UFC Quick Quote: Dan Henderson has a problem being involved in Chael Sonnen's 'little lie'

UFC light heavyweight Chael Sonnen violated the bro code by failing to inform Dan Henderson that he was going public with a cock-and-bull story about setting up Jon Jones at UFC 151. "Hendo" says he has a problem with that "little lie."


"Have you known Chael to tell the truth all the time? Or ever, for that matter? No, it's absolutely not true, there is no truth to that whatsoever. It's one thing for him to say what he says, but when it involves me in a little lie, I guess that's when I have a problem with it. But I didn't put a lot of stock into it because I think Chael's proven that not everything that comes out of his mouth is the truth. Usually he texts me when he's going to say something. I had no warning on that one."

UFC 161 headliner Dan Henderson, who fights Rashad Evans tomorrow night (June 15, 2013) in Winnipeg, didn't get any advanced warning when his friend and former training partner, Chael Sonnen, went public with the revelation that they conspired to set up Jon Jones in the wake of last year's UFC 151 debacle. "Hendo" (via MMA Fighting) insists he wasn't involved in the crackpot scheme, which he refers to as a "little lie," and doesn't appreciate being an accomplice to a crime that was never committed. Sonnen later clarified his statement by telling yet another lie, masked by a potshot at the Kardashians. Welcome to another edition of As the mixed martial arts (MMA) world turns.
