Chael Sonnen makes light of himself during post-fight show for UFC on FX 2

Chael Sonnen, without cracking a smile, likely gave viewers watching the post-fight show on Fuel TV for this past Friday’s UFC on FX: Alves vs. Kampmann a grin from ear-to-ear after offering an insight on the bout many probably didn’t expect to hear.

In the card’s main event, Martin Kampmann caught Thiago Alves coming in for a takedown with a Guillotine Choke, earning the submission with less than a minute remaining on the clock in a bout where Alves appeared to be up on the scorecards and well on his way to securing a victory.

Sonnen experienced the same fate during his title-fight with UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva with “The Spider” locking him in a choke as their bout winded down with Sonnen unquestionably leading on the scorecards.

“There is nobody else more surprised that (Alves) tapped out than Martin Kampmann,” Sonnen dead-panned. “I think Martin will tell you himself, he didn’t have that choke. You have to be a real boob to get caught at the end of the fight like that.”

Sonnen is expected to get another shot at Silva this summer with the date/location still up in the air though rumored to be in Brazil this June.

    I wonder though, if Sonnen is really self-aware enough to make that comment in jest. I didn’t hear it, and tone of voice is everything.

    This guy is so full of himself, I would not be surprised if He Talks to himself in third person at home in the mirrior,This guy is awsome he never run’s out of shit to say ! Chael Sonnen= THE POLICTIAL CAGE FIGHTER. He has most likely tried to set up appts With senator John Mcain to discuss the current state of M.M.A in the united states, and across the world. gonna hate to see him get his butt kicked though. do you think he will get rid of his fake belt that he show’s up with at press conferences?

    Yeah I heard him say that and after that he said “…and what sort of a cock smoker would take PEDs to get the advantage in a title fight?…or what sort of a filthy rat bastard would turn on his buddies to save his own cheating, filthy, turncoat, criminal ass?”.

    Ah he loves to take the mickey out of himself. I wont though, I’ll just call it like it is, Chael Sonnen is a filthy rat turncoat cheat that thinks the sun shines out of his ass. He disgusts me.

    he also commented after the Daniel Pineda submission. Daniel secured the triangle position from the mount, then let his his opponent roll him to lock in the triangle exactly the same way Maia baited Chael to the same finish. should have got joint sub of the night with Waldeberger, both were way more technically adept than Kampmanns. anyhoo Chael made a comment about it saying he got caught the same and something along the lines of it took him a while to get out of it. when of course he didnt get out of it, he submitted once again
