Chael Sonnen announced today that longtime training partner Dan Henderson will be his assistant coach on season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter. Sonnen will be coaching against light-heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones; The two are set to square off next April.
Sonnen said: “We’re on great terms, and we’ve always been on great terms. You’ve got to understand, what Dan and I have got is like the military. Our gym has got an order, and Dan is one of the coaches. He’s above me. I don’t talk back to Dan, and if Dan wants to say something, that would be the way it is.”
