Henderson has been chosen by Chael Sonnen as part of his TUF 17 coaching staff, which already includes Clayton Hires, Scott McQuary, Jamie Huey, Mike Dolce, Vinny Magalhaes, and perhaps Randy Couture. More, Henderson will help coach Sonnen for this title shot. Further still, Hendo's knee has still not recovered 100%. |
"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?"
