Chael Sonnen Now Making Domestic Violence Jokes About Rihanna [UPDATE]

As has been exhaustively documented here, much to the displeasure of his core fanbase of men's rights activists, truthers, and racists, Fox Sports 1 pundit/middling professional fighter Chael Sonnen is a shitbag, or at least someone willing to play one on television for money, which amounts to the same thing.

Fox Sports 1's Debut Will Be Headlined By Terrible Fights

Past the public rhetoric about jockularity and fun and providing an alternative to the tweedy intellectualism of ESPN (no really), Fox Sports 1's strategy is simple and sensible: air sports people want to watch.
