Brendan Schaub Reveals Story Behind Chael Sonnen’s Hotel Brawl

Brendan Schaub has alleged that he knows the story behind Chael Sonnen’s recent battery citations stemming from an altercation at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas and he claims it leaves the former UFC star looking like the good guy.

“So I think by Chael doing this, it just adds to the legend of Chael Sonnen,” Schaub stated on his ‘Below The Belt’ podcast. “He was protecting his girl. And for that dumbass who got absolutely annihilated by the great Chael Sonnen, you deserved it man. And that’s what you get.”

“This is not a case of Chael hitting his wife like Jon [Jones] did. I think they dropped the charges. This is not a case of Chael Sonnen being high and wrecking his Bentley with strippers in the car. This is not the case of Chael domestic violence in any facet. And I think everyone should hold their judgement to get more details.”

Schaub then went into detail about what he alleges really happened this past Saturday night in the hotel hallway.

“Here’s what happened. Chael Sonnen was obviously working and he was with his wife and his wife is a f*cking saint and also a dime piece. And some drunk guy with his girl kept making comments about his wife, saying about her t**s, her a**, right in front of him.

“Well, play stupid games, win stupid prizes, cause you are talking and disrespecting one of the toughest guys on the planet and definitely one of the toughest ever to compete in the UFC or Bellator for that matter. And you’re doing it in front of his face, then there’s gonna be repercussions. And any guy that wanted to do that for their girl/ladies you got a girlfriend.”

What still remains unclear at this time however is why Sonnen was reported to have been cited for battery of five different people. Despite that, Sonnen wasn’t arrested at the scene since police said that they hadn’t personally witnessed the altercation.

While he’s known to be one of the most outspoken UFC fighters of all-time, Sonnen has so far stayed quiet on what actually happened from his perspective.
