Chael Sonnen blames UFC for delaying the return of Conor McGregor

Chael Sonnen, a former UFC fighter, feels that Conor McGregor is to be blamed for his inactivity in his sport. However, he also feels that the UFC is also responsible for delaying the Irish superstars return. He recently posted a video on YouTube with the title suggesting that the UFC CEO Dana White is responsible for delaying McGregor’s return. The former two-division champion is facing the longest lay off in his career and Sonnen feels the UFC is playing a vital role in his delay.

During his video he said: “Now I’m not ready to clear the UFC. I’m not ready to clear that because I don’t have the information. But if I clear them, I would then be putting it on Conor, and I don’t know that I can do that. If I blamed the UFC, I would be clearing Conor.” McGregor himself has also showed his frustration at times for not allowing to compete under the UFC banner. However, with the Dubliner’s recent announcement, the fans can hope to see the 35-year-old back in action. Will the UFC CEO Dana White finally make the fight official?
