It appears Chael Sonnen’s (Pictured) New Year’s resolution was to make insincere apologies. After verbally assaulting UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva for most of 2011, Sonnen dedicated Tuesday’s ‘Chael’s Corner’ segment on FUEL TV’s UFC Tonight to “The Spider” by issuing an ambidextrous apology in true Uncle Chael fashion.
His letter of remorse went a little something like this:
Over the last several months, I’ve disparaged your name in an attempt to garner respect and attention for my own. That was wrong and I apologize. My actions were unsportsmanlike, they were uncalled for. Though they weren’t mean-spirited, I do regret them.
As you know, I’ve recently become the number one contender, which is a position that respectfully and immediately I am resigning from. I wish no further confrontation with you in the Octagon or through the media.
In short, I surrender.
Signed, your friend,
Chael P. Sonnen
P.S. I changed my mind. Anderson, you kiss my ass!
