Former UFC contender Chael Sonnen had some very interesting things to say in a recent sit-down with Submission Radio. Check out this video of him exploring multiple topics, and diving into his belief that Conor McGregor and José Aldo are both shaking in their boots right now thinking of facing each other.
Are they really scared to lose, though? There's a lot on the line.
"I have never seen a fight of this magnitude where both guys are so scared that they're going to lose. Every time you have a huge fight in wrestling, in boxing, in MMA, both guys are sure they're going to win. They really believe it. These guys are so scared of one another and so positive that the other guy is going to beat them. I've never seen anything like it."
Like many of McGregor's haters, he thinks that he's setting himself up for a fall of epic proportions.
"Conor McGregor is feathering a nest for a fall. It's so apparent to a guy who understands the psychology of sport. He just did an interview where he said, 'The secret ingredient to success is failure' and 'nobody can really be the best until they get beat.' That's just not true. I could name a bunch of guys who went undefeated. You don't have to get beat. It was a weird thing for him to say and he was feathering the nest."
He also talked some shit about Aldo.
"Jose Aldo, this guy's a chicken. I can't even tell you how good Jose Aldo is but he doesn't think it. When Georges St-Pierre retired and Jon Jones was absent, I had Jose Aldo the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world. That's how highly I think of him. That guy's a chicken. He's pulled out of five fights. He's already pulled out of this one once."
Sounds like Sonnen wants to schedule a kind of off-camera fight of sorts between both of these guys. Not sure why he's talkin' all that shit when he knows he won't have to back any of it up, but yeah...
What do you think?
