God bless Chael Sonnen. The second you think you’re 100% done with his schtick and could live a happy life never seeing him fight again, he pulls something like this.
This is all in reaction to Shogun Rua’s original opponent Lil Nog pulling out of UFC 161 with a back injury. That shit goes down in two weeks, which means Shogun has a Jon Jones approved excuse to refuse the fight. UFC 161 was hurting the second another interim bantamweight title fight was slotted as the main event, and then that fight got scrapped. Now it’s Evans vs Henderson at the top of the card with Rua vs Lil Nog originally in second place. Now I guess Nelson vs Miocic moves up and we get to remember what cards were like during The Great Gypsy Curse era.
