…and not because he wouldn’t take the fight.

“He was probably riding high after his victory. When we interviewed him after the fight, he said he was going out to celebrate. Then, he posted some photos of him with cervezas”, Sonnen said with a grin. “He probably tweeted out that challenge then, not realizing that he’d have to cut down to 185.”

During last night’s edition of ‘UFC Tonight’ on FOX Sports 1, Chael Sonnen, gave his personal thoughts on how Dan Henderson came to calling out Lyoto Machida once it was announced Weidman was injured.

Hendo lost his original bout against Machida, at UFC 157 last year, and in the process, lost his promised bid at Jon Jones.
