Video: Sonnen's mother nearly shoots Yushin Okami in middle of night

Video: Sonnen's mother nearly shoots Yushin Okami in middle of night
December 7th 2012

Chael Sonnen is friendly with Yushin Okami to the extent that the Japanese middleweight frequently visits West Lynn, Oregon to train with Sonnen and his team. When he’s in town he stays at Sonnen’s mother’s house and has the run of the place, letting himself in and out via the security keypad on the front door.

Okami’s English isn’t the best though and so when he changed some plans at the last minute, chaos ensued and Sonnen’s mother nearly ended up shooting him. Literally nearly ended up shooting him. Chael Sonnen tells the story of how his Japanese friend ended up standing in the hallway with an alarm going off at 1am gibbering “Yushin Okami, thank you!” while having a shotgun pointed at him….

This story made me cry laughing. This video is also notable for Anderson Silva swearing in English at the end - good job Anderson! Your English is getting better and better!
