I can’t even begin to place a number on the amount of jokes that will arise from Chael Sonnen’s revelation that he had several inches of his colon removed just before UFC 167. It’s a TSN exclusive, and we all have Michael Landsberg to thank or it. Here’s an excerpt from the article.
UFC fighter Chael Sonnen had several inches of his colon removed during emergency surgery on Nov. 15 – one day before his first-round loss to Rashad Evans at UFC 167.
Sonnen confirmed that he had the procedure during a taping of TSN’s Off The Record on Wednesday, after host Michael Landsberg revealed that a source told him about it.
“When I sign a contract to fight, I’m agreeing to fight a guy on a certain day at a certain time and in a certain venue,” he continued. “It’s my job to feel good when I go out and do it and if I don’t that may play a hand in the fight.”
We’ll have to wait until later today to see the actual interview, that is if you live in Canada. For the rest of the world we’ll have to wait until a pirated version hits the internet.
