Credit Chael Sonnen again with accepting that any fight, any day of the week attitude he carries.
After news broke that Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will not be able to make his co-main event fight with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson on June 15, Sonnen made himself available.
@shogunrua I HEAR BRAZILIAN CHICKEN IS OFF THE MENU. AMERICAN GANGSTER IS STILL AVAILABLE IF YOU WANT TO SEND YOUR WAITRESS OVER.

Sonnen (27-13-1) is coming off a loss to Jon Jones in his return to the 205-pound division. Rua (21-7) is expected to remain on the card.
