Chael Sonnen on LeBron James: His Hair Went North, Talents Went South and Mother Went West

It was just last week that mixed martial arts star Chael P. Sonnen ripped Miami Heat superstar LeBron James on The Jim Rome Show. Sonnen made it very clear that he was no fan of LeBron and even decided to call him a “dork”, but that was nothing compared to how Sonnen laid in to King James when he spoke with our friends at Bleacher Report.

Sonnen’s shots at LeBron seemed to come out of nowhere, but he detailed LeBron’s attitude during a UFC event to B/R’s Jeremy Botter that led to his dislike for the NBA star. Of course, this is Chael Sonnen, so remember that the details will be embelished.

He said:

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.

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.

Next time I see him he will shake that little boy’s hand, even if I have to break his arm off and take it to the boy.

Now we have a bit of a better understanding of why Sonnen is no fan of LeBron, but he didn’t stop taking shots throughout the interview. Subjects like his hairline, his mother, the heart of NBA players and the NSA were all in bounds for Sonnen’s interview. Quite frankly, we are happy.

Here are a few of the greatest quotes from the interview:

  • His hair went North, his talents went South, and his mother went West.
  • I’ve seen more heart in the kids playing on the cul-de-sac than in the NBA. So where does that leave us?
  • There’s a few great websites I frequent, but we’ll leave that between me and the NSA.

You have to check out Botter’s entire interview with LeBron over at Bleacher Report. In typical Chael P. fashion, you will be entertained.

    No matter how much he disses Lebron, he will never have his fame, his money, etc. I don’t think this guys has any class at all, disrepecting another man like that…and does Lebron care? At the end of the day, he goes back to his millions, his mansion, his endorsements…

      but he’s still just an ahole in a big house.

      • NickPP2013

        That’s your opinion. Many athletes have been assholes in the past/present, like Ty Cobb, Pete Rose, Lance Armstrong, Albert Belle, etc…we don’t like their personality, but we like their skills…Sometimes…people are just unhappy and jealous…

        • Darren Shafferman

          do see all those names were cheaters lebron fans are dumbasses and doesnt matter if u have money

        • Darren Shafferman

          no just tired of hearing people claim him as a king when he had to go somewhere else to play like jordan and all them said they didnt have to or want to go to another team with a superstar thats what made the nba back then great and sometimes people like nick are stupid who worship assholes maybe cuz u dont have nuthun better to do then defend a jackass u never met

          • NickPP2013

            Darren…you are just a frustrated person who envies athletes who make lots of money while you have to work for yours. You feel good inside bringing them down and saying how bad people they are like if that is going to make a difference or you have some kind of say on whether they are good or not…Not!…bottom line…they will still be rich and you will still have to work. Your comments don’t make a dent in their lives…their direct deposit is steady…if you want to bad mouth them so you can feel good inside…do it and be happy…your comments about me are just as worthless as your comments about athletes…

          • Darren Shafferman

            lol u are so dumb its called he push a kid in a wheelchair out of his way money has nuthun to do with it hell i bought his jersey of his high school in akron and rooted for him then he just had to leave for the heat with two other superstars my fav player is jordan and made him lots of money off of me and do i hate him so nice try i like players who are good hearted and have heart like the rock ill pay to see his movies and who gives a shit what u or he thinks he wont read the comments anyway i know that he wont even talk to a kid in a wheel chair lol u must be that type of guy as well to defend him i make good money i work for fed ex lmao 600 a week sounds good to me lol dumbass

          • NickPP2013

            So you are sour about him leaving Cleveland, ha,ha…get over it man, don’t be such a crybaby…live your life and let go….well, I didn’t like that decision either but that’s in the past. I like Kobe better than him but my post was in reaction to that fighter who talked crap about him…I feel that he should go to his face and challenge him and not talk crap all over the media to get attention…of course a professional fighter can beat him up but he can kick his ass in basketball too…You are not making a lot of money man..come on…anyway, get a life, get a woman or something….

          • Darren Shafferman

            i got money a life and a woman wow shows how much u know at least the comments i make are true id still be a lebron fan if he wasnt a crybaby and play with heart and stay with his hometown team even when times were tough and he couldnt get them over the hump so how am i jealous my fav player won more rings and mvps and was a GREAT PERSON most important of all. money dont make u a great person remember that

          • NickPP2013

            Who cares? You bore me with the same crap,over and over…get a life, go and talk to someone else…you seem obssessed with him…go bother someone else…

          • NickPP2013

            You are just a Lebron jealous little man…get over it. You are too sensitivie about Lebron James, get another man to be jealous about. He won a championship and gets millions…he left Cleveland and there is no going back…get over it!

    • Darren Shafferman

      and jealous u forget he came to watch the ufc not him coming to the nba to watch lebron and at least he met and saw james as he truly is u could compare him to kanye west how about tim duncan why isnt he king he has more champipnships lol and kobe has more heart thats why kobe is a better player in the beginning of his career and did anyone see wade carry the team with his shots in game 7 but no one riding his dick and shane battier wasnt for his shooting either but lets say its james cuz he has what one or two games in a 7 game series hell danny green shot better except for last two games at least thats 5 games and not two

  • DontMatter!

    Lebron can fight in the ufc with 6-12 month of training. Lets see Sonnen play in the nba with 6-12 of training.

    • fer

      ass kissers

    • unclealfie

      and….? what’s your point?

    • The Snilbog

      Lebron would get wasted as a heavy weight in the UFC. No doubt about it. Have you seen him cry out in agony when he gets bumped on his way to the basket?

    • Darren Shafferman

      lebron wouldnt last one round of constant fighting put him in with brock lesnar and see how he does lol
