Dan Henderson: Sonnen’s title shot degrades sport
“I will always [have] love for Chael and don’t blame him for saying yes to a big opportunity,” Henderson, one of Sonnen’s occasional Team Quest training partners, tweeted.
However, after a knee injury cost Henderson a scheduled light-heavyweight shot with Jones this past month at UFC 151, Henderson watched as middleweight Vitor Belfort failed to dethrone Jones at UFC 152. Now, Sonnen, another recent middleweight title challenger, is moving into an immediate title shot. Jones, meanwhile, sits and waits.
“… Giving him that fight [right] now degrades the sport of MMA,” Henderson wrote.
