UFC Quick Quote: Chael Sonnen will not apologize for drug test fiasco because he's not sorry

Jared Wickerham

"People were saying, 'why won't he say he's sorry?' I'm not. I'm not going to apologize because I'm not sorry. I'm a consenting adult. I knew exactly what I was doing. This was a premeditated decision. Here's the problem, is that it worked. The problem is, it helps. There's a term out there, performance enhancing drug. The reality is, it's all medicine. All medicine is made to make you better. If it did the opposite, it would be malpractice. You're not going to the doctor to say give me something to make me worse. I was taking things and they were making me feel a little better."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender and ousted UFC on FOX analyst Chael Sonnen will not apologize for upsetting the mixed martial arts (MMA) apple cart ahead of his UFC 175 showdown against fellow ZUFFA jetsam Wanderlei Silva (but was forgiven anyway). Why? Because the "Bad Guy" is not sorry for ingesting a witches' brew of prescription feel-goods, as he explained on the debut of his official podcast "You're Welcome" (via MMA Fighting). With plenty of outside endeavors to keep him busy, including submission tournamentsMMA play-by-play, and now his podcast, it sounds like the retired "Gangster" will have plenty to keep himself busy.
