Chael Sonnen makes return to MMA, Signs with Bellator

UFC VETERAN Chael Sonnen is all set to make his return to MMA. The former UFC title contender has signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator MMA and this puts an end to the retirement that he had announced back in 2014.

Sonnen announced his retirement after failing an out of competition drug test. His last fight came against Rashad Evans back in 2013 and during his time in the UFC, Sonnen has challenged for the UFC Middleweight title on two separate occasions.

Sonnen has a record of 29-14-1 to his name at this point and completed his two-year suspension recently. Tito Ortiz is rumored to be the first opponent for Sonnen at Bellator.
