Could Chael Sonnen take on Sylvester Stallone on a real fight?
In the following footage UFC commentator Mike Goldberg asks the both of them about their thoughts on mixed martial arts. Sylvester Stallone, despite being in an MMA venue, clearly disses MMA. Goldberg wants him to elaborate, and asks him to compare MMA to boxing. Stallone’s response? ” To me, MMA is like pro-wrestling. ” Uh oh. Sonnen, unsurprisingly, walks to both men’s faces and confront them. He’s starting to threaten them. It’s no surprise that a former UFC fighter would defend MMA’s legitimacy, really. De Niro, a known badass, dares him to throw the first strike. Stallone joins in on the conversation, a gesture that really did not please Sonnen. The former UFC star is getting fed up. He lets go a rude “Shut up, old man!” and slaps Sylvester Stallone!
That is ballsy gesture, but it came back to bite Sonnen in the ass.
The thing is, you can’t smack f**king Rambo and expect no consequences. The movie star doesn’t even flinch, and throws a big right hook that lands on Sonnen’s jaw! The latter falls to the ground. He’s just got son’d by Sylvester Stallone himself!
