Chael Sonnen

This year’s Fighter’s Only World Mixed Martial Arts Awards just got a lot more interesting.

The host for this year’s show will be none other than the always controversial, often outspoken UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen.

Several sources close to the event confirmed Sonnen’s participation in the show to MMAWeekly.com on Friday.

Sonnen, who is fresh off of his win over Brian Stann at UFC 136, may ask to change the title of the show to ‘Chael Sonnen’s World MMA Awards’, but that hasn’t been confirmed as of yet.

The Fighter’s Only World MMA Awards takes place on Nov 30 at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Sonnen will lead the festivities, which will feature several major categories, in the fourth annual event taking place this year.

    CHEATER! Never want to see him fight again. Did not buy the latest PPV because he was on it.

    • Cptmats

      He’s not a cheater you retard. All you haters need to get your head out of your asses instead of talking shit out of pure spite because he made your boy Silva his bitch !

      Please don’t buy the next PPV either, because us real mma fans don’t wanna be associated with douch bags like you.

        Hmm….not a cheater. A guy who fights in a cage for a living and claims he’s low on testosterone….no red flags there, sounds perfectly reasonable. Give me a break. If he did have low testosterone levels it was because he was taking steroids and his balls shrank away ’cause they weren’t needed anymore. He’s also been convicted of money laundering and lost his real estate license. Oh, and he’s a Republican and a good Christian boy..couldn’t be a cheater. On top of that he can’t accept the fact that he got killed by Anderson Silva, who fought most of the fight with a cracked rib. When I say “killed” I’m referring to the triangle, that if not for the ref jumping in and saving his ass, would have rendered Chael unconscious in few more more seconds and allowed Silva to beat him to death at leisure or have prison sex with him or whatever else he wanted to do.
        It’s not really that people who don’t like Chael are haters. The problem really is that you Chael fans fantasize about his little moth balls bouncing off your chins and it clouds your reasoning. Don’t even get me started about his butt buddy Matt Lindland….two peas in a pod.

          You’re lucky you’re not by me or else I’d skull fuck the shit out of you, joto.

          I wonder why anderson wasnt asked to host…i guess his dance with bieber wasnt good enough! He tries so hard to be cool and liked and popular bless him but he doesnt have the charisma of sonnen.

      • Bob

        I guess I shouldn’t have called him a cheater. I should have called him a ONE DIMENSIONAL CHEATER!

        Silva went into the fight with a fractured rib and fought for 4 and 3/4 rounds with Sonnen on top of him for the majority of that time and Sonnen wasn’t able to finish. All he did was pepper him with Fitch style punches and then was triangled by a superior fighter!

        Think about it, if Silva had top position on anyone for 4 and 3/4 rounds he would finish the fight.

        Sonnen is just like Fitch- an MMA blanket.

        I think Chael is a great fighter but it can’t be denied that he cheated. Not only in the Anderson Silva fight but in his real estate money laundering fiasco as well. Having said that, Chael is a beast and I am looking forward the rematch.

  • T Spoon

    This is great. Sonnen does have mic skills, he will rock this. He became a favourite very quickly, in and out of the cage. I have nothing but respect for the man.

    HATER!!! this years mma awards really got more interesting with the best the peoples’ champion the linear champion and the best damn middleweight ever CHAEL P. SONNEN

  • http://www.bloodyfists.net/forums/index.php SHORT_BUS

    LOL at all the nerd rage this will create.

    I like it and think he’ll do a great job.

    This is the best worst idea I’ve ever heard.

    If Anderson wins Fighter of the Year will Sonnen personally hand him the award?

  • BigGuy

    Chael Sonnen is the champ. He is the best MW to ever walk the planet. He is the only reason MMA is where it’s at today. Oh, wait, that is just the fantasy of all Sonnen nut-huggers.

    Sonnen will lose to Silva, and he will lose bad. It will be nothing like the last fight…Maybe then all of you Sonnen nut-suckers will shut the fuck up!

  • L83

    Too many emotions over fighters. I like both, silva is a monster, but sonnen earned my respect, He’s the 2nd best mw in the world , and he’s great for the sport. Sonnen is a master on the mic and beyond funny. Money laundering and steroids are offenses he’s paid for, so it’s time to focus on the fact that he’s a great fighter and good for the sport.

    • MuayThaiFood

      It’s debatable whether Sonnen is good for the sport. Good for hyping a fight and selling seats yes. The most compelling fight for Anderson Silva at this time and the one that makes the most sense..yes. He’s paid his debts for his offenses as you say but that doesn’t mean he’s repentant. I don’t think he’s just sorry he got caught. That means he’s still a dishonest cheater at heart. Not a guy I have much respect for as a person. I’ll still enjoy watching him fight but I hope he’s on the wrong end of a severe beating the next time he fights Anderson or Vitor or whoever they match him up with.

  • wonggfan

    I expect there to be more coverage of SF now that Zuffa has purchased them.

    This MMA awards bullshit was a joke. It was the awards version of the UFC Magazine. Blatant, shameless UFC nuthugging.

  • juniorbra

    Only 3 words for Chael… SORRY ASS LOSER!!!!!!!!!!!
    He should be in Jail now!!!!!! LOSER!!!!!! and he’s fans are just like him!!!!!!!

  • sirreadsalot10

    This whole thread is hilarious. We have everything from Sonnen and Silva man satchel worship to derogitory remarks about republicans and christians. Pleas keep it coming, I need a good laugh. I probably won’t see this much crying again until Obama gets thrown out of the white house next year. LMAO!

  • shakejunt

    i’d bet a substantial amount that chael doesn’t quite stick to any script they give him..
