Chael Sonnen is undeniably one of the most recognizable names in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Whether it is Chael the fighter, the analyst, or the promoter, he will always draw a reaction from the fans.
Chael’s popularity skyrocketed during the pre-fight hype for his UFC Middleweight championship bout with Anderson Silva back at UFC 117. Chael ridiculed Silva, Brazil, and other Brazilian fighters in multiple tirades that have become all time trash talking classics. Since then, Chael has talked his way into a title fight with Jon Jones, worked as an analyst on Fox networks, and coached on the Ultimate Fighter among many other things.
Recently, Chael sat down with fellow Fox Sports 1 co-worker, Mike Hill, in a special interview called ‘Keepin’ it Real with Mike Hill’. Chael talks about his persona, Lebron James, a hilarious story about a time he was assaulted by a Woman, and much more. Check out the entire interview in the video below:
Chael is currently coaching against bitter rival, Wanderlei Silva, on TUF Brazil 3. The show will air on UFC Fight Pass once the filming has completed. Chael and Silva will ultimately fight once the show wraps up, and the hype for the fight will likely reach astronomical levels.
