TSN Off The Record host Michael Landsberg appears to have just broken one of the great sports stories of the year, a stirring tale of the triumph of the human spirit that doubles as a horrifying scandal, unless he didn't. It was definitely one or the other. Probably.
During an interview with Fox Sports pundit/middling professional fighter Chael Sonnen today, Landsberg said he'd been hearing that the day before he was knocked out by Rashad Evans last month, Sonnen had had surgery to remove a piece of his bowel. Sonnen stoically declined to confirm or deny this, just saying that he wasn't much for making excuses after a loss.
