Michael Lansberg of TSN‘s ‘Off The Record’ has been around Canadian TV for over 3000 episodes. Lansberg has had plenty of controversial guests on the show, but has never once seen someone the likes of Chael Sonnen.
The interview started off extremely rocky as Lansberg accused Sonnen of backing out of the loser leaves town offer he extended to Anderson Silva following his victory at UFC 136. “You might want to take the bass out of your tone, I’m not sure you know who you’re talking to here, but I’ve never backed down from anything, so check your facts.”
Lansberg and Sonnen never settled down as Sonnen referred to the line of questioning as “gotcha” and “stupid.” Eventually Sonnen got fed up with Lansberg’s “stupid” questions and stormed off the set after just 10 minutes.
