Sonnen: UFC contract expired, here are my demands


Chael Sonnen might be the best hype man the UFC has ever had with his remarkable ability to build up a fight in the media with his crazy interviews and off-beat personality. As so without a contract in place, he has put forth a list of demands to UFC President Dana White:

"My contract with the UFC has expired," Sonnen said during fan-driven Q&A session at this past weekend's UFC Fan Expo. "So I went to Dana White, and I went to him with a list of my demands because he's getting my contract together. He thought this was a gag, but I was being serious because it's not all about money with me."

"It says, 'Dana, my manager said you guys talked and are getting a contract together for me,'" Sonnen explained. "'I think you should be aware of my demands. First, Jello Biafra replaces Bruce Buffer as ring announcer. Secondly, every fight I'm in must be a No. 1 contender fight or a title match. If I lose, I get an immediate rematch until I win. No media can look me in the eye, or they will be removed from the room.

"'No. 5: Headset legalized through the commission so I can call my own fights. No. 6: No longer will I walk to the ring. I need to be carried. No. 7: Keys to your least favorite Ferrari – I'm not asking too much. No. 8: I can Skype or FaceTime my fights if I feel like flying. No. 9 – and it's non-negotiable: tell 'GSP' to stop being such a dick. I'll return his truck when I'm done with it.'

"See, I'm not all about money, people. There's more to these contracts. They're very sophisticated."

punk doesn't give a shit? that's the kind bullshit you get from the major label 'punk' bands (automatically losing any punk cred) or the fashionista idiots (casualties, exploited, et al). people like to talk about and 'represent' punk, but ain't they ain't punk. because there's nothing punk about bands that you can purchase at the mall or hear on the radio. That ain't DIY, that so fucking co-opted it's on par with lady gaga or britney spears. find yourself some real punks and you'll see that punks actually care more than anyone else.

Isn't punk about not giving a shit?Alot of 'punks' here seem to give a shit....BTW IT'S FUCKING DEAD and billie joe used his millions of consumer dollars to exhume punk's decayed, safety pin riddled body, and continuously sodomise it at every album release party.But you won't accept that because it's been dead for 20 years and yet you still hold onto the catch call of 'Punk's Not Dead', it's sadder than the end of a Kenflo title run.

Are you the cool anti establishment hipster guy that likes a band until they get popular?
