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.
