Chael Sonnen To Join UFC Tonight Full-Time Beginning January 29

Chael Sonnen made an immediate impact on the executives at Fox Sports with his guest appearances on Fuel TV’s UFC Tonight and other programming over the past year.

Now, starting January 29, Sonnen will be a full-time host on the news-style show alongside Kenny Florian. Sonnen takes the place of Todd Harris who previously handled hosting duties, and offered up the following in making his formal announcement on the show recently:

I was offered 60 Minutes, The Today Show, The Tonight Show; the even said they would change the name to The Chael Sonnen Show if I signed on to any of those sinking ships. The X Factor said I could judge and compete at the same time, but I signed on the dotted line that is important. I am going to join you in two weeks on January 29 on Fuel TV for UFC Tonight. I am going to bring the wisdom and the wits and we are going to sit side-by-side. You are going to be with the often-imitated, never-duplicated, the C to the H, to the A to the E to the L on UFC Tonight.

Sonnen is currently scheduled to face Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title later this year. He will also be on FX throughout the first few months of the year weekly as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter, which begins January 22.
