Chael Sonnen Denies Lance Armstrong Comments(Updated)

Chael Sonnen made some comments to Larry Pepe of Pro MMA Radio about Lance Armstrong earlier in the week that had everyone shaking their collective heads. At the 3:25 mark.

“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.”

Now Sonnen does an interview with Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting where he denies the interview ever taking place. At the 4:20 mark.

Below, Larry Pepe of Pro MMA Radio talks about the interview that Sonnen alleges never happened.

Jim Rome grills Sonnen about the comments and Sonnen says he even got a call from Lance himself.
