Any will ill that may have appeared between Dan Henderson and Chael Sonnen following the announcement that Sonnen will face Jon Jones in April following a coaching stint on The Ultimate Fighter appears to be water under the bridge.

Sonnen has chose Henderson to be an assistant coach when he appears opposite of Jones during the seventeenth season of TUF. He spoke about the decision and his relationship with Henderson with MMAJunkie.com:

“We're on great terms (and) we've always been on great terms,” said Sonnen.

“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.”

“He's helped me through my whole career. The media can try to spin it however they want. But he's helped me with my whole career, and he's going to help me with this one, too.”

Given that both have title aspirations, what about the possibility of the two fighting?

“You've got to stick around, man,” said Sonnen. “I can't give you the conclusion. What fun will reading the book be?”
