Chael Sonnen loses interest in "stupid" questions, walks off interview setPosted on November 16, 2011, 07:28 PM by Trent Reinsmith
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the self-proclaimed “gangster from America,” Chael Sonnen. In case you missed the presence of the man with “the largest arm in West Linn,” he recently made a television appearance on TSN’s “OTR,” and, well, it had its moments.
Things start off pretty rocky when interviewer Michael Lansberg accused Sonnen of backing down from the loser leave town offer he extended to Anderson Silva following UFC 136. Sonnen responded to the comment by saying, “You might want to take the bass out of your tone, I’m not sure you know who you’re talking to here, but I’ve never backed down from anything, so check your facts.”
Sonnen then went on to offer his take on what happened with the challenge to Silva, “I made him an offer, apparently it didn't work, he didn't accept it. It's not that I backed down, but apparently I need to present him with a new offer. You guys probably don't do that in socialism, but in America, in a capitalistic society, that's how things work." - for the full interview visit TSN.ca.
Things never really got back on track as Sonnen referred to the line of questioning as “gotcha” and “stupid.” By the ten-minute mark of the interview it seemed Sonnen had had enough and he walked off the set.
