Chael Sonnen has a way with words, his way of telling a story is fascinating. He paints a beautiful picture with his words.

Sonnen and Anik both have to give their opinions on fights, and they will disagree sometimes. Anik knows that and says how he can just listen to Sonnen talk about anything, even if he does not agree with it.

“His deadpan. Smiling face with open mouth and tightly closed eyes, I mean we may disagree on some things but could listen to him talk about most anything,” wrote Anik.
