UFC fighter Chael Sonnen was on Highly Questionable with Dan LeBatard yesterday, and to say that the Miami loudmouth columnist was flabbergasted by the interview was... well, it was appropriate.

For those who are confused, Sonnen isn't a champion, and isn't undefeated. He lost a middleweight title bout to UFC kingpin Anderson Silva in August 2010 after dominating for four rounds and tapping out after falling into an armbar in the fifth. After the fight, Sonnen tested positive for high testosterone levels, and was suspended for a year. His comeback fight was this past October against Brian Stann, who he submitted in the second round. It's also worth noting that Sonnen was also beat by submission in the UFC in February 2009 by Demian Maia, who is also competing on this Saturday's card.

Sonnen was also convicted of money laundering in January 2011 and plead out to receive a fine and two years of community service. So now that we've established that the man is a chronic liar and nutcase who has a history of insane interviews... why not watch him fight?! Sonnen will face Michael Bisping, another loudmouth who loves to talk a mean game, this Saturday on UFC on FOX, with a main event of Rashad Evans vs Phil Davis. The winner of the main event will receive a title match against champion Jon Jones, and the winner of Sonnen's fight will receive a title match with champion Anderson Silva.

If Sonnen is able to defeat Bisping and gain his rematch, expect a lot more crazy interviews like this. Sonnen has been insufferable since his fight with Silva, and another match on the horizon would simply push him to the point of irritation.
