Chael Sonnen says Dan Henderson will help coach on TUF 17 and corner him against Jon

It appears that rumors or a growing rift between Team Quest fighters Chael Sonnen and Dan Henderson have been greatly exaggerated.

While Henderson may believe that Sonnen getting the title shot against UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones over the other list of suitable challengers loses integrity for the sport of MMA, that's not going to stop him from helping out a friend in need.

At least that's what Sonnen told Michael Landsberg on last night episode of TSN's Off the Record broadcast. Here's what he had to say verbatim:

"Henderson and I are obviously up to something, we're in cahoots. Henderson will be one of the coaches on this show with me and he will be cornering me on April 27th when I take what is rightfully mine, which is the light heavyweight championship."

Of course, in typical Sonnen fashion, the bold claims were made before anyone even told Dan Henderson about them. Thankfully Hendo a good sport and if Sonnen actually wants him to help out in either case, he'd be willing to do it. That's according to a text message conversation the former multi-divisional Pride champion had with MMA Fighting.

Henderson's official statement on the matter was:

"If he wants me there, I'm sure I would be there."
Gonna be a good coach for Cheal's guys and a decent corner man.

I think people keep taking Hendo's comment the wrong way when he says Sonnen vs JBJ is bad for the sport. He isn't insulting Chael at all, he is insulting DW for proving that your ability to fight and win doesn't matter, your PPV sales do.

Which really is no surprise, but people somehow thought that comment meant that Hendo was pissed at Chael.

"Take what is rightfully mine"...REALLY? I can't even go through this again...I really can't.

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

It would just get switched to an armbar and Henderson can't help with those.

Also calling it now Jones via flying triangle or jumping guard and triangle.

And someone said JDS is arrogant and fake. What to call that, then?
