Dana White Confirms Intense Security Needed For Sonnen In Brazil – Sonnen Got Pen Shocked | UFC NEWS

Dana White in an interview with OCregister.

White comments on the security measures that had to be taken to get himself and Chael Sonnen in and out of Brazil safely.

“We had proper security with us” White said “We had like seven guys with us these are guys that mapped out the whole route. We literally landed at the airport in Rio a shuttle took us through customs, jumped on helicopters and helicopters took us right to hotel. I came in through front door we put him (Sonnen) through a side door. We had him in a holding room. We went down to press conference and he had a scrum. The reporters were getting really aggressive with him at the scrum. Somebody got him with a shock pin and all kinds of stuff like that. He went out the side door, I went out the front door. Helicopters took us back we got on a plane and got him out of there. I wanted to make sure we got him in and out safe”

“I am still getting texts, ’Did you and Sonnen get out of Brazil alive last night ? I have not heard from you. Give me an update’ I made him (Sonnen) ride in a different car than me”

    Rode in different cars? Damn, uncle Dana really has your back

  3. Shawn says:

    LOL! Well, that’s were his big mouth has landed him. You reap what you sow.

  4. Those security guards where to protect the brazilians from Sonnen. Dana was probably worried that Chael would go after anderson then and there and so took precautions.

  5. Nigga ass says:

    I guess they love him in brazil lol

  6. Mach00man says:

    Well thanks DW for finally admitting (sort of) that’s the reason why you put the fight in Vegas, instead of feeding us that BS about the UN conference!

  7. Jskxnzoan says:

    Dana wanted to protect Sonnen, when you’re the most loved man in brazil everyone’s going to want to mob you for autographs and pictures. Hahahahah

  8. Derek Schock says:

  11. Chartmonster says:

    Good to see Chael n Dana spending quality time together.. Chael the mw champ! FK those idiots in that 3rd world cuntry!

  12. Jb says:

    If the morons in south America can’t pick up on chaels act well go cry then. This dude knows how to get media attention and hype up a fight. He also loves taunting silva. Chael is a real chill guy he just takes a cue from wwe

    • Pijan says:

      At the same time though you know damn well if a Brazilian fighter or fighter of any other county said fuck America he would catch so much shit, even if it were meant as a joke. If any other fighter from another country said half the shit Chael said about America, they would probably be fired, joke or not. Americans are just as blindly patriotic as these Brazilians, if not worse.

  13. I Never Asked For This... says:

    Every action has a reaction. Marketing doesn’t justify Racism. Is it genuine racism? I don’t think so. But the Brazillians don’t own him any shits to give.

  14. Xaninho says:

    So basically the tough Oregon gangster was shitting his pants? Who would have known….

    And two cars lol! DW just thought:” I don’t want his ass in my car, if they wanna blow him up I don’t wanna be anywhere near him.”

    And still the so-called threats are highly overexaggerated.

  16. Jimmy says:

    Lol brazil is a bunch of butt hurt phaggots. one guy from america says something and none of them can sleep at night, chael has them so confused they are always asking “why he show no respek for our country brasiiiilllll”

  17. Junior says:

    That’s what happens when your a prick I would get the same crap if I said every thing about Americans

    • rayed says:

      No you wouldn’t…

      Everybody bashes America. We’re to of the fucking food chain. We’re alpha male.

  18. The natural says:
