When last we saw Chael Sonnen, he was falling victim to a Hail Mary triangle armbar by Anderson Silva at UFC 117.
He’ll finally return to the ring Saturday, fighting Brian Stann after a year that’s included a licensing battle and a guilty plea to money laundering.
And it’s great that he’s back. Though he’s been relatively quiet in the leadup to this one — @sonnench has seen just one tweet since Sept. 23, and that was party hype — few fighters are more entertaining than the middleweight contender/Republican/one-time realtor.
Here’s some of Sonnen’s greatest hits, starting with a capital-B Burn on Travis Browne.
Alistair Overeem, MMA fighter? Chael Sonnen doesn’t think so.
Thiago Alves frankly doesn’t seem too pleased to be sharing this mic.
Seems to find him funny, though.
Sonnen lost that fight after dominating for 4 1/2 rounds. And yes, “he was out,” even though it was a “one-sided pounding.” Also leg kicks are worthless.
