UFC 147's Chael Sonnen exposes MMA liars, says he doesn't fib to media (Video)

For better or worse, another edition of "Chael's Corner" aired this evening (April 3, 2012) on the latest episode of "UFC Tonight" on FUEL TV.

And the misleading former -- and current -- number one Middleweight contender, Chael Sonnen, dished on a familiar subject, which is the art of verbal misdirection.

Examples?

When mixed martial artist (MMA) fighters say, "I don't want to leave it in the hands of the judges," what they really mean is, "I didn't train to go three rounds." Or, when they say, "I need to go to training camp to be in seclusion," what they really mean is, "My wife and kids are driving me nuts."

He's got a good point. Two, actually.

But, one has to wonder what an intelligent fighter is really thinking when he declares that the most prolific champion ever in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Anderson Silva, should be "fired" and who he can "drag out of a hotel" at anytime and beat him up (even though he already lost a real fight inside the Octagon). What's the true message behind a so-called "plain-talking" straight-shooter who has dished so many outlandish statements over the years, dragging his Brazilian rival -- and his proud nation -- through the mud for the sake of promotion, that he felt compelled to offer a real fake apology on television.

What does it all mean? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

Perhaps we'll know for sure at the conclusion of the UFC 147 main event this summer, but don't hold your breath.
