Default Ariel Helwani: Backstage with Chael Sonnen


This is an amazing 19 minute interview. At the beginning, he's discussing his suspension, TRT & Marquardt, and it's very informative & thoughtful & interesting. Then Ariel asks a question about Wanderlei (around the 6min mark) & it just becomes hilarious!

There's one point where he takes a jab at Matt (I'll let y'all find it, I don't wanna spoil the joke, but start listening at aroun the 13min mark), but I thought it was funny & done in good fun. Maybe y'all disagree with me, whatever:

very good interview ... i think he wants to say that he feels nate got screwed, but doesn't want to piss off dana .. LOL .. you have a guy like nate who goes through the proper channels and screws up a card and gets canned on the spot .. and then you have a guy like thiago silva who knowingly takes something against the rules, fights knowing he is breaking the rules and puts another fighter in danger, knows he is going to fail the drug test and puts something in his urine sample to hide the fact that he cheated, and as far as i know, hasnt' been cut or fired .. crazy .. if anything, dana used the word disgusting to describe nate, but that is exactly the perfect term for what thiago did ..

Nate was given several chances. This wasn't his first time. The way Dana feels is fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me. So he was not about to not voice his disgust...

That was a million times better than any pro-wrestling promo ever. Absolutely hilarious. I wish he didn't cheat.

A lot of it is similar to the "Uncle Chael" thread you already posted, but he expands on it a lot!!!
