Chael Sonnen says Ronda Rousey is "another opponent Rampage can't beat"Posted on November 12, 2012, 06:33 PM by Anton Gurevich
Two-time UFC Middleweight title challenger, Chael Sonnen, once again proved he's a true professional when it comes to trash talk.
Sonnen welcomed Ronda Rousey to the Ultimate Fighting Championship, claiming that Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight champion is a pioneer of the sport, and one of the many opponents Quinton Jackson can't beat.
"I'd like to congratulate Ronda Rousey on becoming a pioneer in this sport. It's well deserved and overdue. Looks like Mitt Romney has a new favorite fighter and Rampage Jackson has another opponent he can't beat."
It's not the first, and perhaps not the last time Chael Sonnen and Rampage Jackson trade insults. Jackson and Sonnen have a long history of mutual hatred, however, it seems as this fight is quite far from happening. Chael Sonnen is fighting Jon Jones for the UFC Light Heavyweight title next April, while Jackson is on his way out from the Ultimate Fighting Championship, having his farewell fight against Glover Teixeira at UFC on FOX 6.
As for Ronda Rousey, the champ and her manager have decided to cool down the rumors. UFC are known for handling major announcements via announcements by Dana White, press conferences, media calls, or any other type of organized PR routine. Especially when Rousey's official signature with the promotion would be the last nail in Strikeforce's coffin.
