Chael Sonnen labels Vitor Belfort as “a chicken” and “a liar”

Chael P. Sonnen is back, folks.

After taking a short sabbatical to let UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva gain all the attention for his brash comments, Sonnen has returned to his old ways. Sonnen had remained relatively quiet since Silva left a conference call in the wake of some incredible remarks directed at his upcoming opponent. However, during a recent interview with MMAFighting, Sonnen went back to calling out Brazilians including Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva.

“Vitor Belfort pulls out of more fights than he agrees too; he’s fantastic,” Sonnen said. “He’s such a chicken and he’s such a liar. To say you’re going to fight, to sell tickets, to sign your name, to film the TV show, and then to pull out? Against an invalid? That’s insane.”

Sonnen was referencing TUF Brasil which showcased Belfort and “The Axe Murderer” against one another. A hand injury forced Belfort out and Rich Franklin took his place and gained the victory.

    Wow not only did he insult Vitor but to throw Wanderlie under the bus also is pretty impressive, that is if jackass comments from Sonnen can impress anybody.

    Sonnen’s best joke about Brazil was “You can tell they came up with the toothbrush. If any other country invented it, it would be called a ‘teethbrush’.”

    Why so serious, folks? This shit’s funny.

    You can say what you want about Chael but, He knows where his paychecks come from. He knows that he can make a ton of money talking smack about all the brazillians, Perhaps he might be the best self marketing fighter the U.F.C has ever known. The way I see it Is, Pepole want to see Him get his ass kicked, or see him win. no matter what way He’s still selling P.P.Vs Either way ! Smart man? TBD.
