Chael Sonnen Says He Will Leave Shogun “Face Down and End His Career”

During a recent episode of UFC Tonight, the always outspoken Chael Sonnen had a surprisingly venomous message for his upcoming opponent, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, and his teammate Wanderlei Silva.

“On August 17, a fight’s going to take place and everyone’s screen saver will be Wanderlei’s face,” Sonnen warned. “Not scowling or pouting or pounding his fist, or stumbling with English or rolling his wrist, but watching in horror as docs try to wake his little henchman Shogun who made the mistake of cutting in line on my way to his boss, and ended up knocked out and trying to explain the loss.”

Yikes. Sonnen is often a fan of hyperbole, but this particular instance makes it sound like he’s gunning for Shogun’s team on a personal level.

“[He will be] sitting at the press conference table with Wanderlei outside, hailing a cab for the panic-filled ride to Logan Airport, or better still to the docks, to stow away, on a boat to Brazil to get away from this gangster right here, who will eventually leave him face down and end his career,” Sonnen concluded.

The Axe Murderer has never been one to back down from a challenge, and after a taunt like that, I’m sure Chael Sonnen is officially on his radar. That’s if Sonnen manages to get past Shogun this weekend that is.

Rua and Sonnen will meet in the UFC Fight Night 26 main event on Saturday in Boston.
