Chael Sonnen has faced quite a few of the best fighters around throughout his career. Jeremy Horn, Paulo Fihlo, Nate Marquardt, Yushin Okami, and Anderson Silva of course (just to name a few)… Sometimes he wins, sometimes he losses, but never does Chael Sonnen back down from a challenge. In fact, he’s usually the one to make the challenge, as we’ve seen with the whole Jon Jones fiasco. Hey, it got Chael a title shot as rightful number one contender Dan Henderson is set to fight Lyoto Machida, so what can you do?
If you’re Chael, you make another challenge. If Chael get’s past Jon Jones after TUF (which is a gigantic if, the biggest if in the history of the sport, perhaps) then Chael would welcome a fight with incoming Strikeforce heavyweight force Daniel Cormier. Imagine that: two Olympic level wrestlers ready to duke it out for the UFC title.
No way it’ll ever happen. But… Stranger things…
We caught up with Chael where he revealed this information.
