Chael Sonnen Clears Up Rumors Of Issues With UFC On FS1 1 Card

Chael Sonnen, co-host of “UFC Tonight,” cleared up any rumors that the international fighters may cause problems for the UFC’s debut on FOX Sports 1 later this year.

Reports started circulating that the likes of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Alistair Overeem could be in jeopardy of fighting due to a Massachusetts law that prohibits athletes from fighting without a social security number.

“The fight has never been in jeopardy,” Sonnen said, “and ‘Shogun’ and I have already been cleared.”

So, if we take Sonnen for his word, it looks like UFC on FS1: Shogun vs. Sonnen is good to go for August 17 from Boston’s TD Garden.
