Brendan Schaub has given an update on the situation involving former UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen, who was recently detained by police after a brawl at a hotel in Las Vegas.
Sonnen reportedly beat up a man and was charged with five battery citations.
Reactions were coming from every direction in the MMA world. Brendan Schaub has given one of the more direct responses. He claims to have spoken with Sonnen, who provided him with additional information on the situation.
According to Schaub, the incident had nothing to do with domestic violence as some had claimed.
“So I think by Chael doing this, it just adds to the legend of Chael Sonnen. He was protecting his girl. And for that dumbass who got absolutely annihilated by the great Chael Sonnen, you deserved it man. And that’s what you get. So you play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
“This is not a case of Chael hitting his wife like Jon [Jones] did. I think they dropped the charges. This is not a case of Chael Sonnen being high and wrecking his Bentley with strippers in the car. This is not the case of Chael domestic violence in any facet. And I think everyone should hold their judgement to get more details.”

Schaub also gave more details on what happened, which he claims is Chael Sonnen’s own version. According to Schaub, Sonnen was with his wife at a Las Vegas hotel when a man started making lewd comments toward her. He also believes that the man deserves what came to him when messing with a legendary fighter.
“Here’s what happened is Chael was obviously working and he was with his wife and his wife is a f*cking saint and also a dime piece. And some drunk guy with his girl kept making comments about his wife, saying about her t**s, her a**, right in front of him. Well, play stupid games, win stupid prizes, cause you are talking and disrespecting one of the toughest guys on the planet and definitely one of the toughest ever to compete in the UFC or Bellator for that matter. And you’re doing it in front of his face, then there’s gonna be repercussions. And any guy that wanted to do that for their girl/ladies you got a girlfriend.”
