Chael Sonnen: “Georges St-Pierre Better Pray ‘Shogun’ Accepts My Challenge”

UFC Middleweight Chael Sonnen

Although we’re still months away from the middleweight championship rematch between UFC king Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen, the always entertaining challenger was in mid-season form during Tuesday’s Q&A session as he added more title holders to his hit list.

“G-S-P,” Sonnen shouted.

Most of Sonnen’s venom was once again aimed the “The Spider,” but he sounded serious when talking about a hypothetical match-up with the world’s best welterweight.

So Chael, what if St-Pierre actually accepts your challenge?

“If GSP said he wanted to fight me, the first thing I would say is the same thing I say every time I hear GSP talk, ‘Dang it, that guy sounds like a French-Canadian Minnie Mouse.’ Then I’d say, ‘Hey GSP, let me ask you a serious question, do you have a designated driver? Do you have somebody to get you home safely? Cause clearly you’re intoxicated.’ I would say, ‘GSP, do you have a hankering for pain? GSP did you lose a bet with God? GSP, bring your $3,000 dollar suit, bring your three dollar date and get the three cent tan beat of your socialist back!’ That’s what I would tell GSP, and if you see GSP, you give him that message from me.”

The aspiring politician is also aware of St-Pierre’s wrestling abilities, but doesn’t think the 170-pound ruler can hold his jockstrap when it comes to grappling with the Team Quest fighter.

“GSP would be on his back. He would take me down a total of zero times and I would take him down every time I wanted to,” Sonnen matter-of-factly stated. “Now he’s got other ways to win that fight. It’s not just a matter of who gets a takedown, but I’m not laying under GSP. No chance.”

The odds of a superfight between Sonnen and the welterweight champion are slim. So that begs the question, if not St-Pierre, then who?

“GSP had better pray to heaven above that Mauricio ‘Shogun’ [Rua] accepts my challenge cause one of those two guys is getting beat up,” stated Sonnen.
