Chael Sonnen Previews His Upcoming Book 'The Voice of Reason'

First LastCorrespondent IMarch 20, 2012

Chael Sonnen's plans of creating "A Better Earth" may have already begun, but the former UFC middleweight title challenger isn't done just yet, and his upcoming book titled "The Voice of Reason: A V.I.P. Pass to Enlightenment" should help everyone who reads it become him.

While on a one-year suspension from MMA following his loss to Anderson Silva, Sonnen spent the better part of it writing down his thoughts and opinions, including how Vegans are ruining themselves and the world, why you should never feed carrots to a school bus, how fighters and fashion models have the exact same job and why Dance Dance Revolution is the national fighting style of Brazil.

While some of those subjects sound familiar, now he gets to take fans and haters in depth for a page-by-page analysis on everything, or at least a lot of things, that you could have ever wanted to know about the "People's Champion."

With another title opportunity coming up for the former WEC champion in the summer, the 320-page book should be enough to keep any and all Sonnen fans occupied for a good while.

The "Voice of Reason: A V.I.P Pass to Enlightenment" will be available through and released on May 15, 2012.


Description of the book by Sonnen

Presence. Tenacity. Insight. Omniscience. No need to look these words up. They are defined by yours truly. Who am I? I'm the one who needs no introduction, the walking thesaurus, the UFC's most infamous and feared destroyer of men. I am Chael P. Sonnen, and you want to be just like me.

It's your lucky day. What you are holding in your hands is nothing short of a V.I.P pass to enlightenment. In the coming pages my humor and tales of heroic adventure will baptize you in superhuman greatness. Allow me to carry you like a frail damsel as I make a nightmarish decent into the bowels of Sao Paulo. Sit before me as a student as I teach you about my plans of creating a Chaelocracy, which translates to "A Better Earth." Shower me with praise as I take you into my manly mitts like a lump of seemingly worthless clay and craft you into something far better than yourself—me.

Like all great men of myth and legend, I strive for the betterment of the human race. Prometheus brought us fire; Dana White brought us the modern day gladiator; and I bring you a step-by-step guide to being just like me. Do you have what it takes? Is there truly a chance that one day you will be able to walk in my shoes? Purchase this book and find out. There is no better day to stop being you and start trying to be me.

You're welcome civilization.

The anticipated rematch between Sonnen and Silva is targeted for UFC 147 in Brazil on June 16. Silva won the first match by submission in what many consider to be one of the best comebacks in the history of the UFC. Sonnen dominated the action throughout but was forced to tap when Silva applied a triangle choke with several minutes left in the fight.

Sonnen has since rebounded with two victories over Brian Stann and Michael Bisping. Silva would fight twice as well, defeating Vitor Belfort and Yushin Okami.
