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!

Re: My Interviews with Chael Sonnen & Nate Quarry

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?

Re: My Interviews with Chael Sonnen & Nate Quarry

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.

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.

Re: My Interviews with Chael Sonnen & Nate Quarry

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!

Re: My Interviews with Chael Sonnen & Nate Quarry

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

Re: My Interviews with Chael Sonnen & Nate Quarry

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.

Re: My Interviews with Chael Sonnen & Nate Quarry

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?

Re: My Interviews with Chael Sonnen & Nate Quarry

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.
