title defenses, including a very impressive first-round technical knockout of – you guessed it – Chael Sonnen. Sonnen on the other hand is coming off two back-to-back losses. Ladies and gentlemen, the statistics speak for themselves. Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE
Before reading this slideshow about the ideology of Chael Sonnen, let us not forget that the 28-13-1 perennial title contender is one of the best in the game. With elite wrestling and impressive standup, Sonnen has defeated top-level competition such as Michael Bisping, Brian Stann and Yushin Okami. However, the professional trash talker may be more famous for life outside the cage. Here are some of Uncle Chael’s best quotes and antics.
