I'm on UFC's top 10 list twice! Watch the videos on this link: http://www.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=news.detail&gid=34538
This morning I worked with Trevor Wittman and Loren Landow. First, T and I reviewed tapes and went over more game plan. Then, Loren put me through a tough explosive power day. After that I had to go to court (don't ask why) and now Tess, Emmalie and I are going to put up the Christmas tree and make gingerbread houses. We will see if we have time for a movie or something after. I love my time with my family!!
We just got back to Denver from Montreal and I heard my fight was announced. I was offered the fight weeks ago but couldn't say anything until it was announced. I will be fighting Chael Sonnen on February 6 in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay. Chael is a tough wrestler and is coming off a win against Yushin Okami. I thought I would get a title fight or a fight with Henderson, but neither fight was available, so I accepted the fight with Sonnen. Honestly I was upset at first. Why should I be fighting a guy that lost to Demian Maia three fights ago? After I thought about it a while, I changed my mind. Sonnen is a great wrestler with decent striking and I don't want to wait to fight. Now I am pumped to fight and training has been going great! GSP is in town along with Rashad and all the guys. Let's do this!
