    Default FOX releases statement on Sonnen's inappropriate Rihanna joke

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...-Rihanna-joke/

    During last night's edition of Fox Sports Live, commenator and UFC fighter Chael Sonnen may have crossed the line in a joke he made referencing pop singer Rihanna. Today, FOX issued a statement:

    "FOX Sports regrets the comments Chael Sonnen made during last night's edition of FOX Sports Live. They were an inappropriate attempt at humor that Sonnen acknowledges shouldn't have been made and he apologizes to anyone who may have been offended by his remarks."

    The remarks Sonnen made below were in reference to last weekend's boxing bout between Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez:

    "Look, Floyd (Mayweather) needs to keep doing what he's doing, which is fighting complete tomato cans that we've never heard of before. I've never seen anybody in the history of America get so rich and so famous off of having complete wimps throwing punch at their faces. I know what you're saying. You're saying, ‘Well, it's happened before, what about Rihanna?' ... Too soon? Was it too soon?"

    *I bet the UFC does not discipline the golden boy for his comments yet they came down so hard on so many others.

    I'm not offended at anything other than the fact sonnen thinks he's funny.
    And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
    And the microphone smells like a beer

    It's not offensive, it's true. The Rhianna/Brown fiasco made both of them more famous and more money. I bet Kim Kardashien kicked herself for not thinking of it first.

    I could be wrong but doesn't Kim Kardashian owe all of her fame and money to that first video of her taking shots to the face?
    Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.

    The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.

    HATES the new MMANEWS forum. Bring back the dark background.

    When asked for a response to the comments Chael Sonnen made, Rihanna replied "Who?"

    Technically, he's right in this case.

    Would it be fighter bashing to say that about Chris Brown?

    Rihanna probably needed at least 10 writers to think of something as creative as "who?".
    USA! USA! USA!

    Stealing is wrong!

    Does Rihanna write her own songs?

    Answer:
    She does co-write a lot of her own songs. A lot of people think she doesn't because when they look at who wrote the songs they look for "Rihanna" when really they should be looking for Robyn Fenty, which is her real name. Out of her 6 studio albums so far, there are 2 albums where she didn't write any songs. Those albums are Good Girl Gone Bad, and Loud (her 3rd and 5th albums). As far as I know, she wrote at least a couple songs for her other albums.

    To be fair, she does write a good chunk of her songs.

    I'm sure Kenflo did his nerdy laugh just like he does every time Chael makes a lame joke/ attempt at humor on UFC tonight.

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.
