It's hard to believe that these two men actually had a conversation, but it's true. The UFC's biggest character, Chael Sonnen, joined up with one of the biggest characters in pro wrestling history, The Iron Sheik, to do a good deed - try to save Olympic wrestling.
The two men were guests on Off The Record with Michael Landsberg, a show that airs on TSN in Canada. After talking about the Olympics for a bit (the Sheik, real name Hossein Kohsrow Vaziri, was an assistant coach of the US Olympic wrestling team at the 1972 Olympics and a decorated amateur wrestler - though I'm sure Riordan will join us to debate that), Sonnen asked The Sheik for his side of a humorous old story that has been floating around.
Basically, back in his pro wrestling days with the WWF, Sheik was dragged into a room and told that the drug test he took had come back positive. Sonnen wanted to know if it was true that he was happy about that, and Sheik confirmed that his English wasn't so great at the time and he thought positive meant good, so he was happy. Until they told him it was a bad thing, of course.
Sonnen then turned the tables when he was asked about his positive test for elevated testosterone after his first fight with Anderson Silva, and he cut a pro wrestling promo about it which was not half bad. They closed it out with my "Save Wrestling" talk. Check out the video above for some humor, if you're into that sort of thing.
