The ‘American Gangster’ names who he wants to fight in the middleweight division.
UFC star Chael Sonnen has detailed his new deal with the promotion along with a move down to the middleweight division.
Speaking ahead of his upcoming main even fight against ‘Shogun’ Hua on UFC Fight Night 26, Sonnen said he was glad to have his future sorted.
Sonnen (27-13-1 MMA, 6-6 UFC) has joked in in recent weeks he wants extra stipulation from UFC president Dana White in his new deal.
“My contract with the UFC has expired,” Sonnen said
“So I went to Dana White, and I went to him with a list of my demands because he’s getting my contract together. He thought this was a gag, but I was being serious because it’s not all about money with me.”
Speaking to fans at the UFC Fan Expo recently, Sonnen apparently asked the president for his: “least favorite Ferrari. … See, I’m not all about money, people. There’s more to these contracts. They’re very sophisticated.”
