Chael Sonnen To Join UFC On FUEL TV Broadcast Team

In what should make for an interesting series of events, former UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen will join the FUEL TV broadcast team for UFC on FUEL: Munoz vs. Weidman.

Sonnen lost to Anderson Silva for the UFC title this past weekend via second round TKO.

Sonnen will be on the weigh-in show that airs this evening at 7 p.m. ET along with Jay Glazer and Stephan Bonnar. He will also be on the pre- and post-fight events Wednesday night.

    Would you numb-nuts wake-up and realise those are just ‘notified’ salaries to the Commission? Dana White has explicitly said many time before, top names on major PPV’s get well into 6 figures under the table. Silva has been earning 1mil plus for ALL his fights, for years. Sonnen would have pulled in at LEAST 1mill, not counting personal sponsorships he organised. They are both getting PAID.
