If you just can't get enough Chael Sonnen in your life, don't worry. UFC president Dana White doesn't think he's going anywhere any time soon.

White, who said he hasn't spoken directly with Sonnen since the middleweight's UFC 148 loss to Anderson Silva, believes the self-proclaimed "gangster" still has big fights ahead of him, not to mention a television career.

"He's got a lot of options," White today told MMAjunkie.com. "FOX loves this guy. He's going to end up with a television deal."

Yeah they will love him until he sticks his foot in his mouth one good time. You cant talk that much crap without eventually saying something offensive and it blowing up in your face.

I agree that he would need to tone it down a bit if he got a show. But then again what can he say that isnt more disgusting than an episode of Jersey Shore

Chael can easily be the Jim Rome just for MMA. I would love a weekly half-hour of Chael ranting about things happening in the UFC/MMA.

WAR CHAEL!

Uncle ChaCha can say whatever he wants....Fox LOVES him and Fuel TV can't stop drooling over him....a $$$ WIN-WIN-WIN $$$ situation

A TV deal? I don't see what he does that's so great just because he has a big mouth. They could give the job to any WWE-esque fighter and they would troll just as hard and get just as many people to buy into ironic buffoonery.

I think he is funny as fuck. Just not vs Anderson. So sense there's no title shot in his future at 185 I'll give it
