Since Chael Sonnen was handed a 2-year suspension from the NSAC there has been much speculation as to whether or not he will return to the Octagon in 2016 when his suspension is up.
Sonnen has stated on multiple occasions that he will not return to fighting, but that hasn’t stopped people from guessing that he will.
Sonnet’s manager Mike Roberts told Fox Sports that he believes Sonnen will return to MMA, however his partner disagrees.
“Here’s what I would tell you — and Jeff (Meyer), my business partner and I have different points of view on this — if you ask Jeff, he will tell you he does not think that Chael will fight again. I absolutely believe Chael will fight again,”
“For a couple of reasons (I believe Chael will return) — one, I don’t think it will sit well with him going out the way that he did. The biggest reasons is that Chael is the nicest person you’ve ever met in your life personally, he’s also the most competitive person you’ve ever met in your life. I know for a fact he misses the competition.”
“More than the money, more than anything and he makes a lot of money now doing the things he’s doing, but it doesn’t quite fill that gap that you get from a competitive fight. I feel like he misses it.”
Only time will tell if ‘The American Gangster’ will actually return to the Octagon or not.
