Upon being alerted to this by a faithful fan at today's (April 20, 2012) special Q&A session before the UFC 145: "Jones vs. Evans" weigh-ins, Sonnen responded about like you'd think:
"I am shocked. Really? That blows me away. What's next, you're going to tell me a UFC ring card girl got naked for a few bucks? You are blowing my mind. The hell you say, young lady. I don't believe it. That's like telling me that Overeem was positive. I mean, convincing me of that is like convincing me that Roy Nelson is clean, I'm just not going to believe it. I'm just going to have to see it with my own eyes. I'm just not hearing you, young lady."
Take shot at ring card girls? Check. Defend Alistair Overeem against steroid allegations? Check. Knock Roy Nelson for his lack of hygiene? Man, this guy was on fire, huh?
Really, it seems a little too much like Sonnen let Silva off easy, especially considering the material he was given to work with. And surely he had enough time to craft a clever response to such information.
Oh well. We still have a couple months left of the mouthy middleweight spewing hot garbage at his arch nemesis before the two finally tussle at UFC 147 on June 23, 2012, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Or maybe it's at UFC 148 on July 7, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Reports have varied over the past week and nothing is set in stone just yet.
Except for the fact that they'll fight and Sonnen will have a few more zingers to throw Silva's way. Hopefully better than this attempt. For video of the complete Chael Sonnen special Q&A session click here.
