UFC star Chael Sonnen may have a reputation for talking trash but he also appears to enjoy talking turkey. The well-spoken scrapper released a video alongside his Mom where he offered up a Happy Thanksgiving to MMA fans and recounted a few memories from the holiday in his own home.

One story Sonnen shared related to one of his uncles’ love for controlling the family remote in order to watch football – a perfect recipe for sleep according to the light heavyweight title-contender.

However, Sonnen joked that he may try to stay awake this year, cracking that, “As a matter of fact, I think when my athletic abilities diminish I’ll probably join the NFL so maybe I should pay a little closer attention.”
