But to be fair, I probably would have done likewise.

If you stick your finger in Chael Sonnen's mouth during the course of a wrestling match, he will bite it.

That's according to the "shady" UFC Tonight co-host, who weighed in on the recent kerfuffle involving Uruguayan soccer star Luis Suarez, who was banned for nine games (and four months) by FIFA for biting an opponent during the World Cup on Wednesday.

His words:

"Lets start with what happened on the soccer field. To bite someone in the course of battle at least somehow makes some kind of sense. To walk up behind a guy and just bite into his shoulder is just a very weird thing to do. I've never experienced it in the Octagon, but I have experienced it in wrestling matches. I'll be quite honest, I've been on both sides of it. That's right. I'm very shady. Now, they stuck their finger in my mouth. He put his finger in my mouth and was trying to give me the old fishhook, so I gave him just a little, gentle bite to let him know, 'I will chomp on this thing should you not remove your finger.' Shady."

Erik Perez should have thought of that.

I don't expect there to be any digits at play in the upcoming Metamoris 4 jui-jitsu tournament, where Sonnen faces off against grappling guru Andre Galvao (more on that here), but it would probably be in the Brazilian's best interests to preserve his fingers for after the match.

That middle one might come in handy.
