    Has interesting guests, asks all the right questions always has great stories to tell and it's actually wrestling/mma related most of the time. Funny how a guy who has achieved way more than Schaub and is the GOAT of trash talk is more humble than Schaub on his podcast

    Chael's an interesting dude
    some of his humour is sublime

    when he joked about how he thought he lost
    "just the one round" when Anderson triangle choked him out
    after beating on Anderson for 4 rounds
    that was hilarious

    his fight predictions tend to suck:p

    he's a pretty good interviewer
    and good with his guests

    I have only listened to a few episode but it's really good, I agree. I don't like Chael or his politics but he's a really good host and gets the guests to open up.

    Chael always had the gift of gab. So no surprise to me..

    I'm amazed that people are actually interested in seeing him fight again. He's pushing 40 if not already there, coming off a 2 plus year layoff, lost 3 out of his last 4, and his style wasn't exactly exciting.

    wasn't a fan when he fought, but I am now

    Since when did Sonnen achieve more than Schaub?

    Only Tuf Noobs think highly of Sonnen. No one gave a fuck about this guy for the majority of his career. The guy pisses hot, and sounds like he saved a nation if you listen to him talk, taps to strikes, etc. I still remember Maia throwing him around like a child and tapping him out so quick, but no one was surprised because it was chael sonnen.

    I actually thought quite the opposite, for someone who made his career on talking his podcast is lame and contrived.

    I agree. He's a great, entertaining talker. Not just with MMA, but with any topic as well.

    I listen to him more often than rogan but hes not as plentiful.

    I like his personal rants usually more so than his guests but i do not like the ad plugs in the middle. Rogan does his ads correctly.
