My Interviews with Chael Sonnen & Nate Quarry
 
Hey guys -- In case any of you are interested I've been doing some fun interviews lately.

First - I had the pleasure of interviewing Chael Sonnen, BUT the piece ended up not being published on the website that hired me...as they were uncomfortable with the content. LOL. If you're a Sonnen fan, it's an entertaining read...and if you're not a Sonnen fan, well...it might give you more fuel to dislike him. ;)

Second - I just posted a new article on my blog ModernAthena.com today, an interview with Nathan Quarry. If you haven't been to my blog it's all about women being smart, sexy and strong. So periodically I interview guys to get their thoughts on women being athletic and beautiful. Nate had some great things to say!

I think there's a typo neat the top- "now a lot of them are just flat-out hungry." I think he meant "flat out NOT hungry." ?

Anyway, he's kind of funny, and really weird. Totally right about the heavyweight division though.

And... maybe a bit bitter about being triangled by a certain African Brazilian?

LOL - no it's not a typo. He's saying before they were hungry to fight, now they are just hungry, meaning hungry for food -- i.e. critiquing guys that show up fat like Roy Nelson.

Ohhhhh! Now that's funny.

He's funny but sometimes I think he just can't be serious with half the stuff he says. Like about triangles being for cowards. Dude you lost, Silva beat you.

I was so impressed with Quarry that he came back after back surgery.

I'm so NOT impressed with Sonnen and how he handled the alleged doping.

Great interviews though, Becca!

Thanks for sharing Becca - Nate seems like a class act, Chael seems like the class clown - wouldn't want to fight either of them!

Vickie - Do you know that Nate just ran a marathon in Alaska this past weekend? He's been doing a lot to be an example for people with back injuries -- pretty impressive!

And thanks everybody for reading these! Nate and Chael are both really good guys - if you ever met them in person you'd be hard pressed to decide which one of them was more well-mannered and polite.

Becca, I hadn't heard that he completed a marathon as well...wow! Amazing what state-of-the-art technology and a lot of willpower and determination can do. :)

I'm admittedly a little envious that you got to hang out with these guys in person. Was there anything that surprised you about either of these guys?

I've actually known them both for a number of years as I used to work for Team Quest and their MMA promotion, SportFight, back in the old days when Randy was still there. So, they're just normal, old-fashioned guys to me. Chael is a good friend and I think most people would be surprised by how generous and personable he is in real life.
