Nutritionist: Chael Sonnen 240, and ripped
Nutritionist Mike Dolce appeared recently on The Joe Rogan Experience, and said Chael Sonnen was 240 pounds, and ripped, ahead of his looming title fight with UFC Lightheavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Dolce confirmed the remarks on Twitter.
Hey Mr. Dolce. Just listened to you on Joey’s podcast, is Chael really walking round at 240 and ripped? Damn!

Chaell Sonnen, who is set to challenge Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight championship on April 27, 2013, is currently said to be walking around at 240 pounds, a weight that stacks right up there with the largest 205-pound fighters in the world.
Regardless of Sonnen’s physical body tone, his weight is the bigger talking point.
Despite being 35 pounds over the required weight of exactly 205 pounds, Sonnen still has roughly five months to work his way back down to the light heavyweight limit. Considering he is not in training camp because of his current coaching obligations on TUF reality show, it would seem Sonnen is in a good place.
