Chael Sonnen, my personal Jesus and the man who used pro-wrestling promos to get rich, talked to Bleacher Report about his issues with LeBron James and he did not disappoint.
Let me tell you a story about LeBron. He asked the UFC for tickets for my fight against Anderson Silva. We sit the guy front row, and all through the night he snubs our fans. He’s a guest in our house and he refuses to sign any autographs or take any pictures unless your cup size was later in the alphabet than he was able to learn.
And from what I understand, he thinks the letter purple comes after C. This guy walked up to my fiancee backstage and asks her if there’s a Tic Tac in her blouse or if she was just happy to see him.
I had a UFC employee tell me he saw a mother wheel her handicapped child up to him to get a picture. Lebron was walking towards them. When he reached the kid, the mother stopped the wheelchair. Lebron took the wheelchair, wheeled it out of the way and kept walking.
I’d like to slap the divots right off his face.
When asked what would happen if the two met in the Octagon Chael responded, “He’d run away faster than his hairline. His hair went North, his talents went South, and his mother went West.”
I would highly recommend checking out the interview as he talks about Jim Rome, a fight with Lebron and his view on sporting leagues in America calling their titles “World Titles”. It’s a great little read that will either make you laugh and love him more or get mad and hate him more.
