Fox Sports Pundit To Fan: “Speak English, I Don't Speak Ghetto”

As previously noted here, Fox Sports pundit/middling professional fighter Chael Sonnen is an asshole who does all sorts of things that one has a hard time imagining, say, fellow Fox Sports pundits Terry Bradshaw or Tim McCarver getting away with.
