UFC president Dana White didn’t shy away from the Chael Sonnen question Saturday night after UFC 175, telling members of the media during his post-fight scrum where the recently-retired fighter is.
Sonnen failed a second drug test and was subsequently fired from both the UFC and FOX Sports. He had already announced his retirement from active competition.
“He’s laying low,” White said. “He’s apologized and he’s going to live his life and he’s doing his thing.”
White also stated that he asked Sonnen if he was financially set to do that, to which the former No. 1 contender replied, “I have every dollar you ever sent me.” White told him, “good for you because that’s a lot of money.”
Some believe Sonnen will be re-hired by FOX Sports and the UFC down the road. He is currently set to compete at Metamoris 4 against Andre Galvao in the main event.
