The former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub is having a hard time believing that Chael Sonnen actually assaulted people in Las Vegas. The now podcaster demanded camera footage to prove that the incident transpired.
Recently, UFC veteran Chael Sonnen got accused of attacking a couple and some a number of security guards at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas. There are currently 11 outstanding charges filed against Sonnen including one felony charge. Sonnen is also facing a civil suit from the couple accosted during the alleged incident.
Surprisingly, Brendan Schaub still refuses to believe the incident actually happened.
Schaub claimed he has stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel before. He said there were so many security cameras all around the corner of that hotel. Schaub went on to claim he won’t believe the story is 100% real until he sees the video evidence. He talked about the incident during the recent episode of his podcast ‘The Schaub Show’.
“I stay at the Four Seasons, a nice hotel. Where’s the security footage? It’s in the hallway. There’s cameras everywhere. Where’s the camera? This is very easy to solve. Where’s the Four Seasons hotel security footage? I’d love to see it.” Schaub said.
Brendan Schaub believes there is another story – a real one – that won’t go public. Schaub believes Sonnen is not the kind of guy who go around causing incidents.
“Again I think there’s this guy’s version of the story, [Chael Sonnen’s] and the truth somewhere in the middle. This is how I operate, you know. I don’t know what happened there. Knowing Chael, I have a hard time, hard time. The guy has no history of violence outside the octagon that randomly picked this innocent family and punched both of them in the face? I have a very hard time believing that. Very, very difficult time believing that.” Schaub added.
Chael Sonnen has been accused of hitting six people, including a woman. He also strangled one of the people he involved and reportedly threw a woman into a light fixture. Sonnen is expected to appear in court for a hearing on April 27. When questioned about the incident he claimed he had no recollection of anything after he took a sleeping pill.
