UFC Middleweight Chael Sonnen

The Chael Sonnen comedy tour made a quick stop in Texas today for a Q&A session inside the Frank Erwin Special Events Center. While the witty wordsman has earned rave reviews for his lethal stand-up act, Sonnen shared his softer side with Octagon fans when he whipped out an original Chael Sonnen poem.

Guess who the masterpiece was dedicated to…

Sure it will never be mistaken for something written by Walt Whitman, but it’s not too shabby for a part-time realtor turned middleweight top contender. At the same time, it was the least he could do after embarrassing the planet’s baddest 185-pounder for 23 minutes and 10 seconds last month at UFC 117.

While the consolation prize of an immediate rematch has helped eased the pain of blowing the opportunity of a lifetime, Sonnen wanted to do something a little “special” for the division’s king. For those of you that enjoy the piece, the poet claims it’s only the first stanza. However, if his writing isn’t your cup of tea, too bad because there’s more coming regardless.

Here’s the love note Sonnen authored for his bitter rival. He didn’t title it, so we’ll just call it Ode to Anderson:

Anderson think it through
There’s still a few months before they lock the cage door behind me & you
Last time they raised your hand
But it was plain to see
That I took a lot more out of you than you took out of me
I broke the mirror and I blew away the smoke
It was me who tapped
But it was you who broke
