    He sounds absolutely hammered. This is bad, he nearly killed himself with drugs and alcohol. I'd hate to see him spiral down again.

    He relapsed like a bunch of times.

    There was a few years ago when he was Vegan and going on all these shows talking about his sobriety for like years. Then he came out and admitted he was drinking the whole time lol, it was kinda funny how it played out in the press.

    In his book he said that he got sober in 2009, relapsed very briefly in 2010, again breifly in 2012, and then had the serious one you mentioned in 2013. This would be his fourth. Fuck.
     
  6. My friend relapsed on heroin 6 times. Went to 4 different rehabs.
    Some people really have some demons.

    Yeah in 2013 he gave a dozen, in-depth, interviews about being sober, on NBC and Ellen, got all these congratulations.
    It was pretty comical when he revealed he was drinking the whole time.

    I don't think he'll even get another interview about sobriety.

    looks like he made it three years. Hope he climbs back on the wagon and stays as long as possible

    Honestly, good for him. Were I in his shoes I'd have given up. I'll be honest.

    You guys are ridiculous, more Tyson commentary please! Tyson+Sonnen would be a great team (have Tank guest for a fight or two).
