UFC President Dana White spoke to Heidi Fang with MMA Fight Corner to talk about Chael Sonnen being cut from the UFC, and how if Sonnen plays his cards right, the UFC President would be willing to give Sonnen another shot. Quotes come courtesy of mixedmartialarts.com
“What is your stance on everything that has happened with Chael,” asked Fang.
“It breaks my heart,” he said. “I care about Chael very much. Me and Chael have had a very good relationship. Behind the scenes, he’s a great guy.
“And he had four banned substances in his body… The relationship that I have with him, when he took the test, I would expect him to come to me and say ‘Hey, listen, I’ve got some bad news for you.’ It sucks.”
Fang then asked White what he thought about potentially giving Sonnen another shot in the future.
“I care about the guy very much, and hopefully… you know, it all depends on how he handles it. America’s a very forgiving place for guys who do the right thing. And you see what happens with the guys who dig their heels in and try to battle – it doesn’t work out well for them.”
