Occasional training partners Chael Sonnen and Dan Henderson probably aren't as close as they used to be.

During Tuesday's MetroPCS online chat, Sonnen said he hasn't spoken to the fellow Team Quest fighter ever since Henderson posted some critical tweets.

Sonnen, of course, recently leapfrogged Henderson in the pecking order of the light-heavyweight division and got a coaching spot on "The Ultimate Fighter 17" and a promised title shot with champion Jon Jones.

Yes Hendo, knocking Fedors lights out followed by FOY win over Shogun isnt enough, arguably the greatest career on paper ever isnt enough, should have spent more time with racist banter you cant follow up.

At least when Hendo got that title shot against Silva he had not been finished in his previous title fight.....

I wonder if Hendo turned down another TUF gig. I don't blame him for being pissed, but if he said no to TUF and the only way to fight Jones is through TUF, then I can't really feel bad for him. If they didn't ask Hendo to coach and they just went with Sonnen, he has every right to be pissed

Dan was on the MMA Hour and Ariel asked him directly and Dan said he was never asked to be a coach on TUF and wouldnt have definitely done it if asked.

Obviously its fucked up to everyone who is not Dana White.

Dan said he doesnt blame Chael and would help him with training if Chael asks.

Also Dan said per his contract he has to fight 3 times by November he said he is most likely fighting on the Super Bowl weekend card in Feb.

3 times between Feb-Nov is a good amount for his age.

3x a year is more than most of the UFC roster

If I were Dan Henderson, I'd be pretty pissed too.
