Short Pants and a Mouthpiece: The Chael Sonnen UFC on Fox 2 Open Workout Story

Chael Sonnen is positively, undeniably every bit of character that you think he is, but at the same time in person he makes eye contact, shakes your hand with a gentle sincerity you wouldn’t expect out of a gangster from West Linn, Oregon and responds with sir and ma’am. In another universe Chael has a ring in his nose and he’s led like a bull into political gatherings where he imposes his will onto those weaker than him, just like so many of his opponents inside a fighting cage. But in this timeline and outside of his fighting area of choice, he handles himself like shark in a nondescript suit…if that suit were a rashguard and short pants. There is something behind those eyes of Chael Sonnen that is working on a different level and we are lucky to witness it. Whatever it is.

Today I attended the UFC on Fox 2 open workouts. I was so inspired by Chael and his level 99 speech skill that I made this video out of his massive media scrum. This is Chael Sonnen’s UFC on Fox 2 State of the Union and the story of his open workout.
