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.
