Chael Sonnen’s Thanksgiving Day Message

Chael Sonnen (27-12-1) and his mom sent out a video wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Of course, it was in typical Sonnen fashion.

During the short clip, Sonnen recalls about how one relative always spends the holiday while taking a shot at the NFL.

“My Uncle Mel has to watch football,” said Sonnen. “Watching football is really it. That and turkey will put anyone to sleep. As a matter of fact, when my athletic abilities diminish I’ll probably join the NFL so maybe I should pay closer attention.”

Currently, Sonnen is set to coach on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter. The opposing coach will be light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (17-1), who Sonnen has repeatedly taunted dating back to the cancelled UFC 151 show. The two will meet sometime in April after the show’s season finale.

The video closes with Chael and his mother wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. You can watch the message below:
