11:38 AM ET 02.12 | UFC middleweight fighter Chael Sonnen is currently taking an encouraged leave of absence from mixed martial arts competition so that he may focus on issues clouding his personal life, namely the fallout from his recent guilty plea in a case alleging him of federal money laundering related to a real estate deal. Sonnen has found enough time during his hiatus to cook up a fresh batch of insults to lob at UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who defeated Sonnen in August.

you're only allowed to **** talk when you win. You lost. Kindly **** and go away.

February 13, 2011  12:37 AM ET

Chael's a ****.

Sonnen has turned into an internet troll.

Big mouth for an illegal substance abuser that is so well known in the MMA world that Brock Lesnar didn???t even know who he was. LOL! How can you trash talk a fighter you let submit you when all you had to do was dance the last 5 minutes and you win? No matter he would have been stripped anyway for being a user!!!

Lesnar on Sonnen ???I don???t know who he is, ???Is he a fighter? I don???t know who he is, I???m serious.??? LMAO I loved it!!!!!

It's simply Chael trying to keep his name in the mix since he's been suspended for cheating AND he has to deal with turning snitch on his friends so he avoids jail time for fraud. Yeah, Chael is a stand up guy. Here's hoping he gets his **** handed to him once and for all (and a healthy Silva destroys Chael inside of two rounds)

this guy needs to be hit by a bus. he thinks he is something special and is a world class loser.

If Sonnen runs his mouth enough to get fans actively hating him, he'll be able to keep fighting based on the publicity and attention alone. Dana White doesn't want solid fighters, he wants to sell tickets.

Man, when somebody talks like that you can only guess what he says to himself for self-esteem. Its so funny cause he knows everybody sees him as less that worth and its killing him cause he feel like he's just suppose to be entitled to glory or something. What a self involved blow hard!

Quiet.....before Silva beats your **** again!

Chael Completely Dominated Silva and will finish him the next time around. If for one moment you believe that most of these guys are not on something, you are sadly mistaken. Silva wants NO part of Chael Again. Silva may have won, But he Got his Arse Beaten to a Pulp. That is what makes him a champ I know. However, I would love to see a rematch to see Chael Dominate him again. Kind of Like Brock Coming back the 2nd time to Whip Mir!

Chael Will Dominate Silva if given a second chance, just like Brock over Mir. Yes, Chael got caught but if for one moment, you believe most of these guys are not on something, you are sadly mistaken. I would love to see a rematch. Chael backed up his crap talking but totally manhandling Silva. Hey, that is what a champ is supposed to do. Pull out a win in the darkest moments. That said, Silva got beat to a pulp and I loved it.

Yeah, it had NOTHING to do with the injured rib Silva had (you try fighting with an injured rib) or the fact that Chael was on 'roids to gain an unfair advantage. If you think ALL fighters take the easy way out and use 'roids, you're sorely mistaken. Silva doesn't need steroids. He'll whoop Sonnen again. That is, if your hero stays out of the big house. You know, for the fraud charges...
