Chael Sonnen is jumping the gun on any announcement concerning Dan Henderson and UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson. UFC president Dana White is set to host a media conference call later today, but Sonnen is already asking to be the replacement for Henderson.
“30 min to cement your legacy. Champ or Coward?” Sonnen posted on Twitter, in reference to facing Jon Jones in place of Henderson. “I make a lot more than you do… Show up in 8 days I’ll give you my purse.”
Strong words from Sonnen, who is set to face Forrest Griffin in December. We’ll have to wait for White’s announcement to see what the plans are going forward.
Sonnen made another post a few minutes later, writing, “I KNOW you will never fight me. Don’t be afraid. But I’ll always be the monster in the closet of your mind, little JJ.”
