Chael Sonnen at UFC 117MMAWeekly Radio on Wednesday presents a special 30-minute interview with UFC on Fox 2 fighter Chael Sonnen.

Sonnen joins the show to talk about everything from Anderson Silva to Mark Munoz to Mike Tyson to CM Punk and everything in between.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy 30 minutes with the most interesting man in the UFC.

(Editor’s Note: This interview was conducted prior to Mark Munoz’s injury forcing him to withdraw from the UFC on Fox 2 fight card. But trust us, Chael had way more to talk about than just Munoz.)

Also a couple of debate topics on Wednesday’s show including:

– Best trash talker in the history of sports?
– Will we ever see Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva 2?

    He does bring up alot of very good points (Cheal Sonnen) and he does state that he doesn’t want to see Anderson Silva hurt or sick, He’s just Jealous, And kudos to Cheal Sonnen for having the balls to admit he is just jealous and wants to be champ.

    I wouldn’t go that far. He didn’t say he was “just” jealous. He said that you can call a part of not liking him is jealousy. I don’t recall exactly how he worded it. He may have even said just before he said jealous, but in the conversations context there’s more to it. He still is stateing that he views Anderson as a phony, and that’s a big part of why he doesn’t like him. He views him as undeserving of the accolades thrown his way.

    I took more from it that it’s not Anderson he really dislikes, but the way the guy is viewed/treated by everyone else.

    I hadn’t recalled him ever saying in the past that if Anderson was in trouble he would help him out. At one point he said he’d write him a check if he got down on his luck.
    He does so many interviews he may have said that before, but I hadn’t heard that before.

    I thought he did a decent job of explaining how he does things. I do think he doesn’t get enough credit for how creatively witty he is. He gets treated as if he’s a foul mouthed guy when he’s not really. He broke down the Evans comment and situation spot on. Spot on with my own opinion I mean.

    Hes one of the most interviewed people out there. I don’t think it’s easy to find a bunch he hasn’t talked about before. However it did seem to me to be an interview that wasn’t like a promo bit. A lot of his interviews seem like a series of one liners. This one not so much, so I thought it seemed a bit different.
