Chael Sonnen speaks about Conor McGregor's injury

Chael Sonnen has insinuated that Conor McGregor might be faking his toe injury that forced him to withdraw from UFC 303. Speaking on the Good Guy & Bad Guy show, Sonnen questioned whether the recent injury snaps posted by McGregor were genuine.

He even claimed that there was no guarantee that it was McGregor’s toe. Sonnen thinks the toe was discolored and that doesn’t guarantee that it was indeed broken. He made a host of startling claims when speaking to Daniel Cormier.


Chael Sonnen questions Conor McGregor’s injury

Chael Sonnen recently suggested that Conor McGregor is in rehab for alcohol and drug abuse, which is the main reason behind his UFC 303 withdrawal. The Irishman clapped back in a since-deleted tweet. He posted several photos of his injured toe.

Sonnen, however, isn’t fully sold on that. On the Good Guy & Bad Guy show, he said, “I’m saying if he was in rehab, I was commending him. He resisted my condemnation and then claimed that he pulled out because of a discolored toe, a discolored toe that may or may not be broken.”

Sonnen then questioned whether the photos were actually of McGregor’s toe. He said, “And by the way, may or may not be his toe. He tweeted a picture of a discolored toe. He wasn’t in the photo. Like, all he had to do was pull the camera back another few inches and get his face and the foot.”


Chael Sonnen often makes wild claims that leave fans and fighters stunned. He occasionally rubs people the wrong way, and his recent beef with Jorge Masvidal is an example. Sonnen is seemingly now off Conor McGregor’s good book as well.

The Irishman, meanwhile, has never pulled out of a scheduled UFC fight before. The UFC 303 withdrawal was the first time McGregor backed out of a fight after it was announced.
