Upon Further Review: Chael Sonnen talks about Lance Armstrong

New, 8 comments

With the news coming out that Chael Sonnen has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in the wake of his UFC 117 middleweight championship fight with Anderson Silva, we have to bring this back up:

Now this interview is even more comical considering Sonnen's positive test. Sonnen told Larry Pepe that "Lance Armstrong ... cheated, he did drugs, he gave himself cancer." And said that Armstrong made himself the victim and profited from it. How will Sonnen spin this, if he even attempts to? Will he attempt to "make himself the victim" and profit from it, like he claims Armstrong did? Will Sonnen market "TALKSTRONG" bracelets? The possibilities are endless here.

This saga is going to play out here in the coming days, weeks and months. We need to hear from Sonnen and hear his defense. We need to find out what the steroid was and what the levels were. With this being the first high-profile failure in some time, I have this feeling that this will have a profound impact on the sport. I could be wrong, but that's just the feeling I get.
