Chael Sonnen sound bytes are often gems and – sometimes – he makes good sense. Scary. In one of his latest videos he talks about how flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo have been demoted. The pair square off in August at UFC 227 in a championship bout. They serve as the co-main event for the bantamweight rematch between champ TJ Dillashaw and former champ Cody Garbrandt.

Brendan Schaub’s podcast ‘Below the Belt’ featured one of our faves, your guy, your ace – Chael. P. Sonnen.

He opened up about the WWE offer he received due to the buzz around him from the Anderson Silva feud. Check it out.

The American Gangsta Chael P. Sonnen says Hector Lombard did not break any rules against CB Dollaway. Hector hit CB twice after the buzzer but it was close enough where a small minority wants to give him a pass.

Dollaway won via DQ and Lombard faces a possible disciplinary action because of it. Listen to Chael give the history of the “protect yourselves at all times” rule and defend Lombard.
