Chael Sonnen was responsible for one of the most famous trash talking campaigns in MMA history leading up to his fight against Anderson Silva. As he floated in limbo due to drug offences and criminal fraud proceedings relating to his real estate business that led to a conviction, he kept on talking to keep himself relevant. His comments, most notably against Anderson, Wanderlei Silva, Antonio Silva, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, and the nation of Brazil.
Now that Sonnen is finally confirmed to be coming back (he’ll face Brian Stann in October), he’s not likely to leave troll status. And yes, troll status is exactly what it is. Remember when he said he didn’t have Twitter, then went back and forth? If you believe him at face value, he’s successfully trolled you.
Here’s an interesting video from 2010, before the Anderson vs Demian Maia fight:
Really, Chael? Really?
