Chael Sonnen is one of the best fighters the UFC has ever seen. Sonnen established himself not only as a fine fighter but one of the first people in the sport to use mental warfare to his advantage and cripple his opponent before throwing a single punch.
Sonnen has never been shy of speaking his mind regardless of who he is against. This was something that made him incredibly popular among fans but also landed him in trouble a few times. The American fighter took to Twitter to voice his opinion on an individual.
Chael Sonnen goes on a scathing rant on Jim Gray
Jim Gray is an American Sportscaster. He is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, reporter, producer, and executive producer of sports documentaries and features.
Gray has been in the business for a long time and has covered some of the most iconic moments in the NFL, Boxing, and Basketball.
The 12 time Emmy Award winner recently set out on a new venture. Gray published a book titled ‘Talking To GOATs’ where he interviewed some of the greatest athletes of this generation such as LeBron James, Tom Brady, Michael Phelps, and Michael Jordan.
The former UFC fighter took to Twitter to bash Jim Gray ahead of interviews on TV. Sonnen tweeted, “When you wash out of TV you write a book clinging to the lies you tried to sell when duping networks. @JimGrayOfficial is a CHARLATAN.”
Sonnen was extremely critical of Jim Gray and his career as he launched a barrage of Tweets aimed at slandering Gray. In another Tweet, Sonnen said, “You never met, Simone Biles, GSP, or John Smith . You don’t even know there names. You scammed @kilmeade – You are a FAKE.”
Though there is no prior history of bad blood between the two men, Sonnen is never afraid to call someone out if he thinks something is not right.
