Chael Sonnen’s name is typically in the news when it comes to the world of MMA. Sometimes it involves fight announcements, or comments regarding other fighters, or even other sports stars.
This time, though, it is for marital bliss, as Sonnen has married longtime girlfriend Brittany Smith. The bride confirmed the marriage on Twitter, posting a photo with a countdown in terms of how long it had been since she married her best friend.
Sonnen is currently preparing for a match in August with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, so the honeymoon could be postponed a while. The two will square off on August 17 at UFC on FS1: Shogun vs. Sonnen from Boston.
