The mother of all sponsorship deals:Chael Sonnen confirms he's got a Coca-Cola deal

So it caused a bit of a stir and a lot of speculation when Chael drank a Coke at his 159 weigh in about whether he'd possibly gotten a Coca-Cola sponsorship



Seems like he's come out and admitted it

now that Sonnen's never going to get a belt he'll fade away. He's not relevant as a contender and he's not a crossover celebrity, he'd be better off trying to work his way in as a promoter/permanent employee of the UFC than trying to keep fighting. I know many people would be happy to hear him doing commentary during some of the fights.

Has this been confirmed by anyone other than, you know, Chael? Not that the guy's unreliable or anything.

I mean usually I'd take drinking a can of coke as irrefutable proof of quadrillion dollar sponsorships, but lately I've been seeing too many 12 year olds doing that to be sure.

I know a couple of twitter journalists have congratulated him, but they seem to be going by his word and the coke drinking more than any announcement by coca cola.

yeah I saw his cameo or whatever that was, that doesn't make him a crossover. He simply doesn't have substantial revenue generating ability outside of real estate or mma, to think otherwise is ignorant. Chael's great at what he does, he needs to save his body and use his brain by working for the UFC, like Chuck but way more involved and up front.

He actually could but I dubt he would, the UFC would most likely offer him a great job within the company, hopefully commentating with joe rogan or frank mir for fuel shows and whatnot
