Former UFC Contender Chael Sonnen Involved In Las Vegas Incident

According to reports, Chael Sonnen was involved in an incident in Las Vegas recently that included him being handcuffed.

Chael Sonnen took a page out of the book of Jon Jones recently.

Sonnen was involved in a Las Vegas incident that involved several other people. 

According to a report by MMA Fighting, the former UFC title contender committed misdemeanor battery against five separate victims. 

“Sonnen was issued a battery citation for each individual victim, then escorted off property,” Las Vegas Police Public Information Officer Larry Hadfield wrote in a statement. “Due to the fact the misdemeanors were committed outside of a police officer’s presence, an arrest was not conducted.”

In a video released to TMZ, a man that appears to be Sonnen is shown being walked down a hallway in handcuffs. 

Sonnen has not commented on the incident. He currently works on ESPN for UFC and Bellator broadcasts, and has a show on ESPN. 

Jones, though, did make a post on social media on the matter. 

“Chael Sonnen, I’m not gonna sit here and celebrate you getting battery charges against a female last night,” Jones wrote. “That would make me like you, and I’m nothing like you. Instead I will wish your family well, I wish the victims family well.”
