UFC 194 will see the biggest fight in the history of the UFC Featherweight division featuring the unstoppable Jose Aldo and the unmissable Conor McGregor. With a fight this big we figured we need a big guest, and they don't get much bigger than The American Gangster, Chael Sonnen.
December 11, 2015
Chael Sonnen was one of the biggest draws in the history of MMA. His rivalry with Anderson Silva helped to create a legend and cemented Chael's place as "the peoples' champion." A regular analyst with ESPN's MMA coverage, Chael's breakdown of fights and unique perspective have made sure that his transition from life inside the octagon to life outside the octagon has been just as captivating for audiences.
A man who is no stranger to controversy and at one point had the entire nation of Brasil out to get him, Chael Sonnen has never backed down from speaking his mind and calling it as he sees it, and that's exactly what went down when we spoke to him.
The former UFC middleweight and light heavyweight title challenger joined us to discuss UFC 194 and give us his thoughts on the biggest fight card of the year. We also talked to Chael about his own podcast (You're Welcome - available on iTunes) and how that started. We hear about his involvement with pro wrestling and we hear a little about his plans for the holiday season.
On top of this the lads have their usual bit of messing and laughing, Danny breaks into song, Lindsey hates Harry Potter and Mero is over Rocky. We talk Geek Ireland and the 2015 Geekies and reveal who we'll have on WTSpod next week.
