Chael Sonnen: ‘He Said Yes; That’s What Separates the Michael Bispings From the Rest’

Chael Sonnen on Bisping Grappling Match

You can say whatever you want about the UFC turning to Michael Bisping to fight Luke Rockhold at UFC 199. Chael Sonnen certainly doesn’t care what you think. At the end of the day, he says, Bisping steps up, no matter what, so he deserves the shot.

  • Guys like Bisping and Sonnen like to talk their way into title shots because they simply can’t earn one or just aren’t good enough to get a title shot.

    • How has Bisping not earned it? Use your brain kid.

      • look at all the top middleweights he’s lost to. finally beating one doesn’t justify he’s earned it.

  • Who’s this whiny guy, Chael Sonnen?

  • Chael is straight up gangster behind a microphone.

  • because somehow a steroid cheat and a ex felon who is banned from the sport.somehow his opinion is relevant, smfh

  • Of course Bisping jumped at this, it’s the only way he’d get a title shot. As long as he’s competitive, he wins. He could lose a close fight and say “I’d have won with a full camp”, and another shot will likely come soon.

    The bigger story is Rockhold saying “no” to Uriah Hall.

    • Keep in mind Bisping is probably a bigger name than Rockhold as screwy as that sounds. So Luke will make more money fighting Bisping for sure. If Hall were a bigger draw he’d fight him in a a heartbeat i bet.

    • not really, Hall isn’t ranked as high as Bisping and Bisping is a bigger name which brings more money. Pretty simple, fight and not make as much money or fight and make as much money as possible, either way Rockhold will win.

    • Uriah hall has been doing the hot/cold thing since he debuted. i’d say no to a guy too if he lost to john howard of all people.

  • Why is he yelling?

  • Where is Romero in all of this? Oh yeah, has to get his camp ready so he can pass a urine test.

    • his suspension is over yet.

  • Ever since Chael fought Bisping, he’s been kissing his ass. Maybe they’re banging each other.

    • Jealous?

      • Nah, man. I get to pump your dad’s ass often, so no big deal.

B.J. Penn Removed from UFC 199 for Potential Anti-Doping Violation

Former UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn has been removed from the UFC 199 fight card after being flagged by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for a potential anti-doping policy violation.BJ-Penn-UFC-107-Post-Presser-750

Penn was scheduled to take on Cole Miller on the June 4 fight card at The Formum in Inglewood, Calif., and the UFC is currently seeking a replacement. On Monday, the UFC released a statement regarding Penn’s removal from the event.

“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed BJ Penn of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation. Penn disclosed the usage of a prohibited method – the use of an IV in excess of 50 ML in a six-hour period – during a March 25, 2016, out-of-competition sample collection. In accordance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, Penn has received a provisional suspension, and has been removed from his scheduled bout against Cole Miller on June 4 in Los Angeles.

“UFC will announce a replacement opponent for Miller shortly, and additional information will be provided by USADA and UFC at the appropriate time as the process involving Penn moves forward,” read the statement.

Penn retired from fighting after suffering a third loss to Frankie Edgar in July 2014. In January, the 37-year-old announced his intentions to return to competition. This is the second time his return has been scrapped. He was scheduled to participate on the UFC 197 fight card on April 23, but was removed from the event after criminal allegations surfaced. The UFC launched an investigation and later cleared Penn of any wrongdoing.

  • The title should read “BJ Penn Removed From UFC 199 To Prevent Him From Further Tarnishing His Name”. Every time BJ comes back he manages to look even worse that he did with his previous “comeback”.
    Now he’s doping too? I remember when he beat Sherk how much he claimed to hate cheaters.

    • Well he got busted for using an IV in excess. I have no idea what that even means. Maybe that’s the new way guys cheat the tests? Use steroids, then after a couple days of recovery use an IV to flush out the system so a test won’t pick it up?

      • Well that can be one what it may be used for or he maybe dehydrated or the new rules say you must maintain within a certain percentage of body weight in interval weight checks to ensure no one does cuts weight too much and dies. First thing to cut easily is water weight or maybe he had a shitty doctor that gave him too many IV bags. Either way designer steriods are meant to circumvent todays test. Meaning tests are useless. Hint that’s why like 8 years later olympic athletes are getting busted. It took 8 years for the testing method to catch up.

  • BJ, take a hint….God wants you to stay retired!

  • Give it up already. What are you trying to prove. You going to get destroyed. This is a yound man’s sport.

  • Here’s your sign.

  • Completely confused why anyone would use IV out of competition? Any experts shed light? Sounds like a weird rule to me….

  • Tippy toes screwed up again.

  • damn, I was really looking forward to watching b.j. get beat into retirement again. whatever reputation he had it is completely gone now.

  • I’ll have to wait to hear the full explanation on this one, because I don’t get this one. For starters, that was two months ago.

  • LOL, stupid little sh1t can’t keep it together.

  • Hello Moto

  • For those couch potatos that are saying he should stay retired clearly have never, ever, ever in your life competed at the highest levels of sports competition. There is a desire to compete that never really goes away, especially when you were once the best in the world.

    • For those that think he still has something left to offer, I have some magic beans to sell you…BJ Penn was a great champion, but is out of shape well past his prime…he loses every future match…

  • Obviously, he was taking this to lose/ cut weight…once a cheater, always a cheater…

Miesha Tate, Ronda Rousey, Michelle Waterson, and Holly Holm Make SI’s Top 50 Fittest Female Athletes

The decision to bring women into the UFC wasn’t made until November 2012, and they debuted in February 2013. In three short years, the fighting ladies have made their mark in sports. Sports Illustrated released their list of the top 50 fittest female athletes in the world and four UFC fighters were among them.

Reigning women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate was ranked in the 30th position by SI’s selection panel.

“Tate officially joined the UFC in 2013 and is the current UFC women’s bantamweight champion after defeating former titleholder Holly Holm at UFC 196 in March. The 29-year old is training for her first title defense against Amanda Nunes, at UFC 200 which, if anything like her last pre-fight camp, will feature sparring sessions, footwork drills with a ladder and more,” wrote SI about “Cupcake.”

Former Invicta FC atomweight champion and current UFC strawweight contender Michelle Waterson made the list in the 26th spot.

“Mixed martial artist Waterson trains with Team Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA in Albuquerque, N.M., and has also trained in WuShu, Muay Thai, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, boxing and wrestling. Waters fits in her workouts – a mixed of MMA sparring, kickboxing and cardiovascular work – between caring or her daughter as a self-described “full-time mommy,” read “The Karate Hottie’s” SI description.

RELATED Jon Jones, Demetrious Johnson and Conor McGregor Make SI’s Top 50 Fittest Male Athletes List

Former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey made the list of the top 50 fittest female athletes in the 19th position.

Ronda Rousey UFC 190 weigh smile“Even after her shocking defeat vs. Holly Holm, Rousey is still in fighting form and vows to return to reclaim her UFC women’s bantamweight champion belt. As she recovers from injuries she sustained against Holm, Rousey is training to get back in the ring by lifting weights, swimming, and working with her coach, Edmond Tarverdyan, and Glendale Fighting Club in California,” SI wrote about “Rowdy.”

Former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm was the highest-ranking female UFC fighter on the list, breaking into the top 10 in the ninth slot.

“Known as The Preacher’s Daughter, Holm is the first person, female or male, to win titles in both boxing and mixed martial arts. The 5’8”, 135-pound southpaw, twice Ring’s Female Fighter of the Year, has devoted countless hours of training to transforming herself into a UFC champion, producing a fearsome blend of power, speed, endurance and agility,” SI wrote about Holm.

Topping the list was British track and field star, Jessica Ennis-Hill. The 30-year-old Olympic champion competes in the heptathlon.

Conor McGregor‘s return to the Octagon has yet to be set, but on Monday it was announced that he would grace the pages of this year’s ESPN The Magazine’s “Body Issue.”

McGregor is far from the first mixed martial artist to be featured in the Body Issue.

Conor-McGregor-UFC-178-Media-Day-3From the UFC alone, Jon Jones, Ronda Rousey, and Miesha Tate have all dropped their cloths for the magazine, which features athletes from multiple sports in artistic nude poses.
