It was only a matter of time before someone gave Chael Sonnen a microphone and free reign to say whatever he wants again. Earlier today, the UFC gave him just that in a Q&A session before the UFC Fight Night 22 weigh-ins. Not only did he read off a half-written poem he wrote for Anderson Silva, he also took a couple of cracks at UFC champions George St. Pierre and Brock Lesnar.
Which would like you first? The poem? Okay, the poem it is:
“Anderson, who you gonna send?”
Anderson, think it through.
There’s still a few months before they lock the cage door behind me and you.
Last time, they raised your hand, but it was plain to see
I took a lot more about of you than you took out of me.
I broke the mirror, and I blew away the smoke.
It was me who tapped, but it was you who broke.
I have to admit, that was pretty clever. But on to the money quotes… His message to GSP:
“‘GSP’ had better pray to heaven above that ‘Shogun’ accepts my challenge because one of those two is getting beat up,” Sonnen said.
‘If GSP said he wanted to fight me, the first thing I would say is the same thing I say every time I hear GSP talk: ‘Dang it that guy sounds like a French-Canadian Minnie Mouse,'” Sonnen said. “That’s the first thing I’d say. Then I’d say, ‘Hey, GSP, let me ask you a serious question – do you have a designated driver? Do you have someone to get you home safely? Because clearly you are intoxicated.
“‘GSP, do you have a hankering for pain? GSP, did you lose a bet with God? GSP, bring your $3,000 suit, bring your $3 date and get the three-cent tan beaten off your socialist back.’ If you see GSP, give him that message for me.”
If you’re thinking, well Chael only said that because GSP is smaller than him, I assure you he’s not afraid to talk smack about someone twice his size either.
“If Brock Lesnar was here right now, I’d take my boot off and throw it at him, and he’d better polish it up before he brings it back to me,” Sonnen said. “Talking about he’s the baddest guy in the UFC? Brock, quit eating so many raw eggs and doing push-ups because it’s affecting your realm of reality. Are you kidding me? I’d slap you in your face, and you wouldn’t do anything.
“‘I’m Brock Lesnar. I’ve got this $5 haircut and a knife tattooed on my chest.’ I’ll shove it up your face if you get in Chael Sonnen’s way.”
