Chael Sonnen is a brash, intelligent speaker who paved the way for the current state of the UFC and MMA in general. He calls out his opponents with equal parts humor and bully tactics, with a strange undercurrent of accurate observations. Sure, Sonnen uses hyperbole all the time, but before Mystic Conor McGregor, there was Chael Sonnen. Now, the former #UFC middleweight and light heavyweight title contender is heading to Celebrity Apprentice.
Sonnen took Anderson Silva to his limit. He's a grinding, punishing fighter who has beaten Nate Marquardt, Shogun Rua, and Michael Bisping.

This also bolsters Chael's star power ahead of his Bellator 170 showdown with Tito Ortiz. Spike surely likes that.
Let's bask in the glory of Chael's trash talk, for old time's sake.
