Love him or hate him, Chael Sonnen has the hype game figured out. Sonnen’s UFC contract has expired and he took this opportunity to get a laugh and some attention. During a fan Q&A session this past weekend Sonnen elaborated on what he demanded from Dana White.

“My contract with the UFC has expired, so I went to Dana White, and I went to him with a list of my demands because he’s getting my contract together. He thought this was a gag, but I was being serious because it’s not all about money with me.

It says, ‘Dana, my manager said you guys talked and are getting a contract together for me, I think you should be aware of my demands. First, Jello Biafra replaces Bruce Buffer as ring announcer. Secondly, every fight I’m in must be a No. 1 contender fight or a title match. If I lose, I get an immediate rematch until I win. No media can look me in the eye, or they will be removed from the room.

No. 5: Headset legalized through the commission so I can call my own fights. No. 6: No longer will I walk to the ring. I need to be carried. No. 7: Keys to your least favorite Ferrari – I’m not asking too much. No. 8: I can Skype or FaceTime my fights if I feel like flying. No. 9 – and it’s non-negotiable: tell ‘GSP’ to stop being such a dick. I’ll return his truck when I’m done with it.

See, I’m not all about money, people. There’s more to these contracts. They’re very sophisticated.”
