So it seems that Chael Sonnen has pretty legit reason for wanting to slap LeBron James.
The UFC fighter recently appeared on “Jim Rome on Showtime” and called the newly crowned NBA champion a dork and said that if he saw him he’d give him the five finger treatment. And according to a story via Fight Geeks, there’s a reason why.
“Let me tell you a story about LeBron. He asked the UFC for tickets for my fight against Anderson Silva. We sit the guy front row, and all through the night he snubs our fans. He’s a guest in our house and he refuses to sign any autographs or take any pictures unless your cup size was later in the alphabet than he was able to learn. And from what I understand, he thinks the letter purple comes after “C.” This guy walked up to my fiancee backstage and asks her if there’s a Tic Tac in her blouse or if she was just happy to see him. I had a UFC employee tell me he saw a mother wheel her handicapped child up to him to get a picture. LeBron was walking towards them. When he reached the kid, the mother stopped the wheelchair. LeBron took the wheelchair, wheeled it out of the way and kept walking. I’d like to slap the divots right off his face.”
Maybe that’s why Sonnen lost to Anderson Silva, because he was looking at what LeBron was doing.
Having a hard time believing that story, but if what Sonnen is saying is true, then I can’t knock him for wanting to slap LeBron, can’t go around snubbing disabled fans and hitting on a dude’s wife all in one night…
