Just when you thought there wasn't any other type of promo that Chael Sonnen could deliver to his rival Anderson Silva, the No. 1 middleweight contender outdid himself prior to the UFC 145 weigh-ins last Friday.
Sonnen threw out his usual barbs toward the UFC Middleweight Champion and then broke into song. Without missing a beat, the man influenced by pro wrestling promos did his best Honky Tonk Man impression to the crowd's delight.
One particular highlight from the video below:
"So get in the gym and work on your sprawl/I just talked to Uncle Dana and it's winner take all/I'm going to leave you with some string and a whole bunch of welts/You're going to need it Anderson because I'm taking your belt."
Read more great Sonnen quotes from the session after the jump.
- "I love easy fights. That's why I've been pining for Anderson and then Vitor. I want to feather my nest with bums."
- "I'm not a martial artist. I'm a gangster from the streets of West Linn, Oregon."
- "When I was young, they called me the foreman...not because I was in charge, but I did the work of four men."
At 10 AM EST, fans will find out whether Silva vs. Sonnen II will take place in Brazil in June, in Las Vegas in July or a potential surprise location later on this summer. Tim Burke will bring you all the latest here on BE when the press conference starts.
