Dan Henderson and Chael Sonnen have been training partners for quite some time. It looks like Henderson has finally met his breaking point with Chael and the persona that he presents himself with media. During the whole drama that was UFC 151, Chael stated that he knew about Dan’s injury and prepared for Jones beforehand. Looks like Dan disagrees with what transpired. He discussed his take on the event to MMAfighting.
Have you known Chael to tell the truth all the time? Or ever, for that matter? No, it’s absolutely not true, there is no truth to that whatsoever. It’s one thing for him to say what he says, but when it involves me in a little lie, I guess that’s when I have a problem with it. But I didn’t put a lot of stock into it because I think Chael’s proven that not everything that comes out of his mouth is the truth. Usually he texts me when he’s going to say something. I had no warning on that one.”
We all know that whatever comes out of Chael’s mouth should usually be taken with a grain of salt. Chael is always trying to keep himself in the headlines and this is just another verbal exchange to keep him relevant.
Did Chael know about Dan Henderson’s injury prior to UFC 151 or is he just being the same ol’ Chael P. Sonnen that we know he’s known to be?
Both fighters have bigger things to worry about. Dan Henderson fights Rashad Evans this weekend at UFC 161 and Chael headlines the first UFC On Fox Sports 1 event against former UFC light heavyweight champion, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
