Quoteworthy:

"I never did an interview with Larry Pepe. I've never spoke of Lance Armstrong -- ever."

UFC middleweight number one contender Chael Sonnen feels the heat for steamrolling cycling champ Lance Armstrong during his Aug. 2 interview with Larry Pepe on Pro MMA Radio right here on MMAmania.com.  The mouthy ex-politician refuses to break political kayfabe and even tells Ariel Helwani that he's never spoken to bodybuilding's brawny bulletin broadcaster despite five separate interviews across the span of two years. So has Sonnen been too busy with media interviews to keep track of who he's spoken to and what he's said? Or is he simply failing to take responsibility for his trash-talking now that he's being called on it? Listen to the Armstrong comments here. Live by the sword ...

Update: Jim Rome drops the hammer on Sonnen with the Pro MMA Radio audio which Sonnen calls "A guy with a Hispanic accent." Listen to it here.
