While Chael Sonnen may have formally retired from MMA back in 2014 prior to being suspended for 2 years by the NSAC, talks of a ‘Chael Sonnen return’ have always been a subject of interest to the MMA community.

While many believed that Sonnen would return when his suspension was up on July 23rd of 2016, he has stated that he is retired, and will not return.

Despite that, Sonnen’s manager, Dave Doyle, believes Sonnen will most definitely return to MMA when his suspension is up, but only if the offer is right.

Ariel Helwani broke the news on UFC Tonight, which was transcribed by MMAFighting:

“I firmly believe if the right fight and offer come along Chael will jump at the chance to fight again. He is as competitive as they come.”
