"Lance is a dweeb, the only thing he’s missing is the tape on the glasses and the high water pants," Sonnen said. "That guy couldn't get respect at the local Honky Tonk in my hometown. He threatened to sue me so I threatened to kick his ass and the whole thing went away. Look, I get it and I'm kidding but Lance did do some bad stuff and he was a jerk about it. Yeah, he hit me up with the whole 'I'm gonna sue you' routine and I hit him back with the whole 'I'll kick your ass' routine. That's it, that's where it ended. I thought he was going to go through with the lawsuit but he did not."
Sonnen continued, “Who is he bullying? The guy the holding the cups of water at mile marker 6? The old lady that swerves into the bike lane? I don’t even understand the whole thing.”
Armstrong admitted he bullied people when they accused him of cheating.
"I was a bully," Armstrong acknowledged. "In the sense that I tried to control the narrative, and if I didn't like what somebody said, I tried to control that and say that's a lie."
At one point during Armstrong's Oprah interview, he couldn't recall how many people he'd sued.
Many of the people he's sued through the years in an effort to protect his lies and glory were one-time close friends, roommates, teammates, business partners and associates.
Chael Sonnen appears to be one of the many he attempted to sue for calling him a cheater.
