In an apparent response to that post, Sonnen told UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani on Wednesday: "It’s real. Everything about Wand is real. Well, except his eyebrows, forehead and record in PRIDE."
All of this begs the question, what the hell is going on down there?
This comes a week after UFC president Dana White told reporters that Sonnen’s coaching staff is scared to just be in Brazil because of all the hostility against Sonnen, from Silva and basically all Brazilians in general.
Can Sonnen actually be telling the truth when he says he’s leading both teams? Or is this just one big advertisement for UFC Fight Pass, likely to be the only place in the U.S. you’ll be able to watch this season?
