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."

The fact Chael mentioned the name Jello Biafra just blew my mind. Wouldn't expect him to listen to the Dead Kennedys with his conservative shtick

Chael is getting old. He's beginning to sound like the David Letterman of MMA.

how is that in any way remotely funny?

you sheep will laugh at anything Dana and Chael tell you too.

and jello Biafra is a fucking horrendous singer for an even worse band.

Imagine him calling his own fights as they're happening. That would be pretty funny.

I prefer this sort of schtick to the fake beefs if I'm honest. At least it's entertaining, unlike the fake beefs like the GSP "he's only hyping the fight he's a good guy" stuff or just the general fake/uninteresting threats.
