Brazilian Fan Tries To Attack Chael Sonnen


We can recall the trash talking that Chael displayed during the lead up to his bouts against Anderson Silva at UFC 117 and UFC 148. Openly disrespecting Anderson Silva’s family and his country of Brazil. It looks like certain fans have not gotten over the persona that is Chael P. Sonnen.

Dana White recently discussed that at TUF 17 finale, there was an off-camera incident that took place with Sonnen and a disgruntled fan.

“[Chael’s trash talk] exploded with the Anderson Silva fight, when he started ripping him and Brazil. Last weekend, I don’t know if any of you guys saw or heard about this, but he was there, shaking hands with everybody and everything. and this guy says, ‘Hey Chael! Chael! C’mon over here.’ Chael goes over there and the guy starts swinging on him, tried to punch him. [Security] bundles the guy up and dragged him out and he’s saying ‘F**k you! You are a piece of s**t! I’m from Brazil’ and this other stuff. The guy attacked him at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale last Saturday. It was a bad move [for that guy] — they didn’t take him out of there politely. He got bundled and dragged over every stair on the way out.”

    I think everyone should have just backed off and made a big circle, and let that guy keep swinging on Chael! … Then let Chael do what he does best without a referee to hold him back.

      Amen to that lol, what a dumb idea to attack any professional fighter, let alone Sonnen who can outwrestle most UFC fighters, lord knows what he’d do to a fan.

        Wrestling a lone will give you such an advantage in street fighting I would think.

        But some people get filled with adrenaline or hatred, and make very very stupid mistakes haha

  • Funny as hell, chael should go to Brazil and give one of his Nazi hate speeches. Bet he’d die

    • Evan Stoumbelis

      Dana had to have security when Chael went to Brazil for a press conference.

      • I bet, he’s got one hell of a disrespectful yapper
