Chael Sonnen Disgraces MMA with Lance Armstrong Comments

As if the AndersonSilva mudslinging weren't annoying enough, Chael Sonnen has taken his verbal missile launching to new levels. In an interview with ProMMARadio.com Sonnen made the following comments about world class cyclist Lance Armstrong:

"When you screw up, you have to own it. That stuff really gets under my skin. Take Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong did a number of things and he gave himself cancer. He cheated, he did drugs, and he gave himself cancer. Well, instead of saying ‘Hey listen, I cheated and gave myself cancer, don't be like me.' He actually made himself the victim and then went out and profited something like $15 million dollars from this ‘Hey, poor me, let's find a cure for cancer' campaign instead of just coming clean and saying, ‘Look, here's what I did, I screwed myself up, and I hope people learn from my mistakes.' You just watch these guys and can't help but think, God, what a fraud. You got the whole Michael Phelps being a pothead thing too. I'm just glad I'm in the business I'm in so I can get them in the cage and kick the crap out of them."

This is Lance Armstrong, the same man who battled testicular cancer without the use of traditional drugs and came back to win a Tour de France only one year out of remission. 

How dare you Chael? Now the MMA community can enjoy cleaning up your mess. So, I'll take the initiative to begin the clean up process, and offer a video dedicated to Mr. Armstrong.

Lance Armstrong, here's to you:
