    Default Sonnen unhappy with promotion of UFC 167

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...on-of-UFC-167/

    As big of an event as it is, co-main fighter Chael Sonnen feels like his company isn't doing enough to promote the event:

    "You know, I'm on the card and I'm a huge fan. And outside of my fight and St. Pierre's, I don't know who else is fighting that night. The card as a whole has not been promoted. I think when you have Georges St. Pierre on a card, that at times they view that as enough. And it appears that that's the case. There's another storyline here as well that this is the 20th anniversary event of the UFC, so that's also been taking some headlines. But, I agree, I've seen the commercial and I saw the poster and Rashad and we weren't on either. That's up to them. They handle that, I handle the fighting."

    EXACTLY Chael. They handle that, you handle the fighting. So Shut-Up!
    Sorry Fedor, but Dan Henderson is the G.O.A.T.

    Gsp has sold more ppv's then anybody in the history of the promotion then anyone. If chael and rashad werent on this card it litterally wouldnt change shit.

    Well, Sonnen has not done anything to try to promote his fight.

    Or maybe he just got tired of his trolling, so now he limits himself to just say 2 or 3 absolutely unfunny things about Wand and Lil Nog?
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    You sure about that?

    If it was not for promo work put in by Sonnen, you wouldnt be responding to this interview question right now.

    Heavy promotion usually takes place in the 2 weeks before the event. Advertising too far out doesn't yield any additional significant results.

    Once the Kennedy / Natal card is over, the marketing machine will be in full swing.
