Retired UFC star Chael Sonnen says he turned down a $5 million offer from Vince McMahon to leave fighting for WWE. Yahoo's "Cagewriter" picked up on the comments made in a new episode of his "You're Welcome" podcast with Georges St. Pierre as guest. Below is an excerpt:
"I was offered $5 million [WWE head] Vince McMahon...Now, I was still under contract with the UFC and I never took this to Dana. I handled it on my own. I told them 'No' and that was the end of that. I never told Dana White this story, but here's why I didn't tell him. I knew if I called Dana and said, 'I've got a $5 million offer from Vince McMahon,' Dana would have matched it."
