UFC Fighter Chael Sonnen -- I Avoid Street Fights

8/7/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He's a bona fide bad ass in the ring -- but out on the streets, UFC brawler Chael Sonnen claims he refuses to get it on ... even when some wannabe tough guy tries to provoke him into violence.

Sonnen -- who's fighting Anderson "The Spider" Silva tonight -- tells us people have been "unsuccessful" in baiting him into street fights in the past ... insisting that he "turns the other cheek" ... a different approach than the one recently taken by ex-UFC star Roger Huerta.

We also asked Chael if his hands were registered as lethal weapons ... to which he replied, "No they’re not ... but they probably should be."

antwone or whatever kooky name you have.......Racist is a meaningless word you clown. That black chicken sh*t got his butt kicked because he hit a woman. All blacks are racists because every one of them voter for obummer just because he is black so go take your little cry wolf word and stick it where the sun don't shine. Did you see the way that cs ran?

Wow, what an angle, what a story. The other guy didn't so much as get into a street fight as he taught someone a lesson. You should have asked this guy if it would bother him if some great big guy punched-sucker punched-some girl in the head. I have to say I like the other guy more because had that UFC fighter not have been there, it didn't look like anyone would have done anything. The other guys on the scene looked mad but because of the size of the bully, they just looked mad as they stared and nothing more. Go Roger! He's a bad ass in my book because he taught that guy a lesson, a good one and one I think he'll heed in the future.

I have met him many times and he's not racist. Get over the race b.s. wrong is wrong Huerta made it right. Also, jw not all black people voted for Obama a lot of people of different races did so grow the hell up and just be ready for 2012. Finally, Go Silva! Kick Sonnen's ass! Even though Sonnen's way hotter than Silva he has talked too much chit on Silva not to get his ass beat by him.

Oh so someone isn't a racist because you met them? He's a white male , of course he's racist. This is a system of white supremacy , he's supposed to be.

Number 1. The guy that hit the woman wasn't taunting huerta to fight, Huerta asked the guy if he just his a woman and the guy wanted or at least tried to get tough with huerta and got what he asked for, a good ol fashion ass woopin. So this guy would let a female get hit and walk away, good for you. I agree with huerta, if someone was doing this to his mother, sister, he hopes someone would stand up for them.

Uh    

# 16...I don't remember you being there. Where did you get your info? What do you think Huerta (a man who fights professionally) would respond with? "Yeah officer, I used my fighting skills to punch out his lights....hahahahaha". Also, if you got your info from a tabloid, do you really think it went down the way TMZ said it did? Grow up.
