This week’s show was fantastic. Andrew Klavan stopped by, and we walked you through on the extensive voting process. It’s fun, but more importantly, super duper educational. Like, duper. You can listen to the full podcast at the bottom of the page, subscribe on iTunes or SoundCloud (for all your mobile needs) AND… watch the exclusive web-extended interview with Chael P. Sonnen below. A full hour in fact.
It’s actually a pretty extensive interview in which Chael discusses his jab toward Joe Rogan on Twitter, politics, steroids, drug legalization, Mel Gibson, Racism and of course… the current state of the Heavyweight division. It’s an hour and twenty minute interview, so the below video is timecoded more specifically to his MMA comments, but the rest is fun too. Some highlights as they relate to MMA.
“That’s a tough dude right there man…. I did not know he was as good as he is. … I was shocked, I did not think that he could hold up against Cain and not only did he hold up, he BROKE Cain. Yeah that submission was there, but if it hadn’t been a guillotine it would have been an armor it would have been a choke, Cain was ready to be done. There were a million different ways to end that fight… That’s the point of fighting. To make the other guy quit.
On whether there’s a current case to be made for Werdum being among the top 3 heavyweights of all time, Chael addressed Fedor, Werdum’s standing losses, and then of course went full Chael on the heavyweight division –
“The whole point for point thing doesn’t exist. You want to figure it out, let’s get in the cage. A few of us will enter regardless of weight class and we can figure this damn thing out.
… The bottom-line is Jon Jones will show up and kick his ass right now (Werdum). He’d kick his ass it wouldn’t even be a problem. Daniel Cormier could go up and kick his ass! It’s the heavyweight class, he’s a tough guy, but it’s a wimpy weight class it always has been. If you’re a good athlete and you’re a heavyweight, you go into the NFL! You don’t go into cage fighting, the weight-class sucks and I don’t have respect for it, so there.
