According to the ‘Original Gangster’, Chael Sonnen, the UFC featherweight champion is threatening to go after him and the UFC in court.
Sonnen said, on his podcast, that a Brazilian lawyer called him and said Jose Aldo is going to sue him for defamation if he doesn’t stop talking about Aldo’s injury.

“I get a phone call. So I answer it on the car speaker. It’s a lawyer from Brazil threatening to sue me for defamation. Her client? Jose Aldo. They said, ‘we won’t sue you if you stop talking about it.’ I said, ‘Hold on, I’ll go a step further than that, if I said it and it’s not true, I’ll give them an apology.’ I don’t want to go around saying the guy put out two X-rays if that’s not true, but I’m a little confused here. I parroted this information, I heard it and I repeated it, so where did this story come from? I heard this at a UFC press conference. The attorney said, ‘yeah, well pay attention in the next few days, you won’t hear the UFC saying it anymore because before we called and threatened you with a lawsuit, we called and threatened them with a lawsuit.’ I have to assume he’s telling the truth. Jose Aldo is threatening to sue me and claims that he threatened to sue the UFC. That’s a pretty big bluff. That’s a big enough bluff that I think he’s telling the truth.”
Uh-oh, maybe that’s why Dana White didn’t want to talk about Aldo’s injury at the post-fight press conference for UFC 189.
