    I was just about to post this, I couldn't stop laughing, the comments about the Noguiera brothers and the bus was brilliant.

    They have computers in Brazil??


    The "he's an immigrant from Brazil, I'm a gangster for America" comment was hilarious! His description of what he would do at Wandi's house nearly had me on the floor.

    Shame he's fighting Stann next. I doubt even Sonnen will dare trash talk the 'real American hero', which will be a loss of some entertainment value.

    I Believe in Chael Sonnen.

    "He's delusional, he thinks he really won those fights in Japan?"

    He reminds me of a cross between a pro wrestler and Ari Gold from Entourage. I would pay to watch a Q and A by Sonnen.

    The thing is though, he does make some great points. Wandi's record in the UFC for example. It's fucking awful. And he rightly predicted Leben would beat him too.

    In contrast, in his latest interview Sonnen comes across as startlingly mellow

    Chael is magic, look how he balances the cup on his knee when he is talking about GSP at around 17:20.

    Considering the distance they are sitting apart, Chael loves to shout everything. He's like the modern day Dom Jolly. "HELLO??? IM IN THE LIBRARY.... NAH, IT'S RUBBISH!!"

    Crocop on Sonnen:



    "i never wanted to reply to such insults(provocations), there is an old saying; 'dont discuss things with a idiot; others wont see the difference.'
    I asked some people in America "who is this guy?". They said he is mad and longing for promotion. I am not mad at him, but you can see on his face that he is limited*, its obvious that he is crazy, but ill repeat i am not angry at him. He is the only one that understands what he is saying."

    *in croatian this is a bad insult, its like retarded

    "I'm not angry at Chael Sonnen. It would be like getting mad at my 8 month old son who other day went with his walking chair to our house flower, took the dirt with his hand and throw it on the floor. but how can i get mad at him? he is only a baby and does not know what he is doing. situation with sonnen is similar. he has not idea what he is doing/saying

    "Chael Sonnen has a phd in idiocy".

    Sonnen's response:

    Mirko, ol' buddy! Strong words from someone who's been carried out more often than Chinese food!

    There's more chance of Michael Bisping actually knocking someone out than of Sonnen having his ass handed to him.
