Chael Sonnen Calls Full Time Fighters Lazy, Sells Real Estate

The Houston Chronicle's Jeremy Botter recently got a chance to chat with current number 1. middleweight contender, Chael Sonnen. Keeping with his tradition of providing quote worthy material, Sonnen now sets his sites on so called 'full time fighters.'

"Look, anybody who is a full time fighter is a full time lazy guy. There's no way. What do we work out for, three hours a day? I've got a two hour session with Team Quest and a one hour session on my own each day. That's three hours a day. I've got friends who spend more time playing golf. That leaves you 21 hours a day," Sonnen told Brawl Sports.

"You can either contribute to society or you can play Playstation. There is no such thing as a full time fighter. You can say that all you want, but unless you're working out 40 hours a week -- which you are not -- it's just not full time. That's just the truth."

I know it may seem like I'm a full time blogger, but in actuality, I only blog about three hours day. That other 21 hours is spent doing the lord's work in a manner comparable to Betsy Ross or Gandhi. My daily training regimen kicks off with waking at dawn, a half dozen raw eggs in a glass, and a ten mile run. From there, I go wherever God takes me. These prima donna fighters need to realize that while playing video games may help turn you into a top surgeon, there's nothing quite like selling real estate to make you a better humanitarian. You guys make me sick.
