Chael Sonnen recently discussed getting attacked by a bear aka “Jon Jones” and how Jones height was a shocker for him come fight night.
“This was like getting into a bear cage. This guy was a monster of a man. We weighed in at the same size the day before, and I don’t know how that was possible. I put my arms around him and I thought, ‘oh my god, you’re a big guy.’ As far as the match went, I got beat up.”
He also discussed how he felt if he won the belt due to the broken toe of Jon Jones.
“Diplomatically you don’t ever want to win that way. The ones that hurt are the ones you’re supposed to win and then you blow it. But if it was given to me, I would have grabbed that belt, I would have held it up, grabbed the mic and told the crowd the golden rule is ‘he with the gold rules,’ and I would have walked out of the place and never looked back.”
During the UFC Primetime special for his second bout with Anderson Silva, Chael say’s that he would give anything to be world champion for one day. It looks like he meant it.
