Chael Sonnen today told MMAjunkie.com that not only does he expect Dan Henderson to help him prepare for a title fight against Jon Jones – but Henderson will be one of his assistant coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter 17."

"We're on great terms (and) we've always been on great terms," Sonnen said while adding that Henderson will also corner him against the light-heavyweight champ.

Sonnen downplayed any rift with Henderson that arose in the wake of his selection as a "TUF 17" coach.

Smart move by Dan, don't you guys think? While helping Sonnen prepare for his fight, Hendo may be able to pick up something that could better prepare him for his fight. Or maybe I'm just hoping he would. I would love to see Dan take the belt from Jones, then retire John Elway style.

I think you may be right. I haven't seen anything on Jones' coaches, is Bubba confirmed as one of them?

Wrestling, but there are very few on earth who can prep a fighter in MMA better than Hendo and Team Quest. Thats obvious.

Not at all quit trying to make something that aint there...Id rather Bubba Jenkins come to the UFC than an overpaid Alvarez....I would let them fight for the contract...

My point is Bubba Jenkins wrestling makes him way more of a contender than Alvarez...but Alvarez more than likely gets a huge deal....and IMO based on a few fights he oversized guys so he was exciting...I doubt he does well in the UFC and I will stick by that statement...

Alvarez is basically Frankie Edgar with not as good wrestling...He might surprise me but I dont think so.....Id rather have Bubba...and he will be on his way..

Bubba needs more than two years to be what Alvarez is in both striking and experience, if Bubba is a phenom.

Haha - - - "The Unicorn Slayer" Due to academic restrictions in his senior year @ Penn State couldn't pass gym class....apparently he didn't know what a double-leg takedown was either at thee Penn State. FAILURE.

Though he did "flourish" at ASU (thee party University) maybe he can teach JJ's team on TUF on how to bong a beer

Oh, and fellow INTERWEBBERS, day 1 of TUF finished filming today

Hendo said on MMA Uncensored that he is only going to go on TUF for a few days not the entire time.
