Last year, Chael Sonnen made the unpredictable leap of talking about being a conservative republican and his abhorrence of pink sweaters to appearing on Fox News to promote his political agenda (and hidden hatred of pink sweaters). Chael Sonnen is exactly what you think he is, the number two ranked middleweight in the world — of course, he would beg to differ.
This Chael Sonnen and his unfiltered stream of consciousness. If only there was some quantifiable way to measure the veracity of smack-talk emerging from this guy’s mouth. The energy could power a household of five, a fleet of Cheverolet Impalas and the MiddleEasy.com server for an entire year. You can never call Chael Sonnen a liar, even when a person that sounds like him calls into a radio show and does an interview claiming Lance Armstrong gave himself cancer. It’s not called lying when NCAA Division I All-American wrestlers from West Linn, Oregon are involved. More along the lines of ‘cleverly elaborated stories’ that may conflict with a previous story.
Check out this interview Chael did in Brazil and pay attention to the amount of spin he exerts throughout the clip. You could get whiplash from it. [Source]
