Chael Sonnen Recites Poem for Shogun Rua and Wanderlei Silva


Chael Sonnen was absent from his normal role of UFC Tonight co-host on Tuesday, due to his upcoming fight against former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. In his place, seated next to Kenny Florian, was Daniel Cormier.

Sonnen may not have been on set for the show, but he still paid a visit via the magic of Skype. Sonnen, after a very brief introduction where he complimented Florian and Cormier on their suits, telling them they looked like "Mayhem" Miller’s defense team, broke into a poem:

On August 17 a fight’s going to take place

And everybody’s screen saver will be Wanderlei’s face

Not scowling or pouting or pounding his fists

Or stumbling with English or rolling his wrists

But watching in horror as docs try and wake

His little henchmen Shogun who made the mistake

Of cutting in line on my way to his boss

And ended up knocked out and trying to explain the loss

Sitting at the press conference with Wanderlie outside

Hailing a cab for a panic filled ride

To Logan Airport or better still

To the docks to stowaway on a boat to Brazil

To get away from this gangster right here

Who eventually leave him face down and end his career

Clearly Sonnen is angling for a fight with Wanderlei Silva following Saturday’s bout against Rua.

Is that the fight to make or should Sonnen pack up this whole fighting thing and think about going on a spoken word tour?

Sonnen faces Rua on Saturday in the main event of UFC Fight Night 26, which will take place at Boston’s TD Garden. The fight will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1.
