Chael Sonnen walks around with a replica UFC belt, says Anderson Silva is a fraudPosted on January 25, 2012, 06:03 PM by Trent Reinsmith
In just a few days Chael Sonnen will face Michael Bisping in the co-main event of Saturday’s UFC on FOX 2 fight card. As with most UFC cards, the days before the event are full of media responsibilities, today Sonnen appeared on Dan Le Batard’s show, “Dan Le Batard is…Highly Questionable.”
When Sonnen appeared on camera one thing became immediately clear, he had taken his claim that he is the UFC Middleweight Champion to another level, as he had a UFC belt hanging over his shoulder. Early in the interview Sonnen states that only one fighter can be champion, to which, Le Batard says, “Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t (Anderson) Silva the champ?” To which Sonnen replies “Yeah, I will correct you, you are wrong.” From there the two have an exchange about the belt.
From there we are treated to some classic Sonnen, as he takes a shot at Mike Tyson while speaking about Silva. Sonnen then explains the “misunderstanding” of why he tapped to Silva.
Other topics range from Sonnen’s time growing up on the “mean streets of West Linn, Oregon” to how much of a romantic he is.
